True You Cosmetics | Ultimate Lux Lipstick "Lynne" | Review

True You Cosmetics is a unique new brand with an "Iconic Lip Collection". The Collection is heavily inspired by the beauty and style of old Hollywood favorites such as Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, and Lena Horne.  The Iconic Lip Color Collection features six super-hydrating lipsticks, six weightless lip glosses and two trendy lip palettes consisting of three fun colors. Each color is named after its own Hollywood icon.

I'm reviewing the Ultimate Lux Lipstick in "Lynne", who's named after True You Cosmetics; CEO and Creative Director, Jessica Truesdale. It's a middle named passed on from her dad to she & her brother!


In the above pics I did a side by side comparison of the lipstick with & without a clear gloss on top. Not a huge difference but it came out slightly sheerer. 

Glow: I love the cute packaging! Also the lipstick is really rich & creamy and provides full coverage with a minimal amount. It's also very hydrating and long wearing.

Glare: While the quality and presentation of this lipstick is good, I just don't think this particular color is flattering on my skin tone at all. Just by looking at the lipstick it resembles more of a nude color but unfortunately it didn't quite translate that on my lips. It came out more of a powdered pink and it isn't easy for everyone to pull off this type of pink. I just can't imagine myself realistically wearing this shade.

Would I Recommend It? I would! And they have other great shades to choose from.

Overall Glam: I'm really loving the story behind True You Cosmetics, I think it's cute that each lip shade is named after a beautiful iconic legend from our past! I also have my eye on one of their lipglosses "Josephine", named after the iconic Josephine Baker. The shade is a beautiful dark plum, perfect for the fall/winter.

The Lipstick is currently retailed at $18. To purchase or to learn more about True You Cosmetics please visit their website www.trueyoucosmetics.net .
