Hi y'all! Today I have for you a review of a lip color from the Canadian brand boxx cosmetics! boxx cosmetics' founder, Sandra Milligan has over 16 years of experience in hair and cosmetics. Her brand offers luxurious, beautiful cosmetics, brushes and accessories at an affordable price while maintaining quality and staying environment-friendly.

Mai is described as a bright rose.
I would describe it as more of a dusty, light red with super subtle shimmer. According to the site, Mai is Japanese for brightness which is kind of cool that they give you a little insight as to why and how they named the lipcolor. Little things like that always get me :) This lip color contains hyaluronic acid (my new fave thing ever) to smooth and even out lines on your lips. You can also wear this on your cheeks for a little flush of color. Using this with a lip brush, it applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency kind of reminds me of chapstick that you apply with a brush. The color goes on super light but almost oxidizes within a few minutes and turns a shade darker. Pretty interesting! I wouldn't say it's anywhere near opaque though. Even at it's "darkest" it was still a nice light stain of the color. I also would go as far as saying that I'm not sure if this would work on girls with more pigmented lips unless you conceal them first.


Overall: This is a sweet, pretty color for your lips. I'm a teensy bit disappointed that it's not more opaque but I'm happy with the tint of color at the same time. It's insanely moisturizing due to the hyaluronic acid and my lips never felt dry while wearing this.
