With the VDL + Pantone collection comes three lip oils. Two of the shades are tinted and the one here, No.1 in Greenery, is clear.
The wand is a plastic stem with a tiny roll ball at the tip. The consistency and texture is comparable to a lipgloss rather than an oil, in my opinion.
It does glide on smoothly and moisturizes the lips well. It has a very faint fruity scent, what I can best describe as a mix of pear and grape. You can wear this alone or over a lipcolor to give the lips shine and dimension. I like this product because it applies without feeling sticky or leaving a thick layer on the lips. It absorbs into the lips with lasting adhesion, instead of just sitting on top like a barrier or wearing out and drying the lips.
Continuing with the VDL + Pantone collection, is the Expert Color Cheek Book Mono. There are two shades: No. 1 in Coral Vitality and the one I bought, No. 2 in Tawny Orange.
The product is a cream blush that comes in a mirrored compact, with a magnetic closure.
The texture is slightly more oily than creamy in my opinion. It reminds me of a tinted lip balm. However, it applies smoothly on the skin. It is not highly pigmented but it gives a nice flush color with one layer, and the color can built up slightly with layering. It has a dewy finish and could probably work well as a base for powder blushes.
This is a product that I would wear if I wanted to keep my makeup minimal or on days that I want to go without foundation. I tested out as a lip gloss as well but it settles in the lines. Overall, it’s not a bad product but it’s also not a favorite of mine. I prefer cream makeup products with a thicker consistency.
