Captivate is the lip tint that Kjaer weis launched for autumn/winter 2015. It is a lovely warm brown with gold particles.
PERFORMANCE: it is a sheer lip tint with a semi mat finish. I love the base colour (a super wearable my lips but better colour), but I am not a fan of the gold glitter. I find that it is too obvious.
The texture is comfortable and easy to blend. It doesn’t require a lip balm underneath. The colour lasts on the lips for about a couple of hours without eating/drinking. This is a suitable shade for those that have a lovely tan in summer and it would go very well with a bronzer. It is also ideal if you like some sparkle on the lips.
I love Kjaer Weis makeup, but this is not my cup of tea. I would have preferred the base colour without the glitter. The iridescent finish is too obvious for my style.

SCENT: none. This colour though has a sort of sweet taste (like Dream State)
HOW TO USE IT: it can be used with your fingers as a stain and as a lip tint if applied with a lip brush. As it contains some golden glitter, you can apply it over anther lipstick/liptint in the centre of the lower lip to give an illusion of fuller lips.
If you apply more than one layer the glitter becomes very obvious.
it is a warm brown with gold particles. The particles are noticeable, especially if you apply several layers of colour.
