It’s highly doubtful that the seven “secret” ingredient weapons Doubleglow7 is touted to contain will give you gorgeous, glowing skin as claimed. First, there is no such thing as secret ingredients because FDA and EU regulations mandate that all ingredients be listed on the label. However, what you will get with this luminous face balm is a nice option for highlighting the cheeks, eyes, and other areas of the face where you want to add some shimmer or create soft highlights. The tiny jar packaging means that using Doubleglow7 as a highlighter instead of an all-over primer will make it more financially friendly to your budget. Note: The wax content of this product makes it ill-advised for those with blemish-prone skin.
A luminous face balm that gives instant radiance and clarity to the skin whether worn under, over, or instead of foundation. Worn under makeup, Doubleglow7 acts as a primer, creating the perfect canvas for flawless foundation application. When worn over makeup it gives the skin that “oomph” that you might get after a day at the spa or an extra three hours of sleep. Doubleglow7 contains seven essential skin nourishing ingredients: Jojoba, Aloe Vera, Lily Extract and Illuminating Pearls as well as Vitamins A, E and F. These seven secret weapons conspire to give you gorgeous, glowing skin.
Isostearyl Isostearate, Ozokerite, Isostearyl Alcohol, Diisostearyl Malate, Polybutene, Hydroxy Stearic Acid, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba), Cyclopentasiloxane, Silica, Mica, Iron Oxides, Isopropyl Myristate, Phenoxyethanol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Propylene Glycol, Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean), Retinyl Palmitate, Carthamus Tinctorius Extract (Safflower), Linoleic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lilium Candidum Bulb Extract, Butylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben
If you've heard the story of how DuWop came to be, you might think it has a familiar ring to it, and you'd be right—it's basically the same old story you hear about lots of these celebrity makeup artist lines. As the DuWop story goes, a pair of hair and makeup artists, in this case Cristina Bartolucci and Laura DeLuisa, working deep in the "Hollywood beauty trenches," began to realize that there was a need for some products that weren't on the market. (Although with thousands upon thousands of cosmetic products being sold all over the place, what the heck could they possibly have thought was missing?)
Apparently dismayed at the paucity of options (but we ask you, how then were they doing their jobs as makeup artists), and determined to improve matters, they took to their kitchen and started creating products themselves. Shortly thereafter, DuWop was born, and women everywhere now had new and improved and previously unavailable choices when shopping for makeup at Sephora and select department stores that retail the DuWop line. These two ladies are indeed excellent makeup artists, but their products are neither unique nor different from numerous others in any noticeable way. And we can guarantee you that the formulations are not something that came from someone's kitchen.
DuWop is best known for its Lip Venom products. In fact, the company claims to have created the first-ever lip plumper. That claim may or may not be true, but either way it's a dubious badge of honor given how bad such products are for the lips. Anyone who has ever experienced the irritating and drying effects of any of the Venom products should be well aware that creating such irritating products is not really anything to brag about.
Outside of their plumping products, is there anything worthy of your attention if you come across this sleekly packaged line? Yes, there are some, but certainly not all of them; some are mediocre and some are nicely formulated, but there is nothing in the line that you can't find elsewhere. DuWop is just one more option in a crowded market of makeup products.
The company offers a very good concealer, blush/bronzer, lipsticks, and lipliner. The irony with DuWop is that the products they are best known for are the products you should avoid; basically, any of those that end with "Venom"!
DuWop isn't quite the leading-edge brand it's made out to be, nor are the products as revolutionary as they claim—these products don't even amount to a skirmish. However, their price point for the most part is modest, the overall attitude is fun from an experiment-with-color perspective, and because Sephora stores offer testers for every product, so it's easy to try items yourself before making the decision to buy. We doubt that most women will assemble a full makeup wardrobe from the DuWop line, but DuWop is fine for selecting some products if you prefer shopping for cosmetics in an upscale environment.
