Make-up, which does not get smudged during and after training and also during the shower afterwards and looks great all day long : this is exactly what Jennifer Lapidakis promises with her brand STRONG fitness cosmetics . But can that really work? Before the foundress presented her product in the VOX program "The Cave of the Lions" on October 8, 2019 and fought for the financial support of the jury, we have already subjected the product to an endurance test.

Strong Fitness Cosmetics: What is special?
"The products are designed to withstand any challenge, so we've developed the SWEAT TECH range, products that are smudge, water and sweat resistant, " explains Jennifer Lapidakis. The correct composition was found by tests with a total of 25 athletes from the Sport University Karlsruhe.
A big difference to other products that are available so far, according to the founder: It is "(...) not a maskless camouflage make-up, but thanks to a special composition with powder particles light and comfortable to wear."
That's how the idea for fitness make-up came about
Like many other things, Jennifer Lapidakis came up with the idea for the novel cosmetic products in the midst of everyday life and has to do with her preference for CrossFit workouts:
"When I went to workouts after work in 2015, I was approached by a friend about why I was such a chick and got make-up on training, the make-up would not hold and smear anyway. The fact that I was already made-up for the work and that I just did not make up my mind for the training made me realize how impractical the usual make-up is, why can not there be a make-up that I apply in the morning and that myself? So I started searching for the perfect sports products and when I did not find any, I got the idea to develop my own products and the idea for STRONG fitness cosmetics was born. "

STRONG fitness cosmetics in the test: holding mascara, eyeliner and Co.?
Editor Tina has tested mascara, eyeliner and make-up: "At first I was skeptical - cosmetics that not only withstand training but also do not blur after showering - can this work? I like to do workouts that do it all for me I could not imagine that at first.
But what can I say: I was completely sweaty after training, but mascara and eyeliner sat despite repeated towel use still great . Even after showering everything looked good, only the make-up had become a little less - at least a really very slight trace on my towel. But I did not feel the need to work it out. "
Editor Maren has tested the Color Up Lip Stain-Matt: "Strong's Lip gloss, declared a 'fitness cosmetic', is definitely one of the longer-lasting lip colors, and the color lasted for several hours.
For me, the color 'Grape Vine' was far too intense. For the gym or the morning jogging so rather not suitable. But if you're looking for a long-lasting and kiss-perfect lipstick with a matte finish, then STRONG's Color Up Lip Stain-Matt is a great choice. "
If it is resistant to anything, how can I remove the makeup? Does make-up remover for waterproof make-up work?
Jennifer answers: "Yes, STRONG products can not be removed with the help of water and washing gel, but like water-based make-up, they can best be removed with an oil-based cleaner or micellar water we are already developing our own cleaner that will remove our products perfectly, so if you want to stay up to date, feel free to follow us on Instagram ????. "
The products of STRONG at a glance
Currently there are the following products from STRONG:
- Make-up: 27, 95 Euro
- Mascara: 18, 95 Euro
- Eyeliner: 14, 95 Euro
- Lip Stain: from 9, 95 Euro
- Introductory set with make-up, mascara, eyeliner and bag: 59, 95 Euro
All products have been dermatologically tested and are 100% animal-free . However, a close look at the ingredients using Codecheck has shown that, for example, the make-up contains silicones (which applies to many cosmetic products) that, while providing smooth and silky skin, are "slightly questionable" or even "questionable (applies to cyclopentasiloxanes (silicones)). For those who prefer to use silicone-free cosmetics, this product is therefore unfortunately out of the question.
