If I end up liking it, I can always go back and buy some more, right? Impulsive buyer moments are ones that I bid good bye in 2016. Haha. So I went with Dreamy in the end because out of all the 16 shades that they have to offer, it seemed the most neutral one to me.
So did it or did it not put a smile on my face? Read on to find out! xx
Packaging: So the product itself is housed in a hard plastic tube. It comes with a doe foot applicator which I think is a plus because then, you can be as precise with application as you wish to be. It's much easier to get around as well, especially into the inner corner of the lips even without the help of a lip brush or lip liner.
Fragrance: Fortunately it doesn't come with any smell.
Color: The color I would describe as a soft brown coral with a finish that starts off with a sheen and eventually turns into deep matte.
Finish: When you apply it, it starts out with a slight sheen (refer to the picture below) and then it eventually turns into matte.
Longevity: Longevity wise, it's impressive. It holds up pretty well and unless I eat a hearty meal, there really is no need to retouch. Such a time saver, I tell you!
Price: In stores, this retails for about 350php ($7.35) but when you do buy it in online shops which you can easily find on Instagram, you can get it for about 265php depending on the shop that you buy it from.
Downside: If you don't prep your lips well enough, it can be very drying to them puckers. Also, the longer that you have it on, the heavier it tends to feel. And because it's very matte, you have to remove it with a make up remover. Otherwise, you're just going to be tugging and hurting your lips trying to remove the lipstick.
Tips: When applying this, don't rub your lips together. Let it settle on its own for a couple of seconds and you will find that the finish seems more flawless that way. Another thing I've found is that the most effective way to remove this is with virgin coconut oil. You can use whatever beauty oil you have on hand, but I like to use VCO because it's what I have right now. I find that it's the easiest and most gentle way to remove this lip product while also providing moisture for my lips. It's basically hitting two birds with one stone! :)
And finally, here's how it looks on me on two different occasions.
Overall rating: 4.75/5
