Review: Rucy's Vanity Lip & Cheek in Red

Hi ladies! Today's post is going to be about this brand that I'm sure most of you haven't heard of. I found their cute kiosk when I went to Starmall (Shaw) a week ago because I was supposed to buy the Magic Pink Cream from Sophie Martin but unfortunately for me it was out of stock. Just when I thought I was going home empty handed,  I came across Rucy's Vanity!

So anyhoot. The SA was kind enough to answer all my inquiries about the brand, and I'm guessing she gets that a lot since she sounded like she knew what she was talking about. Turns out, Rucy's Vanity is a Korean brand that is just starting to make a name here in the country so they're sort of new in the korean make-up scene. Admittedly, I was sort of doubtful at first because of its price -  they're all so cheap eh! I haven't seen a korean BB cream being sold for under 200php (or less than 5 USD), I mean, have you? But that was all cleared out when the sales lady assured me that all products are FDA approved. So the first thing that I got was this tint, the reason I was in that mall in the first place! I guess the Magic Pink Cream's gotta wait.  :D

Probably the first thing that got me here was the packaging. Its small at 8ml but you only need a small amount anyway so this right here will last you a long time. And besides, if you run out you can always get yourself one because its uber affordable. If you're wondering how much I got this for, and I know that you are, I got this for only 70php ($1.70).

I have read a number of reviews on different Lip and Cheek tints from different brands and they all have one thing to say, they're drying. So far I have only tried the tints from Ever Bilena, Nichido and Tony Moly, and yes, I do love the color pay off BUT I wouldn't buy them again as they dry out my lips especially on a humid day. And a humid day means EVERYDAY in Manila. LOL

 So when I saw that this is a moisturizing Lip & Cheek tint, I was all keyed up! The first thing that I did when I got home was to try this on my cheeks! 

As much as I want to show you a picture of me wearing this tint on my cheeks, I can't. I'm currently breaking out due to PMS but I promise to post one when it clears up. 

You only need a small amount of this product if you want to apply this on your cheeks. You certainly don't want to look like a clown, now, don't you? This size right here should be enough to cover both the apples of your cheeks. Take note that blending is key to achieve that natural flush. 

See how pigmented it is? That's why blending is so important! 

So now I'm going to show you how it looks like on my lips :)

Here are my BARE LIPS for reference 



  • Affordable at 70php ($1.70)
  • Moisturizing 
  • Long lasting (especially when used as a cheek tint)
  • Non-comedogenic 
  • Has collagen for more plump lips
  • Has good color pay-off


  • Only available in Ever Gotesco and Starmall 

And finally, here's me wearing the tint on my lips! Excuse my unruly hair! Haha! 

How about you? What do you think of this product? Your thoughts are MOOORE than welcome!

Thanks for reading my blog!
See you on the next one!
As always....

  4. Hi Jem! This product looks interesting. I gave away one of this on my previous giveaway. Never thought this is awesome. I want to try it too! Do you think it's available in all Starmall branches? We have one here in Alabang. I hope I can buy it from there.


    1. Hi Gen! I'm not so sure about that. I just checked their fanpage on Facebook and so far they only have kiosks in Edsa-Shaw & Ever Gotesco. If you're ever near Megamall or Shangrila, just try to drop by Starmall! :D

  5. hi girl....where's the exact location of the store? thanks

    1. Hi anj! The last time I was in Starmall, which was only 2 weeks ago, I couldn't find their stall anymore. I'm not so sure now if they still have a physical store but you can still buy their stuff online. Just search for Rucy's Vanity on facebook. 😀
