Thursday Thrift: Colorfull Color Stain Lipstick for Less!

Hi folks! I know, I deserted this blog, I’m just pretty busy in career and life. Hehehe and busy managing my skin color, I become so tanned eh, because of the tyranny of my summer 2013 and probably will become dark since I have my two summer destinations pa.teehee! Atleast boredom will not visit me anymore. Hehe. I’ve been in La Union last two weeka with my colleagues friends. As we enjoyed the sand and the beach, we’ve also tried surfing!Yey! One of our bucket list was done. And kamusta naman ang kulay ko? Tama na ang feeling Maja Salvador. hehe

Anyways, the day I came back from La Union, I received some lipstick. Three colors exactly. I get nosy since I’m not into bright colors, and nude lippies are my fancy.

Here’s my indicative review:

PROS?

 A local brand that came in a standard tube, a predominant color when you tried to search in your make up kit. A pocket-friendly that suits for $2 only. It is creamy and glides easily. A semi-matte finished-look while scented free. It has the power to lasts up to 5 hours. (I put mine from 8AM and lasts til’ 12nn) Nine shades to select.

CONS?

 This brand is rare, so it’s hard to find elsewhere. A matte lipstick and makes the line of the lips visible. A little dry feeling that may stain your clothes.You wait for five minutes for color to set.

 

MY FINAL VERDICT?

 As I tried it a while ago, it could be an alternate with your matte lipstick collection. It is great for summer but I feel the dryness after an hour. It takes me to put lip balm to moisturize.

 MY NOTES?

 Try to place it on the refrigerator at night, then use in the morning to see the opaque and satin finish. You can put lipgloss for glossy effects and you can use fingers to dab the products on your lips for a natural finish look.  You can try other shades, (Russian Red, Red Voltage, Marveloue Pink, Magenta Mania, Pillow Pink and Pecan Fudge.)

I am excited when I got my first Korean make-up. Yes!this is my first time to review a expensive brands to Korean cosmetics. I was prospecting Etude House but the time didn’t permits me. Anyways, lucky that I received from a generous friend, the Laneige Snow Crystal Sheer Glossy Lipstick.

I’m not high-end consumer products, but I know what’s more expensive and more capable of pocket. I think some of cheaper price also have high end results. Just like other international brands have here in the Philippines.

A $23.3 lipstick is too expensive for a budget-conscious make up enthusiast like me. (but when we are talking about shoes, wala nang patumpik-tumpik pa, basta gusto ko yun sapatos, 1k is not a big deal.) Hahaha I am a shoes addict.:) But when I want to buy posh make -ups, I consider saving money for me to get the shades I like.

PROS?

This Korean lipstick packaging looks elegant and chic, inside its packaging coloured pink. It is very moisturizing that smells like cotton candy but not taste like plastic. Its super natural looking, but its gloss isn’t overwhelming. It was available in the Philippines and I don’t have allergic reactions.

 

CONS?

The packaging box was written in Korean-so you don’t understand the label; it is too expensive for a lipstick- seems like a lip balm! Too soft that tends to melt easily and doesn’t last on me; others may not like the sheer pigmentation

 

MY FINAL VERDICT?

Not for me now, it could be just another collection in sheering lipstick, nothing more than that, Its super natural-looking enhance the moisture of your lips.I might try the lipstick from Etude House , though.

 

 MY RATING?

Packaging: 4/5 (Elegant looking and chic)

Price: 1/5 (Too expensive for just sheer glossy lipstick)

Long lasting: 2/5 (Frequent re-application)

Overall rating: 2/5

My Notes?

Always keep it in a cool dry place because it has the tendency to melt easily.

If you’re not fan of sheer lipstick, try other shades available.

It is good for base before you applied your favorite lipstick.
