This is another edition of lipstick review! As I’ve mentioned in my last post, I have accumulated a few lipsticks, especially last year. But for this review, I will write about something that I’ve had ages ago!
In general, I prefer coral/peach tones for my lipstick – I think it is a pretty safe color and matches my skin tone. But there are times I also wanted to achieve a “natural look” or tone it down on the lip department when sporting heavy eye makeup so having nude lipstick is a must for me.
I bought this from Topshop years ago – I can’t remember exactly when! Even if I use it for a lot of things, it is still pretty full because I often forget to retouch my lip color or have another shade in my travel purse in my handbag. Here is a photo with a layer of lipstick applied on my lips.
As you can see, it is not that pigmented. It does a decent amount of coverage especially because my lips are pigmented, too.
It is a cheap lipstick and the price is comparable to drugstore brand lippies. It is quite drying so I have to make sure to moisturize my lips before application. Doesn’t have any staying whatsoever and it is just a “normal” lipstick.
Despite that, I love the fact that this is layerable. I love using this lipstick when I want to do gradient lip with Korean lip tints. Or, to “tone down” a heavy lipstick color. And of course, I can wear it on its own if I want to have nude lips – the possibilities with this is endless!
It is not a perfect product and I don’t expect it to be given the price I paid for it. I am happy what it can do for me and hope to use it until the last swipe on my lips!
