Here’s another lipstick post for you. I was scouting for a nude lip color when I scanned the color selection of Hayan’s Slim Lip Color in Starmall, Shaw Blvd. few months back.
Everything you need to know is found on the box. I like the ‘how to use’ part because it has tips on how to apply the lipstick to achieve perfect application.
From the outside
The casing is really nice – black, shiny, and has a gold accent. It’s very slim and will fit your purse perfectly. The branding is also laser printed along the casing. The color is indicated at the bottom part of the case.
From the Inside
Looking at the whole bullet the length is reasonable for its price. It has a rounded tip and molded perfectly inside the casing.
I liked the color when I first saw it. Not totally nude but more of a gold because it appears to have a metallic sheen in it.
It’s very easy to swipe and the bullet shape makes it easier to glide along the contours of the lips. No need for lip balm if you have Dry lips, the castor oil did the trick. It’s highly pigmented especially the other colors.
As for the swatch on my lips, unfortunately, it doesn’t agree so much to my skin tone. I become darker when I sported this lip color. This needs a strong eyes in order to look good. It doesn’t create a statement when applied alone. Maybe this will work if I will apply a baby pink lip gloss on top.
If you want to achieve the same color as the bullet, it is best to mute your natural lip color with a concealer or a lip primer.
The product set on the lips, the pigment was absorbed. This made the lipstick not to transfer too much on surfaces your lips landed to – tissue, glasses, mug. It doesn’t feel like you have lipstick on very lightweight.
It has a subtle scent of the rose (or the small kisses we place inside our pencil case).
It has a decent staying power too, 3 – 4 hours or until I ate my lunch. If you do not purse your lips that much it will stay longer.
Nonetheless this lipstick is very good. I can work on it.
