Where I buy? Sephora Singapore
How to use? Starting from the center of your upper lip, glide the stain to each corner. Repeat the process on the lower lip. If you have thin lips, try to draw with lip pencil first in the outer line corner on your lips to make it appear bouncier. I suggest you to use lip care, if you feel using exfoliation wasting your time before you apply the lip matte to avoid the chronic dryness that will potential occur.
Possibilities of acne/allergic or any trouble for the ingredients? Possibilities of allergies – chronic dry and internal bleeding if the it’s use continuously with proper treatment for the lips
How does it smell? Smell like a caramel mixed vanilla. If you like pudding then you will like the smell.
How does it feel in skin? Light weight, not dry off, got feel a little bit moisture probably because the ingredient contained Dimethicone, which make it easy to spread and moisture the lips. Feel like I don’t even apply the lip matte
How long does it takes to dry off? Right after I apply
How many days it takes to see the results? Been using it for about 1 years, always be a get- to- go lip matte.
How many times does it takes to see the results? Only need 1 time, during the trying at Sephora store
How long the testing does takes? I always use it for about minimum of 6 hours and maximum of 10 hours
For the application, you can try out this ways: You can take your lip balm and then mixed it with lip matte, but be careful of not mixing it too much because then the color will change and you might not like it. if that’s happened you need to find eyeshadow palette that have same color with the lip matte. However, for this Sephora Cream Lipstain, I don’t think the experiment is needed. You can just use lip balm or lip care and let it dry then apply the lip matte.
For pre-cautious: I have no ideas if it’s really is infused with Avocado oil and Vitamin E or it’s just for marketing purposed to attract customer. However, I do believe that you still need to maintain your lip moist by exfloating it, do the lip care treatment because the result of applying matte lips too often is chronic dry and if it’s untreated will be in result of internal bleeding.
Ratings: 4 out of 5 stars
High coverage lip colour
No dryness occurred during the test
Comfortable in lips
Result in smooth and attractive looking lips
Most of the color is attractive, and it’s my favorite color for my Asian skin tone(cool undertones) there is pink, mauve, purple, nude, brown and black color to choose and this kind of colours can be use during day light.
Re-application needed when you drink or eat hot food such as, hot tomato soup or hot coffee.
applicator is not easy to use for my thin upper lips
Do note that each color have different kind of color ingredient that will result in different texture. I notice that the ‘pink soufflé texture is completely different with ‘Marvelous Mauve’. The pigmented and good texture in my testing experience as I ranked below:
#1: Sweet Raspeberry
#2: Copper Blush
#3: Marvelous Mauve
My color preference for a first time buyer, if you want pink or mauve color then choose ‘Marvelous Mauve’ and If you like nude brown, then choose ‘Copper Blush’.
Will I repurchased the product? The lip matte packaging is basically plastic with sample of the color in the outside, I have no idea if it’s transparent or not, the applicator is standard and black in color. The tips is not chubby nor skinny – just alright. The application with this applicator kinda just okay. Not easy to apply for my thin upper lips, but I prefer Skin O2 kind of applicator. After swatch, it’s easy to just wash it off with soap. There are no problem with the applicator or the packaging but seems like the packaging is not made in good quality, somehow it feel to me that it’s easily broken
Will I recommend the product? Yes, I will.
