Moisture Touch Lipstick | The Face Shop

Sunday, February 19, 2017

I only had one red lipstick my entire life. That's because I never really thought I could pull off the red shades. Whenever I go shopping for lipsticks, I usually go for the lighter pink shades (the almost nude tones) because I like subtle lip colors. For the past few months, I've shifted from lipsticks (been using Dior Addict for 3 years) to lip tints (usually from the body shop/ etude house) which lasts way longer and are much cheaper. You know me, always frugal on makeup but not on skincare. ;)

This February, I made a random purchase while walking around BGC. It was impulsive buying. Boo me; but it wasn't expensive, so it's fine. I was actually looking for a concealer but when I got in Face Shop, I saw the sales ladies sporting red lippies while assisting college students who are trying on different shades of red. So I thought, "It wouldn't hurt to give red lippies another try, right?" So there you go, I jumped right into getting two - RD04 Red Vodka and RD02 Red Rising.

The sales lady did a pretty good job suggesting these two. It's just perfect for February! Lippies are priced at 790 Php, btw :) It's a fair price for those who are experimenting on lip colors and are still figuring out which lip color suits 'em best.

From left: RD04 Red Vodka, RD02 Red Rising. The red vodka shade is a bit darker the red rising shade. Some of my friends said it doesn't have much difference when applied, but I think it does. The red rising shade is a much lighter and "glowy" shade. I think it gives my face a bit of (my much needed) glow. I think it's perfect to wear during the day while the red vodka shade is perfect for night outs with my girl friends or a dinner date.

I was using the red rising shade in this photo. :) It has a more subtle red shade so I think it's okay to wear in the office everyday. ;) 

Value for money: ❤❤❤❤
I'm giving this 5 hearts because it's super affordable! It's just 790 Php, you guys!

Color: ❤❤❤❤
It is super pigmented; however, there's not much colors to choose from so I'm giving this 4 hearts.

Moisture: ❤❤❤❤
I'm giving this 5 hearts as well because it does not dry my lips even if I don't put on some lip balm.

It glides perfectly because its texture is like a lip balm's. I think, however, one of the downsides of having a moisturizing lippie is that it gets smudged and transferred a lot! Next thing I know, I have lipstick on my bread, spoon, and sooo much on my straw. It gets wiped away so fast. So I have to re-apply over and over again and I don't like the hassle of re-applying lipstick after every meal and/or drink.So I'm giving this 1 heart.

OVERALL: ❤❤❤❤❤ (3.75)
It's a fair purchase. :)
from my heart to yours,
