Before I’ll review this lipstick I want to give you a piece of logical yet worthy advice: always, no matter what, swatch the lipstick on your lips before buying it. If you don’t apply it or not sure in the color, toss it.

Since I was in a hurry, I quickly swatched the product on the back of my hand and opted for the pink shade. Who might have ever known that this pink shade would turn out to be too pink on my lips?

The packaging is stylish. It’s packed in a dope golden tube.

The prismatic shape is advantageous here but if you use it a lot, the edges smooth out.

The swatch on the back of my hand in the store looked mauve pink and way darker.

The lipstick is comfortable on my lips. It doesn’t dry out or crease or feather. However, it’s still better to wear it over a lip liner.

The shade corresponds to what was promised on the official site.


The consistency is really gel-like and creamy. The color is pretty thick for such a satin lipstick.


I think it’ll flatter fair-skinned and cool-toned gals. My tone is warm, besides, I get tanned in summer so the shade counteracts with my complexion too obviously.

I don’t know how to assess this product right because I can’t say that it’s bad or anything. It’s just the shade that doesn’t suit me.


But in fact, if I look closer at the shade, I can’t see any difference with the most affordable lipsticks. At all.

The list of ingredients is better, that’s true, as well as the quality and wearability. But the shade might be an option only for winter and only for pale skin.

The lipstick accentuates my skin texture, so be careful. And what would you like to get from a creamy product?

But I know that it doesn’t dry out my lips but nourishes them instead.

And this is how it looks on my face:

On the one hand, I like it. But on the other, I don’t wear any makeup here. If I add some foundation, mascara, and contouring, this lipstick shade would look odd over me.

But, I found the way out - I use it as an eyeshadow and blusher. But make sure to set it with powder then.

In the end: I can recommend this lipstick because of its pleasant and satin texture. But only in other shades.

And please, swatch it well in store or look through a pile of reviews if you purchase it online.
