Innisfree Creammellow Lipstick Review

IMG_1621

Ladies and Jellyspoons

This is actually my first time trying out Innisfree cosmetic products. I have been using their hand creams for a while and I’ve been loving it, so it’s high time I tried their lipsticks as well.

I only picked up one of their lipsticks from the Creammellow line. I got number 8.

This is what it looks like in the packaging:

And here it is swatched on my lips:

As you can see it’s a very vivid lipstick, even though I only applied one to two layers. The colours that look very dark in the tube will need less layering. It’s quite balmy even though the colour is strong and pay off is really good.

They retail for ₩12 000, which is a higher price point than the average Korean brand lipstick, but Innisfree is famous for using natural products and that is something that is more costly. They are also hands down the best Korean skincare brand, in my honest opinion. I will write extensive reviews on their skincare in the futures as well.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what you think.

Have a lovely week

Etude House Liquid Lips 2015 Review

Ladies and Jellybeans

I got a text message from Etude House saying that they’re launching a new liquid lipstick on the 29th of January. I know how much I love Etude House and how much I’ve been obsessing over my OCC Liptars lately, so I knew this was something I’d have to give a try. So I scoured the net for reviews but there is absolutely nothing so far. I decided to plunge in and get two so long and if I’d like them, I’d have to budget for more of the collection. There are 20 lipsticks in the collection so I’d have to save a bit.

The packaging at Etude House is always a win:

It looks like kiddies lipstick in a clear top, but it’s actually a liquid product that is contained within a lipstick shaped compartment. It’s adorable really!

Here is RD301.

This one straight up reminded me of OCC Liptar in Radiate. I will eventually do a dupe review of it.

I found that the purple one after a while wears more bright pink than purple, so I had to reapply to get the purple colour that I originally wanted. That’s not a big deal for me though.

OR 204. This one is translated to Orange In Spicy.

This is one that has been requested by a follower and I’m not sure it suits my fair skin, but I still like the colour and I think it’s fairly versatile.

This one reminds me Strumpet by OCC. I don’t have it in my possession but once I do I will write a comparison review for you on it.

I am very impressed so far as they aren’t drying, they apply easily. I initially thought that I wouldn’t like the flame shaped spoolie or applicator, because it looked really cheap in the pictures, but it’s so much nicer than it looks and the shape of it is proved to be very helpful in drawing a lip line. I would suggest not being too liberal with this product since it’s very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I’d also suggest wearing a lip primer if you wouldn’t want your lips to be stained, since they can be staining if I look at the swatches on my hand. I can’t vouch for the longevity of the product as of yet, but I’ll keep you updated since I’ll be wearing this today.

Pros:
Not drying
Super pigmented
Many colours to choose from
Handy applicator
A little goes a long way

Cons:
Will stain lips
Can transfer onto garments when it hasn’t dried yet

Price tag: w9500

Would I buy it again? Yes, absolutely.

I hope this post was helpful or entertaining at least.

Have a lovely week
