Came across this lipstick from @cherrybloomscosmetics from one of my hauls that promise to be long wearing, volumising, and matte but non-drying in a pretty pinkish nude shade called #NudeJen. I’m excited to test it and so I did as soon as I got home (sorry for the yellowish lighting, I tried my best) 😬
THE APPLICATION: I applied it 3 times as the box says. The only drawback is that it doesn’t really dry in 10 seconds as the box says when I applied it on my lips, it’s hard to tell if it’s already dry, pressing your lips while it’s still wet is going to peel off the lipstick because it’s super tacky (the box did warn not to press your lips together when applying coats). It happened to me 2 times accidentally and I had to repaint on the areas that peeled off. And since I have to let it dry I have to do a big O with my lips so you’ll have to look like this for a bit 😮. After it dries out it will still be tacky but won’t peel off anymore, so I had to set it with powder so my lips don’t stick together and that makes it really matte. If you like it with a bit of shimmer, you can put gloss on top.
THE LONG WEARING TEST: So to test, I ate a juicy hamburger. After I’m done I noticed the inner parts has cracked and some minor peeling but the lipstick is still mostly intact, I’m amazed! But because the setting powder is gone, it was back to being tacky. I just noticed that pressing your lips together this time helps to fill the cracks coz the lipstick starts to move around coz it got wet from eating which is good but you just need to set it again to remove the sticky feeling.
OVERALL VERDICT: It’s a bit of work to wear but it’s the same as most long wearing lipstick I’m just not used to it, but definitely wearable and I would definitely use it. I am also really in love with this shade. And the best part is - the company donates 80c per dollar to SOS Children’s Villages! It’s a company with a heart. #cherryblooms #kisspovertygoodbye
