I think a lot of you knows that. I like how quick & easy it gives you that made-up look without going to the trouble of doing your eye make-up.
When i spotted this on the department store i just said to myself that i ought to try matte lipsticks again. I used to have Ever Bilena in Skin but i gave it to my grandma. Since it's very affordable i decided to get 2.
Matte Pink & Matte Red...
What can say?
They're matte... They are drying so you would need to make sure that you hydrate your lips before you go to sleep (if you plan to use this the next morning-especially if you have the type of lips that chaps like crazy!) & also use a moisturizing lip balm underneath.
The swatch of course...
Then on the right side of the pic, i applied a gloss over it so you'll see how gorgeous it looks with gloss on. I used MAC Dazzleglass Rags to Riches.
I'm not really into matte pinks because i notice that me using a light colored lipstick in matte formula just makes the chapping of my lips too obvious it looks like a real disaster so i don't really reach for this lipstick as often as i do for the Love That Red shade.
The Love That Red would leave you with a great reddish even tint so even if it's gone it won't too that. Hey, i tried wearing some red lipsticks before without any retouch & it just doesn't look that nice for the edges of your lip would still have color but not the real lip. I look horrendous!
I would like to be able to post a whole face pic but i notice that lately my face has this redness on it & i don't have a green primer at hand to cover it up so i'm sorry ladies.
I'll just use these in my next eyelook posts then i'll link it up.
For only Php 99 ($2) a pop, you get a decent matte lipstick with a pretty nice pigmentation. I know that they have a couple of neutral shades but for some reason some color just doesn't compliment me. I think these 2 are the only ones that called my name.
- locally available
- great pigmentation
- locally made so designed specifically for filipinas!
- can make your lips dry (make sure you apply a lip balm underneath)
- might not be available internationally
Will i buy again?
If there would be a nice shade that would compliment me, why not?!
Have you ever tried Ever Bilena lipsticks?
How about matte lipsticks?
Enjoy the day,sweeties!
