I thought I saw this for $2.80. End up it was $8.90. I wanted to cancel but I didn’t know until I saw the receipt. Oh well, at least it is retractable so that’s nice. And the color of in 01 Nude, which can be use for anything.
I was wrong.
This is so drying. It applies alright, but when I try to shade in all my lips, it is just so flaky. Even under a balm, it doesn’t help. I guess that’s why it is long wearing. The pencil kind of broke on me. So that’s like a dollar gone just like that by being broken. The worse is that it still allow my lipstick to bleed. What’s the point then?
The color is quite dark for a nude. It is alright for me as my lips are pigmented. It is made in Germany so that is nice. And the more I use it, the more it gets better. I guess the lead inside that’s not really expose to air is less drying. But it still doesn’t do its job. I am not gonna regret but next time I would not buy anymore.
I bought 2 more of these during their one for one sale. I pick up Pure, a nice natural color. I would say it is rather brown with a pink tone. These lipsticks are moisturising and has a creme finish. It doesn’t last long though. I do however think it is worth when you buy it at $6, as it still leave some colors after 3 hours. It sort of like tint your lips without staining it. So even without touch up, you do not have a plain looking lips.
The second one is Appealing. It is much more brighter and has a more orange tone in it. More coral, I would say. I am not so keen on this color, as it can look a bit caked on, if that make sense. So you really have to apply this lightly. I just like to tap this onto my lips instead of sliding it across.
Silkygirl is one of the cheapest brand of make up you can find in Singapore, a trusted one that is. Since after sale, the lipstick cost about $6, I decided to just grab it (after testing a bunch of colors). The tester when applied is smooth. It is really rich in moisture.
Naked as its name claim, it gives a nude, slightly brown, slightly orange-pink color on my lips. So the more layer you apply the darker it gets, thus no longer nude nor naked. It become another colored lipstick. It matches with the browns, tans and cream color clothes you wear. Since the jacket I bring out most of the time is cream, for any last minute in a hurry cant put so much make up on, I will use this lipstick.
Plus it covered up my crack lip, so I’m really impress.
I like this, but I am not in love with it. As I prefer the texture of lip butter.
So this is the color after two hours of used. As you can see, touch up is needed. But it still have a hint of color on my lips, so it wasn’t bad.
