When I was hauling last Christmas season, this was a lipstick I was kind of unsure if I should keep it or not. I have put this lipstick up for sale and never really gave it a chance. Though I really thought it was pretty, I thought it didn't work for me because of its blue tones. It was only when someone asked about this lipstick that I realized how pretty this really is. And when she haggled to buy it for only Php350 inclusive of shipping, I immediately said no mainly because I got it for Php1250 and I've had it for only a month plus I saw a lip swatch of it and thought it was really pretty. Haggling is okay, but you know, just at least be reasonable with it. I wanted so much to say, "Ineng, punta ka na lang sa Rustan's and try mo tumawad sa sales assistant dun, baka sakali pumayag." (Go to Rustan's and try haggling with the sales assistants there, they might agree to the price.)Meanie, I know, but I can't help it. :P So I gave it another swipe and decided to just keep it for myself. I found ways on how to make it work better for me and to somehow neutralize the blue tones in it. First, allow me to show you how pretty this is.
A very pretty pink shade with blue tones that is glossy without any shimmers in it. I also find it non-drying and creamy and applies smoothly. It goes on sheer so it is build-able. Once again, my beef with it is the scent. It is somewhat overpowering but not as bad as the scent of Guerlain Kiss Kiss. It goes away after a couple of minutes. Since it is sheer and glossy, I find it perfect to pair with dark or bright colored lipsticks to somewhat tone down the darkness or brightness. I also like using it as a gloss.
