Here’s a rare make-up review from me.
I received this red lipstick from my fellow contributor, Fen as a souvenir from Korea. I kinda forgotten all about it until one day, I decided to do something different about my make up on a date night with Mr H.
Its packaging is really cute and small, perfect to pop into a clutch or a purse for quick touch-ups.
The lipstick lives up to its name of being a “heart full” lipstick by being in a heart shape. It’s very gimmicky but it works for me! However, I get super paranoid when I apply the lipstick as I feel I might ruin the heart shape. It’s probably best to use a lip brush for this lipstick.
Fen got me this particular colour, which is supposed to be a pretty bright shade of red. Let’s compare the colour of this lipstick with two others in my make up pouch.
From top to bottom: L’oreal Caresse Lipstain Rose on and on, Holika Holika Heart Full and Maybelline Color Sensational
As you can probably see, it’s not as red as I thought it would be. However, its texture is smoother than my Maybelline and more moisturising. Kudos to that!
After 2 coats of the lipstick, I got a pretty pinkish-red tone and the colour is pretty even.
This red is good for those who are not daring enough to go full out and yet wanting to try something beyond the safe pink tone. But for those who are seeking an outstanding shade of red, you will be disappointed that 2-3 coats later, it will still be more pink than red.
The lip colour lasted about 2 hours before I needed to touch up, which means its staying power IMO is just alright. Nothing spectacular.
Overall, it was a good start to being slightly more experimental in my make-up choices.
P.S: For this look, I tried to modify the wingtip eyeliner to suit my sleepy eyelids but it doesn’t look that obvious.
