Pros:
– Reasonably priced. Php 395 for an 8ml lip product.
– Locally available, you can get this at SM department stores.
– It comes in 22 colors based on their website
– We love Tokyo shade, nude pink is ❀️
– This shade can be worn daily
– Glides smoothly on the lips
– Non drying
– Moisturizes the lips

Cons:
– Doesnt last long
– Can accentuate dry lips

It does give moisture but it can accentuate dry areas. Be sure your lips are prepped before applying this. This is not a skincare product so dont depend on this to moisturize your lips. Overall, my sis loves this stuff. It looks natural on her skin. It’s a part of her daily office makeup. Im thinking of buying the darkest shade from this line. Have you tried this? What’s your favorite lippie right now?

  1. I love NYX matte lip creams. It’s a bit curious that this color didn’t last long on you. Mine dries up to a matte finish (as expected hehe) and lasts even after having meals. The consistency changed a bit during the summer, though, so it doesn’t dry as quickly and doesn’t stay on as long. The longevity is still better than most lipsticks I’ve tried, though.

    • I love their lip creams too. It’s just that this color is too light/nude. The dark ones (Copenhagen & Transylvania caught my attention before. I’ll probably get those next time. πŸ™‚

  2. Hello 😁 I also love nude lipstick ❀️ I know some online shop that sells lip balms/lipstick/lip stains. It lasts longer, though. Just tell me if you wanna know 😁
