Salam 'alaikum darlings,
Before reading this review, do not expect that you'll get a pro-class review kinda like, because seriously... I was a real amateur when it comes to cosmetics review. I'm not a make-up junkie though I love putting make-up on my face. This is suppose to be an informal review that's strongly based on personal likes and dislikes - ness. So here we go!
What I'm gonna review now is this lipstick I just bought from Maybelline. I've been searching for matte lipstick, bloody red one. Just because I wanna try it. I have lots of palette lipstick I just got so bored with them. So my colleague at work who's also a make-up artist - Monica - recommended me a matte lipstick from Revlon. I was about to hunt that thing till 3 days ago when I went lunch to Plaza Festival near my office.
There, there was a big sale of Matahari *as usual* but Revlon didn't open any counter. I just found Maybelline, Silkygirl and Wardah. Because I already have lots of Wardah lipsticks so I took a look at Maybelline counter and stumbled by this lipstick.
Price = 7,5
Affordable, it costs for IDR 70k only.
Packaging = 8
I honestly love the packaging because it represents the color the best. And one of my fave color as well >> Red as blood.
Color = 8
I chose the matte lipstick no. 625. I almost chose the 635 but the color is deeper and darker, not like what I was searching; a bloody red color. So this was my choice
Endurance = 7,5
I applied the lipstick on at 8 am and until 1 pm - precisely after I had lunch - the color of the lipstick was still precisely the same unless of course the inside part of the lips. It's a bit faded but not too much.
Effect on the lips = 8
I have a dry easy-to-chapped lips. I must apply a medicated lip-balm before applying a lipstick. But with this lipstick, I don't have to use any lip balm if I'm in hurry. I can just use it and my lips will be saved from getting chapped for almost 8 hours. For me, it's an awesomeness.
That's all I guess. All choice is yours. But if you're a matte-lipstick lover, this product is highly recommended ;)
