The packaging is just so sleek! It feels so luxurious to have this. The matte black finish is speaking to me on so many levels.
On the lips, it looks reaaally flat and matte. This is a matte one, so I am glad that it’s doing its job by being so flat out matte. Not a single shimmer or glimmer in all of the lip and skin swatches I took.
On me, it looks like the perfect MLBB shade. The texture and the color come together to make this lipstick effortlessly like an extension of me. I now feel like I apply this not because I need its color per se, but because I need it to look human. I look sickly and pale when I don’t have makeup on, and many days I can get away with just using this lipstick and magically going from ghostly to blooming in seconds.
I am just so thankful that they have these lipsticks at Sasa in Hong Kong so I was finally able to swatch and see almost all of them in real life! I love allll the shades, though my next purchase will probably be Electric Pink..
I have here some swatches which I’ll briefly describe:
S113 Pink Bebe: A very milky pastel pink. This has barely any mauve or nudy undertones, like this is literally a blush or cherry blossom pink. This looks nice on photos, but may have this novelty feel to it once on the lips because it literally looks like strawberry milk.
S114 Electric Pink: A beautiful and vivid hot pink. The website describes it as a vivid magenta pink.
S115 Rose On Lip: A more muted and tame version of S114. A lovely bright coral pink. I bought this because I love how much life it gives to my ghostly complexion. The site describes it as a rosy coral pink. I love coral pinks so much, and this happens to be one particularly good take on the shade family.
S116 Purple Blush: An orchid pink to me. The website describes it as a hippy purple pink.
S210 Peach and Cream: A clay toned shade with a touch of pink. Or literally, it’s a milky peach shade. The website calls it peach coral.
S711 Purple Splash: Bright bluish Fuchsia
S712 Golden Mist: A translucent gold topping to be used on top of the others to create a metallic look. Can of course be used alone, and can also be used as highlighter and eyeshadow/eyeshadow primer.
S811 Barely Nude: A peachy nude. The website says it’s a salmon peach nude, although I’m not really finding it to be orange or vivid enough to be described as salmon…
M113 Vintage Wine: I feel that it’s literally a plummy, wine-ey red.
M810 Faint Brick: An unapologetically beautiful clay shade. The website describes it as a soft brown orange.
S111 Accent: A fiery chilli red.
S112 The Red: A bright and cheery modern cherry red. This is the right balance for everyday as it’s not too wild like the other reds in this collection.
