Do I recommend?

my addiction to lippies continues. naturally, i revert back to Korean brands LOL.  first it was Tony Moly’s Prestige Crystal Lipsticks with spf13 posted here and now i report on these.  Guess who has a black label line for lippies?! well not just nyx now…but the face shop! tadahhhhh! glorious glorious!  and just ONE SWIPE for these swatches, too!

i’m partial these days to reds, berry reds specially, and this is #10.  i love love this shade on me.  and it’s super creamy to apply and moisturizing too.  this doesn’t crack my lips and it feels like the revlon colorburst but way way more pigmentation.

the picture i posted on the face shop’s wall.  the packaging’s so so but what’s inside that blew me away.

clearly, camwhoring with this red LOL.

of course i had to buy another shade hahaha.  this time in #7.  a very wearable nudy pink.  this is a tad brighter than nyx’s black label in bling (ha! which i have, too, just waiting on cherry to arrive before i post on nyx’s black label)

and the pic i posted on the face shop’s wall.  kapal ko noh? 😛  frankly, i love this black label line from the face shop, they are very pigmented and very soothing to the lips, very very  similar and is awesome competition to revlon’s colorburst.  my only issue is that there are only 6 shades that arrived in the Philippines.  LOL and naturally, i’m gonna get the coral or pink one, i mean, naturally!?

AND OPCHORZ, what will my rounds be if i didn’t visit Etude House? AN INCOMPLETE RUN that’s what LOL.  recently they released a new line of lippies and they call it, LOOK AT MY LIPS.  i got a couple of shades.  shades that i do not think i have anyway.  one very dark, well looks are deceiving and i got myself a bubble gum barbie kinda pink.  hangkyut!  well, they’re not as pigmented as my the face shop or nyx soft matte lip creams or nyx matte lipsticks  or covergirl lip perfection lippies, but just one more swipe and you get:

see, at the bottom of the bullet packaging it says look at and on the stick itself it says my lips LOL.

the barbie bubble gum pink.  that at the time went matchy matchy with my blouse.


while this is the #7, not scary anymore LOL.  dang it’s almost sheer well with the flash on.

but in normal daylight, you get more color pay off.

Product Stability BOTH sticks wobble within the tube bullet  stable, aint movin’
Taste/Scent yummy berry no discernible taste or scent
Price PhP328 PhP355

yep cheaper than my beloved covergirl lip perfection lippies.  

i compare the face shop black label to revlon colorburst lipsticks while naturally with a name like that you’d think of nyx’s black label line.  the pigmentation comparison is the same, one swipe with either the nyx or the face shop black label and you get fantastic color pay off.

while etude house’s look at my lips albeit rather pretty and very princessy high schooly is eggzaklee that, for kids, the pigmentation the shade.

which of the brands will i buy more shades of? you got it, the face shop, for once as in for once i will repurchase something from the face shop, and for once THEY ARE COMPETING with a price like that.  it’s competitive with the nyx black label price, it’s competitive, as in 40 bucks cheaper than cover girl’s lip perfection! and of course it’s cheaper than revlon’s colorburst.

do i recommend? yes i recommend the face shop’s.  just add 27 compared to eh’s lippies, then you get a lip balm with super pigmentation.

what’s next on my lippie addiction?

Laneige snow crystal moisture lipstick

Lioele – awaiting arrival from kkochipida

and owright, i’ll post my colorburst lippie package i bought from duty free hahaha

like i mentioned in my most recent vid, i’m all about lips recently and i went nuts over lippies thanks to cover girl’s new line the lip perfection and the nyx matte lippies.  but i have pigmented lips and i oxidize the products i apply on my face, which now includes my lips.  i recently i also purchased and reviewed the etude house vip girl lipstick base.  i know put the lipstick base then the concealer. hehehe typo LOL can you see it?

Description 4.5g Natural looking concealment of lip blemishes hopds makeup for long lasting lip makeup expression.

so it’s like any stick concealer.  looks like a fair to light skin tone.

it’s really very creamy and not chunky at all. very easy to blend out and quite dimethiconey feeling, matte sorta but really smooth.

it almost covered my green vein.  so it has medium to buildable coverage.

corpse lips.  seeeee Jes? i don’t have smooth lips.  it’s all smoke and mirrors, well in this case, makeup (lip products) LOL.

here’s a pic of me wearing Nyx’s soft matte lip cream in Milan, a shade that’s better worn on top of the concealer to reveal its true color

and my cover girl lip perfection in fairy tale, another lip shade that in my opinion requires a lipstick base and concealer if you want the true color to show up on your lips instead of a dark orangey rust that fairy tale can be on my lips specially after oxidation.

why do i need both?

actually in my opinion i don’t i just prefer something to fill in those vertical lines.  so both serve that purpose and amplify each other’s effect.  but if you don’t have lines like i do.  if you don’t have deep lines like have you can choose one or the other, either the lipstick base or this concealer.  if you have pigmented lips, but not too many deep lines, then just go for the concealer. 


  • convenient creamy stick formula and packaging
  • serious coverage, can cover even dark veins
  • has not caused dryness or chapping
  • easy to blend out
  • no weird tastes
  • no weird scents
  • makes my lipsticks last, even the not so great lipsticks last longer on my lips with the concealer or base on
  • oxidation of the lip stick shade is decreased significantly
  • the true shade of the lipstick is brought out.
  • it’s PHP228 for 4.5g


  • only one shade but hmmm is that really a bad thing? we DO wanna bring out the color of your lipstick shade right?

Do i recommend this? yep i definitely do.  hahaha apart from putting my kikaytrekkie watermark i don’t have the photoshop skill to make my lips look smooth, so a filler this concealer and the lipstick base have become.  i also recommend this to women who smoke and have nicotine darkness on their lips that way any lipstick you apply won’t just appear dark on your lips.  i also recommend this to women or woMen who have birth marks or moles right on the lips.

Will i repurchase, most likely, yes.
