Hope you liked my post on the previous shade from The Balm Cosmetics Meet Matte Hughes Liquid Lipsticks. Now is the time to share the review of the second shade. I am really glad that you are all liking this series of reviews otherwise I had serious doubts to continue reviewing these Chinese products. You know how we all feel about the Chinese stuff .
You can buy it from here
Anyway let’s focus on this review for the time being. Few girls asked me about the balm, specially around its price being so low on Shopclues. Well, let me answer this. It is simply because these balms are not authentic balms to be precise but these are good quality dupes.
On using the balms, you actually feel a little drying effect on your lips. You might want to check about its suitability on your lips first before you use these specially if you have dry lips. These start fading a little early from the center but if you use a lip balm underneath it then this can be taken care of. These are highly intense and quite pigmented otherwise, which shows up really well on your lips.
- Packaging as I have already mentioned in a separate post earlier, is quite simple and elegant. The see-through tubes make your life easier with the shades being easy to identify. The sponge applicator would be your easiest mate to apply your color for the day easily. The packaging is definitely travel friendly too as the tube turns off tightly making it spill-free.
When I first swatched this shade, I was not at all sure about it but when I tried it finally, it came out really nice. The velvety soft finish of the color gave a perfect matte look to my lips and it showed off beautifully. The pictures would surely give you an idea. The longevity also impressed me as it did not lose its color even when I ate my meal and throughout the day, I was beaming for the same reason that the lip color added to my face. Somehow most of the shades are going well with my skin tone except one or two.
This shade Honest is a blend of orange with a peach base. It is definitely a good choice for people with fairer skin tones. Dusky skin toned people can also use it on and off with suitable time selections. It is a perfect day time wear but if you wear it during evenings and nights, it is not bad to suit your mood either.
To remove this color, as I already mentioned in previous reviews for the brand, always use an oil based remover as it otherwise sticks to your lips which definitely can harm your lips. We should use it as a necessary precaution as sure cannot trust the Chinese stuff this easily.
A nice color, nice long stay product available at a nice price, this lip color can sure add value to your vanity and lips. I would say this color is definitely a good choice and for those who love to experiment with their brand choices, do try this color. Do share your worthy reviews and comments. They are definitely an encouragement for me.
