MeNow Kissproof Lipsticks are now here in the Philippines! Yay!
These lipsticks have caught many of the makeup enthusiasts attention because of its affordability and kiss-proof matte finish. These, so far, are one of the most long-lasting lipsticks that I have ever tried, I had a meal and blotted it off with a tissue and they didn't budge easily! I purchased #2, #13,#14, and #15.
Price: Php 70 each
(Price varies: others are selling this for not more than Php150)
Wish I ordered more colors though 'cause I ended up buying pinkish, reddish and pink-nude shades only. We have a friend who bought these lippies wholesale straight from abroad so I was able to get it for a cheap price! So far, I haven't heard of fake/replica version of this (perhaps since it is so cheap already, why bother producing fakes? LOL!) Here, the price would depend on whoever is the seller so I can't assure people that they can get the product the same price I got mine.
Moving on, here's the swatch I made using the colors I have:
Menow Pro KISS PROOF Powdery Matte Soft Lipsticks
Review and Swatch
It comes in a pencil/crayon type shape encased in a plastic packaging that should be sharpened. The only thing that I hate about sharpening eyeliners and pencil lipsticks is that some product are removed along during sharpening. Such a waste of product lang!
There were many colors to choose from yet I chose 4 colors in 002, 013, 014, and 015. 002 and 014 are very similar, the latter is just deeper whilst the former is brighter. 015 is a pretty pinkish-nude with greige (grey-beige) tone and 013 is a true classic red.
The formulation gives a velvet matte finish that is hard to remove once it settles on the lips. It still smudges though around the inner lips when you eat or drink but nonetheless there will still be colors left.
As for being kiss-proof, a smack won't ruin your lippie BUT please don't try some get-a-room kissing session especially if you're wearing bright pink and red shades if you know what I mean, ladies! Haha! Just be careful though from applying too much since too much rubbing can make the formula crumble like caking powder (the usual problems similar to many dry matte liquid lipsticks)
- cheap price, very affordable
- powdery matte finish that most people like
- travel-friendly packaging
-have lots of colors to choose from
- still has to sharpen the product
- not easily available anywhere, has to be bought online
- the product has the tendency to crumble when applied thickly and when pursing the lips together
