Ap-Au Lipstick in #08

Posted by Rica Francia at 1:17 AM

This lipstick reminds me very much of my NYX Round Lipsticks..

Anyway, I got this lipstick for HKD 15 from Sasa Outlet in Yau Ma Tei. It is located in Nathan Road, just near one of the exits in Yau Ma Tei MTR Train Station.

Its color is a very light frosted blue-based pink with glitters. The color is so-so ok to my skin color. I look "tanned" with this lipstick, compared to the other pink lipsticks that I've used in the past. It makes me look darker, which I actually love.

In case you guys are still not aware, my skin color from the MAC skin color chart is NC30 - NC35, anything darker nor lighter than that, doesn't suit my skin color.

Since it is a blue-based colored lipstick, it doesn't suit me perfectly. It is wearable, but not my kind of a "Holy Grail" lipstick color.

About the lipstick's formula, like what I mentioned, its formula is similar to NYX's Round Lipsticks. Only that it's a little bit drier. I noticed that after a few reapplies, my lips are getting dry and chapped. I would definitely stick to NYX Round Lipsticks than this if I was given only two choices.

The staying power of this lipstick is a bit longer than Marion's Fashion Design Lipsticks. Approximately 1 - 1/2 hour to be precise.

I am not going to repurchase this lipstick anymore in any other color. Why? Well, I don't like the creaminess of this lipstick (just like NYX's). It's just like gliding oil into my lips...
