I have been wanting a matte vampy red lipstick for the longest time ever and I finally bought one!
When I first saw this red Hello Kitty lipstick, I just knew I had to buy it!
It was compact in size, a beautiful red and had Hello Kitty embossed on the cap!
The beautiful packaging gave me high hopes for this lipstick, but alas...
*falls dramatically to the floor*
...the lipstick left me very very disappointed.
✽ Overall ✽
Overview: ♥ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
Very very cute packaging, but lipstick formula is sheer and doesn't glide on smoothly at all which requires a very generous amount of swiping to achieve the pigment level above.
Extremely disappointed with this lipstick.
Colour: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♡ ♡
A gorgeous vampy red when swatched and I love that it doesn't contain any micro shimmers!
Application: ♥ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
The lipstick was sheer and streaky which made it very hard to work with. I had to swipe the lipstick on my lips a huge number of times to get the colour intensity I wanted and had to use a lip brush to even out the colour.
Also, the colour appears orange-ish in my lips, as seen above.
Packaging: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The packaging's teeny tiny (about 5.5cm) and I love it! The bullet fits snugly in the case and cause of it's compact size, it's pretty obvious that it doesn't have a ridiculous amount of 'wasted space' like many other lipsticks in the market.
And let's not forget the cute Hello Kitty bling on the cap!
❝ Pros ❞
Cute compact packaging!
❝ Cons ❞
Sheer lipstick formula, streaky application. Sigh.
Would definitely not purchase again!
