Hey lippie lovers!
A quick review on Kiss Me's Heavy Rotation Milky Color Lips in 04.
A while ago, a best friend of mine gave me this lipstick cause it didn't work on her dark skin at all. Since I have fairer skin, I gave it a go!
I used to be all about the nude lips, white pale and oh so glossy, complete with concealer and the works. Fast forward to the present, I've become a lazy lip balm girl or on good days, I'll pick the brightest lipstick I could find. XD
This lipstick looks and feel very milky on my lips, emphasising it's name - Milky Color Lips!
This Milky Color Lips comes in a beautiful sturdy packaging and feels luxuriously heavy, if you know what I mean. I love the gold and black packaging and it makes a lovely 'click' sound when I close the cap. *click*
The formula is thick, almost heavy feeling on the lips, matte with a subtle sheen and very pigmented. The matte formula seems to emphasise the dry cracks on my lips, hence it can look pretty bad when applied on dry lips. Nothing that lip balm and a lip scrub can't handle!
Scent wise, I pick up a rather strong vanilla-isque scent, kinda like creme brulee!
I find that the lipstick doesn't go on very nicely when swiped on, instead dabbing on the lipstick gives a better and more even coverage. My lips are currently pretty bruised and cracked from the winter cold and this lipstick managed to completely cover the redness in a single swipe.
The picture below shows a single swipe on the right, and packed on on the left. Not a very big difference I would say, thanks to the high pigmentation.

❝ Pros ❞
Very pigmented lipstick.
Nice heavy luxurious packaging.
Nice nude shade, works as alone or as a lip concealer.
Vanilla/Creme Brulee scent, could be a pro or con for you.
❝ Cons ❞
Emphasises fine lines on lips.
Formula can feel heavy on lips.
Can go on rather patchy.
A nice nude lip colour, very suitable for Asian skin tone. It's beautifully pigmented, giving you perfect coverage with one swipe, but it can go on patchy. I do suggest patting on the lipstick to even out the colour. The luxurious heavy packaging is a huge plus as well! However, if you're not comfortable with nude lips, skip this. It's been a while since I had nude lips on and I was veryyy uncomfortable looking at myself with the lipstick on.
