Location Bought: Etude House SM Megamall
Date Bought: December 20, 2009
Packaging: very simple tube with a doe-foot applicator. Definitely function over form.
Side Note: Contrary to what "TINT" may suggest, I believe this is a product meant for the lips ONLY. Nothing on the packaging says it's also suited for cheeks.
Color: a warm cherry red
Pigmentation: VERY VERY VERY VERY STRONG. Seriously. Look at it on my hand below.
It's still there even after I've tissued it off!
Actual Usage: dries to a lightweight, non-drying finish that makes you look like you've just eaten Lipps Candy. I love it!
It looks even more amazing under gloss! (Here I used TBS Merry Cranberry.)
And just like my hand, it stays even after I've tissued it off!
The Ultimate Test: since this product's lasting power seems to be really strong, I tested to see if it would last all throughout Christmas Eve and Noche Buena. Here it is before going to Christmas Eve mass.
(NOTE: pictures from this point on were taken using a cellphone)
And here it is before Noche Buena.
After Noche Buena (with A LOT of eating and drinking and mouth wiping, mind you), it faded slightly, but still looks practically the same!
Unbelievable lasting power, definitely HG material.
