Location Bought: Watsons Greenhills
Approximate Date Bought: late 2010
Packaging: Classy when closed is classy enough, but not so much once opened.
It's ergonomically designed - you know how I like my lipstick tubes with decent weight so they're easier to hold - but the lipstick doesn't fully screw down. Some of it doesn't go all the way in,
which leads to nasty nicks on the lipstick and smears on the rim of the tube.
Still, this is ELF we're talking about: cheapo-but-quality makeup, so we can't really fault them for this if it means prices will be brought down.
Color and Pigmentation: Classy is a semi-matte, decently pigmented medium pink that works well on my skintone unlike Etude's PK007. No ganguro here, just a nicely matched shade.
Formulation: The lipstick smells like Panda brand ball pens, which reminds me of this super corny joke,
Anong dream ng Panda? (What does a Panda dream about?)
Edi maging pilot! (To be a Pilot, duh!)
>> the Pilot in question being the Pilot ball pen brand. Anyway, I fail. Moving on. :P
Classy is drying and feels thick on my lips. That's okay though, because I never plan to wear it without a layer of protective lip balm anyway, considering the dodgy smell. I don't really mind the Panda ballpen smell; it actually brings back memories of early school, but a lip product that smells like a pen bothers me slightly.
If Classy's shade of pink didn't work so nicely on me, I would have added it to my list of fail. This will have to do for now, but the search for a decent medium pink continues!
