Is there really lots of love in these lipsticks? Keep scrolling! 🙂
I have featured this brand quite a few times in my Instagram and on my channel so I get questions like “Are you paid by the brand?”, “Do you really love their products or do you feature them because they send you products?” and many others.
First of all, I have said this one or twice that I always aim to feature Filipino brands or if not locally made, at least locally available. Second, Yes I received a few items from the brand but it was not technically sent to me. I picked up the items myself which I really didn’t mind because their office is just in Ortigas. Lastly, I have promised to myself that I will never risk my integrity and credibility for money. I feature the brand because they do have products that are worth sharing and they have amazing staff. The one who chatted with me was very friendly and accommodating. I’m a sucker for stellar service that’s why, I usually stick with the provider who gives better experience. That’s just my personal choice. I am not expecting everyone to agree.
Now, let’s talk about their lipsticks. To my knowledge, they technically have 2 different kinds of lipsticks – the regular which retails at P119 each and their newly released matte collection that are sold at P179 each. I do want to mention that their regular lipsticks collection includes 2 shades that are a bit shimmery, almost metallic.
Here are the shades of their regular lispticks:
- Sweet Disposition
- Social Butterfly
- I wanna be a Princess
- Think Pink
- Kiss Kiss
- Dance with the devil
- Paint the town
- Rock that Red
- Bronze Age
- Pitch Black
The 1st 5 shades fall under the Nudes and Pinks categories while the next 3 shades are members of the Red family. They have a bronze shade and of course, the black lipstick. completes the line up.
Since their matte collection is a new release, I checked out their stall at SM Makati and had a quick chat with their saleslady about the new products. I believe (I could be wrong) there are 8 shades in this collection. Those are:
- Pretty Young Thing
- Your disco needs you
- Coffee Bean
Let’s talk about 5 different shades I own from the brand (these are all personally purchased. Just throwing it out there).
I have already shared their packaging are pretty simple, very minimalist look. They are stored in a black plastic tube and protected by a transparent cap. Nothing extravagant but I am not mad about it especially for the price range.
The butt of the tube displays the lipstick #, the shade and the batch #. It also indicates that it is manufactures in China.
The tube will also tell you that you will get 3g worth of product in this tube. This photo of Bronze Age was taken right after I peeled off the plastic that was covering it. That’s how much you’ll get for P119 which is honestly not bad at all. I’d say it is the standard size of a lipstick and again, for its price, that is a good deal.
Here are the swatches of the 5 shades I currently own. Created those swatches using just 1 swipe per shade. You can tell that there are a lot of pigmentation except Bronze Age. If the brand’s goal is a shimmery balm or something similar then I would understand but since it is included in the lipsticks collection, I expected a little bit more pigmentation. It is buildable so you can try swiping a few layers and see if you can achieve the bronzy lips that you are after for.
Formula wise, I enjoy how Kiss Kiss and Paint the town feels on my lips. I featured Kiss Kiss in one of my YT videos so checked that out if you haven’t already.
I included Naked in my last @Lolcosmeticsph haul and didn’t really go crazy over it. It looks brighter on the lips than in the tube so I wasn’t obsessed with it. Aristocrat on the other hand is a different story. This one is my fave by far – formula wise, shade and longevity.
It glides smoothly on the lips and it wasn’t a struggle to even out the color unlike Naked which looks really patchy on my lips (and even in the photo above). Aristocrat is a really pretty purple lipstick. Don’t put too much though because it can be drying. But, if you are into the purple/plum lips trend or thinking about trying a new look, this is something I would truly recommend.
Quite frankly, LOL Cosmetics products still have some hits and misses (for me). I love their bronzers and blushes but I don’t grab their matte eyeshadow often because I think it needs more pigmentation. Their lipstick collection is a similar story. There are shades that I will have to say pass but there are shades I would grab and wear on a daily basis.
