Thoughts: This lip stain is local, long lasting and all the colors the brand has are flattering on Filipina skin tones. It’s quite easy to get this online and did I mention that it’s so cheap at just Php89! My favorite color from the brand is called Merlot and true to the wine’s color it’s named after. It has the right amount of purple and red in it and on my skin and lips, it looks very natural. VERY. The formula has never broken me out in the two months I’ve been using this and the other colors I have. Because of the extensive color range for a lip and cheek stain, I’m sure you’ll find a color that will catch your fancy this summer. I would also like to mention that, unlike other affordable lip stains, this is actually quite pleasant to use because it doesn’t dry out the lips, has no weird smell and no bitter taste. I love this and would like to recommend to all.
Notes: Use sparingly because it is super duper pigmented.
