Review : Rucy's Vanity Gleamy Lipstick12:00:00 AM
Hello everyone! After my little depressing self-loathing post prior to this I decided what I was feeling was normal and if dwelled too much upon, is detrimental to my mental and emotional well-being so I stopped and looked at the bright side of 2015 — Lots of opportunities for my blog. Apart from that I wrote much frequently this year compared to last year and the year before that. There's always a shining moment, you just have to look past what you didn't get/have and look at what you did receive.
Speaking of opportunities for my blog, affordable Korean brand [based in the Philippines] Rucy's Vanity, kindly sent me a few things to check out. One of which is their Gleamy Lipstick in Qute Pink.
Cute with a Q.
Rucy’s Vanity is a 100% Korean skincare and cosmetics brand [made in Korea] offering high quality products in a reasonable price.
PACKAGING & SCENT
The tube is very sturdy, surprisingly. The box also contains both Korean and English words, so no worries about the ingredients. It has a light scent of crayons or wax but nothing overpowering.
TEXTURE & COLOUR
Emollient and slippery but I wouldn't say it's moisturizing. Because of the texture it's smooth and non-draggy. It gives off a nice shine but emphasizes crusty lips. So exfoliate and/or hydrate prior to wearing. Even if it's emollient and smooth it definitely can't take the place of a lip balm.
As you can probably tell it's quite sheer. Almost like a tinted lip balm if you only swipe it once or twice but it is buildable. The shade itself [initially] is a blue-purple undertone-d creamy baby pink. On my particular skin [yellow-olive medium] it's a little hard to pull-off partly because I'm not fond of cool-toned pinks and it makes teeth look more yellow. BUT after a while the lipstick changes colour. I don't know if it's just on me, but it turned just a few shades darker so it was little more wearable for me after that.
