Review: The Face Shop Color-Full Lip Palette 01


Last post, then I'm coming home from China! Did I mention I have been in China for the past four days? Yup! I'm coming home today! Yay!

Anyways, I thought I'd do a review on this product. I got it as a present on my 18th birthday I think. So, I've had it for over a year and then some! It that gross?

Anyways, again with the informal review format. LOL
The packaging looks like this. I love the colors. It's so pretty and girly too. Then (below) you can see how it looks like inside. Stupid me forgot to take the picture of the mirror. It comes attached with one. And you see that little space down there below the products? It comes with a brush that is not so good a quality.

This one is Matte Deep Rose and I love love love the color. I think this is my My-Lips-But-Better color, if I do say so myself. It's easy to apply and the pigmentation is awesome.

The Glossy Shine Pink on the other hand, I hate. The color in the pot is nice but it streaks when applied and it settles in the crevices of the lips when not applied properly.

Same goes with the Glossy Shine Peach. It's really hard to work with. Although the color could have been nice if the formulation was a bit better.

Lastly, I love the Matte Violet Rose. It goes on nicely and it's easy to apply. I don't know about the staying power of each though. To me, it seems that it's nothing out of the ordinary.

Overall, I like the Matte ones but I don't like the Glossy ones. By the way, the matte ones aren't really matte. They have pretty much the same finish as the Glossy ones only the formulation differs.

I don't think this is something that you should go out and hunt for. For me, though, I like it and I bring it everywhere because of the Matte Deep Rose color but other than that, I wouldn't really recommend this product 'cause only 50% of it has great quality.

You can purchase this at The Face Shop stores all around.

Hope you like!

It's so weird that the matte ones are glossy. Hihi

Wow. You're in China.:) Do these lipglosses last long in the lips? I am kind of very particular with that kind of thing.:)

@Aya: I know right? It doesn't really make any sense. LOL

@Wella: They last longer than regular lip glosses but nothing extraordinary. :)

@thegreenhairclip: Actually, I'm not home yet, our flight got delayed. :(
