It took months before I decided to order
City color claims:
A hybrid between a lipstick and gloss, our Creamy Lip Stain is a new kind of lip product that applies smooth and creamy like a gloss and sets with a matte finish. This creamy lip stain gives your lips long lasting color while keeping lips moisturized. Available in 6 fun flirty shades.
I love how sleek and sturdy the packaging is. The color coded makes it easy to identify the lip color. Plus it is very handy and not bulky. The label consists of the brand, ingredients, expiration and amount of the product. Also, it is cruelty free.
Net Vol. 2.3ml
Good for 12months
To be honest I have a trauma using lip creams. Because when I purchased MUA Lip velvet lacquer in Kooky, it dries into super matte as in super drying on the lips.A waste of money plus I was not able to use up the product. It was really a horrible experience.
My only trusted brand is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams; it is very soft on the lips and has a semi matte finish without getting your lips dry and crack-y. They have the same formula which I was really happy about. I was hesitant to give it a try though, but finally I’m glad with my purchased. It only cost me P266.00 including the shipping fee from Beautymnl because of the 20% discount plus you get a 10% rebate when your a loyal customer “suki”. I really love ordering from them. They are very consistent with the “next day delivery” commitment. It doesn’t usually take 24 hours within the metro. This makes me more excited to get my order.
Scent: It smells like floral,not too strong and fades after application. I have city color be matte lipstick and they have the same scent.
Shades: It comes in 6 shades (photo from google)
And I got the shade in Flirtini the lightest among the colors.
It is some what pink-ish nude and looks natural on me.I’m also eyeing for Blackberry mojito (purple-ish tone) but its not wearable.Unlike the flirtini which is really good for everyday makeup. I even get a few compliments when I wore this at work.
I just hope they come up with more shades.
Applicator: I like that it comes with a doe-foot wand.It makes the application easy and controllable. Though quite messy but it don’t bother.
Thoughts about the product
