DISCLAIMER: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have hi tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips. Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
I’m so ecstatic because finally I get to try the new EB Advance Bitten Lips during the SM Lipstick Festival happened last July 29, 2016. This is not yet available on the market but it’ll be out real soon. If you’re familiar with the Blushing Cheeks, they have the same packaging except that it comes with a pink tube and white cover while the bitten lips with a white tube and pink cover vice versa. This is applicable for the lips with a different formulation and consistency.
Price: This retails for P90.00 only very affordable
Net Wt: with 12ml of product
Packaging: It comes with a box properly labeled, same as with the actual product where you can find at the back of the tube. It is made with a plastic packaging and screw type cover; I really love the color combination of this product really cute and feminine.
Fragrance: It has a mild sweet scent like cherry.
Formula & Finish: Glossy and quite sticky
Thoughts: Of course I bet everyone have tried using a lip balm or any lip treatment on the market. But as we all know, they also have different formulas. So Everbilena recently came out with this so called “Bitten lips” which works as a moisturizer though it is not yet fully launch but it will come out very soon in all Watsons nationwide. The formula is quite sticky and glossy, so I prefer applying a little amount on the middle part of my lips then I just spread it using the applicator or you can use a lip brush or finger. Since I love wearing matte lipstick all the time, I really need a weapon to keep my lips from drying after a long day. I use this prior applying my makeup because it sets for a few minutes leaving my lips well moisturize. Also, I love how it creates a natural pink tint seconds after application. It really helps to provide a smooth canvass when top with any of my matte lipstick; however it feels kind of heavy even when I wore the lightest formula that I own.
During night time I use it as part of my skin care routine, I only apply a little amount on my lips and whenever I wake up my lips really feel hydrated and recovers from discomfort. I noticed also that my lips isn’t drying as before, though this doesn’t have any difference with other lip moisturizer in the market but it feels really proud to have such a local brand who continue to create great products at a low cost.
Disclaimer: haven’t tried using any lip gloss from any local brand aside from this Everbilena, not sure also if other local brand has it.
