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 high 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.
Eren Mckaye cosmetics is a new local brand in the philippines that cater paraben free and cruelty free makeup imported from USA. One from the collection is the Eren Mckaye Lip Creme
Net Wt: 5ml
It comes in 4 opaque shades.
- Coral – bright pink with a soft peach undertone good for light/fair skin
- Ruby – deep plump red perfect for on the go whenever you’re lazy to put on makeup
- Nude – soft pinki-ish nude (too pale for morena like me)
- Red in Rome – a classic red brown perfect for all skin tone
These shades are really pigmented, it applies smoothly on the lips however some of the shades particularly coral and nude are a bit streaky to use. Make sure to let it set before adding another layer. The formula of the dark shades (Ruby and Red in Rome) is thick and really opaque while the light shades are a bit thin. In terms of longevity, these matte lip crème stays all day given that you eat heavy meal and yet it fades only on the inner lips and has a minimal transfer. It feels really lightweight on the lips and non tacky, it dries into matte but not flat. It’s a bit sticky during application but sets after few seconds or depending on the amount of product you apply. As for the scent, it doesn’t smell any unusual.
Another big factor of this product is that it is cruelty free, lead and paraben free.
Note: For those who are not comfortable wearing a matte lipstick I highly recommend you to use lip balm or a lip primer underneath. Since I have high tolerance with matte lipstick, I don’t have to use any of it.
