I first wanted to try this lipstick when I saw Pony (Korean makeup artist) use it in her makeup tutorial. It's the Bbia Last Lipstick Velvet Matte Red Series 1 in Intelligent (#4). Now that I have bought it, I thought I'd share my review with you guys!
♥ Colour is buildable
♥ Not drying at all
♥ Doesn't go into the lip creases
♥ Glides on smoothly
♥ Not really long-lasting
♥ Have to re-apply after eating/drinking
What I thought
Honestly I really love this lipstick. It is matte which is not that common in Korea but it isn't just any matte, it's a good quality matte! As my lips are more on the dry side naturally, a lot of matte lipsticks especially liquid ones tend to go into my lip cracks making my lips look like dried prunes which isn't attractive.
I love how this isn't drying AT ALL and it feels so comfortable on my lips. I think the reason for this is that it isn't 100% matte, more like 70% matte making the formula glide on a lot smoother because there is some form of moisture in the lipstick.
This lipstick is affordable and it has a light perfume type of scent but it isn't unpleasant so I don't really mind. I love how this is buildable so if you apply it lightly, it looks more natural but you can also build it up to full pigmentation.
The colour is like a light dusty rose pink and it's really flattering and wearable in my opinion. The description says it's long-wearing but out of all my matte lipsticks, this lasts the shortest so you definitely have to re-apply throughout the day and ESPECIALLY after you eat and drink food. Definitely one of my favourite lipsticks and highly recommended!
