Review: Pinkies Collection Lipstick In Champagne Bubble

Hello Pinay Beauties! As promised, I am back with another lipstick review. This lippie came from a fairly new brand in the market, Pinkies Collection. I was actually looking for an everyday lipstick and this color is super perfect, so I decided to get one.

Let's talk about packaging. Doesn't it remind you of a MAC lipstick? I love the matte black and sleek packaging of this lipstick. I also like the simple pink logo imprinted on it. As for sturdiness of the packaging, it was a let down. See, I have this thing about dropping things, and this lipstick is no exception. I am not sure how it happened, but I remember dropping my makeup bag a few days after I bought this lipstick. Although the lipstick bullet is very much intact, the tube has a crack on it which I solved my wrapping tape around it.

Anyhow, here's the list of ingredients:

The shade that I got is this beautiful pinkish nude shade LP-02 Champagne Bubble. Here's a swatch:

And here's a swatch on my lips:

I love the color of this lipstick. It is one of the my-lips-but-better shades, just a bit pinker. The lipstick glides smoothly, but I still need to smooth it out with my ring finger to even it out. This is definitely not matte, more on the cream sheen side. It transfers a lot, and you may need to reapply and reapply. It is very moisturizing, but not moisturizing enough to not use a lipbalm before application.

What I like about this product:
  • Very affordable for roughly ₱150.
  • The shade is perfect for everyday use.
  • Glides on smoothly.
  • Very moisturizing (it contains Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter)
  • Mild scent, not overpowering.
What I didn't like about this product:
  • Cheap packaging.
  • Transfers a lot.
  • Need to reapply lots of times during the course of the day.
Will I repurchase? Probably not. I was just curious about this lipstick so I got it, but I think there are other local lipsticks with the same price that works better than this (for example, Fashion 21 Pink Obsession Lipstick, etc.)

And that's it for this post. Let me know if you have any questions, or if you have any products that you would like me to review. Thank you so much for reading, and I will see you on my next post. Goodluck!
