Do you remember the gorgeous Makiash package that I showed you some days ago?

After my post about the Satin Cream Eyeshadow, today I’m here to review you another gem: the Lip Color Pen in the shade 2 Cold Plum.

As you can see,

it is a cherry/plum colour with a cold undertone.

Quick Tip: Cold undertones make your teeth look whiter! 😉

I would classify this product as a non-staining pencil/lipstick. It is something in between a creamy lip pencil and a liquid lipstick.
Infact, the Lip Color pen feels really creamy and moisturizing on the lips. Its creamy texture does not dry out my lips at all and the great thing is that the color doesn’t go into my fine lines, thing that usually happens to me when I  wear creamy or liquid lipsticks.
Once applied, it has a really rich pigmentation , it doesn’t feel sticky and leaves a nice glossy effect. Don’t worry, it is a gorgeous soft glossy effect.

I wore it for almost five hours and I can tell you that the glossy effect does go a bit away after 2 hours (without drinking or eating), but the amazing thing is that your lips remain coloured and soft for other 2 to three hours before you have to re-apply it.

It is also buildable and it’s great, because you can get the most out of only one product.

  • If you dab it gently on the lips, its like a cherry/mauve colour, perfect for the daytime.
  • If you apply it lightly it’s a mauve shade, perfect for daytime too.
  • If you fully apply it, it a cherry plum, perfect for the daytime, if you are a bold lip wearer or for your evenings out!

I did the water test! It stays on like a dream!

Even though it’s longlasting on me, when you remove it, the lipstick does not stain your lips. And this is something that I saw in only 2 or 3 lipsticks before. It’s very rare, especially if the colour is this strong.

As you can see above, i removed the lipstick with a simple wipe and the product was completely removed.
Personal note on this brand:  The non-staining but longlasting aspect made me fully understand how this brand works in the model industry. I imagine that, during fashion show or a photoshoot , a make up artist needs products with an high performance, but that allow you to change looks without having to deal, in this case, with stained lips. Not that they can’t be covered, but they usually tend to dry out the lips and, in this situations, being quick is necessary. So, props to Makiash!

You can purchase it here and you can also find this in two other shades:

I was sent this product, but this is my 100% honest opinion.
