The weather's pretty gloomy these past few weeks. I have a feeling another typhoon is coming :3 So today I decided to do a review of one of my lip products, the Sophie Lipstick in Ice Pink. Ive had this item for a year or two I guess, so now I can properly give it a review :)
The packaging is very cute and simple. Its a black tube with floral prints and the company logo printed in pink! Yay.
I really loved the floral designs on the tube. Pink and black is really a very good color combination on beauty products because I feel like they entice more people to buy them because of cuteness overload.
I bought this lipstick at a very affordable price, more or less $2. I think there are 3 or 4 more shades in this line, and I got this shade which is called Ice Pink and another one called Cotton Peach.
Also printed on the tube is the expiry date of the product which is on 2015. I think its also important that expiry dates be printed on any beauty products because we would know when to throw away products that are no longer suitable for use. I always check for labels and ingredients of products I use too.
The color name really suits this lipstick because its a pretty Ice Pink in shade. I think this color became a trend in the last 2 years? I remember seeing this lipstick color being worn all over beauty bloglandia and I was dying to try it also. Perhaps that was one of the reasons why I got this haha. Here are some photos of the lipstick.
This lipstick has a matte finish, so if you wanted something that is not sticky like lipglosses, then you should give this a try. But the downside of it is that I find it a little hard to apply because of its consistency. So it would help if you apply lip balm on your lips first for the lipstick to glide on smoothly.
But the good thing is that this lipstick surprisingly lasts longer. I guess we all have to thank its matte consistency as being the reason why it does not come of easily, even when I was eating and drinking.
And now here is a photo comparison of the lipstick when worn. Its really a vibrant pink, but when light shines on it (like camera flash) it somewhat turns into a purplish pink. Or something purple-ish. Still, its a pretty color I must say.

And lastly, here is a #shamelessselfie, as what its called on instagram. Hehe :P Overall, I dont think this color is a good match for me for daily use. Although I would use it for parties or night out or special occasion, just not for daily use because I find it too flashy for my liking.
+ avalable locally
+ matte finish
+ lasts longer
+ nice color
+ nice packaging
- a little difficult to apply
And thats it! Hopefully I will be posting a review of the other Sophie Lipstick that I own next. I now have time to blog and take photos so I hope I can keep up with daily posting. I kinda went MIA for a year and I want to be back on track with posting. Happy reading! :)
