Koshize Satinlips Lipsticks

Say hello to mini lipsticks! Aren’t they so cute? I've never really seen stuff like these before so I was surprised how little they were :P

I’m a fan of Sophie Parislipsticks but I never tried their Koshize line. They have a whole line of powders, foundations, blushes that looked like Milani Cosmetic baked blushes, and of course, lipsticks. I haven't tried them out yet and I never wanted to try them until Rae gave me some Koshize lipsticks and then yeah, I've been hooked and wanted to try out the whole lot.

Fortunately when I browsed through the category, they had minis. They don’t have samples that you can swatch on the store so I was lucky that they had minis available meaning I can just buy the minis so that I didn’t have to rely on the catalogue and just guess on what shade suits me and buy the normal sized lipstick. I think the normal size lipstick is worth PHP 240 and the set of 8 mini lipsticks is also PHP 240. So I’m getting a bang for my buck when I can have 8 colors instead of 1 shade right?




Review
Satin-matte. Not Wet N Wild Megalastlipstick matte but just matte. When you apply it, you don’t have to wait for it to set. It claims to be satin-like and yup, I can definitely feel that when applying it. Not much tugging needed. It just applies smoothly and it gives off full color even on first swipe.

It looks and feels great when you have exfoliated lips. BUT when you don’t, prepare to see dry patches of color on your lips. Sometimes I find that lip balm can't even help with the dry patches. So I have to put lip balm first, wait a few minutes, apply Koshize Satinlips and then apply lip balm again a few hours when I see my lips chapping up. Claiming to have moisture, uhm, not so much. I can find it a bit drying sometimes.

It’s kinda weird. Sometimes it looks so great and moisturizing and sometimes it seems drying. Can it be that hydration is a factor in this? lol. Not sure though. But I'm pretty sure it would just be me coz I am a cactus. I can last the whole day with 2 glasses of water.

Lighter colors, wear time can be 3 hours with eating and drinking. The darker colors tend to last more and tend to fade while staining your lips. Color pay off is great whether it’s the lighter or darker colors. It doesn’t oxidize on lips. Color just stays true when first applied. Really mild smell. I like it. As for the real lipstick tube, great packaging. It has a close feel, a little heavy than other lipsticks and really durable.

I have the full size shades of I think 1 and 3? Love those two for a natural looking lip and the shade 2 for a nude lip. Too bad the last shade broke so I can't apply it with the mini tube. But since I'm done taking pictures, now I can depot it or de-tube it lol.

Matte lipstick lovers out there, try this one out. Very practical and wearable colors. I think you’ll love the formula :)
