Two layers

Horrible swatch? Yup, I know. I was literally chasing after the sun as I wanted to take a picture of these three shades the moment I got home from work. I'll surely replace this swatch with a better one and I'll also be updating this post with a full review. I've had this beauty set for less than 24-hours and I just really wanted to share with you the shades of this City Romance Beauty Set. I'll give my first impressions today, and I'll be wearing these shades throughout the week. 

First Impressions
The packaging is slaying. It's totally different from the High Heels Beauty Set. It's like this chromatic reflecting box with buildings and city lights on it and it just looks so festive. It can really bring out the Manila-chic in you. Just like the High Heels Beauty Set, you can actually just buy a ribbon, stick it to the box, and give it to your favorite loved one. It's really an amazing gift and also an affordable one because it's priced at PHP 399 for three matte liquid lipsticks.

It has the same powdery scent as the Ever Bilena Matte Liquid Lipsticks and also the same doe foot applicator. These City Romance lipsticks are just a little bigger in width compared to the OG ones and as per comparison of the shades, I noticed that C-01 looks very similar to the shade Rouge Berry except that C-01 is more pigmented and thicker in texture. These City Romance liquid lipsticks also dry faster and are less runny compared to the original Ever Bilena mattes. Shades C-02 looks like a warm taupe and C-03 looks like a red-violet color with a hint of pink. C-02 and C-03 are unique shades within the original line.

Even though these lipsticks are thicker and more pigmented, you need about two to three layers of it before you can achieve the full color on your lips. I don't think these shades are comparable to the EB Advance LTD liquid lipsticks as those lippies are truly "pandigmaan." I won't give my verdict about longevity yet and how it fairs when eating, but what I can say for now is that it feels light on my lips. 

I love how the High Heels Beauty Set is a complete contrast with this City Romance set. I love how there's a theme of like MLBB/nude shades versus the bolder vivid shades. I think these both are great sets, and I'm excited to test out their longevity!

Will be back soon! :)

Oh, and hey, I've got the Ever Bilena High Heels Beauty Set right here if you want to see MLBB shades!


  1. I like the High Heels Beauty Set more. I don't think I have to explain why hehe! But I'll be truly grateful to whoever will give me this set as gift for the holidays.
    Looking forward to your lip swatches and updates on the wear test of these lippies, Ms. Maj.
