The Facebook advertisements really paid off. I was convinced to give the lip pen a try. Though it is not as long-lasting or smudge-proof as most ads claim it to be. The product does stay on when it is dry and in contact with dry foods like bread. Once a drop of moisture from a sip of water comes into contact with the product, the lip colour is transferred.
On the plus side, it is long-lasting, does not dries my lips, and minimises unsightly lipstick stains on glasses/cups. I cringe at lipstick markings on cutlery; spare a thought for those washing up after you when you dine out.
Specific colours do not show well on my lips; they are relatively light. It doesn’t help that my upper lip is a shade darker than my lower lip.
I have tried Nude pink, which is too light for me, but it does give a feeble spark of colour. Sexy red is a shocker bright red for a more edgy and confident look. Lavender Peach suits me well, a very purplish pink. Burgundy Red, for some reason, doesn’t go well on my lips. It is permanently a bit patchy don’t apply well on my lip. I can’t wait to purchase the rest of the colours hard to tell what the actual effect is unless you use it on your entire lip. Don’t fancy doing that with a tester.
Sasa currently has a 2-for $28.00 promotion. They also have a small range of MKUP products which I would love to sample. On www.ohwow.sg, it is now going at $15.90 a stick.
