AMW Reviews: San San Soleil Lip Colour

Soleil is a French term for "sun".  It's the inspiration that HBC came up with to include it in their exclusive makeup line called San San.

When I got the 3 shades of Soleil Lip Colour, I used them right away because the packaging screams SUMMER and the colors call for "Sexy Summer!"

Here's my review for one of the brightest and happiest lipstick packaging I own....

San San Soleil Lip Colour says ---
  • Comes in 3 variants - Nude Carribean, Peach Ibiza and Pink Tropics
  • Neutral shades are very suitable for summer season.
  • Enriched with Vitamins A, C & E
Ingredients: (click to enlarge)



AMW says---
Pros
  • Very cute packaging, you get the see the shade of the lipstick inside with the "peek-a-boo" packaging.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Creamy and applies smoothly.  
  • You can adjust the pigmentation by applying more.
  • I usually put the limited shade availability under "con" but with this range, it's an exception!  I like the fact that they are "right on" with the 3 shades!  One on the nude side, pink then orange!  
  • Has SPF25 to care for the lips.
Cons
  • The kiddie/candy-like scent!  I would prefer to have this fragrance-free! 
Overall
A great start-up!  If you plan to own nude, pink and orange lipstick without breaking the bank, the San San Soleil Lip Colour is a good start!  Keep in mind that these lipsticks are on the light to medium side in terms of pigmentation.  Toned down version of those lip colors actresses use on television.

Tips
  • Dry lips? Prepare your lips by applying a good amount of lip balm or lip treatment prior to lipstick application.
  • Blot lip balm before lipstick application to prevent lipstick from sliding off.
  • After application, you can choose to press your lips on a clean tissue paper or pat it with loose powder for a matte finish.
  • If you have concerns on the ingredients, I suggest you use a "lip erase" or conceal your lips prior to lipstick application for "protection".
Will I repurchase?
Well, I got all 3 shades in the line so no need to repurchase!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes to try pinks, orange and nude lips without the "attention-seeking" factor.

Where to purchase and how much?

San San Soleil Collection is available in all HBC stores nationwide for Php109.75 (approx $2.55). Visit www.hbc.com.ph, or call HBC Customer Care at 9845555 local 228 / 0918-9215520.

Nude Carribean



Peach Ibiza



Pink Tropics

I can't seem to find my favorite shade out of the 3 as I alternate them depending on my mood!
Peach Ibiza is definitely "in" this summer!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    1. Hi sis, its difficult to tell as those are 2 different shades, you have to ask the person you are swapping with which shade she prefers :) That's what I usually do when I swap :)
