AMW Reviews: Penshoppe's Rouge Lip Shade in Sangria

Penshoppe has always been one of the many brands I look up to when I was young, I would go into their stores and purchase t-shirts or jeans as a gift for my brothers or sister.  I would save up all my Christmas and New Year "red envelopes" for a nice Penshoppe top.

And who would've thought Penshoppe went global with the epic ALL STARS campaign featuring Ed Westwick, Leighton Meester, Ian Somelhalder and Asian matinee idol Mario Maurer and the most recent, Zac Efron?  Penshoppe definitely expanded its product portfolio and I'm not surprised they are now widely available ONLINE!

And what made Penshoppe even more interesting?  The availability of personal care collection --- from lipsticks to eye pencils, brush sets and fragrances!  

Since I am into beauty products, I can't help but got intrigued with the newest makeup line from Penshoppe.  I tried their Rouge Lip Shade in Sangria at once and mind you, it's a red shade!  And I'm finally comfortable wearing red!

Penshoppe says ---
Penshoppe allows you to channel your inner vixen into a sexy pout with Rouge Lip Shade, a limited edition collection of red lipsticks.  With three rich hues to suit the different skin tones of women --- Satine, Scarlet and Sangria, Rouge Lip Shade is a woman's must-have for a voluptuous pout.

Rouge Lip Shade is fortified with Color Hydradiance factor, a healthy blend of antioxidant benefits from white tea extracts. 

Size: 4g

AMW says ---

  • Well sealed upon purchase.
  • Glides on lips smoothly.
  • Doesn't flake.
  • Non-drying formula.
  • Sangria is a nice deep reddish maroon shade that looks good on most skin color.
  • Inexpensive.
  • No weird scent.


  • Only 3 shades available plus the fact that these are Limited Edition.

Housed in a gorgeous clear tube making it look like high-end lipstick brand.  The color Sangria is smooth and creamy upon application and is flattering on most skin tones.


  • Apply directly or use a lip brush to define your lips.
  • If you have super dry lips, moisturize lips properly, blot with a clean napkin before you apply red lipstick.
  • If you want your red lipstick to stay longer, use a red lip pencil underneath.
  • Check your teeth every now and then for lipstick stain.

Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone into inexpensive red lipsticks.

Where to purchase and how much?
All the personal care set are available in all Penshoppe stores as well as online via for Php199.00 (approx $4.62).

  1. when i heard wind of Penshoppe's new beauty line, i was first really interested bec i used to love their cream blush but when i saw how unkept their display was, i ended up not buying even if the products seemed nice.

    1. Oh no, really? sayang! Sana they read this and ayusin nila display nila!

  2. Ooo nice. I was looking at this when I was at a penshoppe store a few days ago but I was a bit hesitant. I guess I'll go check them out again because of this review! :)
