Lustrous Lip & Cheek Tint Raw Review



Let's start by setting this straight : I have perpetually dry lips, the driest of all dry lips (I'm claiming that!) in the Beauty Blogging industry!  Because my lips chap and crack and bleed on some mornings whenever I yawn, let me know if you have the same I'll put you up on the top 3 list :P

When I chanced upon Nadine Lustre's Lustrous Lip & Cheek Tint, I have to test and use it right away because --- why not?  It's a collaboration with the country's top actress and for you to put your name to it, it must be good!

Unfortunately, not for this particular product --- don't get me wrong, I haven't tried ANY of the Nadine Lustre x BYS makeup so I'm just speaking on this particular product.

The color is beautiful on photos and I can actually achieve a fierce look with the shade RAW, but judging by the look on photo, you can see uneven patches on how the product clings on to my dear dry lips!  

But before that, I'm not stating this as a BAD product, it isn't --- if you have nice, hydrated lips!  Maybe, if you are into Korean gradient lips, this will also work because it does give a nice-looking stain!

Swatch: 01 Raw
This is a deep red shade that looks like blood!

The packaging itself is a bit confusing as I'm used to owning "transparent" packaging for lip and cheek products.  For the golden brown packaging, I was imagining the shade to be similar to it but I was shocked when I pull out the applicator!  The color is deep, dark, blood-shot red so this is definitely not for the faint-heart!  You opt for natural look?  This may not be the shade you're looking for.


Now on the to the shade RAW which I own.  The moment I swiped a single layer on my lips, I knew this is meant to be a lip and cheek product because of the watery consistency.  It is very thin in texture so you would think using this on your cheeks would be great right?

Wrong...


The product is great in color but it dries off pretty quickly so if you plan to apply this on your cheeks, you have to work SUPER fast as this can stain easily.  So yes, I skipped this step and used this as a lip product for the whole time I tested this product.

Now, let's talk about this product as if it's meant for the lips.

The color is great when you want statement!  It's a nice color really but, I have to apply 3-4 layers to achieve a "close to even" look.  Because some of the product tends to gets absorbed into my lips and I have a few dark pigments left clinging onto my dry lips!

This is the best I did to achieve an even color, it isn't perfect but it's nice on photo (I must admit!)

I guess, I'd rather use this as a stain for gradient lips because I personally think it'll work better than way! 

If I plan to take photos and achieve that flawless-looking skin, RAW is actually a nice shade that flatters my skintone.
