Absolute New York Perfect Pair Gradient Lip Duo in Rose Wood Review


Let's talk about dual purpose products!  I got a whole bunch of Absolute New York products when they were officially launched in the Philippines but this lipstick caught my attention in so many ways.

1. Cute packaging.
2. Great Shade.
3. Dual purpose - it comes with a lip liner and lipstick!
4. And can you just see the gradient color of the packaging?  The color of the packaging is similar as the color of the lipstick!  You got me at that Absolute New York!

This was the first lipstick from the brand that I tried!  I took it out from the bunch and tested this out immediately!  The launch happened several months ago and I took time to really test this out!  I am finally ready to share my thoughts on this!

Absolute New York Perfect Pair 
Gradient Lip Duo
(priced less than Php400.00)
 A 2-in-1 lip duo of complementary shades to line and fill in the lips. It's specially formulated to glide on and blend effortlessly for a creamy, satin ombre look.

Why I love such product? Absolute New York products are Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Phthalate Free, Fragrance Free and are VEGAN and Cruelty-Free!  

This nifty packaging is perfect!  A twist-type packaging with lip liner on 1 side and the lipstick on the other side. 

The lip liner is a share or 2 darker than the lip color which can also double up as a lipstick so you get at least 2-3 shades of lipstick in one!  If that's not savings, I don't know how you'd call it!

Swatch: Rosewood
Rosewood has a lipliner that looks deep red brown while the lipstick is leaning more on to the pinkish side.  Rose- lipstick Wood- lipliner - that's how I would translate this shade name!

As for application, I'd like to start by lining the edges of my lips gently with the lipliner.  The lipliner is abnsolutely creamy and easy to use!  I love how with just light hand, I get the real deal on shade from packaging to lips!

I like to rub my lips gently together and fill in the rest with the lipstick color!  It gives a nice feel and definition on my lips!

As for longevity, the Absolute New York Perfect Pair Gradient Lip Duo lasts me longer than regular lipstick.  How and Why?

The lip liner is the secret to it!  No feathering or bleeding, my lipstick lasts an hour or more longer than othr brands.  Keep in mind that the lipliner stays longer than the lipcolor so I end up having to retouch the center of my lips more than the outline of my lips.

What I do is I gently apply the lipliner all over my lips before I apply lipcolor!  That's the secret to long-wearing lip color!

As for texture, both lipliner and lipstick are a dream to use!  They glide on my dry lips quite easily.  You only need to apply lipbalm midday if you have dry lips to prevent lips from feeling dry and chappy.


Is this product worth it?

ABSOLUTELY!  There goes the brand name too!  The color is just a perfect match for my skintone and would work for most Filipinas!
