Sophie Martin J'adore Lipstick

Product Critique: Sophie Martin J'adore Lipsticks

cheap plastic container. but you can't complain for 79php! 

so I bought five, because they're so cheap and I've heard so many good things about them. I was actually supposed to buy 6, but Blushy Pink was OOS, so maybe next time along with other colors. :)

Now onto swatches:

Summer Pink

Ice Pink

From LtoR: Summer Pink, Paparazzi Pink, Ice Pink, Caramel Sugar, Mango Peach
the topmost color on top of Ice Pink, is NARS Schiap, just beacuse I though the color to a bit more similar, but obviously they're not. Schiap is a lot darker and brighter, while Ice Pink is a more demure pink compared to Schiap, but is bold on it's own. The two, though, belong to the same spectrum of color. So if you want a toned-down, candier version of Schiap, get Ice Pink. But it isn't a waste to get both because I can see different uses for both.

Onto discussing textures, I actually really like the texture of these lipsticks, they are matte with a bit of a sheen but nor drying at all. Very long lasting but the downside of this staying power is that it leaves a strong stain even after you've taken it off(that is why I lip-swatched only two because the colors might mix), so it isn't really advisable for photo shoots or special events wherein you change lip colors every now and then. But it is superb for everyday use, especially for lunch and dinner dates because it's still there even after you've eaten, and does not leave that awkward faded lipstick look.

Quick Summary:
- pigmented
- cheap
- does not accentuate fine lines nor flakes and the finish is just perfect!
- long-lasting
- not drying

hard to remove(I have to use make-up remover or it'll make my lips hurt) and there's a stain!
- not that easily accessible
- has a smell that might be off for some people, I can smell the lead content, actually.

Rating: 4/5
Where to Buy and How Much: online re-sellers, Sophie Martin dealers, Sopghie Martin Branches(not sure where the branches are but the main one is in Shaw Blvd. I think). 79php very cheap right? I wonder how much the capital is, perhaps around 30php?

Have you tried these lippies? How do you like/hate them? :)

'til next time!

They're pretty! I like Summer Pink, the Caramel one and Mango Peach! They seem like they are such great and inexpensive finds. :P The lead scent is a turn off though. :(

I have Blushy Pink, Summer Pink, Velvet Nude and Mango Peach. I love the colors and they are very pigmented and stays long! They are drying to me, though, so i have to apply lip balm still.
