Review: Argelan Colour Lipstick

Review:  Argelan Colour Lipstick

Argelan is an up-and-coming organic cosmetics brand that offers full-scale prescription, ease of use on a daily basis, and comfort. I always see this brand whenever I shop at Matsumoto Kiyoshi, the largest drug store franchise in Japan. Only this time I got curious about their organic lipstick so I bought one. Here’s my straightforward review on Argelan Colour Lipstick in the shade of amber rose.

Review: Maybelline Fashion Brow Ultra Fluffy

Review: Maybelline Fashion Brow Ultra Fluffy

This brow pencil is in the shade of dark brown. I purchased this at a local Japanese drugstore a week ago. I’ve used it once but I think it’s enough for me to share my experience now. Let’s get right into it!

FEATURES

  1. Maybelline’s first gel-to-powder brow pencil that’s designed to last all day.
  2. Has a fuss-free tear drop tip that helps you fill in bald spots softly and easily.
  3. You can achieve full-bodied, fluffy and natural looking brows with a precise tail, without the need for multiple products.

PROS

  1. Even though my brows aren’t well defined, its color and formula give a natural finish.
  2. Application is easy even for a beginner like me.
  3. It’s true that the tip makes filling in bald spots easy.
  4. On my first attempt of using this, the weather was hot and I thought it was a good chance to put its quality to test. I didn’t use any other brow products. Went out somewhere with my husband and I was surprised to see it still in place when we came back home after 7 hours. Perhaps it could still last longer than 7 hours by the looks of it.
  5. You don’t need other brow products to achieve a natural look which can save you time and bucks.
  6. 1 stick can last up to a year or so in my case.

CONS

None so far.

This is definitely worth the price. I warmly recommend it.

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is not for me!

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is not for me!

This liquid lipstick is available in a range of super saturated shades and without a doubt, they’re all pretty. However, it’s not enough reason for me to go crazy about it. I may have made a mistake for purchasing 2 different shades and I swear I won’t try the others anymore. I think I’ve had enough.

It’s true that it lasts long but it certainly has downsides.

  1. It doesn’t come off easily using my regular makeup wipes. Rubbing your lips many times is definitely not a good thing to do. It can cause darkening and dryness.

Fortunately, I have a cleansing balm that helps me remove this thing off. I also use my cleansing oil sometimes.

2. The formula doesn’t let me prime my lips using a lip balm because if I do that, the ink won’t be fully absorbed and will result to breaking or peeling.
3. Since I can’t apply lip balm before this product, my lips tend to dry or crack after a couple of hours. And it’s not pleasing to look at.

4. It feels heavy on my lips.
5. Even if I use just a little dab of the product, it still takes time to dry so it’s not transfer-proof.

I have these shades now but will be thrown away later. It’s a shame this product doesn’t work at least for me. This isn’t bad-mouthing and I’m not upset at all. I’m glad I’ve tried this, though. If not for this experience, you wouldn’t be reading this review.

I bought the shade 70 at Watsons in the Philippines while 210 at Don Quijote here in Japan.

Have you tried this? I’d love to hear your experience.
