Review : SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream



Like I said in my previous entry, I always wanted to try out lip cream products because I don't have to touch up my lip colour every single time. Saying that just remind me of one video that I watch on facebook where a girl keeps touching up her lipstick every time she ate. Sorry, it is not every time she ate but every single time she bites her meal, she will reapply her lipstick. Can you imagine that? OMG.

I don't want to write much, let's jump to the review!!!


This is the new product range from Silkygirl. The time I bought this lip cream, it was on sale at Guardian. I don't know it still a sale until now or not. Regardless, just check out this product at your nearest drugstores at your place. It is hard to choose what shade should I pick up since there are varieties of colour provided. I want to take red but red is not my ordinary lip colour. Same goes to nude. At last, I just took my ordinary shade for my lip colour which is pink in 02 Glamour since it is wearable for the everyday makeup look.

The first time I wear it I just feel so uncomfortable on my lips. Maybe because it just was my first time using it. After it dries, it just feels like normal but still a bit of stickiness. I love how pigmented this product is. I love how easy the applications. But they have the downside too which I'm going to explain after this.

Tips : One thing that I would like to remind when you wear any lip cream is always scrub or exfoliate your lips because you wear lip cream so that it will look nice without looking so dry.



Pros

  • It feels light on lips.
  • Varieties of shades to be choose.
  • Affordable price.
  • Longlasting.

Cons

  • Dried and patchy lips after a few hours.
  • A bit sticky on lips.


Let me explains more how I feel about this Matte Junkie Lip Cream. Basically, I love how it feels when I'm wearing it. It feels light and soft on my lips. I also love that there are so many colours to choose from red to nude colour which is perfect cause I had a hard time to choose the perfect colour for myself. Other than that is the price. It is so affordable even students can afford it. The time I bought it was on promotion so it is about RM 18++ but I don't know if there still a promotion or not but the retail price is about RM 21++ if I'm not mistaken and I think it is still affordable. Longlasting. I don't know whether it is a pros or cons. It does stay on my lips for a long time but there is a con that I will explain later on.

As I said before, it does stay for a long time on my lips but the downside about this lip cream is that it turns out dried and patchy on my lips. I did scrubbed my lips. I did put a lip balm before I use it. But, it still makes my lips drying. Even though before this I did mention that it does feel light and soft but still I can feel a bit sticky on my lips which happened every time I stick my lips together.

The thing that I noticed is that it is a bit hard to remove. That's happened when I want to remove the remaining lip cream that has on my lips because I wanted to have a clean and smooth lips before I put any lip products on my lips. Since it is hard to remove with tissue and water (since I didn't bring any makeup wipes with me at that time) I just let it be like that (drying and patchy) until I reached home and remove it with my makeup wipes and immediately apply my lip balm cause my lips really really need it. But when I'm using makeup wipes to remove and clean it, it becomes easier. Maybe I do it wrong by just using water and tissue.

All above are just my opinions about this product. Some might not work for me but it works for you and vice versa. I don't hate this product tho, in fact, I love it. Maybe because of my lips conditions which are always drying so it doesn't work well on me. But, for those who already bought this, may I know your experiences wearing them? Are you having the same problems or it just me? And for those who are planning to buy this lip cream, go ahead. Don't feel hesitate to buy cause it might work on you.

Will I buy this product again? Maybe I would. I will buy it and pick other shades but I will not wear them for a long time. Maybe one or two hours would be okay for me so that the lip cream will look nice during that time I wear it. If they can improve the formulation to more hydrating one it would be perfect.

This is what I read from Silkygirl's website about this product :

This kissproof and transfer resistant lip colour applies like a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish. It stays on your lips through day and night activities requiring minimal touch-ups. Available in 5 rich and highly pigmented shades; 01 Retro, 02 Glamour, 03 Rebel, 04 Vintage and 05 Vixen.

I will rate ★★★★☆ for this Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream.
