beautiFRIDAY: A:CONCEPT Lipstick (Rose Brown)
Written by Ji | 17 November 2017
On the last BeautiFriday article, I reviewed A:CONCEPT Shape of My Face Triple Contour and loved how well the product blended. Check out the review HERE. I try to remain unbiased when I try out new products, but I’ve been loving their contour compact, so I had high hopes when I tried out this lipstick.
The lipstick is lightly scented and had a nice medium pigmentation. Sadly, on my lips the color was not a rose brown, but more of a coral. Which is not bad and perfect for the spring and summer, but I was hoping for a rose brown color. But if you check out the website it does state that the color is between a rose and coral. When buying a product, it’s always good to read the print. I for one, did not. My fault.
I drink a lot of water throughout the day, so the product didn’t last as long as I hoped. Within 2 hours, it was already fading, and I needed to touch up quite frequently. But I did learn a few things from the touch up. The product is great as a base, it’s easy to blend and if you set it, it will last much longer. Lastly, I wanted to make a note about the packaging. I loved the bottom half (even though it felt very light. I would have loved a heavier case.), but the top, the transparent plastic part (at least for me), ruin the aesthetic. It made it look cheap. If they could change a few things about this packaging, I would be more incline to buy.
Would I buy this again?
Maybe. I know the article seemed negative, but in all honesty, it’s an affordable lipstick with a nice smooth finish that produced a decent color on my lips. I would love to try out the other colors as well, to try to find my color. When choosing a lipstick, I normally buy it because of the color and quality of the product. While I did like the color of the lipstick, I did not like the plastic top. It shouldn’t bother me, and I should give the product another go, but the plastic top really doesn’t help sell this product (at least to me). But you never know, maybe when I finish this product, I may end up buying another. If I do, I will let you know.
