Missha’s 2012 Spring/Summer collection includes two Glam Art Rouge lipstick shades–one is coral-pink and one is purple-pink. This review is for the shade SCR304, which is the coral shade.
The outside of this lipstick tube has a special-edition Designer Kim Jeehee image on two faces and embroidered flower designs on the other two faces. The tube cap slides of and clicks closed. The packaging is extremely light-weight. The tube inside is octagonal instead of round like a normal lipstick tube.
This coral shade is so easy to wear. The lipstick is pigmented, and while it’s not quite translucent, there’s something about the shade that looks natural. If you’re someone who has a hard time wearing coral colors, but want to be able to rock the trend, this is a great color to try out.
The lipstick has the consistency of a balm, meaning it’s very moisturizing and makes your lips feel soft and smooth. Despite having the feel of a balm, though, this lipstick has pigmentation much closer to a lipstick. I get about 2 hours of wear from this product before wanting to re-apply.
Oh, and did I mention that this lipstick has an SPF of 15 to help protect your lips from sun damage?
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
The creamy formula glides over the lips effortlessly. The consistency of the lipstick is also easy to control, so you get a precise application without much effort.
For $15.99 you get 0.12 ounces (3.5 grams) of product. This is an average amount of product (on the higher end of average) and a lower price than brands like Too Faced, Tarte, and Clinique.
