Dress up your lips with a luscious, regal look and add ambiance to any vanity with this lavish, glamorous pewter toned lipstick case with smooth and creamy lipsticks in Royalty Red & Princess Pink. The intricately-designed case is embellished with glistening Swarovski Elements, each replicating the tone of the lipstick you choose.
Ybf offers 2 shades of their Royalty Pweter Lipsticks. The shade in Royalty Red is reviewed, below.
This lipstick comes in a metal tube designed with intricate carvings and ruby-colored Swarovski crystals. The packaging is significantly heavier than normal lipstick packaging, making this lipstick more appropriate for decorative and at-home use than on-the-go.
Royalty Red is a vibrant, strong, classic red color–perfect for Valentine’s Day. The color applies opaquely and evenly.
The formula is creamy and emollient, bringing plenty of moisture to the lips. There are few lipsticks on the market that match this one’s intense pigmentation and moisturizing quality.
I got the expected length of wear–2-3 hours before needed re-application.
The lipstick does have a scent that reminds me of the way my mother’s lipsticks smelled when I was a little kid. The smell isn’t offensive or even strong, but does seem dated.
Ease of Use: 8.25/10
I found this lipstick difficult to use out of the tube. I’m not sure whether it’s the shape of the lipstick or not, but I had a difficult time getting it to apply onto the areas of the lips that I wanted. You can see in the photo below that the application isn’t quite symmetric. You may need to use a lip brush to get the precise application desired.
Otherwise, the lipstick glides on smoothly and evenly.
For $28.80 you get 3.7 grams (0.13 ounces). MAC lipsticks are $14.50 but contain only 3 grams and don’t have the adorned packaging the ybf lipstick does.
