Company’s Description

Color-drenched long lasting lipstick. Pigment-saturated lipstick to dress lips with intense couture color. Both light and rich, this moisturizing formula glides on to deliver stay-true color and a full-bodied finish. Exceptional comfort and a deep velvety texture. Fashion-forward hues for voluptuous lips that inspire desire. Bold color and intense creaminess create plumped, volumized lips that scream sexy.

Japonesque, most widely known for their brushes, has now expanded into makeup with a line exclusively available through ULTA. The line includes 12 lipsticks. This review is for the lipstick in Shade 8, which is a deep pink-ruby shade.

Packaging: 9/10

This lipstick comes in a reflective black tube made of plastic. One end of the tube shows the color of the lipstick inside.

Quality: 9.75/10

Shade 8 is a strong, pinky-ruby shade without shimmer. The color leaves a somewhat glossy sheen to the lips and imparts opaque color.

This lipstick’s formula is creamy and moisturizing, making it extremely pleasant to wear. The lipstick lasts for 2-3 hours on the lips and will leave a stain behind even after the lipstick has come off.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This is a bold color, so it’s more difficult to use straight form the tube when you’re trying to get a precise line. The extreme curve on the bullet also makes application a little awkward. But otherwise, application is pretty easy because the formula transfers well.

Price: 9.25/10

For $20.00 you get 0.14 ounces (3.9 grams) of product.
