First Lipstick - G9 SKIN Lipstick Review & Thoughts
|G9 SKIN First Lipstick|
" Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world"
Pucker up with some new lipsticks from an upcoming Korean brand - G9 SKIN, a sub-brand by Berrisom.
The "First Lipstick" series has 8 gorgeous shades for your everyday makeup looks but currently you can purchase only 5 color options from their Malaysian retail website. I was able to get my hands on the 5 popular shades:
#01. Midnight Red
#02. Dry Rose
#03. Dazzling Pink
#04. Peach Brown
#05. Vintage Red
The packaging was slick black with just a simple logo on it. You will be able to determine the color from the bottom of the tube. From the first impression I sure was already impressed with how vivid the color looks and how simple the overall packaging is. Just the perfect size to slip into my bag and on the go.
Let's start with the swatches and how it looks in person.
G9 SKIN #01 Midnight Rose
#01 Midnight Rose is just a gorgeous bright red color, perfect for a night out or on your date night. FYI, this is the perfect shade of red that has blue tones in it which helps make your pearly whites look gorgeous. I am normally quite skeptical of Red lipsticks because they can really make you look yellow but this shade is just great.
G9 SKIN #02 Dry Rose
Next we have #02 Dry Rose which is a subtle vintage pink color that you can pair in for a daily makeup look. I love how this color just adds some flush to my face. One of the must have item for me is a lipstick or liptint especially if I'm bare faced. You sure don't want to look like a sick patient roaming around the street without an streak of color on your face.
G9 SKIN #03 Dazzling Pink
#03 Dazzling Pink is a vivid bright pink color that most of my friends would categorize it at Miriam's color. This bright pink color has a tint of fushia to it and can really help brighten your skin complexion. I normally would not apply a full lip color but you can also use it for a gradient look. Just apply it to the inner corner of your lips and blend it out naturally.
G9 SKIN #04 Peach Brown
Now #04 Peach Brown is an interesting color option. I don't have any nude lipsticks and I tend to feel it makes me look like I just walked out of a hospital ward. However, for the G9 SKIN Peach Brown, it has a tint of coral in it which actually adds some color to the nude. First time trying out nude colors and well, I think with the right makeup this would be an interesting lip choice for a date night.
G9 SKIN #05 Vintage Red
Finally #05 Vintage Red. If this is your first time trying a red lipstick, you can try this shade. It will slowly ease you into trying out brighter red. The red glides on easily
The G9 SKIN First Lipstick series exceeds my expectation of a good lipstick choice. I would normally go for liptints because I often find lipsticks to not glide on the lips and can get quite chalky. However, this lipstick series glides on perfectly.
The color payment was gorgeous as you can get that exact vivid color in just one glide. Although it claims to be a matte lipstick, it was more of a semi-matte lipstick that does not leave your lips dry. This moist lipstick is perfect to hide any fine lines on your lips and is also long lasting. One tip is after applying one layer, blot it with a piece of tissue then reapply. This ensures that the lipcolor stays longer.
For those who are are not a fan of bold lips and prefer gradient lips, you can try mixing the colors together to give you a unique color combination. Just apply a darker color like #01 Midnight Rose in the inner corners of your lips and blend it outwards. I think blending #03 Dazzling Pink with #04 Peach Brown would be an interesting color combination as the nude from the Peach Brown would soften the vivid pink.
So which is your favourite color? Because I just can't decide! Share with me which color do you think suits me best.
