Moving along the colder months, it seems that everybody's makeup look also gets darker and bolder. I have talked about my awesome red lips for the Fall in my Favorite Red Lipsticks but currently I've been rocking the darker lip color. The Stylenanda 3CE Lip Color in 604 Vamp is a rich burgundy lipstick that for me, just screams winter.
The box packaging for this lipstick is really artsy for me. The shade is listed at the bottom of the box for easy identification of the lipstick. The lipstick tube itself is very chic and classy, angled on the sides and reminds me of Tom Ford lipsticks. It is in a classic black tube with the 3CE logo on the top cap and the name 3 Concept Eyes on the lower half of the tube. The tube itself is bigger than most lipsticks so if you're the type of person who organizes your lipstick on those acrylic lipstick organizers, this won't fit. I have some of my lipsticks in an organizers but this simply won't fit in them.
On the tube, the shade looks plum, a cool toned purple, but on the lips it actually leans more on the burgundy red color but still cooler toned. It is a very wearable dark lip color and is not harsh looking like what most darker lip shades.
The product itself is so rich and creamy and applies so smoothly on the lips. Though it is a darker lip shade, you don't really need to fuss much about it's application since you can easily apply it right from the tube. It doesn't really need a lip liner or a lip brush for application. It doesn't feather at all and has a great staying power. It wears well for about 5 hours through eating and drinking and when it does wear off, your lips would slightly be berry stained, which looks really nice. It is a creme finish lipstick which is moisturizing as well, great for the cold weather where lips are extremely prone to drying and chapping.
This product retails for $19.71 on the Stylenanda website. I think it is a fair price, would be better if it was a little bit cheaper. This does compare to a higher end lipstick. Comparing it to MAC's cremesheen and satin finish lipsticks, this product has a much better staying power and is more creamy and moisturizing.
Overall I am really pleased with lipstick and I have recently done a makeup look with it and I've been receiving a lot of comments saying that this looks really good on me (thank you!). I am definitely a fan of this lipstick and this lip color. This gets a ♥♥♥♥♥/5 from me.
