♫ Fall Out Boy - Immortals
Have you heard of Korean cosmetics brand Banila Co. before? I have read a number of reviews about their products, and it seems pretty good, but have not been able to try any because it is not available in Malaysia. :(
However, thanks to Cosmetic-Love, I was given the opportunity to try out something from their store, and promptly chose this Banila Co. The Kissest Tinted Creamy Lip Crayon in the shade #04 FC Fuchsia. You know me, I cannot resist a pretty lippie! (๑>◡<๑)
|Unfortunately, all the information is printed in Hangul (Korean)|
To be honest, I was initially attracted to this lip crayon because of the cute and quirky doodle design on its packaging. The lip crayon comes in a pretty box adorned with the same doodle design as the lip crayon tube itself. There is a transparent plastic cover to protect the tip, but you will need to push it in quite firmly to make sure it doesn't fall off when put into your bag, and also make sure you don't twist the lip crayon out too far in case it squishes against the top.

The one I have here is #04 FC (Fuchsia), a vivid purplish red colour that is right up my alley. (｡◕‿◕｡)
The colour is very pigmented, and the texture is very smooth and creamy. It does have a slightly sweet scent (I don't know to describe it, but I have a lip product that smells vaguely similar), but it doesn't bother me.

✓ Pros: Pigmented, smooth and creamy, moisturizing, leaves a nice red stain even after meals, beautiful packaging, convenient retractable lip crayon design.
✗ Cons: Quite pricey compared to some other lip crayons, slightly sweet scent, not available in Malaysia.
You can purchase the Banila Co. The Kissest Tinted Creamy Lip Crayon (3.1g) from Cosmetic-Love. They also sell a wide range of Korean cosmetics and skincare products, and 100% genuine, so you can buy from them without any worries.
