Shien Cosmetics Lipstick Review

The other week Shien Cosmetics got in touch to ask if I wanted to try out some of their lipsticks. I was so blown away by the presentation of the website and the beautiful swatches and the alluring and sensual feel of the brand that I replied immediately and spent the next week waiting eagerly at the door for the postman!

Here's some info:
  • $18.00 each 
  • Enriched with white camellia oil, green tea, red algae, and essential vitamins
  • Paraben free
  • Cruelty free

Viper's Kiss

The lipsticks are formulated with 'gold and olive-toned Asian skin tones' in mind but that doesn't mean they won't look good on a wide range of skin tones. I'm pretty pale and haven't seen the sun in over one thousand years but I still love these colours on myself.

The lipsticks I picked out have matte finishes but they aren't drying, they're super creamy and just glide on to the lips. I find that they last for a good few hours before they start to break up in the middle and need reapplying. I really like these lipsticks and have been wearing Viper's Kiss and Shanghai Rose non-stop since they arrived! The only disappointing thing is the fact that three bullets have already snapped off and two of them arrived that way. However, I fixed them using the trusty old lighter/fridge trick and they're good to go again so I'm not too bothered about it.
