Usually, in fall/winter each year Innisfree releases a new lipstick and since the Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick and the Innisfree Creammellow Lipstick I’ve always been really excited about the new lipstick releases. I was curious about the new Innisfree Real Fit Lipstick which were released end of 2015 and grabbed one of them.
Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skin care and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients from Jeju island and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. Innisfree products are usually free from harmful ingredients. They belong to the Amore Pacific group.
As always the Innisfree lipsticks come in a very sleek and simple packaging design. The products have mainly a white packaging and the Innisfree Real Fit Lipstick is no exception. The design of the lipstick container is a bit more chubby than the previous Innisfree Color Glow and Creammellow Lipsticks, but it also has the small plastic part at the bottom where you can see the color of the lipstick. I chose shade 5 called “Sweet Twenty Red”, a cherry red shade and the boldest color of the 10 available shades.
The cardboard box of the lipstick is made of recycled paper and printed with soy ink. It contains the Korean description only, except from the one side showing the key features of this lipstick: light fitting, clear color, long-lasting, and camellia oil. The bullet of the lipstick is protected by a silver metal part. You will find a saying printed there: “A lipstick that instantly covers your lips with a clear color and without a heavy feeling.”.
The lipstick applies smoothly, but it doesn’t glide onto the skin like the previous lipsticks I was talking about earlier. On the other hand the pigmentation is really great and you will achieve a nice layer of color with only one stroke. It doesn’t settle into the liplines either, but looks very evenly when applied. It is not a matte lipstick, but has a sheen – not as glossy as the Color Glow or Creammellow Lipsticks. the bullet has a fruity scent, which is only noticeable when you directly sniff at it. On the lips it doesn’t have any scent or taste. It is not drying and you can feel that it contains some oil (camellia oil). But it is not moisturizing either. It also doesn’t last long, especially since it is not transfer-proof and as most lips it is not food-proof either.
If I compare the lipstick to the previous releases from Innisfree I like the previous ones more. They had perfectly moisturizing properties for the cold season. Regardless, the Innisfree Real Fit Lipstick is a good and solid lipstick, but it is not as special for me as the previous releases. I must say that I love the color range though. I saw a review on Rini Cecillia and I really liked the shade “Dried Rose” in her swatches. This would be a shade I would be tempted to buy, since it is such a pretty mauve/dusty rose color. If you like rose-colored shades you might want to check them out.
