It’s been a while that the Missha Chiffon Painting Rouge liquid lipstick (or better to say lip laquers?!) have been released, and I bought one of the shades back then in order to review it quickly and close to the release date. But then my computer crashed and it took ages to repair it. Finally, after many weeks and months here is my review for the Missha Chiffon Painting Rouge in shade CRD01!
Missha is one of the worldwide famous Korean brands, especially their Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream is one of the most famous BB creams. They have a lot of online stores all over the world and are available in US/Canada, Australia and since some time they even opened up an online store for Germany, and a physical store in Ingolstadt in Germany! The products always come in a very luxurious looking packaging and the design is usually very mature and elegant and I think that it can be liked by almost everyone. The Missha Painting Rouge line, a collection of liquid lipsticks, was released with two version. There is the Missha Syrup Painting Rouge and the Missha Chiffon Painting Rouge. The words “chiffon” and “syrup” explain how the lip rouges feel when applied on your lips. The Syrup Painting Rouge leaves your lips with a gloss and moisturized, whereas the Chiffon Painting Rouge has a feeling like velvet on the lips, yet it is not a matte lip rouge, but has a lipstick like glow. The packaging design of both versions is similar and also very neat and simple. In total there are 5 different shades for each the Syrup Painting Rouge and the Chiffon Painting Rouge.
As you can see, the packaging of my Missha Chiffon Painting Rouge comes only with Korean description, but you can find the English and the German version (and many more) for both products on the official Missha pages. Although it may be that the product is not available in all countries yet.
Honestly, the name “chiffon” made me think of matte lips first, but already on the advertorial pictures you can see that it is a soft finish, but shows some glow. I was really curious about the texture. The Missha Chiffon Painting Rouge comes in a rectangular container with a doe-foot applicator and the first time I used I was really surprised about the feel of the product on the lips. Similar to the Skinfood Milky Rose Vita Color Lip Lacquer it feels super soft on the lips, more like some velvet canvas. It is not sticky, but feels powdery when you press your lips against the back of your hand for example. Nontheless, it looks moist. The more you dabb it with your finger the more the gloss dissapears and it can be blended out to a soft tinty color without glossyness. Having said that, you can already imagine that this product is not transfer-proof. But the texture makes it useable as a blush, since the finish is powdery after blending it. The applicator is easy to use, but is not ideal for creating sharp lines. I would use a lip brush for creating sharply defined lips with this product, otherwise there is the risk of feathering borders. Generally, this is perfectly suited for creating gradient lips and applying it in the center of the lips mainly and blur it outwards.
Despite the application of the Missha Chiffon Rouge Paint, which can be tricky if you are a perfectionist, I totally love the color and the powdery feeling instead of a sticky gloss feeling! The pigmentation of the color is great, too, although it transfers easily and is not long lasting. Nevertheless, the stain will stay on your lips for quite a while, but for the pigmented lips you will have to reapply it. You can get the Missha Chiffon Rouge Paint from W2Beauty for 8.92 US$.
