A couple of days ago I received a beautiful parcel from Stella from http://www.stylebystella.net/
with a huge pile of goodies I received because of winning her Valentine’s Giveaway. I was so happy about it, and I was even happier when I saw all the nice cosmetic brands she put together for this giveaway. One of the items was Innisfree’s Color Glow Lipstick
in the shade “Romantic Autumn Rose” (No.3).
In case you read my blog before, you may have stumbled across my review for Innisfree’s Color Glow Lipstick before. Back then I reviewed the shade “Plum Burgundy” (Click >>here
<< for the review). I really do love this lipstick, and this is why I was really happy about especially this product within my winnings.
Apart from loving this lipstick even before, I was also happy that I received a pink shade, because I rarely buy pink products and it gives some more versatility to my lipstick collection :D The packaging is typically for Innisfree very clean and unspectacular, but I like it nevertheless.
The paper card box unfortunately doesn’t contain any English translation, only the symbols on one side of the box a re explained.
The lipstick contains 3.5 g. It has some kind of metal support around the lipstick, probably in order to prevent that it breaks off easily.
The color of the lipstick bar is a pretty rose-pink shade and I think that the name “Romantic Autumn Rose” is a perfect choice for describing the shade. The lipstick glides smoothly and feels very creamy. It does leave a descent amount of pigmentation on my lips, although my lips are naturally darker than the color of the lipstick. I don’t need to use concealer for seeing a visible pink shade on my lips. That’s great!
Nevertheless, I discovered with this shade, that it tends to accentuate dry flakes on the lips. The burgundy shade didn’t leave that impression, probably because the shade is darker, but with this pink shade I have to exfoliate my lips before. Other than this I love this lipstick as much as I loved the burgundy shade. It has a natural color and it is suited for upcoming spring as well, although this lipstick range was designed for last years autumn. The staying power is similar to most lipsticks, so you’ll have to reapply as soon as you eat or drink. Here is a comparison between the two shades:
All in all I love the Innisfree Color Glow Line and I recommend it to everybody looking for a creamy and moisturizing lipstick. Nevertheless you should keep in mind that the staying power is not comparable to the staying power of lip tints for example. And that the brighter colors may accentuate dry parts of your lips.
