I’m a little behind with this review since the Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks were released last year in fall/autumn, nevertheless I would like to show you these, since these are my most used lipsticks at the moment. These lipsticks claim to be moisturizing and leave a glossy finish. For someone who doesn’t wear lipgloss often because of its stickiness, I was really curious about these lipsticks. Moreover, I really liked the previous Innisfree Color Glow Lipsticks, which I reviewed before (see >>here<< and >>here<<) and I will show you a quick comparison at the end of this review.
Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. Innisfree products are ususally free from harmful ingredients. The Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks are packed in a cardboard box out of recycled paper printet with soy ink. The description on the box is mainly in Korean. One side of the packaging states some facts about this lipstick in English, namely that it contains Camellia Oil, provides a smooth coating, great fitting and a pure glossy color.
The Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks are available in 10 different shades from which I chose No. 8 “Glossy red” and No. 10 “Latte brown”. You might think I have too many red lipsticks already, but this one looked so great and glossy in the promotional pictures that I couldn’t resist. :D
The lipstick packaging is simply white whith a colored plastic part at the bottom, so you see which color you grab. I think the white Innisfree lipstick packaging is very elegant. The only downside is, that it gets easily dirty if you carry it around in your handbag.
The lipstick bullet is protected by a rosegold colored metal part. For the Color Glow Lipsticks this part was silver. I really like the rosegold color better than the silver one. It simply looks much more elegant and pretty.
You only need to push up the lipstick bullet for a few millimeters, this prevents the bullet from breaking, since the consistency of the lipstick is very soft and creamy. The colors of the two lipsticks are shown in the swatch below. I only used one stroke for the swatches and you can see that it already looks pretty glossy, but also the color is not too strongly pigmented.
Using more than one layer you can even achieve a very pigmented look as you can see below. Both lipsticks are very soft and creamy and easily to apply. They remind me of lipbalm and they don’t dry out your lips. No.8 is a georgeous red, which also can be applied as a light reddish tint-like tone, but I prefer the full coat. No. 10 is a very pretty, nude-ish shade which is almost like my normal lipcolor. So the term “My Lips In Better” might be best at describing this shade. These lipsticks don’t accentuate dry lips or flakes and are suited for people with dry lips. The lighter shades might be more unforgiveable, but so far I didn’t have any problems with these two shades.
As I said, I already loved the Innisfree Color Glow Lipsticks I reviewed in the past and also mentioned in my “Top 20 Asian Cosmetic Products 2014“. I will show you below a comparison of the swatches from those two lipstick lines. The Color Glow Lipsticks were already shiny, in my opinion, but seeing the Creammellow Lipsticks next to it, I can clearly see that these new lipsticks from Innisfree are far more glossy. Also the Color Glow Lipsticks felt more like lipsticks on the lips, wereas the Creammellow Lipsticks feel like a moisturizing lipbalm. The pigmentation of both lipsticks is great, but for the Creammellow you have to apply more than one layer to achieve the pigmentation shown in the promotional pictures. After rubbing the swatches I realized that the stain of the Creammellow Lipsticks is more visible than the Color Glow and I also experienced that the staying power was better while wearing them, especially for No.8.
All in all, I’m super happy about my new experience with Innisfree lipsticks and I totally recommend these to you, even for thoise who don’t like lipsticks :D. The color selection is nice and the feeling these lipsticks leave on your lips is great, too. I bought my Innisfree Creamellow Lipsticks from W2Beauty. They retail for 16.50 US$, but I think they are not available.
