Review: Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks

24. February 2015


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 Creammellow Lipsticks

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.

Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks

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.

Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks

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.

Innisfree Creammellow Lipsticks

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.

    Hi Berries =)
    Erstmal danke für das tolle Review <3
    Ich hätte da eine Frage, färben die Creammellow Lipsticks eigentlich ab, also auf Gläsern und so? Und wie ist denn der Geruch von ihnen? Ich habe meistens Probleme mit Lippenprodukten die stark perfümiert oder nach Rosen riechen. Deswegen wäre das ganz gut zu wissen, bevor ich sie mir selber kaufe. =)

    Lg Ni~

      Danke sehr! ♥ Also diese Lippenstifte färben schon ab, vor allem der rote, aber sie riechen kaum, nur wenn man die Nase daran hält kann man einen fruchtigen Duft erahnen, aber kein Rosenduft. Hoffe, dass das hilfreich für dich ist.

      • Ni 25. February 2015 at 8:53

        Jap, das ist extrem hilfreich. Danke dir! :)
        Ich glaube, ich werde mir tatsächlich ein paar Exemplare davon kaufen.

    OMG latte brown looks so pretty! I have heard a lot about these lippies but for some reason didn’t buy into the hype. I trust your review though and they look so glossy and beautiful! Going to look at them online right now. Thanks for your beautiful review!

    • Frl. Schnee 24. February 2015 at 15:48

      Latte Brown was also the shade I fell in love with when I saw the lipsticks released. It was after I read your post today about the EH lipgloss, that I thought I should put this post online :D

  • Donah @SJB 24. February 2015 at 15:56

    Ohhhh, I love the Latte Brown a lot! I own one from the Color Glow collection, which looks like a peachy nude and really love it, too. But I don’t think I paid that much for my lippie though, $16 is a bit steep, don’t you think??

      I like the color, too! On ebay you can find it between 10-17 US$ depending on the seller. So I guess it varies a bit. A Mac Lipstick costs 20 € in Germany, so I consider 16 US$ still okay for a good lipstick. Usually I find testerkorea the cheapest reliable seller (12 US$), but I only order from them when I have more stuff to buy, because of the shipping costs… Innisfree World doesn’t have the Creammellow lipsticks yet, but the Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick is priced 14 US$, and the shipping is also quite expensive, if they don’t have any specials….I wish they would open up some local stores worldwide :D

    Both shades are gorgeous!

    I really love this lipstick, and despite have only the 8, it’s awesome and my favourite until today. I’ve used all summer and it’s fantastic because didn’t have to use lipbalm.
    And the smell, it’s nice too.

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:29

      I agree about not having to use lip balm. I’m really using these often, too, and I could imagine that this is actually the first lipstick which will be used up quickly :D

  • AnnKathrin 24. February 2015 at 20:28

    Ich finde Latte Brown total schön und wollte ihn bei meiner letzten Testerkorea Bestellung mitbestellen, aber der ist leider ausverkauft gewesen :(
    Wenn er beim nächsten mal nicht auf Lager ist, werde ich mir mal eine andere Farbe aussuchen.

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:31

      Oh wie schade. Manchmal sind einfach bestimmte Farben viel zu schnell ausverkauft. Habe da auch ein paar Kandidaten von anderen Lippenprodukten wo ich seit Ewigkeiten warte…

  • Rini Cesillia 25. February 2015 at 11:11

    Latte brown looks so pretty!
    I agree that it is more like tinted lip balm than lipstick since the color is more sheer compared to color glow. Anyhow I still like it ^^

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:31

      I find that it is still buildable in a nice way. I really do love the finish and the feeling of them. :)

  • Maevamilk 25. February 2015 at 11:25

    I really love these lipstick, they are really awesome I think! I like the smell and they hydrate my lip so much!

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:32

      Absolutely agree ! Thanks for commenting ♥

  • moi sanom 25. February 2015 at 15:46

    They both look super pretty on you! Do they leave that much of a tint?How long does the tint alone last?

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:33

      So for full lips I use two coats of the lip product. After a good meal the lipstick will be removed, but in case of the red shade it leaves a visible stain. As long as you don’t eat or drink the tint itself lasts for a long time and you can feel the moisture on your lips.

  • Feelo 4. March 2015 at 21:17

    Wow, latte brown looks delicious on you!! They’re more pigmented than I expected. How was the longevity of the product?

    • Frl. Schnee 11. March 2015 at 13:09

      It stays like regular lipstick as long as you don’t eat a fatty meal. They do leave a stain, especially the red color, but the glossyness will be vanished.
