Lipsticks are perhaps my favorite makeup products. I had to get stitches on my upper lip when I was young and that resulted in my upper lip being darker than my lower one. This might not bother many people, but I like having something on my lips that would cover it up. Since I have quite an aversion to lip-glosses, lipsticks are naturally the next option.
I got myself some Becute Lipsticks the other day and since they only retail for PKR Rs. 190 I got three, thinking that even if they don’t turn out to be all that great I won’t be wasting too much on them anyways.
These lipsticks really are pretty great for everyday use and although they aren’t the MOST moisturizing lipsticks out there they are very easy to apply using a lip balm or chap stick underneath. The sucky part about these lipsticks that may or may not bother many is that they have number instead of names, ugh!
With Becute lipsticks you get 4.2 gms of product for Rs. 190 which is quite good seeing how Luscious Cosmetics gives you 3.5 gms for Rs. 540. What I noticed while swatching these lipsticks in store is that the darker shades are much more smoother and moisturizing compared to the lighter colors but it’s nothing that problematic and all you need to fix the problem is a good lip balm. The staying power is for a good 3 hours and upon application the lipsticks have a cream finish.
Anyways, the first one is 314 which is the darkest one that I purchased and I find it to be a dark pink that is almost red. This lipstick is incredibly easy to glide on and the most moisturizing out of the three I have.
Next is a comparatively less red but still pink shade which is number 430. Once again this isn’t a drying lipstick but using a lip balm underneath would make application incredibly easier. This shade reminds me of Creamy Rose by Luscious Cosmetics.
Lastly, we have number 341 which is the nude shade that I got and the one that I use and love the most out of the three. This is undoubtedly one of the few nudes that would work beautifully on Pakistani skin tones. Most nudes tend to wash me out but this one doesn’t which I’m really glad for. Although it’s my favorite out of the bunch, it is the least moisturizing. I slather on lip balm before applying this and ta-da!
Stays on for 3 hours.
Great color selection.
Incredibly affordable at Rs. 190/piece
Has a bit of a crayon like scent (only if you pick up the lipstick to smell it, not otherwise)
Sturdy packaging (although not the most eye catching)
So that was my review on the Becute lipsticks. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below and are there any other great lipsticks in the market that I should be trying out? Thanks.
Until next time, tc :)
