Review: Labiotte’s Wine Lipstick

Brand: Labiotte (Chateau Labiotte)
Product: Wine Lipstick Fitting
Shade: 4
Price: 19.51 AUD
Bought from: W2Beauty

First impressions: The colour is more discrete than I anticipated and a bit more matte than I thought it would be. It’s still a nice colour, so I’m not disappointed, just a bit caught off guard. The packaging is awesome. It feels really nice on the lips, it’s lightweight and not very drying.

Packaging: It’s a wine bottle. I like wine bottles. Especially when they’re comfortable to hold, stay closed, and stand up on their own.

Usage: I wear it without lipliner or lip primer. It stays on pretty well but if you want to keep the bottle on your desk, you can probably use the need to reapply the lipstick as an excuse. The cut is slanted rather than pointed, so you might find some parts of your lip need to be painted with care.

Value for money: 20 AUD is pretty mid-range for lipsticks and I’d say the price is fair considering the extra work that was put into the product. It’s fine but doesn’t make me giddy with what a steal it is.

Would I buy this again? Maybe. It takes me a while to get through lipsticks and this shade is nice but not amazing. I might consider picking it up in a different colour the next time I buy from W2Beauty.

K-Beauty Haul – W2Beauty

So, this morning, my long-awaited package from W2Beauty arrived! Naturally, I thought I’d let you know what was in the package.

Above is the main skincare items I got. The Innisfree essence and the steam balm from TonyMoly are old favourites of mine. I’ve been wanting to try the Etude House Bubble Tea sleeping packs for ages and opted for one that is based on green tea. The avo in the middle is a lip scrub from SkinFood that even smells of avocado. Lastly there’s a peel off Pokemon pack with a Digglet theme. I’m assuming it’s similar to other peel off masks, but I haven’t tried it yet. You can get a better look at the Bubble Tea sleep pack below, along with a hand cream from the Saem that I’m extremely keen to try.

On the left, you can see the hair products I got. Firstly, a conditioner and a hair mist from Innisfree that are designed for coloured hair. Secondly, an argan oil type essence that’s meant to be curl-enhancing (hoping it can boost the little bit of natural wave I’ve got going) from SkinFood. On the right we’ve got two body masks. Firstly, a parafin hand mask that I just tried (it’s awesome). Then to the right is a classic foot mask that’s meant to be peeling.

 

In regards to lip products, I ended up getting three things. A lipstick from Chateau Labiotte (also seen on the right), a lip tint from the Saem, and a lip balm from 3CE. I only ended up getting two eye products, two different liners. Firstly, a gel liner from Innisfree in a dark brown. Secondly, a cushion eyeliner that’s designed to look like an inkwell and feather-pen. I’m so excited to try it.

Lastly, I thought I’d show all of the amazing samples I ended up getting included in the order. It seems like a lot if you’re used to Western stores, but it’s really common for Korean stores and brands to include heaps of samples when you purchase things.

This cost me a total of 153AUD and shipping from W2Beauty is free when you spend more than 60 dollars.
