Just in time for the Halloween season! Fashion 21 finally released it just on the last week of October 2013. Saktong there was a sale in Landmark Trinoma by the time I got there, so this lippie was only P90 that time.

I didn't know it was on sale at that time but that 10% off my 19-piece brush set really made my day!

Black lipstick is an intimidating color and many would only dare to wear it for the occasion, but it's a lipstick color that's always associated with rebelliousness, individuality, goth/emo, and even elegance!

Here's my haul! Brushes from Landmark/Artist Studio, hair stuff, storage box, and lipstick.

While the packaging is not the most fancy and elegant design in the world, it's what keeps this product less that a hundred Pesos! What's important is that it's sturdy. As for the scent, it's just minimal and has a waxy scent.

It's pretty sturdy.

It's a matte lipstick that glides smoothly on the lips without feeling thick or heavy. There's nothing special with regard to ingredients, but it has Vitamin E and zero preservatives.

No parabens?

Performance is so-so to be honest. It looks pretty good and stays on as long as you're not eating. Otherwise, you'll just end up with black outline on nude lips if you don't mind re-applying.

The shade looks pretty good but not so opaquely black. A good 2 or 3 layers would make it robustly black. I'm just happy with this shade coz it's matte and all-black (most of them black lippies out there have undertones of red or purple in them).

Ok, good enough.

Packaging - 4/5
Formula - 5/5
Shade - 4/5
Performance - 3/5

Why you should have it:
  • Affordable price (on sale in Landmark)
  • Good color payoff
  • Purely black color, no red or purple undertone
  • Does not look overly matte or flat, and has a pouty effect
  • Surdy packaging
Areas for improvement:
  • It looks cheap, but that's what helps to keep the price down ;)


This one's a keeper! So happy it's all black since many of the 'dark' lipstick out there have red or purple undertones. I wanted yung black is black talaga. And while it takes a few layers to get my lips all black, finishing with black eyeshadow would do the trick.
