The Face Shop Wrinkle Repair Lipstick Review

The Face Shop Wrinkle Repair Lipstick

Hi IMBB readers! Today I’ll be sharing another product from Manila—this time what I have is from The Face Shop, a Korean brand of cosmetics and skin care, the first one to set up shop here in Manila, I believe. They’ve been here a couple of years now, before the fad here for Korean and Japanese cosmetics really escalated. Their packaging isn’t all cutesy like Etude House’s, but have a simpler, neat, and a bit more mature aesthetic. I like it too that instead of the usual pretty girls, they choose good-looking Korean male actors as their endorsers. It’s pretty unique. Their items range from very affordable to more pricey, and I’ve bought some stuff from the shop here and there, but their Wrinkle Repair Lipstick is undoubtedly the best product of theirs that I’ve tried.

I was happy to receive this as a gift, because I’m not sure I would have paid it any attention otherwise. This costs around 700 Philippine Pesos (approx Rs. 750), which is a bit expensive for me. The Face Shop offers a lot of cheaper lip products and I would have gravitated towards those if I were buying.

If you look at the photo above, you’ll see that there’s a small, lighter-colored circle in the middle of the lipstick, and the product claims that this small circle, or core, is made up of collagen-infused essence which moisturizes and plumps the lips. The outer circle, in turn, provides color and supposedly has vitamin E acetate, which is an antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient.

The shade I have is called BR801, which is a soft, brown-pink shade. Again, I wouldn’t have chosen this shade for myself because I don’t usually go for browns, but this turned out to be such a lovely my-lips-better color!
My swatch photo isn’t the best—it just looks brown here and it seems metallic, but in actual it really is a lovely brownish pink color and it has a bit of a glossy finish. It has some golden shimmers, but they’re very fine and barely show.

Definitely my lips but better! The Wrinkle Repair Lipstick goes on sheer and looks very natural. Pretty great for everyday, daytime wear. I do like it a lot for the color, but aside from that, I also appreciate this product because of its texture. My lips are always dry, so I really like that this has the feel and texture of a lip balm. It leaves my lips feeling moisturized after the color has faded, but doesn’t feel heavy. It’s a bonus too that it has longer lasting power than tinted lip balms and has good pigmentation.
I wouldn’t say this product is perfect though. It has a hint of a chemical taste upon initial application, but it goes away within a minute or two. Despite that, I really like this product and feel that it’s worth the price tag—feels like a lip balm, imparts color like a lip stick. I think I’ll visit The Face Shop soon and see the other shades this comes in.

I hoped you liked reading my article. 🙂 I’m all trying and discovering more Korean and other Asian cosmetics and hope to write more about them soon.
