Firstly thanks to all for the lovely comments on my travelogue post. I have not been keeping well for the past few days, but your sweet comments gave me the energy to review this lip tint from the brand Savvy, which I picked up from Australia.
Rs. 500/- (approximately).
The lip stain comes in a pen-style packaging which looks very much like a sketch pen. The body color is that of the shade of the stain which is pink with hints of brown in this case. The shade name and number is mentioned on the body with the help of a sticker. The cap is sturdy opaque plastic which shuts with a click, so it is very travel friendly.
The shade “Pink Grapefruit” is the right mix of pink and brown. On applying once, the tint comes off as a pretty pinkish n*de, but when applied multiple times, the shade changes a bit and comes off as a darker version of the rose-brown shade. In either ways it is a very wearable shade both day and night.
The lip stain feels watery on initial application and due to the liquid-y texture, the stain feels cool on the lips. It glides well on the lips but dry lips would need a balm on top as it tends to highlight the flakes on lips, if any.
Pigmentation and Staying Power:
The pigmentation is average but one swipe is good enough for a slight hint of color on lips. The pigmentation can be built up on swiping repeatedly. The feel or texture does not change on multiple swiping. On the contrary, when allowed to settle for a few seconds, the lip stain stays for a very very long time. It has even survived light and heavy meals. Though after a full course oily meal, the color starts to fade from the center of the lips, it does not vanish completely. The good thing is that the stain is never left patchy on the lips.
Pros of Savvy Pink Grapefruit Lip Stain Pen:
- Cooling sensation on application.
- Nice packaging.
- Stays long.
- Matte finish.
- No funny smell.
- Non drying.
Cons of Savvy Pink Grapefruit Lip Stain Pen:
- Highlights dry flakes.
Would I Recommend Savvy Pink Grapefruit Lip Stain Pen?
Yes, you may try it as it is long staying as a stain should be.
Would I Repurchase Savvy Pink Grapefruit Lip Stain Pen?
Not the same shade, but given a chance, I would love to get other shades.
That’s all for the day….coming soon with more reviews….stay blessed!
