My Experience with The Face Shop Killer Brown Collagen Ampoule Lipstick:
Let’s begin with packaging of the product as I am head-over-heels in love with this gold lipstick tube. The lipstick comes inside a matte grey and gold colored cardboard box. The box bears all product details like its description, ingredients list, etc written on it. The shade name and shade number are written on a color-coded sticker on the top of the box. Inside this box, comes a beautiful lipstick tube.
The lipstick tube has a metallic finish. The mirror gold finish of the lipstick gives it a luxurious and royal touch. The base of the lipstick tube has a sticker bearing the shade name and number but the brand has not added any color-coded sticker or something.
The twist-up thing of the lipstick works pretty smoothly. The lipstick tube has the brand name and range name engraved on it. The cap of the lipstick has a nice magnetic closure. Therefore, the cap fits nicely with a quick magnetic grip and does not come off while carrying around. Overall, the packaging is so beautiful, innovative and travel friendly.
The shade “Killer Brown” is actually a gorgeous petal pink shade with some neutral undertones. The brand has named this lipstick as “Killer Brown,” but it is not brown actually, it is a pretty pink lipstick shade. The shade is subtle and apt for everyday use. It will suit fair to medium skin tones nicely. It is a gorgeous everyday shade and I love carrying this one to my college often. The shade looks different on different skin tones. The lipstick contains very finely milled silver shimmer that’s not at all noticeable on the lips and they just add nice luster to the lipstick.
The lipstick sets to a beautiful satiny finish. The pigmentation of the lipstick is excellent. It gives close to opaque finish in just one swipe. Therefore, I need a second swipe to even out the edges only. I have mildly pigmented lips and this lipstick perfectly covers all the pigmentation of my lips. The lipstick has a very faint fragrance that is totally non bothering and barely noticeable.
The texture of the lipstick is silky smooth. It almost feels buttery and glides like a dream on my lips. It glides so effortlessly on the lips and does not cause any dragging of the lips. It never tugs or pulls the lips. The texture is so lightweight and feels ultra comfortable on the lips. I really love the texture and finish of this lip color. It does not cling to the dry patches of the lips and looks even on the lips. The texture is lightweight and does not feel heavy on the lips. The lipstick has good moisturizing and hydrating properties. My lips never feel dry with this lipstick on my lips even if I skip my lip balm. It keeps my lips nourished for long. It keeps my lips hydrated after a full meal even when the color goes away. It plumps the lips nicely giving them fuller appearance. The lipstick has a tendency to transfer due to its creaminess, but it does not transfer heavily.
The lasting power of the lipstick is good. It easily lasts for 5 hours approximately on my lips with regular sipping of water. The lipstick survives light meals too with a little fading from the center of the lips, but the outer lip line smudges a little after a meal. Removing the lipstick is very easy. It never stains the lipsand gets cleaned nicely with a wet wipe. Overall, I love this lipstick.
