A 'Prestige' product with a cheap price tag ♥Saturday, June 05, 2010
A little while back, I received an email from Prestige, introducing their new products. I totally forgot about their email, and today, I was again on the prowl for the perfect everyday-wear lipstick. I was in Beauty Bar in Powerplant and came across Prestige's latest Color Treat Anti-Aging Lipstick. I had no idea that they have finally come to Manila!
After browsing the counter and trying lipstick after lipstick on the inside part of my arm, I decided to try on Beautifully Buff.
The first thing I noticed about this product is that it goes on smoothly on your lips like lip balm or a chapstick. It's very creamy and glides on easily! I just love it's pinky-nude shade. It's like a tinted balm (but a bit more pigmented). It's one of those shades that you can pull off with just about any look you feel like, and be out the door in a jiff with a perfectly looking applied makeup. The color lasts awhile, depending on how often you wet your lips. Of course, if you eat, the color tends to rub off your napkin. But I noticed that if you just press your lips together, the color stays on long.
When the color eventually does fade, it fades equally all around your lips. I hate those products where only the inside part of your lips lacks color, and you're left with a ring of color around your lips.
This product has a very refreshing and feminine smell. It's not like those heavily perfumed lipsticks that are common now a days. It is rare that I find something so sweet smelling like lemons and melon (well, at least this is what I am picking up). The smell is very subtle and you will have to sniff it a few times to distinguish the smell.
As for the anti-aging benefits it claims to have, I really can't tell yet since I haven't used it long. But with its balming effect and moisturizing feel it gives, I believe so that it will live up to its claim!
This is me sporting the product! I topped it with Chanel's Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in #131 (or Mica). They look soooo good together! ♥ I got mine in the US for $27, so I'm not sure how much they cost here. Just ask their beauty associates how much they are, I'm sure the prices won't be that far off.
With a whopping price tag of only PhP 375.00 for Prestige's new lipstick, this definitely is a STEAL!! Available in all Beauty Bar Boutiques! Chanel products available in Rustan's Department Stores.
