I would have gotten it eventually in Korea or in Hong Kong, it just so happens that it's slightly cheaper here due to the exchange rates with the KRW and HKD.
This was 35,000won for 4g.
Prior to purchasing this lipstick, I've been using the P&J 062 shade which is like a "my lips but better" color. The Maquillage lipstick just kicked P&J off its winner pedestal. But P&J still has part of my heart because the design on the lipstick is too cute and it's smells so nice.
Although the 2 shades look very similar in person, the Maquillage lipstick has a lot more shine/shimmer. It's so shiny!!
The lipstick is super moisturizing and smooth. I think it's smoother than the P&J lipstick. Whenever I use the P&J , I use a lipbalm to help the lipstick go on more smoothly, but with the Maquillage, I didn't need to use a lipbalm all the time.
I read somewhere that it's formulated not to sink into fine lines on your lips so this is a +
Even though this shade is in the Sheer category, I think the color pay off is excellent for a sheer shade.
As for lasting power, I'd probably give it about a 3/5. I didn't notice as much shimmer after 1-2 hours, boo!
Here's my entry for the Beauty Swatch Giveaway. I never do LOTDs just cuz my lips are too pigmented to really show anything...and I don't know how to take a nice picture!! XDXD I'm wearing the PK705, current fav!
