The lipstick of our Instagram dreams straight out of Beauty and the Beast. Trending all over social media, these fairy tale jelly lipsticks from Kailijumei promise long lasting natural coloured puckers that change magically according to your body temperature.
With a formula which looks clear but comes out pink, we find out what secret spell this flower is hiding.
How It Works
The Kailijumei Flower Jelly Lipsticks come in various names: Barbie Doll, Dream Purple, Flame Red and Minute Maid. All the names refer to the flower’s colour and bullet’s tint however, the lipsticks all swatch pink and will change colors according to your ph level. It’s a hybrid lip balm in the shape of a lipstick bullet that is not only moisturising but promises lasting colour as well.
Texture and Colour
As instructed, the starting point for applying the lipstick should be at the centre of the lips and to work your way out towards the edges. Straight away I noticed that though the bullet formula is solid, once it is applied it becomes velvety smooth and spreads very evenly on the lips. The moisture effect is very hydrating and definitely great for winter days when your lips are super chapped.
One of my main concerns was since I have a naturally dark toned lips will the pink tint even show at all? But, I was pleasantly surprised that the tint did pop through leaving a nice natural pink tone. Another clever thing is that the colour also intensifies when you rub your lips together as the formula becomes warmer for a more obvious effect.
Best suited to
The best thing about this lip product is, unlike a true lipstick colour, it is naturally occurring so it suits everyone regardless of skin colour. The extra added moisture is especially suited for anyone who suffers from super chapped lips.
Very simple. As the instruction says you first apply the lipstick starting at the centre of the lower lip and moving outwards toward one corner. Bring the lipstick back to the centre and run it outwards toward the other corner. Repeat with the upper lip. You can blot your lips after the application of your lipstick for longer lasting effect.
As the formula is very moisturising and also because of its tinting qualities, I didn’t feel the need to reapply to regain the colour effect over time which is handy.
When I wiped off the product with a tissue, I noticed the stained tint still remained which was promised. Since my lips were very rough beforehand, I can say for sure the hydrating effect still lasted and left my lips smooth to the touch.
Obviously the selling point of this lipstick is the flower inside. The gold flakes add an extra magically touch and do not hinder the smoothness of the product when applying it. Once you hit the flower, it says to discontinue the product which would be a bit of waste of whatever product is left. However, at a price point of around 1500 yen it doesn’t leave it too expensive to repurchase and feel like a total waste of money.
That being said, the outside packaging is far from being considered cheap. The lipstick case is sturdy and the metallic case feeling is quite luxurious when in your hands. The “push and pop” style dispenser is unique and makes it great as a gift.
