Ministar Professional Makeup Liquid Lipsticks

Another Liquid Lipstick post :) 

In search of the perfect liquid lipstick, I have been buying a lot of different brands that are out in the market and I came across the brand Ministar Professional Makeup. 


Packaging is very straight forward. Round clear cylinder with a black top handle with the print Ministar Professional Makeup printed on it. I think there are 9 shades available. I only bought 4. Shades do not have a name. It only has numbers like 101 to 109 if I'm not mistaken. Inside is a straight doe foot applicator. 

Performance as a product

Pigment wise, you need to at least do 2 swipes on your lips for the colors to show. It also takes some time for the product to dry. It dries up matte which is a plus. Oil based makeup remover is a must. 


Price wise, it is very cheap. It only costs PHP120 for each tube (it's around US $2.55 - talk about cheap?!) 

The Rundown 

- very cheap 
- comes in a lot of shades, some even comparable to high end liquid lipsticks 
- you can buy it from a physical store in Shaw, Mandaluyong or you can buy it online 

- takes a bit of time to dry up 

- It has a powdery plasticky smell which bothers me a lot but once it's dried the smell goes off 

Would i recommend it to others?
For those who are in a tight budget, you can try and buy it but be aware that there is a scent. 

Would I repurchase? 
- Probably not. It has a lot of product. I probably won't finish the tubes by the end of the year.

Liquid Lipstick Review: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in I'm Nude

I'm in my search of the best liquid lipstick in the market at the moment and I finally bought the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick. There has been so much hype for this lipstick and I wanted to see if the hype was real. 

I bought the shade I'm Nude. 

It has a doe foot applicator which has a unique shape. 


It's really pale and I look flushed on it with my skintone. 

The Rundown

-Has a lot of product. It has 0.19 FL Oz/5.6 ML as compared to the KYLIE Lipstick which only has 0.11 FL OZ /3.25 ML 
- I like the finish. It's not drying on the lips and it feels lightweight 
- Scent is not strong which is a plus for me 
- has more shades 

- cheaper than the Kylie Lipkits

- shipping is a ton load for my part of the world 

Is it worth the hype?
I would say yes. I like the formula of the lipstick compared to others in the market. It also has a lot of lovely shades. 

Would i recommend it to others?

Would i repurchase?
Probably not because I probably won't be able to finish this one before the year ends but I would definitely buy other shades

Hot or Not: KYLIE Lip Kit in Candy K

I finally bought the KYLIE Lip Kit. I needed to give it a try since there has been so much hype for the product. 

I bought the shade Candy K. I was really debating at first on whether I'll buy Koko K or Candy K. Koko K seems fit for my skin tone but in the end I bought Candy K. 


Left swatch is the lip liner and the right one is the lipstick. The shade is really mauve-y. I was thinking it was a light pink shade because of the swatches online but every skin is different. 

This is how it looks on my lips 

The rundown: 

- It has a good amount of product 
- Has a lip liner 
- Super long lasting 
- It's super matte 

- It has this scent that reminds me of medicine that's about to spoil. It bothers me a little but once it is dry, I'm okay with it 
- when you start to eat oily food, it immediately runs off but all lipsticks in general are like that. 

- I find it a bit expensive. Well, for my part of the world, I have to pay a lot for shipping and handling. 
- Super drying. From a far it looks good but up close, you will see the cracks on my lips. 
- Kylie Jenner Lipkits in general has limited shades. 

In a nutshell, I like the formula of the lipsticks. It's very long lasting and hard to remove. Although it is a bit expensive I must say. There are other brands which are cheaper and does the same job. 

Should you buy one? 
I say, why not? If you have the money to splurge on lip products :) 

Would I repurchase? 
Probably not. It has a decent amount and I wouldn't probably be able to finish it by the end of the year. I would try her glosses though.
