I know I’m late to the game but I just recently got my hands on a Kailijumei lipstick.
I know, what a mouthful to pronounce. I had to keep checking how to spell it.
This beautiful clear lipstick with a real dried flower inside it is so pretty. It kinda reminds me of the rose in a jar in Beauty and the Beast.It comes in different colors but of course I chose purple.
I’ve wanted to buy it for a long time but just couldn’t bear to part with over 40 sgd – or at least that’s how much it used to be, I think, when it first came out.
But when I found it on sale at Cocomo in Qoo10 for just 6 bucks, I decided to grab it along with a bottle of Park and Son beauty water, which was also on sale and which I also wanted to try.
I thought the lipstick would be a cheap knock-off for that price, something like those dirt-cheap China-made products being sold at nameless stalls, but to my surprise, it doesn’t look like it at all. The gold and red casing looks kind of elegant, and the mirror that runs down one side of the outer casing is really helpful for putting on the lipstick.
The lipstick itself glides on like a dream and smells like strawberries – not at all like the cheap lipstick smell that usually comes with knock-offs.
As for the color – they say all variants have the same color lipstick despite having different color flowers. The clear color reacts with your own chemistry and transforms into a variation of pink. On me, it’s a translucent bright pink.
It feels moisturizing, and lasts about as long as a typical non-long wearing lipstick.
Would I recommend it? Yes, only if you’re paying a drugstore lipstick price for it, because it looks pretty but definitely doesn’t perform like a luxury lipstick (which was what it used to sell for) and once the novelty wears off, you might hate yourself for splurging on it.
Not to worry, though, this seems to be sold cheaply at a few online shops now, so go find one.
