You guys have seen these products on my haul post and most of the reaction I got was how over priced Skin Food products are here as compared to Korea. Admittedly, I too was surprised when I stepped into the shop and saw that a tube of lipstick costs PHP600+. I was expecting the prices to be somewhere in the range of Tony Moly’s and Etude House’s. Nevertheless, I had a PHP500 gift certificate so I went ahead and used it.
For that, I got this Skin Food Honey Glossy Rouge Lipstick in the number 606. It’s a peachy nude translucent shade that I don’t have in my collection yet. Although nude colors don’t go too well with my coloring (makes me look dead), I haven’t given up on nude shades yet and am still on the look out for ones that are perfect for me.
This was the first time I’ve seen a bullet shaped like this. I don’t think I prefer this shape to the regular ones. I find it more difficult to maneuver around the lips and make the application precise. It still serves the purpose though so maybe I’m just whining about something unfamiliar to me. 🙂
I would say this lipstick is very creamy in terms of texture and the color is slightly sheer. You can see the swatch below for reference plus a before and after photo of my lips without and with this shade. 🙂
Above, you can see that in the before photo, I had very visible wounds on my lips. After applying the lipstick, the wounds were slightly covered.
To be honest, I don’t find anything special about this lipstick especially at that price point. The color is all right though and the lipstick itself is not drying.
Moving on, here’s another Skin Food lip product I got from my friend as a gift from her trip to Korea. Apparently, she only got it for around PHP150 in Korea. It’s double the price here, unfortunately.
Is there anything that differentiates it from other lip balms? Not really. I love its Raspberry flavor tho and it is indeed very moisturizing. I suggest you get this is you are addicted to lip balms and just like collecting different brands. 🙂
Here’s what it looks like on the lips:
Overall, I can say that I’m not very impressed with Skin Food’s lip products. I have a friend though who swears by their powder. I guess for the prices here in the Philippines, I don’t see anything extra special in the products that make them worth buying. 🙂
Let me know your thoughts though. Any Skin Food user out there?
