Today I'm reviewing one of Innisfree's lipsticks from their Fall 2013 line! (consisting of the Innisfree Mineral Melting BB Cushion, Color Glow Lipstick & Glossy Lip Lacquer)
Ever since I first saw it on Innisfree's site & saw Yoona's cf *-* I had to get one of the Color Glow lipsticks!~
Yoona just looks so pretty & sophisticated in her fall Trench coat (○´∀｀○) eeeeee~❤ *fangirling*
This is my first Innisfree lip product & I've always been quite curious as I heard they are really good! But also I rarely wear lipstick & Innisfree can be pricey so I was umming-&-ahhing about purchasing it - I'm glad I did now! ^▽^
So here's my review of the Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick 04. Watery Cherry Red~!❤
Original Innisfree Price:- 12,000원
KPOPTOWN Price:- £7.64
Not bad!~ Almost close to its original price! - It is not really that expensive compared to what some good quality lipsticks can cost here in the UK ㅠㅠ

I had a hard time choosing between 05 Deep Plum Burgundy or 04 Watery Cherry Red but went for what I know suits me, Watery Cherry Red - To be on the safe side, especially if I turned out hating the lipstick & the dark colour!
I love how this lipstick is packed full of natural ingredients & has no harmful chemicals!❤
. . . Is it weird that I find it cute? ;/////; I really love the simplicity yet prettiness of Innisfree packaging! It's really smart & puts a sense of pride in my makeup drawers!❤
I love the pretty green floral design on it too!~ The box is made from recycled paper & is printed with soy ink! - Environment friendly!~ (´ ▽ ` )ﾉ❤
'Moisture shine, melting texture, rich colour, camellia oil, 3-Free system'
|이니스프리 컬러 글로우 립스틱 4 물 머금은 앵두 레드|
I'm not so keen that is a matte tube. It is pretty but it gets easily dirty ㅠㅠ But comes off nevertheless with a wet flannel/tissue!~
It's also quite tall at 9cm but not bulky. It's sturdy & not cheaply made so travel-friendly~❤
. . .
The wind-up metal casing surrounding the bullet stops the lipstick from breaking! Clever Innisfree!❤
It's a creamy lipstick & creamy lipstick are easily spoiled - but this one with metal case is not!
The casing text is 'An extremely smooth lipstick with camellia oil & melting formula'
Innisfree claims the scent is 'lovely fragrance of Cymbidium orchids in Jeju'
Cymbidium - My nan calls them Boat Orchids! I can find them anywhere here in Salisbury. The lipstick does have a similar scent to boat orchid *0*❤ & with the usual pretty perfume scent put into lipsticks~
It's not overpowering & just smells very lovely~❤
The bullet is really interesting~ Not the usual pointed shape. I'm not very sure how this shape help with application of the lipstick but for me, as my lips are quite full; it helps me apply it much easier!
You get quite a lot of product in the tube~
This lipstick is 04. Watery Cherry Red - It is not a true classic red colour. It's almost like a raspberry pink shade.
In the claim-photo, is does have a pink-hue red finish. So it's true to the colour in the photo but not true to the colour of the tube (which is a classic red colour).
I like the pink-red colour however!~❤ It's really pretty & can be worn on young girls like me & ages up! Because it's not a shocking-sexy red shade & the colour can be intensified.❤
In the swatch photo, swatch 1 is a rosy-raspberry pink which I adore & with 2 swatches has intensified to a more redder-mature colour. The lipstick is very glossy & moisturising!
The bullet glides very easily when I swatched it on my hand & does not crumble because of how creamy it is~❤
So you go out with your friends, go to a little café & order a cup of tea. You drink it & nooooo your lipstick transfer to the cup & you lipstick has faded!（ ；´Д｀） ffuuuuuuu
This lipstick is very glossy so it easily transfer to cups & can be smudged easily around your face. . .
HOWEVER! . . .This lipstick holds very well & does get a little bit disturbed when in contact of water (or tea or cola or whatever you drink) & loses it's vibrant colour only slightly.
You drink your tea & eat your cake then go to pat your lips with a serviette - Your lipstick gets wiped off & dries ㅠㅠ
I patted my hand dry with a kitchen tissue & most of the lipstick was transferred off leaving a slight pink tint on my skin. Even the tint was still moisturised!❤
So in a nut-shell, this lipstick does not last long with drinking & eating. It transfers to cups as it is glossy & does get slightly get disturbed when in contact of water.
When it does wear off or you wipe it off, it leaves a tint to your lips without leaving them dry.
So my lips are light pink & against my pale skin, makes me look a bit dead ㅠㅠ When I wear eyemakeup, I always need to apply some kind of colour like orange or red to make them compliment my makeup & create a generally healthy look.
I did not moisture or scrub my lips for this review so I can show you how moisturising or drying this lipstick is. I did this for you because I love you guys despite you probably feel sick from how dry my lips are LOL
Touch the center of lips lightly and create natural gradation. Or apply according to lip line.
. . .
I gently tapped the lipstick in the center of lips & blended with my fingers. As I mentioned before, this lipstick colour is not a true red colour & the colour varies depending how you applied it. The glossiness of the product really varies the colour.
When I tapped it on my lips, it was a raspberry pink colour & when I blended it out, it went to a natural pink shade - very natural & cute!~❤
Even with just a little bit of lipstick on my lips in the gradient style, it's quite glossy & very moisturising.❤
. . .
This time instead of tapping, I glided the bullet across my lips. OH MY LORD GUYS, THIS IS LIKE SPREADING BUTTER ON YOUR LIPS❤ - I don't spread butter on my lips okay. LOL
I could spend the whole day just gliding it on my lips because its just so velvet & it really does melting on your lips omg. (○´∀｀○)❤
This is one coat of lipstick on my lips & the colour is super vibrant. It's not shocking-sexy red like Marilyn Monroe-esque but its red-raspberry pink!~❤ It's very suitable for everyday look & for teen+plus ages.
|Outside - no flash|
I hate sticky lipsticks & glosses & never last an hour without wiping it off but of the stickiness. This lipstick is amazing.
Because of the moisture, it does settle in lines of lips but only very slightly! ^^ Barely noticeble & just by pressing your lips together, it goes~
Now, it really moisturises you lips but it tends to lift up any flakiness you may have on your lips:-
So best to scrub your lips beforehand!
I mentioned before that when this lipstick fades off, it leaves a tint:-
Just a natural healthy pink! ❤If you notice in the 'bare lips' photo, my lips look like they are ready to chap & flake right?（ ；´Д｀）
But as soon as I wiped off the lipstick, my lips look & really felt moisturised & treated!
The camellia oil really softens my lips up~ (´ ▽ ` )ﾉ❤
. . .
I love to use this lipstick with a pink lipstick!~
I've said many times on this blog about my lips being very full & pink & nude colours make them horribly bigger. So I wear a red or orange colour with light pink or BB cream on the outer edge of my lips for a gradation style. That how I can kinda pull of really light lipsticks!
I use the Innisfree Colour Glow lipstick with a Colour Unlimited Lip Crayon in pink. I was given a set of them from my best friend Gracie as a christmas gift!~ You can find them in UK Superdrug gift sections~❤
I blended both colours together for a rosy pink shade that is packed full of moisture!~❤
I concentrated applying Innisfree's lipstick in the center of lips & C-Unlimited on the outer lip~
This colour is surprisingly wearable on my full lips!~
I really adore this lipstick!~❤
The colour is very vibrant & pretty though not very true to the bullet. The colour can be varied to suit your look~ It has a addicting formula & melts on your lips with a very moisturising non-sticky gloss - kissable lips! chuuuu~ (○´∀｀○) ❤It softens & treats my lips too.
However the gloss makes the lipstick transfer very easy & move across you lips especially if you
drink.. say, two cups of tea within two hours & eat as well. The colour can be disturbed.
The longest time this lipstick lasted for me in full red lips is about 4hrs with eating a apple & drinking a can of coke. After eating & drinking those, it was practically gone but left a pleasant pink tint.
Also the lipstick can lift up flaky skin - ew ^ ^;;
The tube packaging of the lipstick is easily travel-safe & is quite sturdy. It's a matte tube so it can get dirty (I'm very picky about that!) I love that there is a metal casing around the bullet as it protect the lipstick from breaking!
The bullet is a peculiar round shape rather than a traditional point & for me helps apply the lipstick more easily BUT because it is rounded, you can sharpen & neaten the edges of your lips so your lip edges look blurry.
This lipstick is a joy to use & have & being my first Innisfree lip product that I turned out to love! Is very worth my money~❤
. . .
Pretty & sophisticated packaging❤ - good cause as its recycle paper & can be recycled & printed with soy ink.
Tube is sturdy & pretty too! - travel friendly❤

The bullet can make lip edges look blurry.
Some people may not like glossy lips.
