Review: Elizabeth Helen Lipstick

Posted by Keiagasshi at 5:29 AM
Hello Everyone...

I think it's been a year since my last post.
It is not that I don't want to write anymore or left blogging, but there was so many things happened in my life at 2016.
I felt lost and didn't know what to do.
In a simple word, I was extremely unhappy at 2016.

Anyway, I'm back now.
I feel good and happier :).


So, today I want to review a lipstick from brand Elizabeth Helen.
Many of you (especially overseas reader) may have question, what is Elizabeth Helen? Where is this brand come from? and any other question that you have .

From information that I got in their webstite (http://elizabethhelen.co.id/):

Elizabeth Helen is produced by Saudi Perfume & Cosmetics Company (SPCCL) which is based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It is the largest company of its kind in the whole of the Middle East. Established in 1982, with fully integrated production facility for perfume and cosmetics.

To be honest, I just know if this brand is exist by last month when I order my first lipstick at berrybenka.
Before that, I never heard this brand before.

They have 3 kind of lipstick finish:
1. Matte
2. Glossy
3. Shimmer

I only have 2 lipstick from elizabeth helen, it has glossy and shimmer finish.

 

For the glossy finish I have no #26 and the shimmer one no #38.
They have so many lipstick shades, if I'm not mistaken it is around 60 shades.
And they doesn't use name for every shade, instead they using number.


lets start the review with this hand swatch: 

left: #26 ; right: #38

As you can see, both of this has a very pretty colour and pigmented.
I usually use 2 or 3 swatch to cover my whole lips.
Many glossy or shimmery lipstick has a little to no coverage in my lips, but this lipsticks are pigmented and does a good job.


I will show you lips swatch below:

2. Elizabeth Helen Glossy Lipstick no #26

Both of it have a very smooth finish in my lips.
Sometimes shimmery lipstick can be really patchy but this one is smooth.
And the shimmer in it is very fine, so still can be used as everyday lipstick.

No #38 is pinky and very girly lipstick shade.
I always think I look more girly and feminine when I used this one :p.
But this one is also can be turn very pale when I used this alone without any other make up.
So I usually used this one when I'm in full make up or else it will looks washed out.

No #26 is dark chocolate colour.
If you didn't like dark and bold lipstick, then this one is not for you.
I love dark and bold colour, so this lipstick shade is really calling my name..hehe.

The only negative things from this lipstick is that it have a very strong scent.
It is not the vanilla or caramel scent that we usually smell on other lipstick,but more of flowery or perfume scent.
You even can taste it after you applied it, even if it will fade after some times.
I was read some other blogger review and they wrote that this lipstick have a pleasant scent.
So yeah, it will be back into personal choices.
Personally, I prefer vanilla or cupcakes scent on my lipstick more than flowery scent.


For overall review, my opinion about this lipstick are:

Pro:
* Cheap, only cost me Rp 38k at Berrybenka and Rp 30K at watsons (Around USD 3).
* Easy to find, You can find it at watson or you can buy it online (many e-store sell this product)
* Pigmentation is great.


Contra:
* Have a strong flowery scent

Will I buy it again:
Maybe.
I will buy if it's on sale but will not purposely buy it since I didn't really like it scent.

Overall:
3/5
