I don't have a lot of local brand of lipsticks because I generally don't like them. The shade range is so-so. The quality is meh. You get the idea.
But I like Ever Bilena's matte lipsticks. Well, it's because they're matte. I'm partial to matte and satin lipsticks. I prefer them over moisturizing lipsticks most of the time because I just don't like the sticky feeling on my lips. Unless I'm using a gloss but that's a different story.
I have an officemate that also uses Ever Bilena lipsticks and she has about 5 lipsticks, I reckon. What intrigued me the most was Dusk.

It's a pretty brick red, don't you think?

after 4 hours
The staying power is not that long. But for a local brand, 4 hours would suffice. It easily disappears when you eat. As for the darker shades like Dusk, expect it to really define your lip lines. Heck, it even stayed on my lip lines! I bought this mainly for the shade because I'm really digging dark shades right now. Either it's really dark or really neutral.
For those who are on a budget, I recommend this lipstick. It may not stay on your lips for 8 hours straight but if you apply this in the morning, you can re-apply after lunch. So, it's not that obvious that it's staying power isn't that long! If I'm not mistaken, Ever Bilena's matter lipsticks have a range of 12 different shades. All the shades are beautiful! For PhP155 a pop, you wouldn't mind making this your everyday lipstick!
