Here's another review of a dark lipstick. There's just something about dark lipsticks that I'm really digging right now. Probably because it's already fall and the next thing you know, it's winter.
I went to Snoe Beauty's store at SM North EDSA and bought their bar soaps. The sales lady showed me their lipsticks and told me to check it out as they have really nice shades that I might like. They actually swatched a few of their best selling shades which were the lighter shades (light pink, nude, etc). What caught my eye though was Plum Crazy because it looks really dark from the tube.

I haven't been wearing full makeup in the office for several months now because I'm lazy. Haha. No excuses. I only put full makeup when I go on client calls or when I feel like putting on full makeup but I still end up not doing so because I'm too busy arguing with myself whether or not I will put makeup, haha! On a daily basis, I just apply foundation, concealer (for blemishes), setting powder and then shape my brows. At certain times, I contour my face, too. The photo above is how I usually look in the office sans the dark lipstick.
What I love about Plum Crazy is the fact that it gives life to my dull face. Well that's what most dark lipsticks do, right?! From the name itself, you'd know that the shade is in the color of purple and berry and something similar to that shade. One thing that surprised me about this lipstick though is the fact that it's sheer. It looks really dark on the tube! I was expecting this to be a dupe for MAC Rebel. Plum Crazy's formula reminds me of the Lustre lipsticks on MAC. However, Plum Crazy is buildable so with 2-3 swipes, you will be able to achieve the dark vampy color that you like.
- available locally
- buildable color
- has a wide variety of shades to choose from
- not drying on the lips
- layout of the box is really intriguing and enticing
- no weird scent
- expensive for a local lipstick at PhP399 per tube
- cheap packaging
- the tube is shorter than most lipsticks
- can be easily used up since the shade is buildable, you need to swipe more than once to get your desired opaque shade
- short staying power (it fades when you eat and makes your lips look like you only outlined it using a dark shade)
For the price, I think this is really expensive since this is a local product. But then again, all Snoe Beauty products are expensive. I like the fact that it keeps my lips moisturized. Although, I wish the staying power is longer than 3 hours. I was expecting this to give me a just bitten look on my lips when I ate. But what happened was that it looked like I only outlined my lips and the rest of my lips were just the normal color of my lips. If I was using a different shade, perhaps light pink or nude, I think it would have been fine since it won't look weird.
The shade is lighter than MAC Rebel but I still like it. I alternate this with Rebel, actually. I'm not sure if I'm going to repurchase when I finish the tube. If I do, I'll probably try another shade regardless if it's more expensive than other local brands. This lipstick still fares better than other local brand lipsticks.
Have you tried Snoe Beauty's Rouge Deluxe Lipstick? Any thoughts on this?
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
