For this week’s review, we’ll be bringing you a look at a super fun lip product! A few weeks back we did give you all a brief look at this product with the rest of its collection; but I couldn’t resist buying one for myself so we have a full rundown on if this product is one to get, or if it’s worth a pass! It’s non other than Holika Holika’s recent Gudetama Sanrio collaboration collection, and their Melting Lip Button!
Within the collection itself, there were two shades of the Melting Lip Button (RD01) Berry Marmalade; a beautiful cool toned red shade, and (OR02) Orange Marmalade; a fun vibrant orange shade. I decided to go with shade RD01, personally I tend not to wear orange tones so OR02 was out of the question for me, and whilst I’m not even a frequent red lipstick wearer I just had to get one!
To start off, I just have to say the packaging (like the whole collection they released featuring Gudetama) is absolutely incredible. For the lipsticks, you actually have a rubbery Gudetama mascot topper on the lipstick which you can remove, or keep on for an added cute effect. The bright yellow tube is also adorned with his face along the front. On the bottom of the product you have the clicking button, I found you only really need to press it once to get the product where it needs to be and it’ll prevent any accidents knocking it and damaging the lipstick- this type of applicator really makes it precise and easy to put the product on.
Moving onto the lipstick itself I have to say I’m really surprised with the colour pay-off! It’s incredibly pigmented so you can really get a great colour if you prefer bolder looks. But, due to its glossy finish, it’s incredibly easy to blend out into an ombré lip effect. The main ingredients themselves consist of argan oil, with vegetable seed extracts for colouring. These are all great for maintaining the condition and hydration of your lips, and the glossy texture will be great for preventing any cracking over the winter time. The only problem I can possibly find with the product is its lasting ability, but with the help of a similar toned lip liner this really shouldn’t be too much of a problem and you’ll only need minimal touch up’s throughout the day.
