let me tell you a shocking secret: I'm not that typical lipstick girl. I think, the main reason is, that I'm not sure, which colour suits me. For this very reason, I've got only a handful of lipsticks. I bought my last one in june from p2, the house brand of the german grocery store DM.
p2 pure color lipsticks – product page
There are 15 colours available and the lipstick costs 1,95 €. I choose the 043 Pont Neuf, an soft pink with a nudish touch. The lipsticks contains 4,5 g and are free from perfume, paraben and PEG. Storage life: 24 month.
Promises of the producer:
- intensive colours
- ultra-light formula
- long lasting colour brilliance
- don't run into the lip wrinkles
- hyaluronic acid prevent from drying out
The lipstick comes in a silver, reflective package. The brand and name of the lipstick can be found on the cap, the colour on the bottom. The package leaves a good impression. Nothing seems to be loose or chattering.
I apply the first coat and remove the surplus product by pressing my lips on a tissue. After that, I powder my lips before I apply a second coat, where I remove the surplus product as well.
The lipstick is creamy and a bit gluey if you don't remove the surplus product. It lasts for about 4–5 hours, but the opacity is fading. It vanish from the inside to the outside and leaves an unlovely edge. It's not a huge problem with this colour. I'll see how it looks with a darker one. Sadly, my lips feel a bit dry in the evening and needs a balm.
- definitely the price
- the colour
- easy to apply
- lips are feeling dried out at the end of the day
- it's not as long-lasting as promised
For 1,95 €, you can go wrong with this lipstick and I can try different colours without wasting much money. Maybe I'll find the right for me. By this price, it's not so bitter that it's not as long-lasting as promised and that you must reapply the lipstick after a few hours. I like it and I'll definitely buy some other colours. *thumbsup*
You know how I look like. What do you think, which colour would suit me? What your favourite lipstick? High price or low price?
Love, Mel … xoxo
