[SWATCHES & REVIEW] : IDR 30.000-priced Indonesian Local Matte Lipcream

Hello gorgeous, back here again with JennTan! Well, how's your new year? I wanna greet you guys with happy new year, hope there will be more blessings and happiness for us this year. Of course, a lot of fun playing with makeup, skincare, and fashion waiting for us!
My first post in 2018 will be reviewing an Indonesian local matte lip cream by QL Cosmetic. Before, I already write a review about their eyebrow cream, if you vane't read them you can read it here. They definitely have a good quality on affordable price for the eyebrow cream. So how about this time, will the same thing happen? Do they have a good quality on a IDR 30.000-priced lip cream? Read this article for more fun!

QL Cosmetic have eight shades of their matte lip cream, and here I have all eight with me! Super fun, and super excited since the color-base itself are different. Here are the shades :
Pink Based Color
21 Peach Angel - pink with a hint of peach
This color (and the shade name) confused me a bit. They named this as peach angel, but hey where's the peach color? All I get here is pink, no peach. 

Well, I gave it another try and look what I get! I get this pink lip by one swipe of the lip cream, but then I tried different method (Put some color onto my lips and then do some pat pat onto it) and voila! I really get the peach colored lips! Super in love and yet having fun cracking this puzzle of "peach angel" :p

22 Pink Me - darker tone of pink without touch of peach

Nude Based Color
24 Nudy Classic - nude with hint of red

25 Nude Brown - nude with hint of brown

Red Based Color
26 Flaming Rose - red with touch of orange

27 Exotic Red - light red without touch of orange

Purple / Berry Based Color
28 Apple Berry - purple with hint of red

29 Sugar Plum - purple with hint of pink

The Packaging

It looks sturdy, it feels like real glass when I knocked the bottle. I can even feel the thickness of the bottle (which means very good-the bottle won't break that easily). The one that makes me think of, is the ingredients that attached to the plastic wrapping the bottle (which will be dispatched right after we opened the bottle, right? Well that was just my concern, I love everything written well and can be seen everytime I want to see them. While talking about the packaging, let's talk about the applicator. I love the applicator, how smooth it feels on my lips, the flexibility, and also the length. It's not too short but not too long, such a perfect applicator! Easy peasy to create a smooth perfect lip.

Isododecane, Neopentyl glycol diheptanoate, Hydrogenated polyisobutene, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Ricinus communis seed oil, Aluminium starch, Octenylsuccinate, Silica, Glyceryl behenate / Eicosadioate, Silica dimethyl silylate, Hydrogenated polycyclopentadiene, Jojoba esters, Helianthus annuus seed wax, Tocopheryl acetate, Mica, Titanium dioxide, Polyethylane, Phenoxyethanol, Copernicia cerifera wax, Methylparaben, Parfum, Propylparaben, Acacia decurrens flower wax, Polyglycerin-3, Tocopherol, Tin oxide.

Texture and Pigmentation

Once I swatch the QL Matte Lip Cream onto my hands, I can feel how watery it is. I love watery texture for lip cream, it means it's not a dead-matte lip cream. It will run smoothly onto our lips, and of course create a good color. No need to worry about cracking and stuff, this local lip cream, will not make your lips looks cracking. Even though it feels watery, they also have high level pigmentation. All those above swatches on my lips, I'm only using one swipe to get those great pigmentation. They're crazily pigmented, even after eating some oily food (like chinese food, sambal matah, etc) they still stain onto my lips! Will create a beautiful natural look on our lips, right? No worry about hassle of lip cream after eating. 

After all, I can say that I really love this local lip cream. It's totally worth to buy, all eight shades. You & I (Cieeeee One direction lol) can wear this wherever we want, whenever we want. The nudes are best for daily use, as for the bold ones for special occasions. And here's what I love, I became the "superstar of the day" at my office while using the apple berry shade to work (sorry can't share picture because I'm wearing uniform) but my office-mattes and even my boss asked where did I get that beautiful color, since she never once see this kind of color. And even better, it only cost less than IDR 40.000! Zhen bang! 
FYI, this product's not only wearable for lips! I even have some "experiment" with this local lip cream, and guess what I found? I can also use this lip cream by QL cosmetic for eyeshadow base (it is powdery and that's why they'll look good as eyeshadow and base) and also for blush on! My love, now I can have some free space in my bag while traveling. One thing for my whole face. Also, I love to create ombre lips using these colors. Should I make a full face makeup tutorial using QL cosmetic?
