Review: Golden Rose Vision Lipstick - Shade 12314:15
I promised you this review a very long time ago. It must have been somewhere in fall that I bought it and I think the season influenced my shade choice. This is a really nice and very affordable lipstick.
Lipstick comes in a plastic shiny black packaging and it's a bit flimsy and cheap feeling. It closes securely and so far it works fine. It has gold writing and small transparent part in the middle that let's you see the lipstick shade that is inside.
It costs only 3.10€ and in it is 4.2 grams of products.
Shade 123 is like a burnt orange shade. I would describe it as medium orange brown. It actually looks dark on me, but could be a nude shade for dark skin tones.
I asked the girl at the counter, which of their lipsticks are popular and she told me the matte ones as well as these Vision ones. Since my lips get really dry in fall and winter, I decided to go for Vision lipstick with Vitamin E.
It's creme finish and has a nice shine to it. Pigmentation is good and with one swipe you get a light wash of shade. The more coats you apply, the darker it looks.
Even though it's a creme finish, it's still very long lasting. I feel like with wear it gets a bit more semi matte and it almost drys on the lips and kind of creates a stain, which prolongs the wear of it.
I also like that it's very comfortable to wear. Yes, you feel it on the lips, but it's almost like a heavier lip balm and my lips never get dry with it.
The scent is somewhat strong and not fruity or sweet at all. I would say it's also not artificial, but I can't describe it. You don't smell it while wearing, so it's not a big deal.
I also compared it to my other lipstick shades and none of them could be a dupe for it. Avon 3D Plumping Lipstick in Cantaloupe comes closest to 123 shade, but it's lighter and a lot peachier.
I adore this shade so much. It's like the perfect colored brown for my skin tone, since it has that warm orange undertone. Some would call it a perfect fall shade, which I suppose it is, but it's also a nice colored twist on those 90s browns.
The packaging is a bit cheap, but the product itself is amazing. It's creamy, has a bit of shine, lasts really well and it's super comfortable on the lips. I couldn't have chosen better shade than 123, since it really suits my skin tone and even more my hair color. It's more of a darker shade on me and I love burnt orange tone of it. It's also so cheap. If only we would have this store near me. I would definitely get some more shades and maybe even tried some of their other lipstick ranges.
