Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm #16 & #24 Swatches & Review – Jasmineitor & Korea

Hi there everybody! At this time’s put up’s title is a mouthful 😦 Gotta love Korean merchandise and their knack for naming their merchandise as quick essays! At this time I’ll (lastly) be drifting away from Etude Home and reviewing a unique model I’ve come to love rather a lot lately – Mamonde!


I’m unsure what led me to strive these, as the one merchandise from Mamonde I personal are two shadows (that I really like!). They had been by no means a model that basically stood out to me specifically as their product stands had been all the time fairly small on the Aritaum shops I went to previously. Nonetheless exploring at some point with my buddy we swatched a bunch of those lip crayons and fell in love!


These lip crayons are available a number of varieties – Common, Mild (extra of a tinted balm), Intense (semi-matte), and Intense Velvet (matte).


The again of the field claims that these colors are lipsticks, tints, and lip balms in a single for a “fashionable Three in 1 impact.”


One of many colors I picked up is #24, Bouquet Nudy, which is a part of the Intense line.


The packaging is sweet and durable, with a twisty cap on the finish that’s colored the identical because the crayon and used to twist up extra product.


I really like how smooth and strong the packaging is! It’s quite simple and fashionable trying, with a matte end.


The again lists the color info, in addition to an outline of the product.


I discover it very arduous to drag off nudes, and have disliked the entire ones I’ve tried up to now. Nonetheless I nonetheless are inclined to lean in direction of beige/dusty rose colors once I see them in shops and that’s why this one caught my eye sufficient to strive it out!


The product glides on the lips very simply, and is barely lighter than my pure lip color. I had initially performed the swatch after placing basis on my lips however it induced the product to clump and slide round messily so I like to recommend placing it on naked lips! As this color is sort of mild it requires some construct up, and for those who’re not cautious it tends to collect in cracks if in case you have dry lips like me. Nonetheless that is solely noticeable from up shut and I haven’t discovered it to be a lot of an issue. I like to make use of this color with intense eyes because it’s an ideal impartial color that goes with nearly each eye look.


The subsequent color is #16, Velvet Purple. This color was INSANELY fashionable in Korea in November/December because of it being a lowkey dupe for MAC Chili, which individuals thought Miss A’s Suzy wore on {a magazine} cowl (it turned out to be a unique lipstick!). It’s nonetheless tough to get in lots of locations! I had swatched this on the retailer and had deliberate to purchase it throughout a future sale earlier than discovering out in regards to the craze, however as quickly as I discovered I rushed to search out it worrying it’d be bought out earlier than I might get it!


It was bought out at Watson’s and Aritaum’s in all places, however I lastly managed to get my fingers on it! It’s a really distinctive brownish crimson that’s nothing like something I’ve in my assortment at the moment (which is basically saying one thing).


The simplest method to make use of these crayons is to swipe them on the within of your lips for a fast gradient impact which is how I’ve been utilizing this color essentially the most. It provides a stunning rosy tone that brightens up any look! One factor I like about these merchandise is that even for those who apply them on the within of your lips like this they have an inclination to not keep on with your enamel like different lipsticks do 🙂


I needed to edit this picture a LOT to get it to come back even near the unique color. It’s just like NARS Dolce Vita, if that helps to get a greater thought of the true color! It glides on like butter, though care is likely to be wanted on the edges for those who’re like me and have an uneven lip line. It’s so creamy and feels good and moisturizing on the lips. Not drying in any respect!

Comparability (Velvet Purple – Bouquet Nudy)

The arm swatch exhibits the true color of Velvet Purple a lot extra precisely than the lip swatch. I determine it’s one thing to do with the lighting I used 😦 With out the reflection from the ring mild you’ll be able to see that these dry matte.


If I needed to evaluate them I’d say that Velvet Purple is the much less drying, extra lengthy lasting of the 2. I don’t know if this has to do with it being a part of the “Intense Velvet” (newer, presumably reformulated) line or not, however I choose the true matte end of Velvet Purple over Bouquet Nudy’s end.


All in all I’m in LOVE with these lip crayons! I really like the feel and the way straightforward they’re to use and re-apply. I’ll positively maintain my eye on them and can in all probability find yourself selecting up extra sooner or later. At 8,000 KRW for 3.0g of product these are an ideal deal and I completely advocate them!

You’ll find these on Mamonde’s web site right here, and Velvet Purple is out there for worldwide delivery right here*.

I hope to have one thing much less makeup-related up quickly as I’ll be visiting a couple of fascinating locations round Seoul this week 🙂 Till subsequent time~
