On my makeup Lust list Vol 3

On my makeup Lust List Vol 3 | Indian Makeup & Beauty Blog


Lately i am drawn towards Korean makeup brands. Most of them have really cute, girly packaging that's one thing that made me fall for them. I decided to make a wish list as i planned to grab some beauties and Boy! I was bowled with the huge range, there is so much variety, such cute pieces and price tag.. oh so affordable!

So here's what i loved most, i have ordered a few products and am planning already to buy more once i get my first parcel.

Have a look at these beauties:

NYX Color Lip Balm CB11 Dankie Review, Pictures & Swatch


Hey Everyone,

I'll be reviewing this color lip balm from NYX cosmetics today, which i bought long back and somehow forget. For those of you who are unaware about these color lipbalms, these are a hybrid of a lip color and a balm which means they deliver decent color with all the goodness of a lip balm. The shade to be reviewed today is Dankie, Let's zoom in:

What Brand says:

Add color and moisturize to your lips in one application. When your lips crave hydration and you crave color, NYX Cosmetics new Color Lip Balm is the perfect option! Get the moisture, shine, and a sheer wash of color your lips desire while still looking natural.

Price:

Salt (CI 15850), D&C Red 28 Al Lake (CI 45410), D&C Red 7 Ca Lake (CI 15850), FD&C Yellow 5 Al.

Made in Taiwan

My experience with this color lip balm:

Packaging:

This has a little round, opaque, black color, retractable tube packaging with a pull to open cap that locks in properly everytime. The tube have a color coded band and all the important details are mentioned on the tube itself. Overall a simple and practical packaging!

Fragrance:

The balm have a sweet floral scents, which i am unable to judge what exactly it is. It's not too strong neither too light, it lingers on for some time.. i do have a sensitive nose but it's not very disturbing. I doubt, it'll liked by mass.

Color & Pigmentation:

Dankie appears as a soft nude beige shade in the tube. But on the lips it looks like a very light beige color with lots of white :/ that means it leaves a white cast on your lips..eeeks it does not appear nice, somehow Andrew Symonds ready to bowl.. comes to mind whenever i apply it on my lips lol( no offence).

The color pay off is quite impressive for a lip balm. It covers light lip pigmentation to a good extent in one coat, which can be build up little by layering but i really would not recommend adding any more layers as it may get cake-y.

Texture and Finish:

The lip balm is super creamy, thanks to mineral oil present in this. It applies evenly and smoothly. If you have chapped lips make sure to exfoliate first, no it does not dry them further but it does highlight them. Though the chapped skin gets softer but it accentuate that.

The lip balm has a very comfortable, light feel and delivers moisture lock, natural  finish with a slight sheen of a balm.

Lasting Stay:

The color lip balm is not very long lasting, as it's super creamy so transfers a lot. It lasted for about 2 hour on my lips, which i still think is a decent duration of a lip balm. The bad part is, it leaves a white cast behind on lips when it fades, which for obvious reason does not appear nice.

Quality & Quantity:

The quality is decent, value for money. Four gram of quantity will last really long as you don't really need to apply several layers for the color to show properly.

Pros:

1. Simple and practical packaging
2. A good hybrid for those who want something in between a lip color and balm
3. Delivers good color pay off for a lip balm that too in a shade as light as this
4. NYX is a cruelty free brand
5. even and smooth application
6. Comfortable, light feel and super creamy texture
7. Decent wear time
8. Good quality and enough quantity

Cons:

1. The fragrance may not be liked by everyone
2. Dankie is light beige color but it leaves a white cast on lips
3. It gets cakey if layered more than once
4. This shade would wash out most of the skin tone(common who wants a white cast on lips)
5. Leaves a white cast behind when fades

Overall Rate:

3.1/5

Verdict: Everything about this color lip balm is almost good, it's just that the color is not everyone's cup of tea. This particular shade will wash out most of the skin tones though you can layer it upon or under any other nude color. What i didn't liked about this, firstly it accentuate chapped lips and secondly when it fades, the lip balm leaves a white cast behind on lips!
But the formula and pigmentation is good for a lip balm. I would not really recommend this particular shade though would definitely suggest to try some other shades from the range.


I am looking forward to try other shades from this range though Dankie was a disappointment, in terms of shade.

Hope the review is helpful enough to decide on your purchase decision. Have you tried any other shades from the range, tell us if you have any favorites :)

See you next time..
Kisses
