Review*: MeMeMe Long Wear Satin Lip Cream, Chara Tuscan Red

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

Hello ladies, 
today I'm back with a review on the second MeMeMe product that I got.
If you haven't seen it yet, I reviewed their Flawless Finish Cream Foundation on Friday.

Pozdravljene punce, 
danes se vračam z oceno drugega izdelka, ki sem ga prejela od podjetja MeMeMe v sodelovanju z Mojo Drogerijo.

I was very excited when I saw a lipstick in the package, since I absolutely love lipsticks and own one too many.
Unfortunately, a very similar thing happened with this lipstick as it did with the foundation; the shade doesn't suit me at all.

Ker sem velika ljubiteljica šmink sem se ob pogledu na vsebino paketa zelo razveselila, žal pa se je zgodila podobna zgodba kot z njihovo tekočo podlago; odtenek šminke ne izgleda dobro na moji polti. 

First thing I would like to point out, is the stunning box it comes in. I seriously think this is one of the pretties packaged lipsticks, just look at all those details. I really love the added thoughtful things like the saying about Chara, it just makes me feel like the brand really put a lot of work into it.

Prva stvar, ki sem jo sicer opazila je bilo čudovito pakiranje. Škatlica v kateri se šminka nahaja je izdelana z veliko pozornosti in vsebuje številne malenkosti, ki jo naredijo še toliko bolj posebno. 

The packaging of the lipstick itself is also pretty; a classic matte lipstick bullet. 
These Long Wear Satin Lip Creams are supposedly long-lasting and enriched with Shea Butter & Vitamin E.
I can definitely see how they would be enriched with Shea Butter because the lipstick is very creamy, soft and smooth. To the point where you have to be extremely careful with the application otherwise you can easily get a streaky application or end up looking like Miranda Sings. 
The lipstick is also nicely pigmented, I applied two coats to get a full opacity and an even application. It's not completely matte, but it's also not extremely glossy, I would say it has a creamy or a satin finish.
Although this is so creamy I haven't noticed any bleeding, but I would pair this certain shade with a lip liner in the future.
The smell of this lipsticks reminds me of MAC ones, it's maybe even slightly sweeter. I really like that.
I absolutely love how this feels on the lips, it's almost like wearing a lip balm; extremely soft, nourishing and even though this is a very vibrant shade, I hadn't had a feeling like I'm wearing it. 
As far as its longevity, I wouldn't say it's the most long-lasting lipstick I've tried. It transfers easily, doesn't survive eating or drinking, but you are left with a noticeable stain (I'm not sure if this is the same with more neutral shades).

Long Wear Satin Lip Creams naj bi bile dolgo obstojne, obogatene pa naj bi bile tudi z shea maslom in vitaminom E.
To se vsekakor lahko opazi, saj je šminka ekstremno mehka in kremasta, kar posledično pomeni, da moramo biti dokaj pozorne pri samem nanosu. Je tudi lepo pigmentirana, sama sem potrebovala dva nanosa, da sem dosegla želen izgled in enakomeren nanos.
Šminka ima sladkast vonj, ki me spominja na MAC šminke, kar mi je tudi zelo všeč.
Najbolj pa me je presenetil občutek ob nanosu šminke, ki me spominja kar na nošenje balzama. Je zelo vlažilna, in kar hitro sem pozabila, da na ustnicah nosim tako živ odtenek.
Osebno ne bi trdila, da je ta šminka zelo dolgo obstojna, ob stiku s hrano in pijačo se bo kar hitro prenesla na kozarec, ker pa je odtenek tako izrazit, vam na ustnicah pusti viden ''stain''.

Now I few words on the shade itself.
I got the shade Chara Tuscan Red and at first I was very excited since the colour looks like a coral pink shade on the box.
When I opened the lipstick tube I saw that wasn't the case. The shade is a very vibrant orange shade with a hint of coral in it.  
It also has extremely tiny golden specks of shimmer in it, that are visible when the light hits it (you can see it on the top photo that is taken with flash).
It's also one of those shades that don't make your teeth look yellow, which is always great. It's also one of those shades my camera doesn't want to pick up, as it looks a lot more orange on me in real life than it does on the photos above.
Unfortunately orange shades don't suit my skin tone at all. I did notice that I can make it work if I apply a very thin layer and blend it out with my fingers. That way I get a more coral-pinky shade with the help of my natural lip colour, but to be honest I can't see myself doing that on a regular basis.
I'll give it another chance in the Summer, when I get more tanned, or I will pass it on to my Mum since she looks stunning in shades like this and she'll get a lot of use out of it.

Na koncu bi dodala še par besed o samem odtenku. Na embalaži izgleda Chara Tuscan Red kot koralno roza odtenek, v sami tubi in na mojih ustnicah pa izgleda kot živo oranžen odtenek. Žal je ta odtenek eden izmed tistih, ki jih moj fotoaparat ne zajame v čisto pravi barvi, saj na mojih ustnicah v resnici ta odtenek izgleda veliko bolj oranžno kot na fotografijah zgoraj.
 Vsebuje tudi ekstremno majhne zlate bleščice, ki najbolje pridejo do izraza na direktni svetlobi. Pozitivna stvar odtenka je, da ni eden izmed tistih, ki porumenijo zobe.
Na žalost se oranžni odtenki enostavno ne razumejo z barvo moje polti, zato bo najverjetneje ta šminka poiskala svoj novi dom pri moji mami, ki v oranžnih šminkah izgleda super. Ji bom pa poleti, ko bo moj obraz dobil malo barve, ponudila še eno priložnost.

You can choose from 10 different shades on the MeMeMe site and they retail for £8.50
Slovenske bralke pa lahko na Moji Drogeriji izbirate med 9 odtenki za katerega boste odštele 13,67€.

I again, really like the formula, finish and the feel of this lipstick, but the shade itself is sadly not my cup of tea.
Sama formula, finiš ter občutek te šminke na ustnicah so mi zelo všeč, a se na žalost ne razumem s samim odtenkom. 

Have you tried these lipsticks yet? What shade would you recommend?

  3. Jaz moram priznati, da mi je tale odtenek noro lep, bi pa na meni tudi verjetneje lepše izgledal poleti, ko potemnim. Super ocena. :)

    1. Jaz se pa ponavadi izogibam takšnih odtenkov, ker res ne izgledajo dobro na meni. Bomo videli kako bo poleti :)
