REVIEW NEW SHADE Wardah Velvet Matte Lip Mousse • 13 Sweet Cinnamon

by - May 25, 2020

You’ve read my reviews, you know that I always use the excuse “I haven’t finished all of my lipsticks” so I don’t have to buy another one. That’s how it ideally is, but the fact is I still can’t hold myself to NOT buying a new, interesting lipstick! Wardah Velvet Lip Mousse isn’t a new product (I actually have THREE shades already), but the shade 13 Sweet Cinnamon is newly released. I initially wanted to buy the shade 09, but I ended up with this shade because I got cold feet. I think I subconsciously afraid that the shade 09 is too light on me and I ended up not using it. So, yeah, please keep on reading to find out how I feel about this shade!

P r i c e
IDR73,000 for 4g.

A medium-sized, matte-finished tube with the colour that matches the shade it presents. The design is minimal and doesn’t really look like the typical Wardah product. I kinda think it looks like a Korean product. It uses a doe-foot applicator.

S c e n t
A subtle sweet scent.

Just like the earlier shades, the coverage of this lip cream is excellent. It can cover the natural lip colour completely. The longevity is also great, but, of course, it fades once you have a meal. This shade turns to be a medium orangey brown with warm undertone colour on my skin tone.

T e x t u r e  &  F i n i s h
It has a mousse-like texture, just like its name. It looks like chocolate spread, only thinner and fluffier (if that makes sense). It feels airy, too. The finish is velvet matte.

C l a i m s
Comfortable and long-lasting • yes
It has a Comfort Matte finish, which is a matte finish but does not feel sticky and dry or makes lips look chapped • yes
Feels soft, light and moist on the lips • yes, but I’m not sure about it being moisturising

I’ve done a more detailed review of this product before, I suggest you read about the texture of this lipstick on that post instead. In this post, I’m going to talk more about the colour.

It’s a lightweight kind of lipstick. It doesn’t make the lips really dry, and the consequence of it is this product isn’t completely transfer-proof. It might get to the point where it’s almost entirely transfer-proof once it sets. It’s comfortable to use and has a nice finish either you use it full lips or make it soft blur. The colour, just like the issue with the earlier shades, doesn’t match the official swatches. It even looks different on camera and in real life. It appears nuder on me through the camera but looks medium warm orangey-brown in real life. This shade makes me think of another locally made lipstick, BLP Beauty Lip Coat in the shade Pumpkin Sorbet. Well, I don’t have the product, nor I ever tried it before, but it’s just how I feel. I tried comparing the two by searching the official swatch picture of the BLP lip cream, and I notice that Pumpkin Sorbet is way more vibrant.

This colour is very safe. I think people ranging from pale to dark skin might suit this colour. This shade may look similar to the shade 08 Brown Creator, but it actually is warmer. I personally like this kind of brown better. The price varies, depends on where you buy it. The price that I specify is the normal price, but you can get better price at local cosmetics shops since they usually put discounts on most of their goods.

By the way, back to the topic… I really recommend this lip cream! Besides the comfortable and easy to use texture, of course, it’s also because the colour is so cute. Actually, the new shades from this line are pretty much safe colours that people would love. But, just like the earlier shades, I suggest you read and/or watch many reviews with the swatch, so you know the actual colour before you decided to buy it. It would be even better if you go to the physical counter, but I don’t recommend it at this time with the whole pandemic going on.
