Hopping on the bandwagon of metallic lip colours with the brand new Velvet Matte Metallic lippies from Palladio! No stranger Singapore's large selection of drugstore beauty products, Palladio hit the market last year and has since been a popular option not only because of the friendly price tag but because their botanical products are infused with vitamins. I've had friends recommending me some of their lip products but never got to try them until recently!
I haven't had a chance to try out all the colours but I must say they are actually pretty darn pigmented. I like Glided for its unique orange-bronze hues but my favourite of the lot has to be Lavish - a deep berry red with slight blue undertones. Personally, I think the metallic sheen is pretty subtle - which might be a hit or miss depending on which end of the spectrum you're on. If you're looking for loud and funky metallic lip colours, this wouldn't be a good option.
These lipsticks definitely don't have long lasting power and are not transfer-proof. After all, when it comes to liquid lip colours, I don't have high expectations of the lasting power. However, it took me quite a while to remove these swatches from my arm and I still have some stains that couldn't be removed, so I guess it doesn't fare that badly!
In a nutshell...
- High pigmentation
- A variety of colours available
- Pretty long lasting
- Very affordable at only SGD $11.90 a pop!
- A little streaky in terms of application, but a second layer will do the trick
- Not transfer-proof
- Metallic sheen is quite subtle
