I’ve never had much luck with Nichido Lipsticks, although I must admit that I wasn’t really able to try a lot from the said brand. But based on my previous experience with their matte lipsticks (click here to read my 2012 ‘Miss’ List), I’m just not comfortable trying/buying anything from their line of lip products. However, I found out recently that they have a new line called ‘High Definition Lipsticks’ and I was pretty intrigued. Despite my hesitation, I must admit, due to the shade, this was more of an impulse-buy. Here are some basics about the lip product.
|Product Name –||Nichido High Definition Lipstick|
|Shade –||Fetish Pink|
|Price –||Approximately PhP 198|
|Weight –||4 grams|
|Availability –||All major drugstores & department stores nationwide|
The product comes in a sleek, glossy, black tube with their brand name embossed all over it. It also has a gold accent in the middle that I believe, ties the whole packaging together. The cap basically tells you the color of your lip product, as well as the bottom which clearly states the lip product’s name. Per the sales rep, the shade indicator detaches and can be used as a lip gloss should you wish to add a bit of shine to your lip color.
As for the main lipstick itself, as mentioned, the reason that I purchased this mainly was because of the shade. I really liked how the color looks like from the tube, and when swatched, let’s just say that, what you see is what you get. It has a semi-matte finish that comes with a lip gloss if you want an extra shine to your entire look. What I like about this product is that it’s really pigmented and creamy. You don’t need to apply multiple layers of it in your lips just to get the color that you see in the tube. It has a good color pay-off, pretty opaque and as mentioned, really creamy. Based on my experience, the lipstick lasted for more than six (6) hours on my lips with out retouching. With regard to application, it glides on smoothly with or without lip balm applied as a primer.
Now here’s what I’m not exactly crazy about regarding this product… It made every line on my lips visible, I was horrified. The first time I bought it, I was so excited to apply it, I didn’t bother to exfoliate, I just primed my lips with an EOS lip balm, and then I applied this. I was stunned. The fact that I was wearing braces in my lower teeth made it even worse because it emphasized that I have “poutier” (lol, forgive me for saying that, dunno how else to say it :P). I know that my lips ain’t flawless, but man! That was something I didn’t expect too see out of a pretty color, lol. Anyway, I might be over reacting, and I thought I was too, so I re-applied it the day after that. This time, I exfoliated, and applied loads of lip balm prior to that. Same effect, only less cracks visible.
I’ve read somewhere that in order for the lines of your lips not to be as visible, you can apply a primer, a foundation then a concealer. Wow! that’s a hefty amount of product. And yeah, for the sake of experimenting I did try it. I skipped the foundation, though. I went straight to concealer. Yup, you guessed it right! (or maybe you didn’t. Kidding!) Same result. I wont be doing that again, lol. I didn’t like the feeling, and there are tons of lipsticks out there that didn’t give me this much trouble.
I’m sorry I can’t provide you a close-up of my lips, I just can’t take the chance because it might look like those pics that you see in your doctor’s office, lol. Kidding aside, here’s just a photo of me, wearing the said lipstick. You can zoom it if you like, though I doubt you’ll see what it really looks like upclose. Lol
Sorry if it’s blurry, my digicam sucks!
If you want this lipstick, and this shade as well, then my advice is that you need to exfoliate, and apply loads of lip lip balm as a primer so you can hide the lines, cracks, etc of your lips. That is unless you have flawless lips, then I rest my case.
So to summarize, here are my thoughts about the said lipstick:
| Sleek, Glossy, Sturdy packaging
Affordable at only PhP 198 (Approx.)
Comes with a lip gloss already
Great color pay-off
What you see is what you get
Glides on smoothly
Available at all leading drugstores & dept stores nationwide
| Makes every line on your lips really visible
Settles on the fine lines of your lips
Stubborn to remove
Overall, I am really disappointed in this product. I really wish I can make it work because I love the shade so much, these are the colors that I usually gravitate towards when I buy new lip products. However, it just didn’t work for me.
Although I’ve been hearing a lot of positive reviews about their ‘Glam Red’ shade. But I’ll take it under advisement, lol
Those are my two cents about the said lip product. I just wanna say that just because some products doesn’t work out on me, it wont work for you. Chances are, it just might be the opposite. Not because I had a bad experience in this product you’ll end up not giving this product a try even though you’re already planning to buy it. Take a chance, I did. Just so happens that I’m not that lucky with this one lol. Who knows? I might end up loving my next impulse-buy!
