SWATCHED: @seamacosmetics Plumper Matte Lipcream in the shade KAPALAI 👄🎀 An arm swatch of this shade as well as MABUL can be found a few posts back. The arm swatches are more true to colour so be sure to check them out if you haven't yet! 😉
LONGEVITY: Quite long lasting because it's pretty transfer resistant, so it doesn't transfer from the bottom lip to the top either. It won't budge if you're just drinking or snacking but most of the product in the centre of the lips will disappear after a proper meal.
LAYERING/REAPPLICATION: The product is quite buildable and the colour blends well but will feel heavy and cakey with more than two layers. It also blends well with earlier applications but reapplying the lipstick can make it feel and look crumbly, especially after food.
END RESULT: This lip plumping formula does make my lips appear naturally fuller and I think if you compare these lip swatches to my earlier ones, you can see the difference too. The product doesn't separate at my lip lines and doesn't sink into them either, which is great. The only real problem is that overall, it makes my lips look dehydrated. I tried applying the lipstick on my bare lips, on top of lip primer and also after I left lip balm on and wiped it off, but the product still looked dry and crumbly.
VERDICT: I would say these lipsticks live up to half its claims. These would probably look better if you have smoother lips but it didn't look the best on me 😅 I think they have a decent mix of nude and bold shades, and I also think they have a lot of potential to improve in terms of formula. I believe with time, @seamacosmetics can be another great local brand!
