The first K-drama I’ve ever watched was Memories of the Alhambra on Netflix, starring Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin. I loved the lipstick Park Shin Hye was wearing throughout the series. Once they showed her applying makeup and I saw that it was Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense. Park Shin Hye is Mamonde’s endorser so it was not surprising.
She picks out the pink tube in the middle.
I decided I liked it hahahaha. The rest, as they say, is history.
Since Mamonde is not yet officially sold here in the Philippines, I turned to Shopee. I was able to find a seller who had it. I bought Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense in #25 Rosy Silk for P375. I don’t know what shade she used but based on the swatches online I decided this was the shade for me.
It actually looks like a crayon. Mamonde’s website describes it as a product with the intense color of lipstick and the creamy texture of a lip balm.
Here’s a comparison between this product and Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip. Note that Color Balm is matte whereas Squeeze Lip is glossy. I bought similar shades because when it comes to lip color I’m really more into rose shades. Don’t really like red, brown, and coral shades because I feel they all make me look old lol.
Here’s Mamode Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense on the lips under natural light. I love how pigmented it is.
It’s really intense even under artificial light.
What I like about Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense:
- It’s super pigmented! They weren’t exaggerating when they called this product intense.
- It glides on your lips like a dream.
- It’s pretty long lasting.
- If you blot it lightly with a tissue, it becomes MLBB (My Lips But Better) like how it looks on Park Shin Hye in Memories of the Alhambra.
- It’s not drying.
- There are 27 shades available.
Downside? There’s not a single online store which sells all the shades. I’m just happy I found a shade I like on Shopee.
This is currently my favorite lip color product and I’m planning to buy more shades.
