PRODUCT RATINGS

All product review will be based on Lippielust’s personal experiences and tryouts. All products will be tested first to rate all aspects needed. However, this method will take up to 1 month to make a clear picture of a product from the day the product is received by Lippielust’s team.
Please be advised that any opinions are solely owned by the Author. Read the full disclosure here.

LIPSTICK RATING — THE ASPECTS:

  • RELEVANCY (Relevancy of a product to the claim given) 1-10
  • FORMULA & TEXTURE (The formulation, texture, comfortability of a product) 1-10
  • LONGEVITY & PERFORMANCE (The overall performance of a product, including how long will a product stay on the lips / face) 1-10
  • PRICE (Based on Lippielust’s experience, Price is one of the most considerable factor to buy a product) 1-10
  • DESIGN (packaging and / or tube, and also the entire design of a product) 1-10

You will also see ‘The Goods’ and ‘The Bads’, as the overall visible strengths and weaknesses of a product.

Keep in mind that this rating system will be very personal. Assessments may be different for each individual.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • Swatches photos will be done for informational purposes only. Lipstick shades will be worn one by one to show the real experience (including colors, textures, and the like). The color shown on the model may not be similar to others, so we encourage our readers to read the shades’ description on each posts and compare to other swatchers.
  • Swatches photos are and will always be fairly edited. including Image Adjustments: brightness, contrast, sharpness, color correction, crop, rotate, etc. and Position Adjustment: However, Lippielust don’t do ‘template swatches’ / Digital Imaging (meaning swatches are digitally altered: same lips with lip color changed to match every shade). For catalogue purposes, Lippielust edits the lips’ edge to be more crisp to make the lips as the main focus.
  • Lippielust will not use any primer (oils, lip balms, etc) before the shoots to show the real texture and look on the lips.
