I am not a huge fan of Beige lipsticks on me but I still thought having a good nude lipstick will not hurt so when I saw this shade at Nature Republic, I decided to try it. It swatched a beige with pink undertones which I guessed would look good on me. It also looked creamy and matter which I thought would work for me. So read on to find out if it did!

This was my first beige lip crayon but definitely made me want to try out more lip crayons, chubby sticks, jumbo pencils etc. I got the orange shade and this shade at the same time I think and these had the same formula. They are creamy to apply but not very slick so they are comfortable to wear.
The packaging is quite simple and the plastic cap on top plus the twist-up-cap at the bottom show the color of the product which is always a plus in my opinion. The names are writen in Korean only so I am referring to these only by the number.
The scent is not very pleasant, at least to me as I dislike the crayon smell in my makeup. This is also something that I do not like about some of the L’Oreal Paris and Maybelline New York lipsticks. They have added fragrance to the product, as it is listed in the ingredient list but the scent is not chosen very well I guess. Anyway, it does not linger for long!
I did not really like this shade on me even though I really loved the orange shade! This particular lip crayon made my lips look dry because of the matte finish. I am usually into glossy, creamy or satin finish so matte finish actually ended up not working for me but that is not a ons of the product, it is just a personal preference.

These are not stains so they are not long-lasting. The lasting power is actually quite comparable to a lipstick. I am now more interested in trying this kind of lip products than ever even though I resisted so much until now. These are so travel-friendly, easy to apply and affordable!
