My time in Shanghai has come to an end and I'm back home. But that also means that I have my shooting gear back in hand for some bomb ass pictures ;). Sadly I couldn't buy that many makeup products because my luggage was so full from all my taobao shopping sprees. But I did pick up 2 Innisfree lipsticks during my stay in Shanghai to review for you guys!

These lipsticks are from the Real Fit Velvet range. I got them them at an Innisfree store located in Crystalleria mall at Jing'an Temple. But if you ever get the chance to visit Shanghai definitely go to the big Innisfree store located at Nanjing East Road. That one has the famous Innisfree Green cafe that is worth a visit! In Jing'an tho I picked up the colors #2 and #3.

Look and feel
They are very simple and sturdy looking, but it's made of plastic so they are more cheap looking. It's a good size to hold in your hand and because they are sturdy you can easily drop them without leaving a scratch. There's a hint of color at the bottom so you're not clueless about the lip color. Overall it's just a very basic and sturdy design.

The name suggests a velvet finish but it's definitely more leaning towards a moist finish. Especially when you apply lip balm before putting on lipstick, this effect will be amplified. The color is quite sheer so if you want a better color payoff you need to apply on several more coats for it to really show. 

How do I feel about this product?
My overall opinion about this product is that I don't hate it but I also don't love it. It's just a mweh product for me. Application goes very smoothly but sets into your lip lines. The finish is also streaky and more a moist finish rather than a velvety finish. It's not drying but for some reason the finish is everything it isn't supposed to be. The color payoff for #3 is also better than #2 but it isn't long-lasting. I think I reapplied my lipstick 3 times more than usual. In the end I wouldn't repurchase these lipsticks because it doesn't have anything that's good.

Have you tried these lipsticks out? Let me know what your opinion was!
