DHC is a Japanese brand better known for their skincare. However, as my review of their foundation from last August shows (OMG almost a year ago), they also have a make up range. I was recently sent one of their lipsticks to try out and I was excited to give it a go after reading it's description. You can buy this lipstick for £13 on the DHC website.
It has no scent to it which is a shame because a fruity smell would have made it perfect for me. Having said that, this is probably better because scents are very personal and you're less likely to annoy anybody.
Now, although I don't know exactly what micronised pigments are, as you can see in the photo, my lips do like quite full. I should add I don't have any problems in that department anyway but I do think the satin finish does help. I can't see any shimmer on my lips at first glance but after staring at them for a long time, I think their must be something to that effect which creates that plumped look. The ingredients include olive oil and vitamin A which helps to give it a balmy feel on the lips. In terms of longevity, I have been fasting this month so without eating and drinking it has lasted a decent few hours. However, we all know eating and drinking is the real test.
Overall, I think this offering by DHC is fantastic. They only have 6 shades in the range but they look fab. Will you be giving this a go?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
