Clio Virgin Kiss Lipnicure Review

7:23 AM

Does your lipstick fade after a few hours? Are you tired of reapplying it? Do you wish to find something that doesn't come off easily and stays on even after eating? Well, I think I found just the right product for that! Here's the product that claims to be longer lasting than manicure, except that it's for your lips and not for your nails.
Manicure for the lips, Lipnicure!
Specially developed to provide long lasting effect and high intensity color for a flawless finish with a single touch upon lips.

Here's how the actual box looks like. It's black and the word Lipnicure is printed in the same color of the lipnicure that you got.
Clio's Virgin Kiss Lipnicure comes is 8 shades:
1. Trouble Peach
2. Nasty Pink
3. Crime Pink
4. Cynical Orange
5. Revenge Pink
6. Rumor Coral
7. Tension Red
8. Guilty Pink

I got #3 which is Crime Pink and #7 Tension Red.
I wouldn't blame you if you've mistaken this as nail polish because the packaging is similar to those. They probably chose it to live up to it's name "Lipnicure" (i wonder if they'll come up with something like eyenicure JK) and their tagline which is "longer lasting than manicure" I usually like products that has cute packaging but I must admit I can't help but like this too.
This is how the applicator looks like in front and side view. It looks like a normal applicator in the front but it has this slight curve  on the side. I find it easy to use the curve of the applicator in applying and spreading the Lipnicure in my lower lip. 
 Here's how it looks like on the lips.
this won't look good on dry lips. XD you need to exfoliate first and moisturize.
Tension Red is a really pretty red. It's prettier in real life imo!
Crime Pink isn't really pink but more of a peachy/coral with a hint of pink. It becomes more coral the more you layer it. Crime pink dries faster than Tension Red for some reason so my application is kinda messy. sorry. lol I kinda don't like the formula for Crime Pink, it dries faster and looks thicker when I layer it.
Both shades are more vibrant in real.
This contains Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil.
Now let's see if this product is true to its claims.
1. Smudge Test
It didn't budge. Not even a bit. Make sure that you wait for it to dry before trying to rub it. It's pretty much going to stay there once it's dried.
2. Waterproof Test
This also claims to be waterproof and IT IS. I tried to drink (like a lot) on a white mug just like what Dara did and it didn't leave a mark. 
3. Waterproof + Smudgeproof Test
I had running water over it and then rubbed it after that and as you can see in the photo it barely came off. I just did this to test the lasting power but it isn't really necessary right? Since you wouldn't really rub your lips that hard. XD

I LOVE LIPNICURE, especially Tension Red. 
But of course, this product isn't perfect. I find it really hard to remove. It's like you had your lips painted and you need to spend quite a good amount of time to get it removed. Imagine if you're tired and you just wanna sleep and you just want to remove all your make up as fast as you can, you wouldn't be able to do that if you use this. BUT the good thing is that after finally succeeding in getting it removed is that your lips will feel so soft as if you just exfoliated it. lol

Super duper long lasting (lol)
Dries fast
Smudge proof
water proof
doesn't leave lip marks
Matte Finish
Hard to remove (you should use the lipnicure remover)
Wish there were more shades
can't really think of any other cons atm XD

That's it. I recommend this if you want a lip product that it long lasting and doesn't leave any residue. Missha also has there version of this but I haven't tried it yet so I can't comment on which one is better. Anyway, I'm quite satisfied with this product. Thanks to Ibuybeauti for sending me this for me to try. :D If I'm not mistaken, Ibuybeauti is the first online shop that posted about this product. ^^

I checked Clio's website last night, maybe a lot of people complained on how hard it is to remove the lipnicure so it turns out they came up with a special remover. The Lipnicure Remover. Click HERE to see the other products, such as the remover, top coat, lip concealer, lip primer, etc.
