Missha Glam Art Rouge is an existing lipstick in the Missha family, and the packaging has recently been updated with 20 new shades. This new lipstick is certainly more expensive than others in their range at £10 (I usually look to pay about £6 for a Korean branded lipstick from a mid end range. So it was a bit of a splash out!
The packaging looks and feels more high end than other ones in the range – it’s black and has a magnetic snap closure with a luxurious feel not dissimilar to Vidi Vici lipsticks. The shade range is pretty big and ranges from everything – nude beige to the deepest red. For some reason I was drawn to the brightest shade in the whole collection, PK03 Pink Chu Chu which is a blue based bright candy pink.
I guess what I wanted was a dupe for Nars Schiap a lipstick I adore but is too drying for my lips.
This Glam Art Rouge lipstick is super soft, creamy and pigmented. There’s a trend with Korean lipstick at the moment; mattes and lip oils so it’s nice to have something different. It’s VERY creamy. It is creamier than YSL Rouge Volupte which I almost find a little to creamy but isn’t as creamy as 3CE’s Creamy Lipstick (which I thought I reviewed but never did).
My point is; this lipstick is CREAMY and super opaque and pigmented. It can be worn sheer if you so wish.
This is from one light swipe:
I am going to be blunt and say, yes I like this lipstick – it does not disappoint at all on pigmentation. It is so soft I would not press to hard to carry it around in a warm pocket in case it fell apart.
The problem with this colour is that it’s too ‘creamy’. It’s almost milky toned. I wish it was more of a true blue clear pink because the creamy touch makes it a little bit too clowny if I am honest.
Blotted down it makes a nice stain. But I don’t want to wear this blotted. I want to wear it full coverage!
Still I like the lipstick but it’s pricey (for a Korean lipstick). I have ordered a nude colour and I will see if it fares better.
I bought mine from eBay for £10 (some retailers are selling it for £20, so do your research!).
