Mamonde drops a lippie collection perfect for acing the Korean ombré pout
Your new squeeze
Remember those days when Juicy Tubes from a certain French beauty brand were all the rage? Mamonde's latest lip invention is a redux of those classic glosses, except way upgraded with killer pigmentation, velvety textures, and a skincare element using rose water. A hybridised product that takes their bestselling Creamy Tint Color Balm (which is brand rep Park Shin Hye's personal go-to lippie), the new Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip is a deconstructed, ground-to-liquid version of a lipstick, cleverly packaged into a playful squeeze tube for easy application.
Besides boasting a moisture-rich formula and a silky smooth texture that packs high density colour pigments for one swipe coverage, the squeeze lippies are also made with Mamonde's propriety Cooling Grinding technology which liquefies freshly-made lipsticks via a simultaneous rapid cooling down and pressurisation process. The end result is a highly blendable lip colour, with shades appearing more vivid and dewy than its original solid state. And that bit about being infused with skincare? Well, 28 per cent of its formulation comprises of Damask rose water — the very same stuff found in Mamonde's signature Rose Water Toner. This extra boost in hydration helps to fill in fine lines on the lips, giving your pout that sought-after moisturised, plump look.
Pretty much the perfect combination where you get the long-wear staying power of traditional lipsticks and the glide-on texture of liquid lipsticks, the Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip hits that makeup sweet spot in more ways than one, allowing you to create a variety of lip looks anywhere from barely-there tint to bold sculpted lips. Its applicator tip dispenses just the right amount of product too, so you can build up the colour and the look you want without having to fuss with blotting or smearing things out with your ring finger. In fact, nailing the Korean ombré lip takes but three simple steps with this one product. All you have to do is squeeze, glide the colour onto the inner portion of your bottom and top lip, and then press your lips tight to achieve a natural gradient. Now you can K-pout with the best of 'em.
The Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip is available at Mamonde counters, the flagship boutique at Takashimaya, and online at Lazada, $18
