“The idea is cute,” that was my first reaction when I saw this lipstick. The combination of the three colors in this product is really alluring and might probably appeal to those who are cute at heart.
What is it? #036COS Lip Bar/Trio Color Marble Lip is a high moisturizing trio color lipstick.
Availability & Price. It is available in Awesome Store, Omotesando, Japan for Japanese Yen ￥390 (tax not included). It may be also available on other Awesome Store branches.
Weight. It is 3.8 grams.
Ingredients. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ozokerite, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Beeswax, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, CI 45410, CI 15850, CI 19140, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate,
Container. The container is considered fair for the price. It is made of plastic and simple. It might not be a good idea to put this in your makeup pouch for it might open accidentally and cause a mess. A separate lipstick container will be a good solution if you’re planning to take out lipsticks with a container like this.
Scent & Taste. I thought that it has a fruity scent and flavor but it has a faint crayon-like scent, possibly due to beeswax, and it has no taste.
Texture. It is like a lip balm but oilier because it has ingredients that are oil-based.
Color. The color looks so natural in gradient and in full. It is the perfect shade for the color of the lips.
It is highly moisturizing good on a cold-weather where lips are prone to cracking. It also hides the cracks and flakes going around the lips.
Longevity. After 3 hours, I felt my inner lips are drying and cracking again.
Verdict. For its price, this lipstick is fair. It doesn’t last very long but it is perfect when you are going outside for a while and don’t want to do much makeup. This is good for cold weather.
