The Butterfly Project Christmas Beauty Box: Part One - Shizens Lip Tattoo Review

♫ Fall Out Boy - Centuries

Hello, my lovely peeps! Gosh, it's almost the end of January and here I am with my very first post of the year! Σ(゜ロ゜;)
I promise I will make up for the lack of updates with a whole bunch of posts before the month is over. *bows in apology* o;(_ _)o; Without further ado, let's see what I have to share with you today~

If you've noticed in the local beauty blogosphere lately, there have been many reviews of the Shizens Lip Tattoo. It was one of the items we received in The Butterfly Project's Christmas Beauty Box, and now I'm chipping in with my two cents about this product.

Shizens' best-selling Lip Tattoo
The Shizens Lip Tattoo is one of Shizens' most popular and best-selling products. I have always seen them promoting it at their outlets and also online, and it has received positive reviews from users (not only bloggers), which is a big thumbs-up in my book. It helps to add a spread of moisture to the lips and relieves the formation of fine lines. It helps to lighten dark pigmented lips and gradually turn them into natural pink or rosy tones.

What does the Shizens Lip Tattoo do?
Ingredients list
I promise you, the best thing about the Shizens Lip Tattoo is that it is perfect even for those who abhor makeup products. It keeps your lips moisturized without the balmy/sticky texture of lip balm/gloss, helps to lighten pigmented lips (either from frequent lipstick application or daily habits such as smoking), and gradually restores your lips' natural pinky rosy tone (no need for lip tints!). Besides that, it it also scentless and tasteless, and can act as a base for other lip products like lipstick, lip tints or lip gloss.

The Lip Tattoo comes with a doe-foot applicator
It's packaged like a regular lip gloss (or the now-popular liquid lipsticks) and comes with a standard doe-foot applicator. The product looks white in the tube, but applies as a clear layer with a glossy shine and slightly slippery texture, which turns into a pink or rosy hue depending on your natural lip colour. On me, it changes into a rosy shade due to my pigmented lips.

Swatch on hand
Lip swatches
However, after about an hour it tends to lose the shine and rosy tint, so you can either re-apply the lip tattoo or apply some lip balm on top.

Ever since the beginning of the year, I've greatly cut down on my makeup routine, so this lip tattoo has been a life(lip?)-saver for when I'm going out to run some errands, as it gives me natural-looking rosy lips. Add a few pats of my BB cushion, a swipe of blusher and I'm good to go. :)

Shizens Lip Tattoo retails at RM168 a tube and is available at all Shizens outlets and kiosks nationwide.

This is nice! It cuts out and eliminate the time to apply makeup. That's a plus for me. :)

Yes it does! Most days I just apply this and head out the door. Give a very nice and natural rosy tint to my lips. :)
