Today’s post is about my recent favourite matte lipsticks from a brand called “Meilin”. Many of you may not be familiar with this brand. I know Meilin as a brand from say 7-8 years now. My first concealer was from Meilin and I still did not manage to finish it inspite of using it daily. Well, now that it’s already expired, I can’t even think of using it again and I have several other concealers to finish. Coming back to Meilin Waterproof No Transfer lipsticks, I heard nice things about this lipstick from few people. I decided that I’ll go to Beautiful store in Andheri and check out this brand. Since then it was always on my wishlist. One day I was near Beautiful store so I quickly bought 2 shades and left the store. Also, the SA told me that most of the shades were out of stock. So I knew I would have to come again to the store. Fast forward to the lipsticks, I am so happy that I picked it up so much so that I asked my sister to get me more two shades from this brand. In total, I have 4 Meilin No transfer lipsticks, the shades are 897 Punch, N818 Rouge, 812 Brown Sugar and N815 Fuscous.
Meilin Non Transfer Lipstick – 4g * Meilin Blue Star Original waterproof Lipstick * After Application Leave 2 Minutes before Touching.
Price- The price varies from Rs.210 to Rs. 350 depending on the place of purchase. I got mine for Rs.210 from Beautiful store, Lokhandwala. Also available on Amazon & Flipkart.
Packaging- It comes in a sleek tube packaging which is cute and sturdy. The navy blue and gold packaging looks pretty similar to Faces pro matte lip crayons. The shade name and number is labelled below the lipstick. The gold print on the lipstick cover tend to fade off after a while.
Punch 897- This is a neonish kinda pink which is not so neon on the lips. It looks extremely pretty on the lips on application. This shade will look great on fair to medium skintone.
Rouge N818- This is a mauvish browns shade which looks absolutely beautiful. My favourite amongst all. This can be a nude for darker skintones. Will suit all skintones
Brown Sugar 812- This is a mixture of brick red and brown. Its such gorgeous color that will make your complexion glow especially if you are medium yellow skin tone. Again, this shade will suit everyone.
Fuscous N815- This is a grungy greyish brown shade for goth lovers. One of the unique shades I have seen. This shade will look great on dusky skintones.
My Experience with Meilin Waterproof No Transfer Lipstick-
Meilin lipsticks have a very mild scent which goes after few minutes of application. The fragrance is quite pleasant but if you have a sensitive nose you may not like it, it’s not a problem for me though. As soon as you apply you need to wait for 2 minutes for it settles down to matte after that it won’t budge and looks extremely matte. It has a soft matte formula which is way better than any liquid lipstick in the market. Why I love it? Its because it doesn’t dry out your lips like liquid lipsticks. If you are in a/c it may get in the fine lines of your lips but won’t crack them. On applying, the texture is smooth and buttery. It is highly pigmented and one swipe is enough but you may want to give it two swipes for full coverage. This lipstick covers the pigmentation of your lips. The staying power is just too good with eating or drinking it stays upto 7-8hrs. However, if you have oily food the lipstick fades away with the center of your lips. I think this is a common problem with all lipsticks. I want to mention that this lipstick is not completely transfer proof but I can say it is truly waterproof. I can’t get rid of the lipstick until I use an oil base makeup remover. It’s a A+ product for me as its extremely affordable. I mean if you ask me pick a MAC or buy 7 Meilin Lipsticks? I would happily pick up Meilin lipsticks for the better formula, shade, longetivity and budget friendly. This has become my go to lipsticks these days. I literally breathe with this lipstick on. One of the major con with them is the Availability, they always go out of stock. Don’t keep a favourite, you will never will able to get them all together. Not all shades are available online or even in store due to stocks running out.
