“My Love from Another Star“ is such a mega-hit korean drama! I really enjoyed watching Jeon Ji Hyun in all the drama she had acted in. Such a natural. She acted as Cheon Song Yi, an ultra vivacious and undeniably cute female character in the drama, which has caused quite a stir in my heart (and my pockets!!). How effortlessly is she when it comes to pulling off the looks of various shades & hues of lipsticks. In the drama, a few notable big brands were mentioned – Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick, Iope Water Fit Lipstick & YSL. BUT THEY WERE SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE!!!!! *Comfort to self: At least I managed to grab Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick in Twinkle Coral before the lipstick craze*
It’s so amazing how the look pulled off by an actress can trigger this desire in us to make a purchase decision, isn’t it? Only exceptional & flawless complexion like hers can pull off such vibrant & rich hues. *envious* I can’t help myself but to purchase IOPE Lipstick in #44 (Forever Pink). I wish that with this “goddess” lipstick, I will be able to channel the same girly and elegant vibe as her. :p
Let’s get down to the review of the lipstick!

I really really love IOPE Water Fit lipstick in shade 44 (Forever Pink)!!
MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE PINK LIPSTICK!!!
Have not came across any lipstick till date with a high level of moisture level and exudes such a pleasant scent. It gives off a beautiful pink sheen on your lips, making it oh-so-kissable, a “MY-LIPS-BUT-BETTER“ feel.
Color is very much buildable, depending on the number of layers you apply. However, one downside is that the staying power only lasted me till lunch time. By noon, the color faded. But it’s nothing much to complain about since it is not marketed as a lip tint.
Compared with the big beauty brands like YSL and Chanel, the price of the IOPE lipstick is a tad expensive. S$36 for IOPE lipstick seems to be too hefty a price tag. FYI, I never spend over S$25 for a “mainstream” lipstick. Other than the 2 downsides which I’ve listed, this lipstick is absolutely stunning. I’d definitely repurchase it, if I have additional bucks to spend. Go get it, I say!
Moisture Level: 5/5
Long-wearing power: 3/5
