I first read about the Kailijumei Flower Jelly lipsticks in an article that went viral from Cosmo. They are super pretty and clear with flecks of gold and a small flower at the base of the lipstick. I was instantly intrigued and knew I just had to try them!
You can find several sellers on Amazon that stock this product. Depending on the seller, I’ve seen these range from $23 for one tube to $32 for 4 tubes, so if you decide to pick one up, do shop around to find the best price!
These are really pretty to look at, and they come in a neat red chrome tube. I bought the Flame Red, Dream Purple, and Barbie Doll shades. Now, these lipsticks are supposed to adjust to the perfect shade of whichever color you buy, but honestly they all look EXACTLY the same: a medium pink that leaves a sheer stain on the lips. I tried to swatch them on my hand, but it just wouldn’t photograph right. It basically looks like a your-lips-but-better shade of pink that has a great lasting power! Personally, I love this shade of pink, although it’s kind of disappointing that the red and purple also look pink.
The finish on this product is a semi-matte. It’s not drying, but it also will not moisturize the lips at all. The color is more of a tint than an opaque shade, but I think I’m going to really like it for more natural-looking days! I’ve worn it a few times now, and I’m happy with it, but I don’t think this product is for everyone. Those who are looking for something noticeably pigmented (which I think most people look for in a lipstick) will probably be disappointed. The bottom line is that this product is more of a novelty than anything. It’s not great as a lipstick unless you’re looking for something really sheer and you don’t need an added kick of moisture. Ultimately, this was fun to try, and I’m definitely going to keep one of the tubes I bought, but it’s just an okay product.
What do you think? Have you bought any interesting novelty products lately?
Thanks for reading!
