Fall Liquid Lippies

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Here comes the beginning of a new season. Like for real, Summer is over and it's time to say goodbye to my bright red and coral-toned hues lippies as I just purchased these babies to swipe on this Fall season.

 TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick and
Rollover Reaction Sueded Lip & Cheek Cream.

Ok, let's get into TheBalm first, it actually comes in 12 different shades and is described as long-wearing formula that has a comfortable matte finish. Meanwhile, Rollover Reaction is stated as two-in-one lip colour that doubles as a blush with velvet finish. Just recently they launched three new shades, which are all perfect for the Fall season seriously.

Onto the description as per usual.

The actual products.

I've heard lots of positive reviews on TheBalm's products, from their well-known blusher, bronzer, and highlighter kits to lip products. Long story short, I finally gave in and searched all over the Internet to find a trustworthy online reseller. Btw, we have the offline store in Jakarta, also Sephora Indonesia sells it online, but the price is outrageously more expensive, so bye. I was scared too that I'd get fake products (you know how tricky online shopping is), thus I devoted more time to investigate until I found an article that helped me to distinguish between the real and fake products. 

Whereas, Rollover Reaction is a local brand that's been selling out really well. Despite the heavy demand, I managed to land their products. My shopping experience was easy-peasy, the shipping was fast as it only took a day, and the package came in a very adorable pink box. Now... Let me reveal the initial local lip product that I wanted so badly. It was called Lip Coat that was created by a renowned Indonesian beauty blogger, Lizzie Parra. But... All of the shades that I've been eyeing sold like hotcakes. Reseller price is so much higher, ugh these opportunists, it's utterly disgusting how they make extra money! I'm not going to spend a single cent on their business. End of story.

I think both shades flatter my skin tones differently. However particularly, I've received quite compliments every time I wear Moss. Performance wise, I kind of dislike Rollover Reaction's wand and patchy texture as I couldn't do my entire lips in just one pass. It might be because their formula isn't as lightweight as TheBalm, thus making the application a little hard to control. For Rollover Reaction, the finish falls somewhere between matte and creamy, while TheBalm dries down matte within seconds. Longevity wise, I couldn't be more content they last longer than my expectation. Even after my lunch, these lip colors are still pigmented! Now to the scent of it; both of these product have the similar sweet kind of smell. I think a mint chocolate ice cream really represents TheBalm's scent, whereas Rollover Reaction smells like a vanilla cupcake. 

In conclusion, as much as I wanted to shop just one more lip color, I've been so happy with these lippies and convinced myself that I'd NOT need another one throughout the season.

  1. Great falls shades, I especially love Moss!

  3. It's nice that you're set with your fall lip colors. Both shades are really pretty and they also both give off a very different type of look. I did get two new fall lippies from Armani Beauty and NARS and I think they will tie me over for the season :)

  4. That's a shame about the resell prices! I'm glad you refuse to pay that much! I love the Moss and I think that color is totally worth it despite the wand not being great.


  5. Great fall colors! I mostly stick with nudes and light pinks for lip color, I need to branch out more!

  9. These sound awesome! I've been obsessed with the Stila one but might branch out!

  10. Ahhh such a fan of these shades! I was trying to think of which one was my fav but honestly for fall berry and a brown tone are both essentials! Putting these both on my wishlist!

  11. These shades really are both lovely on you, but I think I'd have to agree with everyone who has been complimenting you on the Moss color. It really is absolutely perfect on you!

  12. Oh, I like the colours! Nice posting <3

  13. OMG being a complete Liquid Lipstick addict, how have I not heard of the Rollover Reaction Brand, the Shade Moss is so me!!


  14. Both are really beautiful colors! I have heard great things about the balm's matte lipsticks, I'll def need to try one during their next sale. I've never heard of rollover reaction before but it's awesome that you're supporting a local brand :D Even if it isn't as great of a formula as the balm at least it still looks good :)

  15. Love the look of both these lippies - I can see why you get compliments on the moss shade, it's very autumnal and the brown tone seems to be super popular at the moment. Charming is lovely as well - it's a great transition to the cooler months.

  16. Charming is a gorgeous A&W colour! I love theBalm products, but I still haven't tried any of their lip products, I should really change that :) I like my berries this time of year :)

  17. I love it the both shades but Charming is an absolutely wonderful color.


    I want invite you to my Velvet Ink Giveaway!

  18. Both are lovely shades, but I really like the look of 'Charming'! The Balm is kinda expensive outside the States, but here in Canada we have a few stores that sell them at quite the markup too. Rollover Reaction is a brand that's new to me--I'll have to check them out!

  19. woow what colours! ♥

  20. These are beautiful, and such perfect colors for fall! I always tend to gravitate towards darker, almost burgundy colors for this season.

  28. Those colors tho! <3
    I heard good things about both products, nice review!

  29. 2 warna itu mirip sama punya Emina yaa? Shade Flamingo sama Chocolava 😊


    1. Yah belum cobain yg Emina jadi aku nggak bisa bandingin huhu..

  30. They look so pretty on you! Anyway, I wonder why the RR named it with the word 'cheek' too? Is it supposed to be a blusher too? ^^; Hahahha. And choco mint ice cream ?????? I'll lick it. xD
    Anw I think you misspelled the 'listick' part. :D


    1. I think so, but I've never tried it on my cheek, the texture feels somewhat wrong for a cream blusher hahaha.. Thank you for noticing it, didn't realize that typo before x_x

  31. aku ngeeliat swatch yang the balm shade charming itu kayaknya bakal kurang cocok di aku deh, kulitku kuning langsat dan entah aku ngerasa kurang cocok aja pake lipen warna begitu. by the way aku udah follow kamu, boleh minta folbacknya? thankyou!
