Elianto Brilliant Riche Lip Colour (06, Wild) Review

I wrote a product regret post of this exact product in a different shade (here) but that’s the beauty of makeup, different shades from a line of makeup may either work brilliantly or not at all! This is the matte liquid lipstick range from Elianto called the Brilliant Riche Lip Colour. They do come in several other shades and evidently some more successful than others (for me). This is the more successful one (for me at least).

It comes with a regular doe-foot applicator. The product isn't very runny or very thick. It has a liquid concealer kind of consistency.

I also did some hand swatches.

It dries completely matte but it does have very fine gold iridescence that does not show up until you press your lips together.

 

I hope the difference can be seen. The glitter adds just a beautiful tinge of sparkle on a matte red colour.

Description: It is a liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish. It is devoid of taste and scent, although, if sniffed closely, would smell a little chemically. The smell is neither overpowering nor does it linger. It is a gorgeous red colour with fine gold sparkles which adds iridescence.

Price: MYR 31.90 (not factoring in discounts and promotions).

Where to buy: Elianto stores nationwide and at http://www.elianto.biz/

 

Water and oil test.

 

Water does not have much of an effect on the product. It stays put.

With Vaseline, so anything that's oil based will cause the product to move.

Below is a gif image of me rubbing the lipstick and it doesn’t move. Definitely kiss proof!

Pros:

It is opaque and pigmented.

Long wearing.

It is budge proof and smudge proof, unless you’re eating oily food.

Comfortable on the lips.

The gold iridescence is absolutely gorgeous.

 

Cons:

Although comfortable on the lips, it does dry my lips out.

Liquid lipsticks are generally not easy to work with it so it has to be applied carefully because one could make a mess trying to correct a mistake i.e. not beginner friendly.

Lips need to be properly exfoliated because it tends to pick up on dry patches on the lips.

Will fade with eating especially oily food.

 

Rating:

7.9/10

It’s funny how one shade doesn’t work out and another does within the same line of products. In any case the colour is gorgeous. I did wear it for a recent stage play that required me to wear makeup and it was absolutely gorgeous!

Product Regret #1

We all have that one or more (or in my case, several more 😛 ) product that we bought with much anticipation and we try and try and try to make it work. The more we try, the more we get frustrated. We even try it on willing “victims” and still can’t make it work. That’s how this post took form and I have several more of these kind of posts coming.

Sigh, Elianto, I love you but not everything has been a hit with me. Today it is the Brilliant Riche Lip Colour which is Elianto’s line of liquid to matte lipsticks. I have the shade No5 (Bold) which is a bright pink colour. I have another one which I love (review will come soon) and before I get down to why it didn’t work for me let me show you pictures.

A swatch. Gorgeous isn't it? The colour is a little different here. The colour is similar to the colour in the previous picture of the applicator.

What’s good about it:

It is a gorgeous colour! The liquid dries to a complete matte finish which is smudge-proof and, as they claim it to be, kiss-proof too!

 

Why I didn’t like it:

It is so patchy and streaky on me that I just could not make it work. Every line, crack and dry patch on my lips was emphasized. I have tried single layer application; it is streaky with my lip color showing through. I have tried double swatches, it looked like I had paper stuck to my lips. I have tried swatching it slowly and spread it out and it still shows off the lines and cracks on my lips. I have tried exfoliating my lips before swatching, to no avail. When applied too thick a layer, it dries to look like I’ve had powdered doughnut. All in all, I just could not make it work. Hence why I decided not to wear it out, even during the recent stage play I was involved with. It is also why I chose not to write a review on it because I never could make it work for me in the first place.

Again, my disclaimer applies. This may work for you if you have smoother and less pigmentation on your lips.
