Lip Product Haul & Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick

Like I mentioned, I hauled lip products recently just because I want to. Haha! And I heard good reviews about these products from fellow bloggers. I actually have never tried and owned any product from these brands so I was excited to try them out.

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick
& Careline Lipglosses

I am not very sure but I think these two may be sister companies?! As I was looking at testers of the matte lipsticks, the testers of lipglosses were right beside Ever Bilena’s testers.

OT: I actually tried to make a vlog about this and finished recording it, but as I watched myself, I realized I’m still not ready to do vlogs. Haha!

Anyways, for this post, I want to talk about my new Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick which was actually recommended by sister bloggers Andee and Sab. They said that it’s such a very good product so I couldn’t pass it on.

  I got the shade Mauvey.
  The packaging is simple, slick, expensive looking.


Here’s a close up photo of Mauvey:


I chose this lip color because it reminded me so much of my favorite Estee Llauder Pinkberry lipstick. I thought they looked so similar and EB is just a fraction of the price of EL.

Here’s a side by side comparison:

Ever Bilena & Estee Llauder

Mauvey & Pinkberry

Obviously, Pinkberry is tad darker than Mauvey. But they’re pretty similar. Also, Pinkberry has shimmers while Mauvey is all matte.

I am in love with the shade, again because it looks like Pinkberry. It looks like a nude lipstick with pink undertone and that works really well on me. The pink undertone helps me  and gives me more color. With super nude lippies, I honestly look sick.

I gotta say I love that it’s really long lasting. I think that if you’re looking for that matte lipstick, this is a good product! On the other side, what I don’t like about it is it doesn’t glide smoothly and it’s a little drying. Maybe because it’s matte?! But yeah, I kinda have a hard time applying it because it’s dry. So I would normally put gloss on top of it to give my lips a little moisture.

So what do you think? I’ve worn this a couple of times but just haven’t taken photos of them but I’ll definitely do so really soon so I can share them with you. :)

p.s. i want to see your vlog!! :)

the pigment is really identical. I'll try it soon

I've heard so much about that EB matte in Mauvey. I checked it out in the EB counter but I didn't like it.. the Careline lip glosses looks promising.

Hazel: I deleted the vlog na. Hahaha! I really think I'm not ready for it yet. Haha!

Ahne: Yup it's quite similar, really.

Hollie: It's a little drying but it's long lasting. Yup the lipglosses are really nice. I'm even considering getting more colors.
