Pucker Up! | Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Vogue Diva, Posh Plum, and Sexy Nude.

Hooray, we're currently on semestral break!
And with that, I now have the luxury of waking up late, staying at home the entire day (unless I feel the urge to go outside and hunt for Pokemons), catching up on my Korean dramas, and finishing all (or at least most) of my blog backlog.

Would you believe that I'm still not done with my Seoul Searching posts? And to think it's almost winter in South Korea! I also have a bagful of makeup and cosmetics from last spring's travel, still waiting to be swatched and tested. But first, let me share with you the latest from our favorite local makeup brand, Ever Bilena.

A few weeks back, they added three new shades to their Matte Lipstick Collection and as always, our friends from Ever Bilena never fail to keep us in the loop.
New lippies from Ever Bilena!
I guess if you're a true blue Ever Bilena fan, you're already familiar with these new shades. I mean, they're all over their Facebook page so it would be impossible not to notice!
From L-R: Vogue Diva, Posh Plum, Sexy Nude.
The shades are indicated on the box flap,
... and can be seen on the lipstick cap as well.
Anyway, the three new shades are Vogue Diva, Posh, Plum, and Sexy Nude
Swatches - Vogue Diva, Posh Plum, and Sexy Nude.
Vogue Diva, a dusky wine shade with red undertones, is the perfect fall (otherwise known as autumn) lipstick. Bold but not overly intimidating, this color is extremely wearable and will suit a variety of skin tones.

Posh Plum, on the other hand, is a brightened pinkish plum shade with subtle, cool undertones. It's perfect for everyday wear, and has now been added to my list of  'go-to/any-occasion' lipstick. Comparing it against MAC's range of plum/purple lipsticks, I'd say this shade is a toss-up between Plumful and Rebel (which I have yet to write about, haha!)

Finally, there's Sexy Nude. As the name suggests, it's a nude, peachy tan shade that can look quite flattering on fair and medium skin tones. There was a time last year when I went gaga over nudes and corals, and how I wish this shade had been available back then.

One thing I noticed about these lipsticks is their improved texture and formulation. They now have the same soft, buttery feel as Maybelline's Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick, which is actually a good thing. They're now easier to apply, and they hardly tug on the lips.
Product description on the box.
Vogue Diva does have a tendency to accentuate the lines on my lips after a few hours of wear, but for the most part, these lipsticks are pretty comfortable to wear and do not feel dry on the lips. The subtle vanilla scent is also a plus for me, and so is the affordable price - just Php 165 a pop!

I love matte lipsticks. If there's one make-up product that I can't resist it would be matte lippies. These are very affordable too!

I will choose matte over sheen lipstick any day. Looks like EB has a new set of lippies for us to go crazy over. I think it's nice that there are brands like this that are affordable but also have good quality.

Those shades are all so beautiful although if I had to pick one I would choose the posh plum. I love any shades of pink more than any other color.
