Ellana Cosmetics is one of my favorite local brands since their products are vegan and cruelty-free, and yet are made from pure ingredients. Thanks to this brand that I was able to continue putting on makeup even during pregnancy. My top 3 favorite products from the brand are the lip in luxe matte liquid lipstick, mineral powder foundation and makeup brush cleaner!
But after trying out the Lip Drunk Blush, I think I have a new favorite! Lip Drunk blush (P 449.00 for a refill) is a tinted lip and cheek balm stain that has a creamy texture but sets off matte. What I have is the shade Sangria, a deep red color that is similar to that of a red wine. It has a subtle flowery scent that is barely noticeable once applied.
I love it because it works great as both blush and lip stain! I have tried other lip and cheek stain or balms that either worked great as a blush or a lip stain, but not both. But this one from Ellana is superb! As a blush, I was able to blend it easily. It’s buildable so you may opt to just put a little for just a hint of color or build it up to emphasize your cheeks. It lasted for around 4-5 hours, considering my cheeks are oily. The best thing is that it is really moisturizing, leaving no dry patches.
As a lip stain, it’s also very creamy and moisturizing. It’s buildable that I was able to achieve the deep red color I want. It doesn’t last that long on my lips though, around 2-3 hours only, so I had to reapply once in a while. It leaves a natural stain on the lips when it fades, so it gives that pretty MLBB look. Just a tip, make sure that you to scrub your lips first before applying the stain. I tried applying it on my dry lips and it highlighted the patches, especially when I built up the stain. Other than that, I have no other issues with this product.
A little product goes a long way too! I have used the stain for 1 week already, but it still looks so full. Definitely worth the money. I’m excited to try out other shades soon. Now my top 3 products from Ellana are the lip in luxe matte liquid lipstick, mineral powder foundation and Lip Drunk blush!
Have you tried the lip drunk blush too? What’s your favorite Ellana cosmetics product?
