Hey darlings, doing good?
I’d be reviewing Island Beauty’s lipstick in Pure Pink, I have reviewed two of their lipsticks already, click here and here.
Just so you know, this is the worst lipstick shade ever (this one is so fake I can’t even hide it, whaaaattt)
Product: Island Beauty Lipstick in Pure Pink (more like yucky pink).
Where to buy: Mallam/Beauty store, I got mine from a Mallam in Wuse market.
Pigmentation: Overly pigmented that it breaks/cracks etc, uggh.
How long does it last? I cleaned it off after swatching because it coagulated and kept breaking so I can’t tell how long it will last.
Application: It doesn’t apply smoothly at all, coated it twice or thrice for the shade above.
Texture: It is so dry, like overly matte, not as oily or semi oily as Wild Red & Black Raspberry.
Will I buy again? Even if it’s the original, I’d have to read another swatch review before buying again. I bought it before and it had this same breakage problem so you know where I’m coming from.
Pure Pink is too light for my skin tone, I had no makeup on in the pictures above but still, it’s too light. I really regret buying this because I can’t even make it work at all. Don’t buy. (THIS IS A FAKE LIPSTICK P.S)

I understand Dear. Used it before but I tossed it down the bin because of these reasons. Would prefer another shade to this one over and over again as long as it doesn’t coagulate and break.
Yes, I think Pure Pink is a mess (the ones I’ve tried).
They have new shades for 2015, but they’re not in Nigeria.
I’ve bought this shade before; I used to refer to it as Nicki Minaj pink.
I must have used it 3 times and dumped it because the shade was just too much for me and it always looked like chalk.
Nigerian and Natural
Yes, yes & yes! Nicki Minaj pink is the best description but it just doesn’t apply smoothly, always breaking. 😦
Same issue i had when i got this shade but i just decided to try “ombre lips” (not sure thats what its called) with it. That is i added purple lipstick on it . And wolla it came out nice. At least preferable.
For real? I think it’s safe to say the Pure Pink is a no-no.
Yes ombre lips, I can’t even do that with this lipstick, the breakage is annoying ehn.
