As part of beauty haul from a local supermarket, I got the Wardah Lipcolours Palette Exclusive.
This palette consists of of 12 lip colors in a satin (non-matte) formula, priced at Rp46,00. Wardah also has another similar palette with matte colors.
On the back of the palette, the colors are numbered, so the it’s also a good way to try on various colors before committing to full-sized products.
Wardah promises jojoba oil, squalene, vitamin E and UV protection in this palette; I do see them in the ingredient list, along with olive oil, so the claim seems justified. The active ingredient for UV protection in this palette is Octyl Methoxycinnamate which, at sufficient level of concentration, can provide broad spectrum (UV A & UV B) protection.
The formula of these lipsticks are good. I’ve tried wearing a few colors for whole days, usually with lip balm with sun protection underneath because I don’t really know the level of protection provided by this palette.
I’ve also worn some colors by itself a few times, just around the house. The verdict? Colors stay around for at least 3 hours with moderate drinking and, best of all, they’re not drying!
In the complete swatch photo below, the colors seem to be strongly yellow-based so they all lean orange; in real life they’re not this orange and I think they are different enough from each other (click on the picture below for larger swatches).
The colors range from a bright red, to bright fuchsia, a light pink, a few mauves, and a few brownish reds. From work, to dinner reception, a casual outing or out shopping, there’s sufficient variety for a number of looks. There is a mirror inside, and the requisite useless piece of brush. [Why is it so hard to get a decent brush with a palette??]. Invest in a nice retractable lip brush, and this will be a great travel palette.
Overall, this is a good product that gives value beyond its price.
Note: Wardah cosmetics can be found at local supermarket chains and in cosmetic shops at your local pasar. I bought mine at a neighborhood supermarket.
