EB Advance LTD Liquid Lipstick in Moody Merlot Review

EB Advance, a sub brand from Ever Bilena, is a local brand here in the Philippines. This is my first product that I bought from them. I believe that they launched the LTD matte liquid lipsticks last year. I bought this for only 180.00 pesos. I bought this because I had a wedding to attend last March 9, but my makeup artist didn't use it since it doesn't match my eye makeup that time.

The packaging is just the same with their old EB Advance Liquid Lipstick. It is on a plastic tube packaging with a doe-foot wand applicator. What I like about their packaging is that you can easily distinguish the shade of the lipstick. The only information written on the bottom part of the tube is the brand, shade, manufacturing date, manufacturer, net weight and shelf life. Some of the words are so little and I find it hard to read. Ingredients are also not included on the label. 

Here is the swatch of this liquid lipstick. Excuse my hairy arm. Lol. This shade is dark red and malakas makaputi. This product also has a candy-like or something sweet scent with it but it goes away when you put it on your lips. I am actually a fan of red or dark lipsticks and I really like this shade. 

Here my photos wearing this EB Advance LTD Liquid Lipstick in Moody Merlot, both taken in natural light. The first photo is with a bit of sunlight hitting my highlight (lol) and the second photo is just the usual light in the room when I took it. Also, excuse my falsies if they are not cooperating that day. My eyelash glue sucks. I just go back to the old one that I use.

My final verdict for this product (This will be an honest review, don't hate me):
I was actually surprised with the pigmentation. It is very pigmented, even the nude and pink shades, to think that this is just 180.00 pesos. The color pay off is also very good since it's pigmented. All of their shades are very wearable. It is very easy to apply and very creamy. Another thing that I like is that it is not drying on the lips. One thing that I didn't like about it is that it is not transfer proof. When I swatched it at their counter, I didn't removed it. To my surprise, it stained on my shirt. I swatch other brands when I am at the mall but I didn't experience that until now. You have to be very careful when using this product. It easily stains everywhere especially if it is not yet dry, so I guess it won't stay that long on the lips especially if you eat. Just a bit disappointed about that since I really like the shade and pigmentation and since it's a matte lipstick. Another thing, ang tagal nya magdry. You have to wait for at least 2 to 4 minutes (I guess) for it to dry. I would still recommend it if ever since it's really pigmented and all the shades are really good. You just have to be careful in using this one :)
