My favorite Becute Lipsticks [Review + Swatches]



Budget Lipsticks anyone? Becute is a popular cosmetics brand in our country which offers good quality affordable make up items. I have a couple of their single eyeshadows and lipsticks, and I have two of the lipcolors to share with you.

Packaging:
Maroon plastic, twist-up packaging.




No 325


No 359

Review and Swatches:
No 325 is a beautiful blue-toned MATTE Red color. Really pigmented and creamy textured, it glides smoothly on the lips. The color stays on for several hours on my lips and leaves behind a stain on the lips when the color fades. I've always received compliments when I've worn this color, it looks amazing and retro when paired with a cat-eye liner only. I'd suggest the use of a lip balm underneath as the formula is matte and hence can sometimes be too drying.

No 359 is a frosty mauve toned pink, appears kind of a frosty nude on the lips. It gives a nice swatch of shiny color to your lips.It's been my most worn lipstick in university so you can see it's almost gone. The color is very wearable and pretty. Stays on for 2-3 hours, and needs touching up. The formula is smooth and creamy and has a shiny finish as I mentioned. Has tiny glitter particles but they don't show up on the lips. Balanced formula that doesn't dry out the lips much!

Honestly I have no negatives aspects to share about these lipsticks, at a nominal price they're a great buy!

Swatches L-R: No 359, No 325


Lip Swatch No 359


Lip Swatch No 325

Price and Availability:
Most of the stores across the country stock these especially the small shops in the markets. Price is between PKR 150-250.
