Missha Lipstick Swatches, as promised ;)


Hi All,

I said on my previous, previous post that I would upload some swatches of the lipsticks I recently got from Missha. I tried them all on and tested each of them for a full day and added some short reviews to the lipsticks. I think the thing about missha lipsticks is, you have to have pretty nice lips to wear the lipstick. If you have dry, chapped lips like me you might want to smooth it out first.

Just to recap, these are the lipsticks (yay for spring pink!!!)



and these were the swatches on the skin. (MAC NC20)






Missha The Style Creamy Matte Lip Rouge PK02 - Dear Rose


My fav out of the four I got. Reason being is, it's the most opaque color with a very nice reddish tea rose color to it. It's not a tacky pink color, so even if you have super pale or super dark skin, I think it will fit very well with any skin tone. It looks sheer when swatched on the skin, but it does apply quite pigmented on the lips. It is a matte color, but like all the other colors in the line, it's not 100% matte - it still gives you minimal glossiness. I do have to admit, it is more on the drying side, and as warned, if you have dry lips like me, it could look like a disaster without prior lipblaming.

Color: 5/5
Pigmentation: 4/5
Lasting power: 2.5/5
Moisturizing power: 2/5
Price: 3/5 (12.99 USD)





Missha M Luminous Color Lip Rouge PK102


The M Luminous line lipsticks are definitely more pigmented than the matte lip rouge line products. It's also more creamy and thick. The swatch on the skin gives an illusion of a sheer lipstick, but when applied, it's nowhere near sheer. Compared to the other three lipsticks, the color is a tad bit darker (with a hint of gray as the undertone), but still in the rose pink category. It lacks the "artificial" or "plastic" coloring of the lovely angel and dear rose lipsticks. I think the lasting power of the M luminous line is better than the matte lip rouge line.

Color: 4/5
Pigmentation: 4.5/5
Lasting power: 3.5/5
Moisturizing power: 3/5
Price: 3/5 (14.99 USD)





Missha The Style Creamy Matte Lip Rouge PK01 - Lovely Angel


It looks similar to PK02 (dear rose), but when applied on the lips, it's a bit different. Lovely Angel is a brighter tone with a bit of coral in it, which makes it look lighter and brighter on the skin. Although the coral aspect is barely noticeable to the naked eye, I do think it somehow distinguishes itself from Dear Rose with that subtle coral tint. Like the other lipsticks in the line, it is quite drying, and lasting power isn't that great

Color: 4.5/5
Pigmentation: 3/5
Lasting power: 2.5/5
Moisturizing power: 2/5
Price: 3/5 (12.99 USD)



Missha M Luminous Color Lip Rouge BE203



BE203 is a beige/nude lipstick with a pink undertone to it. I guess the pinkness embedded in the color adds a bit of a natural look to the lips, but this color just doesn't fly with me. It seems to wash out my complexion, and makes me look like I just have colorless, dry lips. I think it will look better on those that have darker skin tones, but for my asian & pale skin, it just doesn't do. The texture is creamy and lasting power is longer compared to the matte lip rouge colors. (Sorry I don't have a face swatch. I accidentally deleted from my camera)


Color: 4/5
Pigmentation: 4.5/5
Lasting power: 3.5/5
Moisturizing power: 3/5
Price: 3/5 (14.99 USD)

  1. I like the packaging of these but I wish they would be a little cheaper(heck, they are 50 cents more expensive than Mac!),

    P.S. Love your eye makeup!

  2. yeah, that's why I only get stuff when missha has those crazy sales haha. I got them during the spring 30% off sale, which scaled down the price a lot. Sometimes they have like 50%s too so I'll try to keep you guys posted. The most recent sale, I totally forgot to let you guys know :'(

  5. I love the packaging of the Luminous lipsticks, reminds me of those gorgeous Estee Lauder lipsticks!

    [By the way, I thought Missha was a rather affordable brand- but 30D for a BB cream, isn't that much? It's sad that brands boost their prices once they become successful outside their base, just like Korres does outside Greece...]

  6. I don't think Missha intentionally jacked up the prices :p When a domestic brand gets exported to other countries, usually tax is heavily charged resulting in a price increase. You should see how american brands (like bobbi brown and beneift) are sold at twice the local price in other parts of the world and Japanese brands outside of Japan. I think it's just the market structure and taxes forcing prices up :)

  7. The colors look lovely on you! :]

    Yes, that is very true, a lot of American brands are 2x more expensive in different countries. That why a number of people from different countries tend to go crazy when they see "cheaper" make up.

  10. thanks so much for the swatches xD
    I've just been planning to grab myself some lipsticks from Missha..

    Just a quick random question here. A lot of the Korean and Japanese brands makeup I buy don't have expiry dates. I was wondering if you could give me a general idea when I need to throw things out..
