BLK Cosmetics Soft Matte Mousse in Hibiscus and Creamy All-Over Paint in Daffodil

by - October 12, 2019

When BLK Cosmetics released another batch of pretty items for their K-Beauty collection, I was on the lookout.  The lovely packaging is just irresistible and of course, the lip colors are right up my alley too.

I mean, look at these! 😍

I wanted to get one each but my budget did not permit so I was only able to score two of the lip products.  Well, both can be used on the lids and cheeks too so such a win!

Soft Matte Mousse in Hibiscus (379 php)

This is a pretty rosy mauve shade.  It has a nice color payoff and leaves a stain - perfect to use as a blush.

The doe-foot applicator that it comes with has a curved and pointy tip which helps with outlining the lips too.

The name describes the finish and formula - matte and mousse.  I like how velvety and airy it feels.  However, I find that it doesn't go well with dry lips and it's not moisturizing either.  

Although the color is rich, there could be a bit of unevenness since it's a mousse.  It's not a biggie though.  Just make sure to spread it thoroughly - like layering icing on a cake.  Oh, and it smells like one too!  😊

When used as a blush, it has a powdery finish, unlike other cream blushes.  

I also found a color dupe!  

Another watch out is that color does not last after drinking or eating.  For me, that's okay because mousse-like lip products are more for the comfort and soft matte finish anyway.

Creamy All-Over Paint in Daffodil (399 php)

If you're looking for a product to try from BLK Cosmetics, include this in your list.  It's multi-purpose too like the previous one but Creamy All-Over Paint is a better option to achieve that naturally flushed look.

I have the shade Daffodil because Peony is on the pink side and I prefer peachy colors.

It comes with a larger doe-foot applicator so it's not for precise application.  You're going to do a lot of blending with this one.  

The consistency is watery and silky and the formula is light.  It's more pigmented than Soft Matte Mousse because it's meant to be "paint".  One small dot is enough for each cheek.

It's so easy to blend with the fingers and gives a pretty stain when applied on the cheeks.
It has a non-drying formula so even if the finish is on the matte side, your lips won't look too wrinkly.

It also lasts longer than the Mousse.  It's like a lip/cheek tint but in an even better formula.

Between the two, I prefer All-Over Paint in terms of color and formula.  However, I cannot get the velvety finish from it so if I'm going for that effect, I'd need the mousse lippie.
