Review: Excel Lip Cream in 512 (Red Orange)

Hi there! I hope that everyone is enjoying the long weekend!
Well thanks to holiday, I am able to make another product review.
Since Clarisse is excited for another Excel Lip cream review, here it is sis!

As you all know, I am a bit disappointed to excel lip cream, just like what I mention on my first review (here)
this lip cream is extremely drying on lips, but I did not stop until I find ways on how to lessen its drying effect.
Wanna know how?
Keep on reading below!

Cost: P35.00
Where: Chic & Vogue
Shade: 512 (orange)
The number shade is same with the 512 (brown)

The product is actually sealed.

What you seen in the tube is what you get when you applied it on your lips.


It has the same number shade with the brown one, I dunno why.

The shades were all labeled by number at the bottom of the tube.

It says on the label that it is lip gloss but it is actually a lip cream.

Sponge applicator for easy application.
Here's the arm swatch:
WITHOUT FLASH, UNDER INDOOR LIGHTING.

 As you can see, this shade has orange undertone. It is a bright orangey red but still wearable thou. And I'm glad that it does not make my teeth appear much yellowish.

WITHOUT FLASH, UNDER NATURAL LIGHTING.
 Almost the same with EB Scarlet, but this one is more orangey.
THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS LIKE IN PERSONAL.

 HERE'S HOW IT LOOKS LIKE ON MY LIPS:

2 hours has been past after I applied the Excel Lip cream:




These pictures below were taken after I ate lunch, approximately 4 hours after I applied the Excel lip cream:

No retouching. Still, it looks good no? Just minimal fading on the inner corner of my lips.

And here's after 7 hours:
So here it is, it is still there, I already ate dinner at SM taytay, and I took a shot when I arrived home.

But you might wonder, the dryness is lesser now. My lips didn't look like cracking, right?
So what did I do?

The Solution: Apply a creamy lipstick before you apply Excel Lip Cream. Yes, it is much better if you will use your creamy lipstick rather than your lip balm. Why? Because I notice it that lip balm will only make the Excel lip cream sticky on your lips. To make the dryness minimal, I used Nyx Rose before I apply Excel lip cream.
Left: Nyx Louisiana, Right: Nyx Rose
This is the shade of Nyx Rose:

Just make sure to select the lipstick which has the same or near to shade of your Excel Lip Cream.
Nyx round lipstick aren't long lasting. I'm glad that I came up to this idea. Even The Nyx Louisiana goes well with my Excel Lip cream in 505. I will review it again soon!

And problem solved! This shade is one of my favorite now. I am starting to love the Excel lip creams now!
That's it!
Hope it helps!
Love,
Jenny
