Anyway, so here is another lipstick review for you guys. As you can remember this is my very first time to try the Sophie Martin Lipstick. So here's my thoughts about this super cheap but nice lipstick! You know that I am a hunter of bargain beauty products so why not give a try for this brand.
Here's the few information about Sophie Martin :

So first, let's talk about the packaging of the lipstick. It comes with the usual shiny black plastic tube. But it comes with the cute pink print on the tube. The label is a shiny metallic pink which made the lipstick looks like an expensive one.
It's nice because the lipstick is very sealed.
At the bottom part of the lipstick you can see the color shade, product number, expiry date (which is great), content and the manufacturing.
And also on the plastic seal, the ingredients were printed. I am not so familiar with all of the ingredients but you can see that it compose of castor oil, beeswax and avocado oil which is great for moisturizing our lips.
This is how the lipstick looks like inside.
The product is approximately 2 inches in length.
It comes wit the usual pointed and slanted tip lipstick.
Now, here's the swatches:
The Red pepper has a satin finish texture. It is not creamy but it glides smoothly when applied on lips.
The color is not opaque but you can maximize it's color by applying layers on your lips.
I'm not sure of its undertone, that's why I decided to compare it with the other red lipstick that I have.

On my lips:
Did not apply any lipbalm underneath, see how it makes my lips moisturized?
It adds shine to my lips thought it is not really opaque. The color may change depending on how pigmented your lips are.
