If I could get back all the hours I have spent comparing three different, nearly identical shades of plum lipstick at the drugstore, I would have time to learn Spanish. I much prefer shopping for cosmetics than enriching my brain with new language skillz, but that’s not really the point.
The point is, picking a lipstick color is hard. And then you have to draw inside the lines to avoid looking like a crazy person, a feat that has gotten only slightly easier in the 10+ years I’ve been wearing bright lip color. I just want berry-hued lips after putting in no more effort than swiping on Chapstick. Is that so much to ask?
Where my berry lips at?
Enter: Wei East Silver Sensation Daily Wear Lipstick. This long-wearing formula
uses voodoo reacts with your skin’s chemistry to make a custom lip color. The bullet looks like a lipstick, but goes on with the lightweight, creamy texture of a good lip balm.
I adore adult beauty products that make me feel like a kid again, and magical, color-changing lipstick is right up there. Bright pink is a shade I do wear often, so I got lucky with my “personal skin chemistry” result.
Your shade will vary depending on your complexion. And that will be your shade. You can’t blink or rub it into a lighter or darker tone, so don’t try it. I was pleasantly surprised that it wears more like a stain than a balm. It doesn’t quite live up to 12-hours, but my lips were soft and satisfyingly fuchsia all morning.
I have mixed feelings on the presentation though… The packaging is very 1990s Anna Sui (probably, I was 10 in the nineties). It’s a simple black bullet with Chinese characters on a red logo. Très chic. However! The actual bullet twists up to reveal a threatening, sparkly gold. If you can get past the Spice Girls effect, you’ll see that it doesn’t actually deposit any shimmer on your lips. Just sheer, stained color.
