Heng Fang Balm Lipstick in #2 Burgundy red

Heng Fang Balm Lipstick
Very inconspicuous in its tube
I decided to try this lipstick on a whim, I have quite a few Burgundy Lipsticks already but I haven't found the one that has that perfect shade of deep bloody red yet.

I always wanted a product that I just put on my face and suddenly I feel better and more confident! Usually when I am testing out new make up products I use them on my face and then the rest of my face looks so bare and naked!
Does this magic product even exist?
The one that you put on and it makes your face more clothed instead of more naked?

I do believe I found it!
When I was testing this lipstick at home I had crazy wild uncombed hair, I was really hot since there is some kind of heat wave happening here, and I felt generally gross just like one does in a summers day.
So I put this lipstick on with little expectations, the color looked good swatched but it isn't really a shade that wowed me on my hands.

I asked Johnny Clyde to take photos of the application stages, they are close ups of my lips only.
When I saw them on the camera screen I gasped, why does it look so pretty?
Was it suddenly perfect lighting in the room, or was the shade of red simply gorgeous?
I brushed it of as a mere mirage!
I went along with my day, lounging and trying not do die from heat stroke, but every time I caught my reflection I actually didn't look as gross as I felt, I looked decent and sort of like I just popped out of a vintage film
This is how a Lipstick should make you feel!
I decided to document this newly found lipstick confidence feeling that I heard so many people talk about and took a photo with a crappy web cam.
I still don't know how this Lipstick made me feel like such a princess?
But it did!
Johnny Clyde commented on how pretty the Lipstick looks too, and he never says anything even if I get dolled up!
He prefers me without make up and getting a compliment on make up from him is a pretty rare occurrence.

The Lipstick smells like nothing at all and it is really easy to apply, you can dab it, use a brush or just layer it straight from the bullet.
I actually happen to have the perfect Lip liner for this.
Estee Lauders Lip liner in Wine is a match made in heaven!
It does apply quite patchy, so keep that in mind since the Lipstick looks a little uneven on the Lip liner photo, but it is a really long lasting Liner so I don't care about that.

The Lipstick applies smoothly and evenly, it is very soft and quite hydrating.
I actually tolerate this on my lips for a few hours before begging for a lip balm!
It leaves a very nice berry stain behind, which makes the fading process quite even.
It lasts between 3-5 hours depending on what you are doing during that time of course.

All in all I think this is not just a gorgeous color but also a really nice quality lipstick.
I am actually a little bit of a lipstick snob.
Not that I don’t use cheap ones (Barry M is the bomb!), but after having used really expensive lipsticks I have quite a lot of expectations that often don’t get matched, not even by high end lipsticks.
I am looking at you Chanel!
