At first I was dismayed, there was only one lipstick shade in Muji, Rose Pink, and it looked a tad too berry-ish for me though the texture looked gorgeous. I took a chance while telling myself my part-Japanese lineage would ensure a great color match.
So I wore it, and then suddenly…step aside, Ladies!!
This happens to be my deeper “my-lips-but-better-shade”. I put it on and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, a deep pink adjacent to my skintone that was utterly pretty. Unknown to many, I have a slight issue with my lips being too full on naturally pink most of the time because their own color tends to overpower any lipstick I want to try (particularly lipsticks that aren’t full coverage). Finally, I find a lipstick with strong, moisturizing coverage that enhances my own lipcolor. The solid but moist texture is like that of Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited lipstick (which I just finished down to the bottom) which isn’t high shine and leaves a healthy sheen of full color across your lips. Muji’s lipstick is a win for the price.
It has a nifty little round mirror at the top of the cap (how kind of them sorry I didn’t show it in the photo). I threw this in my bag the day I took this picture and I’ve used it everyday since and I’m wearing it right now. I fancy this so much I find a reason to reapply during the day. If you and I don’t have the same lipcolor please note that this may not be your match if you have a deeper skintone ,and there’s only one shade. If, however, you happen to be a fair yellow toned gal like myself and people sometimes think you’re Korean or Japanese (that happened in college) this lipstick should be spot-on good on you. I got this for about P525.00 at Muji.
