Japonesque Pro Performance Lipstick Swatches Review

Japonesque Pro Performance Lipstick Swatches & Review (c/o)

Besides their makeup tools, Coachella was where I first tried Japonesque makeup and I couldn’t wait to go home and try more.

The Japonesque Pro Performance Lipsticks are very creamy and easy to wear.  With a moisturizing formula, it provides a slight glossy look to the lips and the lipstick stayed creamy during wear.

The design of the lipstick bullet is also something to note when applying.  There’s a slight dip that hugs to the curves of your lips, making it easy to apply an even layer and getting into the corners of the mouth.

I was pleasantly surprised with the pigmentation of Shade 6, which required just one layer to get it this opaque.  It’s not exactly my favorite shade, but I couldn’t get over how beautiful this shade applied.

Shade 1 is the type of warm nude I usually go for – peachy-toned and opaque.  I put on two layers here without the help of any foundation over my lips.

Lastly, Shade 11 (which is what I took with me to Coachella), required a little bit more work than the others.  It wasn’t completely opaque with one swipe, so I applied 3 layers to get it to where I was satisfied.  On the first layer, the lipstick was semi-sheer and streaky with my natural lip color peaking through.

Japonesque Pro Performance Lipstick Swatches ReviewThe formulation of these lipsticks remind me a lot of the MAC Amplified lipsticks, so if you’re a fan of those, you’ll love these as well.

There are 12 shades in this line ranging from mauve, rose, red, and to a deep purple.  Now that I know how these wear on the lips, I’ll definitely have to pick more up in the future.

Available for $20 at Japonesque.com, Amazon.com and Ulta.com.

    Shade 6 is gorgeous, i think I need this in my life.

  • Oh dear!! Shade 1 and 11 are sooo perfect! I still don’t own any nude like 1 but I really want one. I need a lipstick that looks nude on me without being too brown or peach…and I struggle to find a nude that will cover up the strong rose tone of my lip color! Their lipsticks looks fabulous!

    • OMG, that is the struggle I always have! My lips are way too pigmented, but these babies actually cover it up.

  • Girlllll, I need Shade 1 in my life! <3
