Capsule Review: Red Logo Hints & Fab Lipsticks

When it comes to lipsticks, do you choose to go pretty or powerful?


Today's post will be a capsule review about Red Logo's two lipstick brands: Hints and Fab. Red Logo is a local direct-selling company under Golden ABC, Inc.

Red Logo Hints Color Cream Lipstick in Coral Crush
A moisturizing blast of rich, creamy color that cares for the lips, kiss after kiss.


Hints Color Cream Lipstick comes in a lightweight plastic packaging. The tube looks cute in baby pink, black, and white.


The manufacturing and expiry dates are printed on the packaging so you'd know when to finally toss it out. The shelf life for this lipstick is 2 years.


The ingredients are also listed on the cap.


At the base is a sticker that indicates the shade name of the lipstick.


My camera was so stubborn and couldn't capture the true shade of the lipstick on the tube. In actual, it has a coral-salmon shade that looks absolutely sweet and pretty. However, the quality of this one needs improvement, as it's my first time to use a lipstick that has air-bubbles in it.

Swatch:


Red Logo Hints Color Cream Lipstick in Coral Crush

Pros:
  • It comes in a cute, lightweight packaging.
  • It's affordable.
  • It has a creamy texture that doesn't easily melt.
  • It has a moisturizing formula. No chapping!
  • Coral Crush is a beautiful, everyday lipstick shade.

Cons:
  • It has a strong artificial scent.
  • It has air bubbles.
  • It's moisturizing, but it doesn't have a smooth glide.
  • After a few hours of wear, it settles into lip lines.
  • It's not very pigmented. I did multiple swipes just to achieve the shade of the swatch above.
  • It's available only thru Red Logo direct sellers.

I classify Red Logo Hints Color Cream Lipstick in Coral Crush as my go pretty shade of lipstick.

Red Logo Fab Lipstick in Luxe


Fab Lipstick in Luxe is the big sister of Hints. It comes in a slim and sleek packaging. It actually came with a box, which got lost at home.


It also has a simple sticker label at the base of the tube, indicating the shade name and grams of the product.


Luxe is a brownish red shade. It's bordering from nude to brick red. On the tube, it looks matte (without any hint of shine), but this one actually has a smoother glide compared to Hints.

Swatch:


 
Red Logo Fab Lipstick in Luxe
 
Pros:
  • It comes in a slim, sleek, and durable plastic packaging. The type that won't crack even if you drop it a lot of times.
  • The slim width of the lipstick makes it easy to apply.
  • It's pigmented.
  • It has a chocolate scent!
  • It has a satin finish.
  • It's not very moisturizing, but not too drying as well.
  • It has a smooth glide when applied.
  • Lasting power is better than Hints.

Cons:
  • It's available only thru Red Logo direct sellers.

I classify Red Logo Fab Lipstick in Luxe as my go powerful shade of lipstick.

I don't know how much these lipsticks exactly cost, but I'm quite certain that my sister got them for less than P200.00 a pop.


To answer my question above: When it comes to lipsticks, do you choose to go pretty or powerful?

I choose to go powerful. I like those man-repelling shades like brick red or fuchsia, since I feel good whenever I wear such shades.

How about you? :)

Love,
Helen

    1. Hi Apple! Glad to have helped. I was actually searching for reviews too, but found none so I decided to just make one. :)

      The shade is pretty, but I hope the one you get has a better quality. Thank you so much for dropping by!
