When it comes to makeup, k-beauty brands are where I get the ‘my lips but better’ lip colors that are natural-looking and not drying. So, when I saw the am11 shade from Yulip, I know I wanted to try it.
Yulip was created when the founder was pregnant and was looking for a lip color that is made with natural ingredients. Their lipsticks are cruelty-free and are toxin-free, paraben-free, lead-free, gluten-free, chemical-free, and non-GMO. Instead, they are made of food-grade plant-based oils, organic beeswax, and shea butter to provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and soothing benefits.
These lipsticks feel creamy on the lips but it looks semi-matte. It can emphasize the lines on your lips so be wary if you have a lot. It does feel thicker than most lipsticks but I didn’t really mind because it stayed on longer than most as well. This isn’t one of those tints that compliment the color of your lips. This applies and covers as liquid lipstick would do without the dryness.
Iconic, a light pink beige with a peachy undertone, applies the exact color of the bullet. It takes about two solid swipes to completely cover my lips. I like how this brightens my face instead of making me look sick. Even without the dark eyes or bright cheeks, this works for my skin. AM11 is a burnt orange, deep coral color. It’s an everyday lip that looks bold enough if you want some color but not too much that it’s distracting. Angry Rose, a brick red, dried rose color with pink undertone, is good to use at night to deepen the look or in the morning if you want to be a bit bold.
