HOLIKA HOLIKA Enamel Lip Primer – Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Brand: Holika Holika
Range: Enamel Lip Primer
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • This lip primer claims to not only help lipstick stay true to colour &  last all day, but also prevent creasing, lock in moisture and create fuller lips.
  • When applied on a generous layer of lip balm, this lip primer really does lock in the moisture, as the silicone texture seals the lips leaving a translucent matte finish.
  • The silicone-like coat doesn’t interfere with lipstick & is non-drying.
  • Simply apply directly from the bullet & use fingers to blend.  It only takes a few sweeps for it to create a smooth even finish.
  • Verdict: This is by far the best lip concealer I’ve ever tried.  Although it doesn’t hide lip flakes, it doesn’t accentuate them either.  Best of all, it seals in your lip moisture and doesn’t interfere with the lipstick texture.

Applied on a generous layer of Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm & blended with fingers.

As I don’t have uneven lip tones I can’t vouch for its ability to conceal those concerns, but if you do try it out let me know!

It does an amazing job at muting intense colours whilst staying true to the original lipstick texture.
The lip concealer is also practically invisible aside from a hint of a silicone finish.

I purchased this from Pretty & Cute.

  • Heart-shaped lipstick that’s high in moisture with bold pigments for a statement lip.
  • Contains essential oils (sweet orange oil, grapefruit oil, olive oil) to protect and nourish lips and provide long lasting moisture.
  • The heart shape also makes it super easy to define the cupids bow.
  • I find the texture quite high maintenance, as it is very streaky, with a tendency to sink into lip lines.  From afar, it somehow manages to look like a flawless juicy bold lip lip, but the streakiness is noticeable close up
  • Can be worn both sheer or pigmented, but based on the above it’s much easier to wear it sheer.
  • Tip: Apply generous layer of a smoothing lip balm, and layer on the lipstick with a brush.  Let it sit for a while, and the streaks will disappear once it has melted onto the lips.
  • Verdict: Love the colour, dislike how high maintenance it is. Personally I’d choose MAC’s Sheen Supreme Lipstick over these, as they have the same pigment and moisture but have more grip, giving more even coverage.

This was swatched the 2nd time on a “good lip day”.  It’s actually quite streaky & sinks into lip lines.
