Worth the Price Wednesday – @oribe Lip Lust Crème Lipstick in The Red

May 1, 2019

It’s safe to say that, when @nikirobisonbrows gifted me this @oribe Lip Lust Creme Lipstick in The Red ($42 on their website), I was in awe of how beautiful the packaging was and I absolutely couldn’t wait to test it out!
What it claims:
🔘 Our signature lipstick delivers luminous color in a satin finish
🔘 Ultra-comfortable formula glides onto lips for a silky, indulgent feel
🔘 An infusion of White Lily and Myrrh moisturizes, protects and visibly plumps lips
My experience:
👍🏻 The color is stunning.
👍🏻 The packaging is some of the best I’ve seen.
👎🏻 It’s difficult to apply precisely. I usually never purchase dark lip colors in bullet lipstick form for that reason.
👍🏻 It is very comfortable and moisturizing.
👍🏻 It lasts longer than several other bullet lipsticks I’ve tried.
👎🏻 It traveled slightly out of my lip line only an hour or so after applying.
👍🏻 It didn’t transfer onto my teeth.
My verdict?
Let’s address the elephant in the room. This lipstick is $42. That is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. No lipstick is worth that much. Even the Chanel liquid lip I love so much is $38, but I get @ebatesshopping cash back and I earn points through @macys rewards program, so it softens the blow slightly. @oribe has neither of those value added items, so it’s an even tougher pill to swallow. I will enjoy using it up (likely with a lip liner underneath going forward), but won’t repurchase.
This is my first time trying an @oribe product. Do you have a favorite from their line that is worth the price?
