Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer

Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer is a hybrid formula lipstain, gloss, and balm all in one that launched in Korea in four different shades. I was delighted with the Welcos Killing Me Zombie Crazy Gloss Lip Tint I recently picked up and I’m happy to report back that the Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer is along the same lines in terms of pigment, formula, texture, and wear!

Let’s have a look see!

Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer is a thick, balmy gloss has the full coverage of a lipstick, the lovely shine of a gloss, the texture of a balm and the long wear of a lip stain! If you recall Almay released their Liquid Lip Balm last year and on some levels this is an improved, better version of that formula!

Lioele created a gloss that’s textured like your favorite lip balm in a liquid form with the same moisturizing, hydrating properties! But the goodness doesn’t stop there as this applies like a thicker cream gloss with a shiny finish plus the wear and color coverage of a lipstick at around four to five hours. And don’t forget as it wears away (see my pic below after four hours) it leaves behind a staining effect that’s visibly for an hour or two on top of the already long wear.

Impressive right?

I find products that are supposed to multitask typically end up being one trick ponies but not Lioele Crystal Balm Lip Lacquer! This little gem has great color, a hydrating formula, a long comfortable wear, and gorgeous shine.

I think I’m in love!

I’d recommend trying it out for yourself!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    That’s beautiful! I have to wait for my friend to go back to Japan though haha. Can you blot away the shine while keeping the color?

    • Isabella Muse

      absolutely if you want a less intense look you can blot away color and shine and it looks more like a stain versus a lacquer.

    I LOVE all your Korean make-up reviews, Muse 😉 I think that was what got me to finding your site years ago, when I first heard of Etude House. So happy that you’re exposing other brands as well!

    • Isabella Muse
