Hello hello. I’m back with another review and today it’s a super in-depth review of the Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme in the shade Nude.
I picked mine up from Love Lula and instantly thought it might be a good dupe for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams or the Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Creams. I used to love these and have struggled to find a cleaner non toxic version of these ever since.
So the finish is very similar to the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams and the Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Creams so I wasn’t wrong.
It is in fact a soft matte. It’s drys to your lips just like a liquid lipstick.
I would say you really need to make sure you’re lips are exfoliated and well moisturised before applying this because it does cling to dry areas and sit in the fine lines of your lips if you haven’t primed your lips well.
It also doesn’t do well with multiple layers. I’d say 2 layers maximum otherwise it starts to gather horribly and just doesn’t look good.
If it looks too dry on my lips I go over it with a gloss and it looks fine and adds some moisture to my lips as it can be a little drier as most matte lip products are.
The Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme claims to be long lasting. I tested it out by applying it to my hand and washed my hands twice and it still had not come off. I tested it out by wearing it on the lips to a baby shower recently and it lasted a good amount of time.
I did have to reapply but definitely lasted longer than my other lip products.
It also wears off nicely. It didn’t leave me patchy.
The Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme has clear plastic packaging. The silver strip on the black lid wore off within a week or so. It just peeled away but this did nothing for me really.
I do prefer the packaging of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams because they opted for a matte lid to reflect the finish of the product which I thought it was a nice touch.
However I do appreciate that the tube is clear so you can see the colour of the product more accurately.
The doe foot applicator is standard of many liquid lipsticks and I wasn’t mad at it.
For 3.8g of product, the Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme costs £20 in comparison to the drug store friendly prices of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme (£6) and the Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Cream (£2.99).
I’m not surprised that this is more expensive because of the cleaner ingredients.
At first I thought it was also justified because I assumed there was more product in the Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme. It looked noticeably larger in packaging compared to the Nyx and Collection dupes. But I was surprised to find out that the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme has 8g of product and the Collection Velvet Kiss Lip Creme has 5g.
The packaging is deceivingly big.
If I’m being honest, I don’t think it’s worth £20 although I like the product.
I like that a clean beauty brand has dupes for mainstream makeup because honestly I do miss some of it. In my opinion Bellapierre has a powder contour kit which is an amazing dupe for the Anastasia Beverley Hills Contour Kits and they really nailed that.
However I think this could have been carried out a little better in regards to it’s lasting power. I like the product but it’s not as good as it’s mainstream dupes. But this may be down the cleaner ingredients. I still think it performs well and lasts a good amount of time. I wouldn’t call it kiss proof though lol. You deffo will need to reapply throughout the day at least once or twice.
Overall this gets a thumbs up from me. If only it was reasonably priced.
