 Hi dear readers,

There are different ingredients lists I found. Onr from make up alley site and the other from package picture that I found on some web. My carton already gone before I had the chance to take the pic of it.

Version 2 : Ingredients from behind the carton FROM

This one will add some gloss to ur lipstick. I have tried it as lipstick base and used it alone. When my lips at sensitive mode, I felt little unpleasant feeling after applying it. This one has citrusy smell, somewhat lemon-y.
I used it for around 10 days before gave up. My lips don’t like it.

Pros :
- affordable with decent SPF
- non sticky
- moisturizing
- can be used as liptick base
- can go for long use

Cons :
- weird taste, kinda sour something
- contains mineral oil and derivative
- Not suitable for sensitive skin
- not moisturizing enough when my lips at very dry state
- unpleasant feeling after application when my lips is in troubled mode

Repurchase ? No. I don’t like the taste and the formula is not gentle too. I’m not saying that it’s a bad product, I just don’t like it while maybe there are many people out there who love it.
So that’s all I can say, to be honest I’m kinda disappoint with ZA this time, too bad since I like their other products such as concealer and Sun Protection.
See u next time, lovelies
