Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream [Makeup Review]

Hello guys, today I am back with a new review – Purbasari HI-MATTE LIP CREAM. This probably is the most waited review right now, I believe. Many have been wondering about the quality and the price since Suhay Salim posted the picture on her instagram. Well, now you wish is granted. Here is my thought about it.

Purbasari

Purbasari is a local cosmetic brand in Indonesia. It was established in 1993 by PT Gloria Origita Cosmetic. The company has a goal to “Provide beauty and skincare solutionsultimate quality and affordable”.

With quite wide range of beauty products, the brand has penetrated into the export market in Southeast Asia – Taiwan, Hongkong, and Middle East.  Their products are especially loved by the Muslim because it is not only BPOM certified, but it is also GMP Plant and Halal certified.

Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream

Hi-Matte Lip Cream is the newest product that was officially launched on Saturday, 6 at JakartaxBeauty. At the grand launching, Suhay appeared as a Guest Star to share some Lipstick Tips. In short, she shared how to choose lipstick shade basing on Skin Color. To help us understand better, Suhay was picked 5 volunteers from the audience to be her model.  Each model has different skin tone. Therefore, everyone got different shades that complimented them best.

 

Well, as you could guest, the lipstick Suhay used was Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream. After the revelation, a representative from Purbasari was invited to join the talkshow.

 

My experience

After the event, the invited bloggers were given a shade to try. Well, there was no obligation to review the Hi-Matte Lip Cream, but I wrote this because I believe many of you are just as curious as me. So, basing from my personal experience, here is my Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • Easy to apply
  • Pigmented
  • Soft-Matte formula
  • Dry quickly
  • No transfer / Kiss-proof
  • Long lasting
  • The fading shade looks beautiful, like ombre lips (if the shade is different with your lip skin color)
  • Great packaging (see below for details)
  • There is no funny chemical smells; it smells like Vanilla faintly. Nothing’s overwhelming
  • The shades are all wearable, very friendly with our Asian Skintone
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • After 1 hours, this Hi-Matte lip cream started to feel dry. It felt most dry when I was in the cool and dry room with AC on such as in the car.
  • Limited Nude shades. The only nude shades they have washed me out. Therefore, I did not get it.

The Shades

Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream comes in 5 shades only for now. I am not sure if they are going to launch more shades anytime soon, but I hope they do because I want more of nude shades that may compliment my skin tone best. It’s because the current shade available does not suit me. It made me look washed out.

Here are the swatches:

The Packaging

As mentioned in the video, Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream has a beautiful packaging. The outer box is designed with a black theme with Purbasari Logo printed on the top at the front side. Following is the name of the products – Hi-Matte Lip Cream. Underneath is the category of the lipstick, which is Hydra Series. Still on the front side, at the bottom they add little information regarding the formula that the product is formulated with Vitamin E and UV Filter.

At the back side, they printed details such as how to keep the product properly; so, it can last long. Also, on the same side, they printed the batch code and the epxiry date.

On another side, we have the ingredient list. Make sure you read this properly; so you can know whether you can wear this lipstick or not. It’s because we need to be cautious. If we do not check, we will not know if they use forbidden ingredient like Mercury, for example. Also, if you are allergic to particular chemicals, you really should check this side out.

Inside, we have the Purbasari Hi-Matte Lip Cream. It is packaged in a square shape transparent tube. It has a black lid. Underneath the lid, they added gold lease as decoration, which makes this Hi-Matte Lip Cream feels luxurious. On the side of the body, we have additional Batch Code and Expiry Date information printed. I personally find it thoughtful of them. I tended to forget labeling my makeup with the expiry date after throwing the box to the bin. So, Purbasari, I give you two thumbs up for this! At the bottom of the tube, we have the Color Code again too.

The Store & The Price

It can be purchased at your nearest Purbasari Official Store such as Guardian, Watson, Giant, Transmart Carrefour, and other official stores or counters. Another way, you can also purchase it from your trusted online shop. Since I always buy local makeup brand from official counters, I can’t really recommend you any online shop. If you have recommendation, please share it on the comment box below. Who knows your information can be useful for other fella readesrs 🙂 Thank you!

For the price, it costs between IDR 39,000 – IDR 45,000*. It depends on where you shop.

*Price may change anytime without notice
