REVIEW: Miners Moisture Effect Lipstick in Moulin Rouge

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. - Gwyneth Paltrow

I am not the type who would rave about red lipsticks. I am just not a fan of them. As I have said before, they emphasize my very big lips. Are you familiar with duck face? Yeah, something like that.

Of course, I still have red lippies in my stash. I own some but I don’t normally use them. Or if I want to sport red lips, I just use the dabbing technique to achieve sheer red lips.

Ate Dee of Skye Avenue sent me some items for product review (click here to view the haul). One of the 2 items she sent me is the Miners Moisture Effect Lipstick in Moulin Rouge. My initial reaction was “Whoa, how am I going to road test this? It’s red. It’s loud. It’s so not me.” But I want to prove myself wrong. I want to be able to find the PERFECT RED LIPSTICK for me. 

Product Description (source):
Moulin Rouge Moisture Effect is inspired by the famous Parisian cabaret. This naughty shade is both deep in pigment and in soul. The flirty, ruby lipstick will leave your lips looking vibrant and moisturised.

Ingredients (source):
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Carnauba Wax, Mica, Cera Alba, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbaddensis Leaf Extract, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, +/- CI 19140, CI 45410, CI 15850.

It looks a tad darker in actual.

I was once asked if this is a true red lipstick and I answered it's ruby red. Upon researching for shades of red, I realized that ruby red is a true red. Sorry for the confusion I gave to the one who asked me. :)

Me wearing one enough swipe of Moulin Rouge on my lips.
Top: One swipe. Enough to give gorgeous red color on my lips.
Bottom: After eating.

- I like that the bottom part of the packaging shows shade of the lipstick.
- I received it sealed. 

- No parabens. 
- It glides on smoothly but it's not sticky at all.
- Very pigmented.
- Infused with moisturizing ingredients.

- Long lasting. It can last up to 5 hours with no eating. 
- Affordable for a very pigmented lipstick. Php 300 each.

- It as a sweet scent which I love. This is very subjective. Some has a thing for scented lippies and some just hate it.

- It stains the lips (even my hands after swatching haha). Again, this will depend if you think it's an awesome factor or not. 

- The label on the packaging is starting to fade. Not a biggie though.
- Every time I use it directly on my lips, it goes back inside the tube. So I used a lip brush instead.
- Not available in the leading department stores nationwide. You can always buy this online though.

Packaging/Apperance = 4.5/5
Effectiveness = 4.5/5
Availability = 4/5
Affordability = 5/5
OVERALL = 4.5/5

I love the product. It did not make my lips look bigger. I am definitely using this more often. This is the PERFECT RED LIPSTICK for me.

  1. Yea, that's one downfall of this product pero it won't go all the way inside naman. So now, I can use my lip brush na. I experienced na rin yung hindi na bumabalik pag tapos mo na gamitin yung product. Mas nakakainis yun. Haha!

  2. I don't wear red often too! But I'm gonna start too. It's just a matter of finding the right red shade, anyway. That red looks good on you :)

    On another note, don't you just hate it when the twist mechanism of lippy/stick product packaging is messed up? Haha nakakailang ganun na ako. I had one like this na pag pinpush ko sa lips ko, kusang nagttwist pababa yung lipstick. Sa stick products naman, common problem ko, pag ittwist to retract ko na yung product, hindi na bumabalik. hahaha

  3. Thanks Janine! I haven't tried orange lippies pa pala. I think I'll hunt my PERFECT ORANGE LIPSTICK naman. Haha! =)

  4. Glad you found the perfect red lippie for you! I like the name ha. ;) I love red lippies as much as I love nudes and pinks. :P orange ang kalovehate ko :))
