Za Plumper Lips Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hi guys!

Here are the swatches for the Za Plumper Lips lipsticks 膠原豐潤唇膏 =)  Not really a review since I really don't have that much to say about them. Very moisturizing and gives a very hydrated, shiny/watery finish. I simply adore the formula ^_^ And I don't know why but these lipsticks tend NOT to get on my teeth??? I had that problem with Revlon lip butters and other lipsticks, but I haven't noticed that with these. Maybe because I apply them differently??

My favorite application for these lipsticks is apply directly from the tube, blend and sheer out with my finger, then pat a little bit of lipstick on the middle part of my lips for more color pay-off.

I own four of them. Left to right are 01, 04, 08, and 10. I threw the packaging away so I no longer have the English names =( The Chinese names on them are 耀眼寶石, 薔薇酒紅, 繽紛櫻桃, and 咖啡酒紅 respectively.


From bottom to top: 01, 04, 08, 10.

Very shiny finish.


Bare lips. So much discoloration around my mouth lol.
Ever since I got into lipsticks I always feel like I look like a dead zombie (dead zombie? haha as if zombies aren't already dead) without any lip color. Lol.

Color 01 (耀眼寶石)
So at first I was very hesitant to purchase this color because of the visible glitters. The good thing is that the glitters are so fine that I don't even feel them. The bad thing is that when the lipstick wears off, you can see the glitters stuck to the lips -_-
While the lipstick looks really dark in tube, it comes out quite sheer. This was after several swipes.

It does make my lips look quite plump, and I have to admit the glitters in this lipstick makes the finish looks quite luxurious.
01 and 08 are quite similar except 01 has glitters and 08 is more pink/brighter.

Color 04 (薔薇酒紅)

04 is a nude pink.

I thought I was going to love this color but it's my least favorite among the 4. With that said I'm not saying I don't like it, but in general I just don't prefer nude. Also I'm not sure if it's because of the color, but I did find that this lip color tend to accentuate my dry lips more than the other ones. Not too bad but more noticeable than the others.

I think this will be a great color for smokey eyes because it still has some color and doesn't completely wash you out.

Color 08 (繽紛櫻桃)

08 reminds me a bit of Revlon Lip Butter in 050 Berry Smoothie, but Za 08 has more purple than Revlon.


I ADORE this color!

Color 10 (咖啡酒紅)

Really love this brown, tawny red. I think it gives a very elegant, sophisticated look ^_^



Overall I am very impressed with the quality of these lipsticks. I bought each for $10 USD, so if you can find these somewhere around that price, I'd say you found a good vendor!

Hope some of you found this post helpful/interesting ^_^

  1. this is a brand I'd like to try but cann't find where they sell it = (
