Urban Dollkiss is a brand that I have never heard of until I purchased them on Beauteque. Prior to purchasing it, I didn’t check to see any reviews but I did find a few (delicatedesire, polishedcryptids). The reviews were a bit mixed, one didn’t like it, the other one did. I do find myself a bit silly to never check reviews before buying a product, but I really liked the colour shown on Beauteque. I always wanted a coral and cute pink colour that gave your lips a more natural look, and that’s what it looked like! I tried one of them on recently, and I already had a couple dissatisfying thoughts about them.

Love the packaging, smooth, supposedly moisturizes (moreso for #08)
PATCHY, sinks into lip lines, can be drying (#02), need to apply several layers otherwise you can’t get the full colour
Will I buy it again
Nope, patchy lipsticks are…ugggh.
‘Smooth and moisturizing lipstick in colors that pop. Argan Oil and Macadamia Seed Oil moisturize lips as vitamin extracts nourish.‘
The lipstick comes in nice box with a sticker seal indicating what shade of lipstick is inside. I actually quite like the packaging that the lipstick is in! The lid snaps itself easily back onto the lipstick and its quite nice to hold it in your hand. I don’t know – it’s just a really nice, well packaged lipstick lol. ; u ;
I did find some colour discrepancy from the sticker on the bottom and the actual colour of the lipstick. I think the shades are actually a lot darker than the sticker itself when you first open the product. They look like a pastel colour on the sticker, but it’s actually not close to pastel at all? The orange shade (#02) did look pastel-ish on my lips but that really depends on the pigmentation of your natural lip colour. It could vary from people to people. The lipstick shape is more wide compared to the ones I have from MAC, Sephora and Etude House – but it applied quite nicely on my lips, easier for lip noobs like me to control haha

Nice jello-like fragrance – doesn’t bother me at all!
I really love swatching things. hohoho. Here’s a closer look at what the two shades look like under light. I layered them a few times to get out its full colour. I noticed that it feels quite smooth, probably from the Argan and Macadamia oil, but when you look at the lipstick itself it looks like it can pass off as a matte lipstick. It’s not that shiny in person, but when you use it you can tell its a shiny, soft lipstick. Note: these also leave a slight tint on your lips and pretty much anywhere you put it!!
The shades reminded me of other lipsticks that I had so I swatched them to see if they looked any more similar or different! I compared shade #08 to Etude House’s Dear My Wish Lips Talk PK003 and shade #02 to Sephora’s Rouge Shine 4145A No. 26 (which I made a post on a while back). You can see the textural difference between the 3 Korean lipsticks and the Sephora one, but also how much more even the Etude House lipstick is compared to the Baviphat ones (that’s what I thought at least!)
So of course, excited me – when I realized these leave a slight tint, I thought I would try the gradient lip on my lips. (I’m not very good at it as you can see!) I quite like the shape of the lipstick – it’s more flat and wide which made it a lot easier to apply in the corners of my lips, and getting that nice shape around the cupid’s bow. But I did like how shade #08 gives you a natural pinky gradient look, while shade #02 doesn’t even look like it made a difference. I noticed that this lipstick especially #02 sinks into the lines of your lips. Sadly, it is also REALLY patchy. It kind of emphasizes the dead skin and dryness of your lips more.. I wonder if the formula is different between #02 and #08 or if its just the colour, because #08 didn’t sink into the lines of my lips as much as #02 did. For some reason #02 was also a lot more drying compared to #08. hmm..
I wouldn’t say its a super smooth application on my lips. It was a lot easier and smooth to apply and get colour when I put lip balm on though. It bothers me so much that its patchy. I also clearly picked the wrong shade – I thought #02 would be a closer to an orange colour when I looked on the Beauteque site, but its got this edgy look to it. Not a bad shade, but not great either.
The formula seems a bit inconsistent between the two, one is more drying than the other. I do like the colours of the shades and how smooth it is when I swatch them, but when a lipstick is PATCHY.. that’s a definite nono. It’s not very smooth when you apply this lipstick on the lips. The colours are definitely poppin’ though (me trying to be cool.. ; u ;) I’m not very happy with shade #02, maybe I’ll figure out a way to use it all up, maybe mix it with some other lipsticks that I’m totally meh about and turn it into some pretty colour. I definitely would not recommend getting these though, because there are a lot of other brands with similar shades that don’t leave your lips looking messy because of the dreaded patchiness.
