Matte Lip Coat Instead Of Matte Lipstick? BLP's Lip Coat in Persimmon Pie


A few while back, the beauty blogger world of Indonesia was shaken by the launching of a new matte lip product, lip coat, created by MUA-slash-beauty blogger, Lizzie Parra. Okay, maybe that was a hyperbole but seriously, almost every beauty blogger reviewed and raved about this lip coat which claimed to finish off matte but still moisturize the lips well. If you follow my posts here, you might have known that I'm not really into matte lips since my lips get dry pretty easily. I was very excited to try this BLP's Lip Coat so how was the result? I might be kinda late in the review game but it doesn't hurt to read my opinions, right?

So maybe its time you need to look serious for a meeting, or you just feel like today is a day you want to show others "who's the boss" (it's you, we know). A dark mauve for the special occasion of being a badass.

To use: apply evenly to your entire lips.




What I love the most in packaging? Simplicity.
I love simple and minimalist design and the packaging of BLP's Lip Coat has stolen my heart. If I were to have an ideal type on cosmetic's packaging, BLP's would be on the list. I especially love how the box combines pink and white color and I love how the cap locked in nicely to make sure there would not be any case of spilling. It's pretty lightweight, sturdy, and not to mention, the dove-matte transparent body really depicts the matte finish of the lip coat.


Lizzie Parra surely done her job well in creating the packaging plus the applicator of BLP's Lip Coat. The slanted and slim applicator ensures precise and neat application of the lip coat.


Lip products mostly has this disgusting wax scent but BLP's Lip Coat has sweet candy-like scent which made me want to eat it. However, the scent is quite strong which you might want to consider if you dislike sweet scent.
The color pigmentation of BLP's Lip Coat is nice enough. All you need is one swipe to get the color out and pop. The texture itself is pretty creamy and you'll need to wait about a minute before the lip coat sets and turns matte.


P.S. do excuse my not-so-pretty teeth ><

The shade Persimmon Pie is a dark mauve shade with pinkish-brown undertone. BLP's Lip Coat's shades range mostly on nude shades, dark shades, and some pop-vibrant shades which are not my everyday color. Even I've never had any lipstick or lip tint or lip gloss in the shade Persimmon Pie itself. I feel like nude and mauve shades don't suit me very well, I personally think I could make this shade work on me, though this shade makes me look pale sometimes.
Formula-wise, it's not as moisturizing as it claimed to be on my lips. Perhaps, it's because of my naturally dry lips? Well, you can see that my lips get chapped on the photo above albeit having my lips exfoliated beforehand and yes, it kinda sank on my lip lines. Nevertheless, BLP's Lip Coat still keeps the moisture on my lips better than any other few matte lipsticks I've tried previously.
On the contrary, for a lip products with matte finish, it doesn't stay quite long. BLP's Lip Coat stays up to 4 hours without eating and the color will fade on the inner side of the lips after having a meal. Another thing is, it transfers like literally everywhere, which is a pity.

Lovely packaging
Nice candy-like scent

Not moisturizing enough
Transfer everywhere
Sank into my lip lines
Limited range of shades

Ratings: 3,5/5

I would love to repurchase if BLP adds new shades like coral or pink.
