Miso Pretty. I hate to be the hater here as I usually find something great in my purchases (since they are normally researched prior to investment, obviously, which is why I write a lot of lengthy reviews myself - so others can get various viewpoints). But here, the one star is for the one good thing I have to say about this product: the color - when swatched on my hand at Ulta where it was an impulse purchase. Miso Pretty is an awesome color (on my hand). It’s a pale peach that’s not light enough to offend those who despise the dreaded “concealer lip” dead corpse nude lip (I love that though ha), as it has a universally flattering pale pinky peach depth to it. It would be pretty on cool, warm, or neutral skin from alabaster to ebony. I say I love the color when swatched because the moment it touches the lip, all heads south. I use any and every type of lip product imaginable from gloss to good ol lipstick to any matte liquidy thing. The matte liquidy things can go either way. You really need to nail a precise formula to make it great 5-star (Rihanna did it with stunna, ciate glitter flip, maybelline matte inks are 3 off top of head). This fails in every way. My lips are never ever dry so putting on a MAC retro matte and powdering it won’t affect me - dryness is not the issue at all. Here are some though: It is not opaque enough. It goes on patchy. It dries unevenly. It doesn’t have anything close to a decent wear time (not that I want it to, since it sucks on application). The color doesn’t translate on lip as on hand swatch. It is ugly. It cracks instantly - which I do forgive some lipsticks for (ie Mercier velour mattes aren’t liquids they are thick lipsticks, so creases are easily blended away and remain un-creased). It chunks somehow cuz my lips don’t have dead skin. I have tried everything under the sun as a base - from balm to foundation to liners etc.... every time I’ve had to put something over it and that fails more. All issues above (& more I’m probably forgetting) magnified when anything on top. I cannot do my slight lip over-lining trick, since, again, issues. My smoker lip lines aren’t really a problem anymore since retin a, but I’m certain it would migrate and feather. The normal biological human function of salivation causes the center inside to fade in seconds. It smears. Rant over. Game over.
