BBIA Red Series 2 Matte Lipstick. Scam or not?

Scrolling through Tumblr I came across this Korean brand of lipstick called BBIA. I’m loving Matte lately and was in the market for a new matte lipstick so I thought why not. After doing some Googling I couldn’t find a BBIA website which made me all the more suspicious about this brand. Is it a scam?

I went on to Yesstyle.com, a website that ships Asian cosmetics to Australia and found BBIA Red Series 2 on there and gave it a shot. It was only $10 AUD. I found this kind of strange. Why so cheap? First no official website and it’s dirt cheap. This has to be too good to be true. Convinced that it was most likely a scam I only bought One shade, #7 dreamlike. It took a whopping 6 weeks to come which was a pain.

The packeting was cute but felt very cheap. The colour also came in peach…. it was nothing like what I thought I ordered. It was still shade #7 but looked very different from the online pictures. I still gave it a shot.

Peachy AF!

The colour was very nice and pigmented and it did last a long time. It was very drying sadly and had a weird cheap waxy taste. I’m pretty glad that I didn’t buy the whole set since it was a bit of a letdown.

Final Thoughts
Price-
10/10
Review- 5/10
Would I buy it again? Yeah, no. Whilst the colour pay off is nice I’d prefer to pay for a better quality lipstick that isn’t drying.

Until next time my lovely xxx
