Review: Beauty Treats Lipstick in Pale Pink

I've had this for a year and I'm still ambivalent about it. Let me tell you why...

The packaging is nice. The lipstick can be seen from outside. I appreciate that they wanted to be different in terms of the shape but it can be a little bulky. 

Beauty Treat's lipstick in Pale Pink is THE PERFECT everyday pink lipstick for my skin tone. True to its name, it's a muted pink shade which I really love! I have not found a similar shade that wouldn't dry out my lips. I am obsessed with it! And frustrated. Like I said, ambivalence.

The formula is VERY creamy. Too creamy actually that it got detached from the tube! I had to melt the the side of the lipstick which connects with the tube, stick it back in and put it in the fridge for a few hours. Thankfully it worked!

I also dislike the scent. It smells like Sampaguita to me. Gaaaa! But it's not too bad when it's on the lips already. It lasts for a decent 2-4 hours. 

If I remember correctly I bought this for 350 pesos. Is it worth the price? I'm not sure. I am tempted to repurchase this just for the color. O_O

That's my love-hate relationship with this product. Do you know a lipstick with the same shade as this? Please save my pocket and let me know. :)
