Issy & Co.’s reimagined Bullet Lipstick is available in three must-have finishes
Homegrown brand Issy & Co. reimagines the classic bullet lipstick with the newly launched Lip Bullet (P349), a product three years in the making. Available in 21 ultra-flattering shades and three must-have finishes—True Matte, True Velvet and True Satin—you’ll surely find a match for you!
Issy & Co.’s take on the beloved classic also features a one-of-a-kind shape that makes application easier and more precise. Encased in a sleek metal casing, which acts as a mirror, you can do your touch-ups anytime, anywhere. (Yes, even inside a moving car!)
“The brand has always been and will always be about inclusivity, which, for us, is all about having options, not conforming and celebrating individuality,” reveals Joel Andrade, the brand’s Creative Director.
He further adds, “We acknowledge that you can only do so much with one finish, which is why we decided to offer three—each with its own unique features but having the common denominators of being lightweight and buildable.”
The True Matte is packed with intense pigments, dressing the lips with bold color in one smooth swipe. Its pigment-locking sensation makes it truly matte and long-wearing. The seven shades under True Matte are Renaissance (a triumphant brown), Fresco (a painterly nude), Saint (a divine peach), Muse (a poetic pink), Brutal (a cold-blooded red), Revenge (a wrathful red) and Opus (a magnificent rose).
Next is the True Velvet finish, which smoothens and blurs the lips. With its color intensity toned down from a typical matte lipstick, the lips are given a soft-focus finish. The shades under this formula are Ingénue (an innocent nude), Bisou (an erotic mauve), Camp (a shocking pink), Decollete (a timeless rose), Beret (an arresting brown), Pose (a legendary brown) and Motif (a melodic peach).
Finally, True Satin delivers understated luxe and polish through its sheer formula and hydrating color. It can also be built up to one’s desired intensity. With this finish, the lips can be clocked with Nouveau (a modern pink), Rococo (a sugary rose), Nudity (a naked beige), Seraph (a heavenly nude), Beau (a boyish nude), Ballroom (a lavish mauve) and Promenade (a popular brunette).
Rediscover the joy of swiping! There really is something for everyone from Issy & Co.’s 21-piece collection.
