No Malaysian can resist gula melaka in our drinks and desserts, and now we’re going to put it out there: we can’t resist a lipstick that reminds us of gula melaka syrup too.
The Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm in Trace is trending on social media and for good reason. This lippie gives your lips a glazed appearance and a touch of pinkish-brown hue, it looks as if you have just dipped those lips into gula melaka syrup.
Highly glossy but not sticky, this 3-in-1 hybrid product nourishes and hydrates like a lip balm, visibly plumps for fuller-looking lips, and delivers the high-shine finish of a lip gloss.
Wear it alone as a hydrating treatment for your lips or on top of your favourite lipstick to add an eye-catching shine to your pout; this makes your lips look incredibly juicy and definitely kissable.
This also contains menthyl lactate to give you an instant cooling sensation while you achieve fuller-looking lips.
As if its gorgeous shade and finish doesn’t impress you enough, this lipstick also has a gorgeous appearance: a sleek pen in gold that you can slip into your party clutch effortlessly.
Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm in Trace retails for RM170, available at Sephora.
