Popularised by celebrities and influencers all across China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, the “red bean paste” lip colour trend inspired by the sweet ingredient has become a staple in the beauty routines of many, due to its wearable nature.

Looking to hop on the “red bean paste” lip bandwagon but just can’t seem to figure out the right shade to add to your collection? We may have just found the perfect one from Hourglass for you to try.

The Unlocked Satin Creme Lipstick in the shade 328 cypress by Hourglass features a gorgeous rose colour that wears a tad darker than your traditional MLBB products.

As swatched and worn by Xiao Hong Shu user Little Lion 33, you can tell just how creamy and hydrating the formula is.

Just one swipe will give you that natural-looking lip colour you’re after, and you can also layer it on for a deeper and bolder look. It glides on easily and has a fairly good lasting power, allowing you to go about your day with little to no touch-ups.

Fans of this red bean paste lipstick have commented on how it doesn’t feel drying on the lips and has a “balmy” feel. Packed with essential oils, it’s easy to see how this satin lipstick will give you the classic K-beauty glossy effect without sacrificing comfort.

We’re also loving the sleek and elegant packaging it comes in. The square-shaped gold tubes feature a simple engraved rabbit logo at the end along with a magnetic closure, enabling you to keep them in your purse without worrying about potential accidents.
