Even after all the eating, there was color left in the middle part of bottom lip.

Price: Php 140

Made in: the Philippines

Ingredients: Stevia Extract, Olive Oil, Refined Glycerin, Shea Butter, FD&C Colorant.

Staying power: Medium to Long. (Depends on factors: How often or what you ate/drank, did you wipe, how many layers swiped, etc.)

Scent: Strawberry (no bitter aftertaste).

Moisturizing: Did not dry out or chap my lips.

Is it organic: No Eco-cert. It contains FD&C (which stands for Food, Drug and Cosmetics) colorant. Food color that is used in the United States is either "Artificial" (also referred to as "Certified Color" or "FD&C Color" ) or so called “Natural Color”. Note that technically, the FDA considers all color additives “artificial” whether they originate from natural sources or are synthetic.

*The peach is more pigmented and long lasting than the brown. Plus I personally prefer the latter; I am not into browns.

This product is available in their stores in Batangas or in the online shop of facebook.com/tiksi.lensiii.

However...

The seller, Trixie Cusi, told me she will be sending the other shades for a complete review (the stocks just ran out prior). Since that will be the case, I asked that my order, Insta Shine and Calla lily Citronella candles be included then so shipping will be free. She agreed. So I paid her and remitted Php 270 thru  Palawan.

Usually, when I buy online, the product arrives just the following day. This one had taken 3+ weeks plus the seller sometimes does not reply, I had to repeat, and she had not been updating.

Timeline:

October 11 2017, I ordered Insta Shine and Calla lily Citronella candles and she said she will be shipping probably Saturday, October 14. I paid and sent her the deposit slip on October 13 4:38 PM. As of this writing, November 11, the products have not arrived and I have not been contacted yet. Safe to say, it ain't gonna come.

You be the judge:
Scammer seller philippines

bogus online seller philippines

Actually, I did not want to post this anymore but I deem I have an obligation to warn others and write an HONEST experience. After all, trust, like money, is hard earned!

I feel especially sad since I was planning to use the candles for All Soul's Day.  I am always open to communication and she can contact me if she wishes to express her side.

Will I recommend Matrix Cosmetics to others or buy again?
With my DISAPPOINTING experience, I don't think so. That's it, and thanks for reading!

***UPDATE NOVEMBER 14 2017:
We had a chat last November 4. She apologized and had a different explanation. If before, she blamed courier delay, now the new reasons were they changed into a new formula and that she was in the hospital for her uncle. She also asked if I can make a new review, and promised to send the order the NEXT DAY. It has been many months and it is now 2018, and still NOTHING!!! I really felt scammed!

    1. Ka sad kasi sis. Hindi ko alam if isusulat ko ba, pag hindi ko naman sinulat baka sisishin hindi ko blinog product. Wala na kasing sagot nakita mo naman sa chat, nagrireach out ako kaso NO RESPONSE. Patient naman ako at maiintindihan ko wag lang yung naiwan ang customer hanging.
