The Japanese cosmetics brand Lillua launched a new collection of four “Oil Rich Tint” lipsticks on Monday (February 22). The brand is produced by Direct Tech in collaboration with the popular beauty YouTuber Saaya.

Lillua’s “Oil Rich Tint” is a line-up of glossy lipsticks with a tint effect. The products take into account the reality of wearing face masks everyday by being super easy to apply. They are made using an oil gel which spreads across the lips effortlessly and leaves them feeling soft. They also contain squalane, olive oil, and jojoba oil to moisturise the lips, making them look plump and soft. The collection features four types: 01 Mellow Pink, 02 Gala Deep Red, 03 Lut Terracotta, and 04 Peach Pig.
Oil Rich Tint | ¥1,450 (Before Tax)
01 Melon Pink
Not just simply cute and sweet – but a romantic pink with a faint dullness to it.
02 Gala Deep Red
Peak with the ever-popular deep red which captivates and captures a gaze in an instant.
03 Lut Terracotta
The nuanced colour of the orange-brown terracotta gives your lips a refined look.
04 Peach Pig
A beautifully joyous natural coral colour you’ll find yourself wanting to use everyday.
Every purchase via Lillua’s official website will gift members a free original postcard. Additionally, the first 1,500 people to order two or more items will receive an original Lillua pouch.
