When I was little, my mom had only two lipsticks. One didn’t have a brand name on it at all (it probably rubbed off), and the other was a cheap Kiki brand (if it was even real, could have been a knock off). Our lives are totally different now, living in the USA and actually getting paid fairly for our work, so it’s time to upgrade our makeup too. I decided to try a more luxury lip product this time, and got one for my mom as well.
The History of Whoo Luxury Lip Rouge (mine is in the color 13 Rose Brown) attracted me with its packaging. It has an air of luxury and comes with a cute little lip brush attached to the lid by a small chain. The lid underlay matches the chosen lip rouge color. When my dad saw it, he said it looked like something a first class passenger on Titanic would own (side note - I wish my dad and husband would write their own reviews, because the things they come up with are pure gold).

How to use
Apply to the lips as you would any lipstick
Use the included brush for a more precise application
In addition to being decorative makeup, The History of Whoo lip rouge promises anti aging benefits and is infused with ingredients to improve blood flow. A full list of components is provided at the end of the review. The lipstick has a faint, pleasant scent and no taste.
This is so nice. It’s almost too nice for me to own; I’m not used to fancy makeup like this. The lipstick is very nourishing and not at all drying. It does a decent job camouflaging any dry patches on my lips and not exacerbating the issues further.
The History of Whoo lip rouge isn’t particularly long lasting and will rub off on cups and people, but some still remains even after maltimes or coffee. The color fades evenly, so if you don’t want to reapply throughout the day, you still don’t have to worry about patchy looking lips.
I love the shade - it’s noticeable on my lips but isn’t intimidating / doesn’t require super precise application like reds do. I don’t find myself using the brush at all - I tried it once but that was it. It was a little hard to the touch at first but softened up under my fingers. Still, it’s not the most practical thing since ideally I like to clean brushes after every use. It just becomes a hassle. But it’s still a very cute element of the package as a whole.
Overall, I’m quite pleased (and my mom is as well). Are there nice lipsticks with a smaller price tag? Sure. But I’m not mad about this one at all.
