Made in Japan, this Maybelline lipstick from years back surpassed many high-end ones that were produced during its time, thanks to its smooth quality and refined texture.
I can’t remember when it was introduced but I do remember being pleasantly surprised when I learnt that it was made in Japan. I was later able to try another lipstick from the same range but made in the US – it was gritty and didn’t wear well. Proof once more of Japanese superiority in makeup production!
I’ve fond memories of Jewel Berry – I loved its flattering purply-pink tone and copious shimmer. It’s since gone to makeup heaven but it’s nice to have this post to remind me of its prettiness and the happy makeup times it’d given me. :)
