Having generated a buzz through social media platforms all across China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan back in 2019, this rosy lip colour trend inspired by the naturally-sweet ingredient has now become a go-to shade for many.

If you’ve been a fan of the luscious “red bean paste” lip look for a while now, we’ve got a new lippie for you to add to your collection.

The Unlocked Satin Creme Lipstick in the shade 328 Cypress by Hourglass features a gorgeous deep pink colour that wears slightly darker than your traditional MLBB (my lips but better) 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 up 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 touchups.

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.

If you’re looking for an everyday lipstick that won’t wash you out, give this one a go.

Hourglass Unlocked Satin Creme Lipstick in 328 Cypress retails for S$66 and is available at Sephora.
