Hi Dolls~ Today I want to you show you a beautiful lipstick from YBF (Your Best Friend) Cosmetics.
This is the Royalty Collectible Pewter Lipstick in Princess Pink. a very great name, just look at the packaging! It is certainly fir for a princess.
This is $28.80 on the YBF website. It is also available in Royalty Red.
Princess Pink is a frosty, barbie pink. It is very girly and very flirty.
I was worried that the lipstick would be drying or make my lips look chapped because it is so frosty. But it applies very smoothly. The staying power is okay. It lasts about 2-3 hours on me, but it does fade really well on my lips. Once it is really faded, it leaved behind pretty shimmers. :D
The lipstick does have a faint smell, can't really say what smell it has, but it doesn't bother me. If you are sensitive to smells, you might want to be careful.
The packaging is the best part of the lipstick, to be honest! It definitely has weight to it, which I persosnally love. It really stands out among my other lipsticks! It looks so cool, chic, and very medieval. I did have one problem with it though, but I am not sure if its just my tube. When I retract the lipstick, there is a slight resistance of the lipstick to go down. It is not a huge problem, because the lipstick does retract, but it can be a little annoying at times. Thought I should point that out. Other than that, I simply adore the packaging! I wish more companies would be creative with their packaging.

Here I attempted to make a very squared version of a triforce with the three pictures above. ^^ Epic fail.
The price is a little steep, but the packaging is mostly what you will be paying for. If you look at high end brands that have awesome packaging, the price range is usually like $40-$60. Since the lipstick is actually pretty darn good, I good say that $29 bucks is not all that bad. Of course, if you don't care for the packaging, I would advise you to stay away from this lipstick. I was surprised that I liked this a lot, since I don't usually like frosty lipsticks. But I love how this looks on my lips, and it is a great sophisticated color for me. I actaully really want the Royalty Red, which is the red version on this lipstick.
Do you like the packaging?
