REVIEW & SWATCHES: ROLLOVER REACTION DI KALA SENJA

This month, during Java island’s electricity black out, I attended the launch event of Rollover Reaction’s latest collaboration with Putri Marino, famous Indonesia’s actress who also wrote a killer poem on her IG. And the illustrator behind it is Rachel Ajeng, famous illustrator-painter.

So, what’s in the collection? Well, Di Kala Senja actually embodies sunset, just like Putri’s personalities: bright, warm and genuine. That’s why this collection features two new shades to add to Rollover Reaction’s Chunky! Lip Crayon (read my previous review here). Only the outer packagings are different from the previous Chunky! But the lip crayon inside is the same black matte pencil. And mind you, these are limited edition collection, so better get them before they ran out.

Since I’ve talked about the texture and finish about Chunky! Already, let’s just jump right in to the shades and swatches.

KALA: This is my favorite shade, it’s a nude brown with a hint of orange.
SENJA: It’s a deep terracotta red shade.

Somehow, these both lip shades look darker in real life. By the way, you can use these as cheek tint, too if you’re a master of doing it. I have to admit I am suck at doing other blush format than powder. So, I am using these strictly as my lip color only.

PACKAGING
Sleek black matte crayon tube. When in a rush, it’s kind of hard to open and twist the cap open. But, I love how the tip is round and chubby, I believe it’s easier to draw along the cupid lines.

PRICE
IDR 625K for a set of five, and sold separately at IDR 125K each

carloCarlo is a coral nude (my favorite to use on eyelids, the sheerest of them all)

HOW TO APPLY
Our fingers are the best tool, trust me! Apply directly on lips and cheeks then blend with fourth finger. On lids, take some with your index finger and tap along the eyelids.

FEEL & TEXTURE
Lately, I was not in the mood for liquid matte lipstick, so these are the winner for me. It has satin finish but not shiny, feel very moist but ain’t greasy. I applied lip balm for swatches above, but I feel if you want to skip, it won’t be drying. They are not long-lasting, but if you like stain, these will leave a nice-looking stain after awhile.
