Stimmung Velvet Lip Tint QV CR001 was purchased by Cosmeperks.
If you have never heard about Stimmung before, you are not alone. I’m a huge fan of K-beauty but this is my first time hearing that there’s a K-beauty brand called Stimmung. I checked their website to find more information about them but it’s full of Korean word I can’t understand, so I tried searching on YouTube to see reviews about their products. Once again, I have no answer because almost all the reviews are either in Korean or Vietnamese.
Based on what I found, seems like Stimmung is an affordable beauty brands in Korea and while I’m not sure if they have a retail store, they have a website where you can purchase it directly. I don’t know if you can get from their website if you live outside Korea though but I was so lucky to be offered by Nigama to try it!
They have various products start from lips, eyes, cheeks, and even base makeup. The unique thing about them is how they package their product. All of the products are packaged in a pouch style packaging (like a jelly drink you can find on a convenience store) which is pretty new for a K-beauty brand.

Stimmung Velvet Lip Tint QV CR001 Review:
As I mentioned before, I think the pouch-style packaging is very new in Korean beauty brand. I mean I never see one until I got to know Stimmung. It’s fun to see something new but if I’m not mistaken, a lot of Thai beauty brands have their products in this type of packaging so maybe it’s safe to say that Stimmung was inspired by them and finally made their own pouch-style makeup.
The problem with this packaging is I don’t know how to store it. Because it’s wider yet thinner like a paper, I can’t keep it on my lipstick shelf. The only way to store it is by letting it lay flat on my vanity but based on my experience, lip products tend to separate (especially if it has oil in it) and it can affect the quality but I don’t know how to store it in other ways.
Packaging aside, the Stimmung Velvet Lip is no different with other lip products. It has a doe-foot applicator with a bit slanted shape on the tip area. It is supposed to make the application easy but I found that it doesn’t pick up enough product for my liking. I have to re-dip the wand over and over again. I have small lips so imagine the effort needed to apply it on a thicker or plumper lips.
Stimmung has 3 different lip products. There are velvet, glossy, and matte version but I chose the velvet one since I use velvet lip products the most for my daily routine. For the velvet category, now they have 23 shades available to choose from and what I like the most is how the majority of them are in natural shades so everyone can try it!
But not only natural shades, they also have mauves, reds, and oranges. The price for this velvet lip is very affordable so I really appreciate that even with the low price, they made more wearable shades than other brands with more expensive price range.
I chose shade CR001 which is a coral with warm undertone. This shade is so pretty! It gives me a soft, girly, yet won’t make my complexion looks pale. It’s a bit more coral than what they show on their website but maybe it’s because of my skin tone. On deeper skin tone, this shade may look too light but on fair to medium skin tone, it can be you MLBB shade.
The pigmentation is not the best because I have to apply 2 – 3 layers to show the true color on my lips. I don’t have pigmented lips so if you do have one, you will need more than 3 layers to make the shade looks more vivid. It is not the best shade if you want to make a gradient lips because the shade is too light, it can make your lips look pale and unattractive so I highly recommend to choose a deeper shade if you want to make a gradient lips.
Before applying this product, you will need to prepare your lips first by using a very moisturizing lip balm because if your lips are flaky, it will emphasize those areas and the application won’t be smooth. After application, avoid smacking your lips together at least until it sets because if you smack your lips while the lip cream is still wet, it can make your lips look patchy.
The good thing is that it feels lightweight, as if you didn’t wear anything on your lips. When I swatch it for the first time, I can already tell that the texture will be light because as you can see on the picture, the swatch on my arm shows that the lip cream is a bit transparent and not a fully velvet finish. Stimmung claim that it has a velvet finish but after wearing it all day, it never set and the finish is purely a satin finish.
It’s not transfer-proof but it’s not easily transfer anywhere either. When I touch my lips with my finger, I didn’t see any stain but when I drank with a straw/ a glass, I can see my lip mark on it. But just like any other lip product with satin finish, it will fade away right after I eat something oily. If I didn’t eat anything, it will last for about 3 hours on my lips so the longevity is definitely not too impressive.
In my opinion, it’s a good lip product if you want something natural and not too heavy on the budget. I love wearing it if I have some errands to do or if I need something to make my lips not look pale. It is also a perfect shade to wear if you are working and need something light to brighten up your complexion.
Even though it has poor lasting power, I can accept it because of the very affordable price. If you want to try it too, please do! As each product can work differently on different people, I think it can perform better (or maybe worse) on you.
