My Verdict

Anahilwa is an Arabic word. 'Ana' means 'I/me' and 'Hilwa' means 'Sweet' but usually in Arab we use to use this phrase to praise someone who's pretty and beautiful. Anahilwa known for its super affordable prices and unique color range. All the names of Anahilwa products kept after a name of the gulf countries and the shade I got is 08 Khamis Mushait, which is a city situated in South-West of Kingdom of Saudia Arabia.

08 Khamis Mushait is a gorgeous soft brown shade with a very faint hint of pink undertone but, when applied on lips it appears as Peachy Coral that leans towards brown somehow which looked utterly beautiful and makes it ideal for fall season but, I love wearing it in spring cause of the fresh warm color. The shade is intense very intense hence truely representing Arabic style as most of the makeup regardless it's lipstick or eye shadows or eyeliner or foundation, all are highly pigmented and having very intense color that is the reason why it goes opaque just in one swipe and you can layer it off if you want more intense color depending what you desire.

The lipstick is so moisturizing and has a buttery soft and creamy texture that allows the product to slide over lips smoothly and effortlessly without highlighting those fine lines but, still I'll suggest that you to apply a thin film of lip balm underneath to avoid any disappointments if you have very dry/flaky lips. The formula is so light weight that I'm not wearing anything on lips which means apply and forget that you have something on your lips that is a huge plus in my opinion as I hate product that feels heavy on my lips. The finish is not matte nor a super glossy either it's some what in between which I'll call it semi-matte as it gives semi-matte finish with a very subtle glossy sheen that is not so over-powering.

Since it has a creamy texture and moisturizing properties my expectations were already high when it comes to and I'm glad it didn't disappoint me here too. I'll not say it has superb staying power, but for me it was there on my lips for good 4-5 hours without eating/drinking/re-touching after that it starts fading away and dispose off evenly without depositing clumps on lips and around the margins that I hate the most.

Over all I'd say I'm in love with them and got couple of other shades and can't wait to try them. If you are living in Middle East and have Mikyajy counter nearby I'd definetely say you must check them out. They are amazing considering their price.
