I wanted to share my thoughts on these lipsticks for other lipstick lovers out there, these are a must have. The stand out of these lipsticks was the formula they're all really creamy and leave a really nice satin finish which didn't dry out my lips even after prolonged wear. The lasting power of these lipsticks is also really good especially for a 'drugstore' brand. I found I only had to re apply in minor spots a few times during the night when I wore the purple one. As for the range of shades they have nine to choose from ranging from dark berries to nude. I'm quite pleased with the shades I received and they do have a really good colour payoff. One coat in some of these is plenty, but if you like more they're easily buildable without going cakey. I'm also in love with the packaging it's so sleek and minimal, but the signature in red makes it look much more classy.
- Great colour range - nice and bright
- Decent price of $12 - 15 AUD
- Really Pigmented
- Lasting finish
- Creamy satin finish
- Sleek packaging
- Buildable colour
- Easy enough to remove
- Scent is really fruity/candyish
- As you can see from the photos you don't get too much product in the tube (I've only ever worn each of them once at most so far)
I give this lipstick a solid 8 out of 10, and I wouldn't definitely buy a lot more given the chance and when I run out of my favourite shades.
Below are some tips and must have items for a lipstick wearer!
1. Paw Paw Ointment, 2. Lush Lip Scrubs, 3. Cotton Tips, 4. Lipstick (duh!)
I find it's best even if you don't have noticeable dry patches to always exfoliate your lips before using lipstick no matter what the formula. I love using the lush ones because they smell really nice and taste like sugar. I have the Bubblegum and the Pow Wow, I much prefer the Bubblegum as Lush hasn't quite perfected the formula of the Pow Wow as the top of mine when I opened it was rock hard. So after you exfoliate you will want to sink some moisture into your lips I use Paw Paw Ointment but you can use any chap stick or lip balm that works for you. The next step is to apply lipstick you can use a brush and liner if you need but I never have any to match the shades of lipstick I own (I need to get some) but I usually just apply straight from the tube and use the cotton tips to fix up anywhere where you may have gone outside the lines of your lips.
I hope you all enjoyed this review and my tips for wearing lipstick! I'm off to Sydney tomorrow to see A A Bondy at the Sydney festival and Megan and I will probably take some OOTD to put up here when we get back. Hope you're all have a great day!
