This is definitely something I decided to give a go simply because of how random it is and I thought it’d be fun to play with. I also managed to convince my boyfriend for a while that I was going to start wearing green lipstick, which was pretty funny!
I love how sleek the packaging of this is. It’s so luxury feeling and the lid slides on almost magnetically meaning that it will not fall off in your bag!
The lipstick itself is super moisturizing and feels more like a lip balm rather than a lipstick. It hydrates and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. I use about two swipes, which I find is enough to get the color to develop nicely. It turns into this sheer berry shade, which is very natural and wearable with a huge range of looks. It’s easy to top up during the day if you want to but it also does leave a nice stain on the lips, making them look naturally flushed.
(Please excuse the bad quality, my camera was not working 🙁 )
The fact that it’s moisturizing is definitely the big winner for me as I love lip balms and I find I can easily substitute them with this. I think it’s a cool idea and if you have a chance then definitely swatch it and see for yourself how it transforms!
