Do you ever look at Snow White and think “bitch, no one has lips that naturally rosy red, who are you fooling?” Well, if you too are insane like me and have thought that, this is the product for you!
As I mentioned yesterday, I went on a bit of a drugstore spree (I paid, no five finger discount for us upstanding citizens!) and since I’ve recently got into lip stuff, I snagged this gem.
I went for the Juicy Peach (option farthest on the left) shade. I am super into peachy, cool orange hues right now and this is such a great color for daily wear and summery weather. It also doesn’t wash me out and I am as pale as they come. On top of being a light color coverage, this stick smells yummy AND, as the name implies, moisturizes. I have just started using to so I cannot yet speak to the longer term softening effects but supposedly in three days you should see a difference. Stand by for an update!
As for shade options, here’s what you’re working with:
It’s a cute little chubby stick that you smear on your face. I tend to forget I’m an adult and always feel like I’m playing with my mum’s makeup whenever I put lipstick on. This is just like the NARS Velvet Lip Pencil but SO much easier. Since the color is sheer, just giving the hint of pink or reds, you don’t have to worry too much about application BUT definitely use a mirror.
One other benefit of stick form is that it does not require sharpening but instead you can get more by turning the little silver nub on the bottom. Rejoice – it’s one less item to carry around with you!
Being real nitpicky here but I’m drinking coffee right now and there is a lovely peach stain around the rim. No, that isn’t exclusive to this product, but I do drink a fair amount of coffee/water throughout the day and don’t particularly love sipping at my lip color residue.
All that being said, I have a new lip affair love in the form of this product and highly highly recommend it.
