These sticks are similar in size to the Tarte Lipsurgence pencils. The packaging is all plastic, and what I really love is these are mechanical and retractable! You can simply twist up more product by turning the silver part at the bottom, or retract product the same way. Very convenient!
The first shade I chose is Sweetheart, a true bright pink.
I noticed that the colors in this collection are more on the dark/bright side. I didn't see too many light colors available. For me, this isn't a line I would turn to if I was looking for a neutral everyday lip color.
The second shade I chose is Honey, a plum color that I felt would be a bit more wearable than Sweetheart.
As for the consistency, these are nice and balmy on the lips. They are exceptionally pigmented, and they do stain. It literally took a day and a half to get swatches off of my hand. On the lips they seemed not to stain as permanently, but on nude skin it was very noticeable! If you want color that will last all day, these are for you.
Now for lip swatches!
Do you prefer wearing one lip color all day, or switching it up as the day goes on? I like switching from day to night colors!
