I received this in my March Her Fashion Box, and I will admit to being disappointed initially, as orange really isn't my colour, on my lips, on my clothes or just really me at all.
That said, given that they're currently priced at around $3.50, and were $2.50 mid last year, I figured I didn't have anything to lose by at least trying the formula out, so that if I liked it, I could at least get it in a different colour.
I'm glad I did, because this is actually a decent colour on me!
The first thing that hit me was how similar the packaging was to that of the Revlon Lip Butters, and I'm sure people always think this! That said, the packaging definitely feels cheaper. While this is quite a bright orange, I have found that this to be excellent for days when there's a need to be more daring.
I found that when I first swiped this, the texture was a little waxy and the colour pay off wasn't great, but the more I used it, the easier it was to glide it over my lips, and while not highly pigmented, it is quite decent, particularly for the price. Wear time tends to be around 2 hours or so.
While not a moisturising as certain other lip products, this doesn't dry out my lips too much. I have been able to make it work a little harder by putting a bit of lip balm on my lips just before going over it with the lipstick.
Despite initial reservations, I have to say, trying this lipstick certainly got me interested in the rest of the range! With about 19 other colours to pick from, there's going to be something for everyone.
Have you tried this before? What colour is your favourite?
