I'm months behind on reviewing these, there was a lot of blog-love for these a few months ago, and, I can't deny it, I'm underwhelmed with them. A bit. The shades are lovely, and I adore the applicators, but ... I just can't get them to stain my lips for love nor money.
According to Twitter, it's my fault for making poor colour choices, but ... heck, I don't want to take the blame for a product not working on me, frankly! I have shades 3 (Brun Cachemire), 12 (Corail Fauve) and 5 (Rouge Vintage).
On initial application, the shades are beautiful, even the brown, which I usually find difficult to wear. This is thanks to it's purple undertones, which you should be able to see here:
So, we have a brown, a coral, and a pinky-red. I love the shades, and I love how they look on my lips. Some people have reported that they're very drying, I've never particularly had that problem with them, but this is my problem with them:
Can you see the stains? No? Me neither. They are there though, I promise you. These are billed as a glossy lip stain, I get the gloss, which I love, and I adore how pigmented they are, but I find they fade unevenly, and ... well ... the stain part is just non-existent!
