face of australia limited edition sheer gloss lip crayons. rrp $14.95. i got it quite a while ago when all foa products are 20% off at priceline.
i've been wanting to get my hands on clinique chubby sticks. but at aud$35 each, it's out of my budget. i'm glad when i saw face of australia came out with something similar. and... at a fraction of the price!
some said it's a dupe of clinique chubby sticks. i don't own any clinique chubby sticks, so i can't compare the two.
it comes in pack of 3 wearable colors macaron (pink red), cupcake (pink) and sundae (brown).
a closeup look of the colors.
they come in wind-up applicator. just twist the bottom to get products out. no sharpening required.
color swatched at the back of my hand with 2-3 swipes. the colors are sheer and subtle.
i love these lip crayons!
it has a light yummy fragrance, which goes away very quickly.
i like that it's quite moisturizing. unless my lips are really dry, i don't need to prep my lips with lip balms.
because it's basically very sheer, i do not expect staying power with these. the color is gone after a drink.
you can get slightly more opaque color with more layers, but i don't like the feeling of too much products on my lips. i get these for their sheerness.
because my lips are quite pigmented, the colors only shows up as subtle hint of color. my favorite is macron and sundae. cupcake does not show up any color at all on my lips.
i quite like them for simple natural looks. perfect for summer / spring.
these are limited edition. they were released a few months ago. if want to try them and if you spot them, get them and get them now! i mean, don't even think if you should get them or not, because i don't see much of them lying around anymore. they'll be gone while you're thinking!
i wish face of australia will make these into permanent line with more color choices.
i got my little helper to swatch these on her lips, because her lips are less pigmented and the color shows up better. only 1 layer of product was applied.
before you said anything about kids should not be wearing makeup etc etc etc. she's not allowed to wear makeup, but i do allow her to have some fun with subtle lip colors occassionally. this will stop her from playing (and destroying) with my makeup.
