May time last year I was contacted by KissCosmetics to see if would like to try their SheerStick in Fresh Rose* and I really liked it. I reviewed it here. Not long ago KissCosmetics changed its name to Saturated Colour Cosmetics and they expanded their product range too. They kindly contacted me again asking if I’d like to try a couple more bits and as I loved the SheerStick I said yes!
The two bits Saturated Colour sent me were the Glazed Candy SheerStick* and also Colour Switch*. As I already had Fresh Rose* I’m so glad they let me choose Glazed Candy* as it is so my colour. Then there’s the Colour Switch* which basically doubles the amount of lipsticks you own and lets you join the cool ombré trend too.
Glazed Candy* is the most gorgeous pale pink. It’s not a rosy pink, instead it is more of a purple under toned pink which I think really suits me. The SheerSticks have a minty scent which will please those of you fed up with a vanilla or candy scented products. These are really quite moisturising and you could definitely take one with you if you’re looking for a good tinted lip balm.
One side note I do have to make is that you can’t place too much pressure on these as you apply as they do like to break, also they melt quite easily as well. Other than that they’re pretty good for the price.
Now the Colour Switch* is a highly pigmented white lipstick which can be used both over and under any lipstick. I really like the packaging of this because it shows that it is something less ordinary than a normal lipstick which is why it has the cute ribbon at the end. The swatches below show the Colour Stick on it’s own, then the LipsStick mini Caressing Red* on its own and finally the Colour Stick and mini LipsStick layered together. I really wanted to try and create an amazing looking ombré lip to show you but sadly my lips were just too dry.
What do you think of Colour Switch I think it’s quite innovative but not one I’ll reach for all the time; special occasion use and lip art attempts perhaps. Anyway what do you think of it, would you try it?
