Let me just say that I absolutely love these lipsticks, they have an amazing colour selection, are long lasting, super pigmented and super affordable wherever you are in the world. They are originally from Los Angeles, USA. I originally purchased 4 colours to begin with about 2 years ago and then added more colours to my collection later last year.
This is basically our Magnum Opus of lipstick—it’s the one thing we absolutely MUST put on when we’ve got a cocktail party or black tie event. This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte cream finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E help smooth lips.
This lipstick comes in a black cylinder with a plastic lid, the lid is not very durable. It does slide off easily after a while and can easily be broken, a few of my lids have cracked (the ones I use the most).
- Long lasting.
- Glides smoothly on to the lips.
- It’s cheap to purchase but is high in quality.
- It is very similar to the MAC lipstick formulas.
- Available in many colours.
- Highly pigmented.
These lipsticks come in a semi-matte finish. Perfect for those days when you want a soft natural look. Even though I love my matte makeup, I do love to switch it up and wear these and my satin finish lipsticks from MAC.
Long wearing, I usually wear mine the whole day with topping up only after I eat.
Yes, definately. These are the cheapest lipstick that I have found in my journey of my makeup addiction that has impressed me this much with its formula and colour pay off.
- The lids of these lipsticks are not durable, they crack fairly easily if you do not take caution. (It’s not that bad but don’t just chuck it in your bag).
- It is not easily available outside of the USA. When they are they are usually costing double the price. (Which is still worth it but yeah)
- Standard plastic lipstick packaging.

I highly recommend these babies, they are a must have. Great lipsticks they look awsome alone or with other lipsticks/liners. I’m in love with the formula and colours and they are perfect for everyday use. I would normally use my Mac lipsticks; Velvet Teddy, Mocha and Whirl for daily but wear since new years I no longer do. If you are somone who is looking on the cheaper side to test out some bold colours then you could possibly buy all of these.
Can be found in the UK online but it is usually around £5 plus postage and customs.
