Before anyone freaks out, no, I am not branching into blogging about make-up! For one, I don't have the expertise (or the application skills!) - my knowledge lies firmly with nails. I'm merely sharing a product with you that I tried and loved and outing my secret lipstick obsession!
Models Own recently launched Lip-Stix, a collection of 10 chubby lip crayons. I do love lip crayons because you can get a bit more precision in application than with a normal lipstick. I'm partial to a red lip, so picked up Ravishing Red to try out.
I was pleasantly surprised with how easily this glided on, it was like silk! I have very dry lips (well, a very dry bottom lip to be specific!) and a lot of lipsticks just dry them out and build up in the cracks, but I had no problems with this; I found it very moisturising. The colour is quite intense, it leans a tad orange-toned but a lot less so than other reds I own. It has a nice satin finish, not too glossy but not matte.
Apologies for how amateur my lip swatch is! Not gonna lie, I covered up a spot. Also, compared to photographing my nails I found this extremely difficult... how do make up bloggers do it!?
As for staying power, I was happy with how well it lasted, especially for the price of the product. I wore it most of the day with a few touch ups here and there, it barely seemed to fade at all!
Well there you go, how did I do?
