If you’re a color person you’ll love this set! I will warn you: the colors are not as pigmented as they look in their bottles as it is a WATERCOLOR set (meaning the colors are light and watery — like the paints). I really like this set because I don’t wear a lot of crazy colors and because these colors are lighter than normal, it let’s me get away with it. The pigment and consistency is really great! It goes on well, nice and even. It’s quality gloss, people.
The blue is my personal favorite!
I really like this reddish pink one too. This would be more practical for an everyday look.
I was surprised by the orange. It actually looks great! Reminds me of a guava pink and very light orange color.
This one had me a little uneasy. I feel like it would look great on somebody, but not me! I could see someone doing a creative look with it though.
And this is the purple one. I was really impressed by this color, it’s actually really nice looking! Anyone could pull this off!
So you may have noticed that I did not include a picture of the yellow gloss. Well, it didn’t really work out because, well, it just was not feeling my lips and it’s not very pigmented.

At first, I had mixed feelings about this product. I received it in the mail from Sephora for $6.00 (way overpriced for my liking) and thought the sticks would be a bit bigger. Well, here’s the package. It’s cute, vintage-y.
I opened it up and I was confused
How was I supposed to apply lipstick to my huge lips using the tip of a matchstick with like maybe two drops of lipstick?? I pouted about this for a while, it sat in my makeup bag for quite a while and then I thought about trying it.
Again, I couldn’t get over the size, but I decided I should stop complaining and try the dang thing. As I lined my lips with the tiny, miniscule matchstick (that is actually SMALLER than an actual matchstick!) I thought: It ain’t that bad!
Believe it or not, the color was vibrant! I would use these matchsicks for lining and then use another color to fill the rest of the lip (just because I have bigger lips) Someone with smaller lips could apply the matchstick to their whole lip, but it was not working for me, sadly.
The full version is available on Sephora’s website and it is a fairly new product and I would imagine they would go quickly so if you like what you see, knock yourself out and buy one!
