Swatched from left to right: Bashful, Nudist, and Fuchsia Ristic
Living up to the name, these gloss sticks are super glossy. Although the sheer color payoffs are limited in building pigmentation, all three colors do look distinguishably different on my lips. The shine wears off after an hour for me, but the color stains for another 4-5 hours. I like the appearance of smooth lips that these gloss sticks give me even on days when my lips are a little chapped. The formula is light and the vanilla scent is absolutely delicious.
While Fuchsia Ristic looks almost orange in the bullet, it applies to a beautiful bright coral. Bashful and Nudist are more neutral shades that I alternate between depending on my mood. Bashful with its pink tint is more suitable for a youthful look while the more beige Nudist could adapt the same outfit to look a bit more mature.
These gloss sticks retail for £8 and I would repurchase.
