Last week after I mentioned this post from British Beauty Blogger in my Favourite Five posts of the week, the fabulous Jane sent me one to play with, so thanks a million Jane! She has the full set swatched on her blog, so go check it out.
These will launch in Ireland in July and I'll be getting more information about shades and prices next week, so hold fast for that. Right now, I'll show you the shade Rendezvous in all it's glory.
Obviously, the packaging and design is not unlike Clinique's Chubby Sticks but from what I've read online, the formulation is very different. This gives me all the more reason to get a Chubby Stick to compare this one to (ah, the things I do for the blog...!) I've played with Chubby Sticks in the shops and they are more sheer and lip balmy in consistency rather than the balm stain here which is drier and more like a lipstick. It goes on smoothly and evenly on my lips and when I press my lips together, there's still a bit of slip which is good, otherwise it would be too drying.
Rendezvous is a beautiful orange shade that's right up my street and perfect for summer time. As the balm part of it fades, the stain remains and gave me about three to four hours of wear. I can't wait until they launch and I want to get my paws on a red one I think... Roll on July!
Have you tried these yet ladies?
