Pout Post: STIKS COSMETIKS LipsticksHi, lovely people..
Long time no see. How are you?
I hope you are all well.
I am back with another lipstick review & swatches on STIKS COSMETIKS in Mauve, Burgundy, & Nude colours.

Because I bought the trio, I got a case which can accommodate the three lipsticks. Cute, no?
Although the packaging looks so sturdy, metal like casing, but it turns out like another cheap lipstick. The casing is made out of plastic. BLAH. With $50 for 3 lipsticks, I expect more from that.
With price range that competing MAC's lipsticks, the formulation & colour payoff are far from it. Especially the Nude colour. It is patchy, and dry. I have to outline my lips using darker nude colour to make it look livelier, otherwise I will look ill.

I don't like this one. Maybe people with lighter skintone than me can rock this kind of pale nude on the lips. I looked ill when wearing this.
BUT! The darker colours are like hidden gems!
The Mauve & Burgundy colour are gorgeous. No kidding. The formula is smoother, glides on the lips easily. Opaque in 2 or 3 plies of application.

The Mauve colour is my personal fave. I only need to apply 2-3 plies to get the opacity. Definitely the formula is better than the Nude colour. I don't know what's wrong.
Mauve & Burgundy are great for fall too! Have you try them out?
If not, you might want to grab the darker colours.
