Flower Cosmetics High Shine Kiss Stick Swatches

Happy Wednesday!

I’m finally doing another part of my Flower Cosmetics swatches! Today, I’m moving on to the high shine kiss sticks.

The color selection for these lipsticks is pretty good, but I think a few of them look pretty similar. I own 3, but there are 9 and only two seem to be bold colors.

Before I get to the swatches, let me just remind you of my natural lip color.

My lips are a dark-ish red/pink. Why does this matter? I’ve found that my lip color can be kind of hard to cover up with some lipsticks. A lip color needs to be pretty pigmented to cover my lips without a lip concealer.

That being said, let’s move on to the neutral shade.

LS10 Nude Narcissus

Well, I think I accidentally found my skin tone! It’s pretty random that this lipstick matches my skin better than most of the foundations I’ve tried.

Maybe I should just wear this on my face! Good idea, right? ^_^

I think it definitely looks prettier in the tube than on my lips. Seriously though, I’m still really surprised at how much it looks like my skin color!

Honestly, I don’t have too much use for nude lipsticks. I only do heavy eye makeup every once in a blue moon.

Remember what I said about similar colors? Yeah, this looks a lot like the Nude Narcissus. I really wasn’t expecting this because the color at the bottom of the tube is so different.

I was expecting and almost lilac shade, but instead I got this!

Sooooo I’m not into the pale pink, I think. Not good for the warm skin tones!

LS15 Tulips 2 Kiss You

Now this one is completely different from the other two! This is so bright and pretty! It’s definitely a Barbie pink color.

One day, I will perfect this wink without looking like a crazy person ;). I have wonderfully mature life goals *giggle.*

Look at how pretty this color is!

I will say that this seems to be one of those colors where you actually need to wear real foundation. I’m only wearing a really sheer bb cream in these.

I seriously cannot be bothered with real foundation during the work week. ∩(︶▽︶)∩

Overall:

I don’t think I like these as much as the matte kiss sticks. It’s probably because I love the bright colors of the other line, but the fact that these are actually moisturizing still cannot beat the others.

What can I say, I am still a kid who loves brilliant colors (─‿‿─).

What do you think of these? Would you wear any of these colors?

Random side note:

I’m pretty sure the Barbie pink color brings out the green in my lenses! BONUS! ❤

Flower Cosmetics Matte Velvet Kiss Sticks Review and Swatches

Good afternoon~~~

So, I was supposed to do this for ever and 6 years ago, but here we go ;). Thanks again to my Auntie for giving me a ton of these products.

Today, I’m finally going to start with the matte finish velvet kiss sticks.

As far as neutral colors go, this one is pretty dark. It doesn’t cancel out all of the pink of my natural lips by itself, but it does definitely soften the color.

LS7 So Gladiola

This is a really pretty peachy-pink color that looks almost coral in certain lights. I like this as an every day color and it gives a really fresh look. Coverage wise, it’s really pigmented as well.

Oh my goodness, this lipstick is so pigmented! Holy cow, I love this so much. The color is absolutely gorgeous and is a pretty true red without any visible orange or blue undertones.

LS9 Flamingo Flower

Just like the red, this pink is just as stunning and pigmented! The color payoff is really great and intense. This color is definitely going to be a regular for me.

You know how I love my bright lip colors ;).

The Breakdown

Things I like:

The color selection is really pretty! I like the packaging design as well like I mentioned before. It’s simple and sleek.

Things I don’t particularly like:

Here’s the problem. I don’t know why, but I find these lipstick to be uncomfortably drying. It doesn’t completely dry out your lips though. I just felt like I needed more moisture. Using a balm before applying definitely helps.

Also, the wrapper on the lipstick comes off really easily. It’s a really nitpicky thing, but it just makes me want to take the sticker off.

Overall:

These lipsticks are really nice, but they isn’t my favorite drug store brand for lipsticks so far. It’s probably the matte finish to be honest. I did really like the brighter shades though.
