I love the round lipsticks! I think the texture is brilliant, really silky and they just glide on. My nan tried a couple out and described them as oily, but in a pleasant and comfortable way. The pigmentation was pretty good all round, except for Sash which was quite sheer. I love how there is a huge variety of shades in different finishes, but I wish there were some shade descriptions or accurate swatches! I hunted down lots of online swatches of these before buying and still ended up with a few rather overly frosty shades.
Thalia: rosey neutral, no shimmer
Sky Pink: shimmery baby pink, veering towards frosty
Fusion: deep fuschia with slight blue flash, no real shimmer, more of a lustre finish
Echo: nude medium beige, no shimmer
Doll: medium rosey pink-brown, almost a mlbb, no shimmer
Sash: frosty sheer pale pink, will look better layered
Pandora: shimmery violet, veering towards being frosty
Circe: similar to Echo but lighter and more peach toned
The lip pencils are nice, very pigmented and come in a great range of shades. It's a lip pencil, so I guess not much of a thrill, but some of these colours are actually pretty awesome.
Current: deep wine based mauve, not the red I was expecting (this is the long pencil)
Pinky: bright clean pink (this is the long pencil)
Fuschia: deep blue based pink
Hot Pink: very bright, almost neon pink
Nude Pink: peachy pink
Peekaboo Natural: similar to Nude Pink but deeper and less pink
Nude Beige: medium brown beige
Here's a colour corrected pic courtesy of Nero Photosnap. Looks a bit odd but the colours are pretty accurate and you can easily see the difference between those pinks.
round lipsticks cost just $2.50 here
long lip pencils are $1.60 here
slim lip pencils are $2.50 here
Shipping to the UK was very reasonable, this whole order cost just $10.05 which is equal to about £6.20 and they even threw in a free lipbalm. You can pay with paypal which makes things nice and simple too.
Hows that for a cheap thrill? Sadly not something you can pick up on the high street (not if you live in the UK anyway), but I think the extra bit of effort and the wait is worth it for those fab colours and cheaptastic prices!
An order for 4 round lipsticks including shipping to the UK comes to $19.43 which is approximately £12. Wait until Cherry Culture offer one of their frequent sales and hopefully we can get that total to under a tenner. 4 lippies for around the price of 2 weeks worth of cheap thrills. Beauty math = treats :)
