The other day I showed you swatches of the new Flower Kiss Sticks High-Shine Lip Colors from Drew Barrymore and Walmart, and now I have the Kiss Sticks Velvet Lip Colors for ya.
There are nine shades of these, all infused with emollients for moisture and a smooth application. These ones come in a white tube with rose gold accents and the same see-through bottom.
These have a less-creamy and slick feel to them than the High-Shine Kiss Sticks do. They are a velvet, low-shine finish, and not quite as pigmented, though still pretty nice. They do feel a little more dry on my lips, so I would probably wear a lip balm underneath if I was wearing one for long.
So Gladiola is a medium peach.
Camelia Charm is a pale ballet pink.
Flamingo Flower is a bright cool fuchsia.
Petal Kiss is a pink/tan.
Overall: While I do like these in terms of finish and shades, I don’t like them quite as much as the High-Shine ones. These are drier and not as comfortable to wear. They do have a softer, more subdued appearance though so if you like more of a velvet/matte finish, you might like these.
Availability: Walmart and Walmart.com only.
Pricing: $6.98 for 0.12 oz.
What do you think about these shades and texture? Do you prefer a velvet finish or shinier?
Note: Flower is cruelty free.
