For swatches of the colours head over to Milly from Pearls and Poodles, Kelly from Vampyvarnish or Allura Beauty. A German review can be found at Roselyn’s blog Roses of Beauty. My personal experience with the shade “Lovesick” is, that it is slightly drying on my lips. It has a very good colour payoff though and is easy to apply, which is why I like using it anyways. I either use a lip balm or similar to keep my lips moisturised.

What IsaDora is saying: ”The creamy feel of a lipstick combined with the shine of a lip gloss – treat your lips with a full dose of moisture and glossy color! The soft creamy texture with hydrating properties melts onto the lips and helps to lock in moisture so that the lips stay comfortable and hydrated. Lip filler action: Collagen pre-peptides and hyaluronic acids act plumping and firming, making the lips look fuller and smoother. Moulded chubby twist-up pen – just twist up the pen for more lip color.

  • Available in 8 Shades.
  • Doesn’t require sharpener.
  • £12.95
  • fragrance free
  • vegan, cruelty-free
