Summary

There are many similar lipSTICKS out there at the moment. I tried to note down the most common ones. All of them have pros and cons, and I think in the end it depends on what you are looking for. You want a moisturising lipstick even if it doesn’t last forever? I’d say, have a look at the Chubby Sticks or Soap & Glory’s Gloss Stick. You want intense colour? Make sure to check out Revlon’s Just Bitten Sticks or P2 Lip Designer (though they are rather matte). It is important for you to buy cruelty-free? Well, actually in this case you have quite some options… Personally I am keen to try Lacqa & Co, simply because I love their packaging and the NYX ones, as I tried their Jumbo Eye Pencils before and really liked them. Both products are affordable and cruelty-free. For more information you could also check other comparisons at project-swatch.com, thesundaygirl.com and thebeautymilk.com.

Update: On Magi-mania you can find an overview over several lipSTICKS in German. Also today I came across the MUA Power Pouts that are definitely worth a look.
