If you have been following me on my instagram, you will know that I am not a big fan of drugstore lipsticks (with the exemption of Wet and Wild Megalasts). Just recently, FS Cosmetics relaunched their products. Liz of Project Vanity raved about this lipstick and I immediately bought my own tube.
As you can see, they also changed the packaging of their products. I was also told by one of my blogger friends that they had also added some new items and improved the formula of the existing products.
The packaging of the luscious lipstick looks very high end. It is black and matte with the letters FS printed on it. You need to click the bottom so you can pull out the tube from the cover. I love this concept because this will surely not accidently open in my purse or kikay kit. There is also a bonus of a small mirror on the cover, big enough for you to slay your lipstick application.
There are so many shades available but I did not bother to swatch because I am so fixated in just getting this specific shade recommended by Liz.
The shade color is named Brick. I know that you are thinking that it is not as half as close to the brick red we initially imagine. It is actually a earth toned pink that is wearable for all skintones. The shade is easy to wear and can pass as my MLBB if I will be one shade lighter lol.
For the formula, it is matte and a little creamy. Sadly, it does not lasts that long on your lips. Average of 3-4 hours based on my observation and almost fades away when you eat.
Swatches are shown above.
Overall, I recommend this for students and for office gals who wants a natural and not overwhelming pink lips. The pretty packaging can also be deceiving!
