Silk Naturals is not a place for the weak-hearted cosmetics addict. Its affordable and extensive collection of mineral makeup makes it hard to resist buying more than what you can actually use. Up to this day, I’m still shamefully keeping a dusty box of never-been-opened pots of eye shadows under my bed. Thankfully, these Kisser Slicker Lip Gloss sticks are so practical for everyday wear that they managed to see the light of day.
These lip gloss sticks are so moisturizing so they feel more like tinted lip balms. They have varying levels of pigments as you can see below. Some of them have the usual sheer finish that can enhance your lipstick’s color while some are so pigmented they can be a lipstick on their own. However, since they are cream-based, I prefer using them as is or over liquid lip tints.
Atomic is a cool, purplish red although it appears almost sheer on my lips. I like using it over the Vamp lip tint to tone down the, well, vampiness.
Bloom is a light, peachy pink that might appear nude on some skin tones. Maybe it’s just due to its light shade that emphasizes my lip lines but it seems to be the least moisturizing among the four.
Bitten is my favorite color. It’s super pigmented and buildable. The blood-ish color gives my lips that naughty, just out-from-a-make-out-session or yeah-I-am-ready-to-make-out look. Haha!
Sweet Nothings is brownish/mauve in color but I think it would look very natural on some skin tones. It’s a shade I rarely wear although I also find it sexy yet wearable to work (although I haven’t actually worn this shade to work).
The only downside, I think, is that they don’t last as long. You’ll need to reapply after 2 hours or so, a meal, a drink or, well, a real make-out session. What? They’re called Kiss Slickers!
Toss or Keep?
You’ll definitely be seeing more of these babies on the blog although I’ll try to use up this first batch before trying out new shades.
