Rated 4 out of 5 by dedelew Very Good for Travel
The longevity and staying power of this little chubby stick surprised me. I applied in the morning to my cheeks and at the very end of the night, pigment was still there! I have the pink color and it gives me a cutesy look esp when I also have it on my lips. I have fair yellow complexion. I see this being very useful for travel as it would cut down on cheek and lip products to bring. The only down side is that it is heavily fragranced and the smell does not wear off for a good 6-8 hours. It's a warm vanilla, coconut, jasmine, baby powder purfume. It's also kind of expensive without a coupon

I bought the 40 Red, thought on the product itself it says "Poppy Red." It's pretty bright for my skin colour, which is medium. The application dried out my lips, and I had to take it off and try again with some lip balm to make it easier and not dry out. It's a beautiful colour, but it just didn't suit me. I will stick with the Colour Crush Lipsticks, because their more hydrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLiu Love these lip velvet sticks
I am a huge fan - used 1 nude (10), 2 coral (35) and 2 universal sticks. While I believe the universal shade will flatter anybody, I think the other shades will be more compatible with varying skin tones. For example, I love the coral on my lips and cheeks, but will only wear nude on my cheek as my it doesn't apply evenly on my darker tone lips. That being said, on my yellow based skin tone, the nude looks AMAZING on my cheeks - it gives just a natural flush of colour for flawless no-makeup looks. I bought the last three sticks when TBS released these to 40% sale! Don't think they're worth the full price tag though. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I picked up the Coral 35 and the color is absolutely gorgeous. They're buildable and makes my lips feel velvety and soft after applying it. However, they wear off quite quickly and for some reason it drys out my lips a lot.
The formula definitely needs to be more moisturizing because it keeps my lips soft for around 20 minutes before I felt my lips become completely dehydrated from this product.
Overall, it's an alright, got some pros and cons. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
