Recently it seems as if a lot of brands have been bringing out balm textured lipsticks and trust us when we say we’re not complaining. Traditional lipsticks are nice and definitely the way to go for most occasions but balm textured lipsticks are just really nice for those days where you’re lips are a little dry but a lip balm will just wash you out.
So if you are interested in our views on the Ecstasy Shine Lipstick, please keep on reading.
The main concept of the Ecstacy Shine Lipsticks is that they provide intense colour pay off with a high shine finish whilst having a balmy texture. Lets just say that all of that is true. Normally with lipsticks that are balmy, the colour is quite sheer and you need a few layers to really have a solid colour pay off but then because it is a balm, it ends up being too heavy on the lips or it just looks oily instead of glossy or shiny. With this product, the colour goes on A LOT more pigmented than most other balmy lipsticks but we wouldn’t say that the colour is as rich as traditional lipsticks.
The moment you swipe it across your lips you will feel the creaminess of the lipstick. It is definitely one of the more hydrating lipsticks we have used and what surprised us was that it seemed to help our lips ‘recover’ better than some lip balms. Ever since we got it, it has constantly been in our make up bag. Sometimes we would start the day off with a certain lipstick or liquid lipstick and throughout the day our lips will start to feel dry so then we would switch this one of these and no matter how many times we use it, we can’t stop being in awe.
We can’t say that it is weightless because you definitely do feel something on your lips, like you’re conscious of the fact that you are wearing something however it would be considered lightweight. What we realised is that when you initially apply the product, it can be removed quite easily however if you let it stay on for a while, the colour sticks onto your lips more so it is more long wearing. Yes it sounds weird but it is true. It’s kind of like the idea that it is stained your lips but without the actual staining.
Additionally what we absolutely loved is the packaging. All the lids are magnetic so when you close it, the logo is able to align perfectly to the middle AND all the actual lipsticks are magnetic so when you line them up they look a lot straighter. Kind of unnecessary for a lipstick but it is just nice when you’re organizing it.
Yes we are both kind of OCD in that sense.
