My number one obsession when it comes to makeup is definitely lipstick. I collect lipsticks more than anything else because they have the power to completely change your whole look with a simple swipe. So I was ecstatic when I received a package of SASH Cosmetics Luminous Lipsticks* recently. SASH Cosmetics is an up and coming Australian-based cosmetic company. Although I am in the US, I love finding and trying out affordable beauty brands around the world.
Their Luminous Lipsticks retail for just $16.95 AUD which is roughly $13.02 USD. They have a collection of 12 high-quality lipsticks in many different shades ranging from nudes, to reds, to burgundies and browns. A really important thing to note about their company and their products is that they are cruelty-free and paraben-free. I was able to try out 6 of their shades and I was very impressed!
The packaging is definitely the first thing that blew my mind about these lipsticks. They have a button on the bottom of the canister that you push down on and the lipstick pops out of the other end. I have never seen packaging like this before and I absolutely love it! It’s very unique.
The formula is great. They are buttery and creamy when you apply them and do not feel drying at all. Some of the ingredients include Vaseline and Coconut oil and you can really tell by how moisturizing they feel on your lips. I hate lipsticks that are overdrying and these are not like that at all. They feel very smooth and are very pigmented. The lighter shades I received are a little less pigmented but can be built up in color with more applications. These definitely have strong staying power because some shades were harder to remove both on my lips and when I swatched them as well. I used both micellar water and makeup wipes to remove the swatches off my arm. They last very long and require very little need for reapplication.
Here are the swatches for the 6 shades I received:
