Models Own Lip Stix - Pink Powder - Review

Hi Everyone!

Ah lipsticks in a pen, we have seen most highstreet companies release their own version of this design in drips and drabs over the years after the success of the chubby sticks by Clinique. Most of the high street versions have (I personally feel) surpassed the original and become cult in their own right, some however have been massive flops and so I was definitely intrigued to try what Models Own have to offer.

Models Own Lip-Stix are described as:

Deeply nourishing and ultra soothing, Lip-Stix impart intense colour for draw-dropping lips in seconds - line, define and colour all in one swipe to create a precision pout, quickly and easily. Super smooth, lips are immediately infused with moisture, giving a gorgeous, long-lasting satin finish. The retractable crayon will never need sharpening - just twist the bottom of the barrel and apply straight to lips!

But how was it in person?
The initial swatch did feel very smooth and glossy, pigmentation is good but not too 'loud' so this will be perfect for day to day wear (if cool pinks are your colour that is, if not then maybe try another shade.)

Applied to my lips the result was similar, very easy to wear and not at all sticky.
I didn't find it particularly moisturising but it certainly didn't dry my lips out either however it did seem to sink into the lines on my lip a little bit which could be an issue.

Overall this is definitely a winner if you're after a nice budget lip pen to throw in your bag for everyday wear, at £4.99 these are certainly budget friendly.

I was sent this pen to try out by Product Testers but all opinions are my own.

Hope you enjoyed this little post.
