Ciaté London Pretty Stix in Vintage Blush

Ciaté London Pretty Stix Murumuru Butter Lipsticks come in a range of ten shades, and I picked up Vintage Blush, a perfect neutral "my lips but better" shade.  These retail for $20.00, and come packaged in a cute metal twist-up tube.  The official description reads "A hydrating lipstick in 10 gorgeous shades that are infused with murumuru butter and amino acid for ultra-moisturizing, highly pigmented color payoff."  I'm always looking for a moisturizing lip color that actually leaves my lips feeling nourished, and the Pretty Stix do just that.

The Pretty Stix are lipstick/balm hybrids, so you get the color payoff of a lipstick with plenty of pigmentation, and the moisturizing and nourishing benefits of a balm.  These feel so creamy and silky, and they are completely comfortable to wear.  The color itself lasts only about 2-3 hours for me, but the buttery softness and hydrated feeling on my lips lasts throughout the day.  This product has a very glossy look upon application, but you're going to lose that shine as the colors fades.

I find that my lips sometimes feel a bit drier a day after wearing certain lip colors/brands, but that's not the case with the Pretty Stix.  I love a long-lasting lip color, but many of the liquid lipsticks and lip stains available feel so dry on my lips.  I find that applying a bit of the Pretty Stix over the top of a liquid lipstick works wonders for making them feel less dry. 

The Pretty Stix are just a lovely product, and I ordered another shade yesterday.  I didn't expect them to be so pigmented, so I am going to see how I like this formula in a bolder color (Boho, a raisin shade).  They are quite soft and melt nicely into your lips, so I will have to use caution and/or a lip liner using a darker shade.  Seems there's always a trade-off--more nourishment/moisture for less color, or more lasting color with the potential for uncomfortable wear.  If you want something long-lasting, this isn't what you're looking for.  But if you're looking for something that actually treats your lips with effective ingredients and you don't mind re-applying a few times throughout the day, you will get plenty of color and hydration from Pretty Stix.
