I’ve had fun admiring and swatching these Noir Blanc Skinny Type Lip Gloss colours from Sasa Cosmetics. Have to admit, I get a kick out of placing them side by side too.
The lipgloss pens come in lil’plastic sleeves that list the ingredients, origin, as well as expiry date. Funny enough, the amount isn’t listed, but I’d say it’s about 3.5ml worth or less, which is pretty standard.
These pens are your standard “twist-and-click”sort, but with flat rubber/plastic applicators at the end rather than a brush. The applicator is firm, but does have a bit of give. It applies flat, which helps in getting a precise line and application on the lips. I really like them. If you’re layering over another lipcolour, these applicators tend to disturb the base colour less than a brush would. It took me about 50+ clicks before the colour started dispensing for the first time. Thereafter, just a couple of clicks sufficed to get enough out for the lips.
Moving on to the swatches below. Skin swatches have just 1 single coat of lipgloss 🙂
Although the lipglosses I chose have glitter in them, there were a few other shades that are just glossy without glitter, ranging from caramel to nude to a few shades of light milky pink. Oh and probably a light red too.
Definitely worth checking them out at Sasa at just S$5.90 a pop!
Worn on its own, the glosses are moderately moisturising and reasonably pigmented for lipglosses. They’re veerrrrry *slightly* tacky but not enough for me to feel yucky about them. No way will they last you through a meal but for a few sips with a straw they work just fine. The glitter is very fine and does not feel gritty at all.
Here’s a single coat of NBT-15 on my bare lips. With a flattering tinge of colour and lovely gold glitter that catch and reflect the light.
Makes me want to run out and grab the other shades, just to complete the collection 😛
