Stiks Cosmetiks Lipstiks! Review, Pics, Swatches

Purchased by me

 

The first thing that attracted me to Stiks Cosmetiks Lipstiks was the innovative packaging. This cute pyramid shaped lipstik (it’s not spelled wrong, Stik sticks with a theme), is housed in a square silver case with a flip-top cap. Stiks wanted a lipstik that would be totally portable and fit anywhere including your back pocket, a flat wallet or a tiny clutch. You’ll feel pretty hip opening the flip-top with one hand! Stik Lipstiks retail for $20 each but I bought this special 3-pc. exclusive set from the website Joyus for just $40.  All three lipstiks are packaged in this cute cube that reminds me of a old-fashioned cigarette case. The front even has a full sized mirror.

Included in this set are Red, Tangerine and Nude lipstiks. The slanted shape make application really easy–you can even use the edge as a lip liner! These lipstiks have a  creamy texture, great pigmentation and a lovely satin finish. The choice of shades in this exclusive set are well thought out to suit all skin tones.

Red, in my opinion,  is more of magenta shade and to my astonishment, my favorite of the bunch. It’s sheer yet has a great color payoff and is very flattering.

Tangerine is a vibrant orange coral that packs a real punch and is perfect when you want a pop of color or for your lips to be the star.

Nude is a beige with a peach undertone with just a touch of shimmer–a real true nude, even on my pale lips. This shade is great for either everyday when you want just of color and shine or with a smoky eye. Not sure how this looks on my pale lips, what do you think?

Don’t make the mistake I did. With this special packaging, don’t forget to twist the actual lipstik down before closing the lip or you will smoosh the lipstik. Oops!

This purchase was on a whim because I’m a sucker for good packaging and a good deal. I’m really happy with my purchase and I know I will get a lot of use from these pretty lipsticks. Don’t you just love it when an off hand purchase turns into something great?

Bottom Line: These lipstiks are creamy, color rich and stay put. I appreciate how Joyus curated this collection–all the shades are very wearable for everyone. The unusual triangular shape of the lipstik makes it’s easy peasy to apply on the go and even use as a lip liner.

  7. I like the unique packaging however, those shades wouldn’t look good on me.

  8. These are cute! I like the fact you can be precise with them. I usually am too much in a hurry to bother with lipliner anyways lol. I love the red on you!

  9. I recently reviewed the nude one which is very peachy on my lips. If I use a liner it adds a lot to the color too. I love the packaging and it’s a good thing you warned people since I almost smooshed too.

  13. Very cool looking packaging! I like the two brights.

  14. These look amazing. I love how every single one of them looks on you!

  15. Those are adorable! I’ve seen a lip balm in a pointy pyramid shape (kind of like a stud, from a studded belt), but never lipstick.
