This sister to the Soft Sensation Lip Butters comes in 13 shades. I am reviewing the shade 100 Delicate Mademoiselle and 205 Rose Fever.
If I have to pick my favourite lip butters amongst all brands they'd be the Astor Soft Sensation Lipcolor Butter (reviewed here and here), I don't how they do it but they have one heck of an amazing, pigmented, hydrating formula. Thus, you can imagine my excitement when these similar lipsticks landed in my mailbox.
Packaged beautifully in gold and white these tubes look very fancy. Thumbs up Astor! I almost squealed in delight when I swatched the shades on the back of my hand. They literally glided across my skin. The lipsticks are very creamy and moisturising, amongst the most hydrating formulas I own. They are beautifully pigmented giving a medium to full coverage and a glossy finish. They don't have the longest of lasting power but Rose Fever stayed on my lips for a good 4 hours or so.
Delicate Mademoiselle is a very pale powder pink shade that is not very wearable and does not look flattering worn alone, at least on me. I like mixing it with other shades of lipsticks. Rose Fever is a bright fuchsia pink which is truly stunning and eye catchy.
Astor has come out with 13 very trendy shades in this range and I have good mind to go out and grab some few since I am so gaga over their formula. They feel so weightless and comfortable on the lips. And to make them all the more worthwhile they contain SPF 20.
Highly pigmented shades with beautifully hydrating formula!
