If you read my last post you would be aware that I have been looking for these lipsticks for a while, particularly Sassy Salmon, since spotting them on Lilit's blog Makeup and Macaroons.
The brand BYS isn't too hard to find but I have had so much trouble finding these particular shades. It seems that they are relatively popular!
I usually stick to the safest, nude, natural coloured lipsticks and Sassy Salmon is a lipstick that is definitely within my comfort zone! Still, I decided that a bright lippie whilst a little more daring is still wearable, so I went for Coral Kiss too.
I tried out Sassy Salmon first because it is the one I am most comfortable with. The lipstick itself is quite creamy and easy to apply. It is nicely pigmented and the colour I just love. The packaging is okay, but I found that the lid gets a little stick on, and then when you pull it off it clips the side of the lipstick and takes a chunk out.
It lasts a reasonable amount of time, but the thing that I don't like is that when it wears off it is a little patchy. It doesn't matter too much with this colour because it is light and close to my lip colour, but if this was a bright red I would be annoyed.
Coral Kiss was less drying out of the two lipsticks, but it wasn't that glossy overall. This one stayed on for longer and didn't go as patchy when it wore off. Overall it is a better formula, which is a shame because I like the colour of the other one better.
I wouldn't wear the colour Coral Kiss everyday but I guess it is just my opinion and what I am comfortable with. If you love brights then I am sure you would be able to pull this off!
