me and my mom have a similar taste in lipstick formulas (not that we eat them ;) so I was pretty excited when she started to talk about these amazing lipsticks from Catrice. After a picture she send me I figured it out that she is talking about tinted lip balms but somehow they do feel like a light lipsticks. I immediately bought my first shade which was accidentally the same as my mom has and later I got myself another hue and I bought two, another one for my lovely mom so we can continue being 'lipstick' twins.
On bare skin they are pretty light and a bit shiny, a lovely lip balm texture if you ask me.
After a long day wearing them I noticed that the lighter shade Flirty Rose leaves my lips dry and flakey (not a good look especially when the shade is so light which emphases every imperfection) but the deeper shade Sheer You Up doesn't do that. Apparently it is more moisturizing.
On the top of each lid Catrice states that each balm is infused with an extra oil and after checking out the ingredient list there actually is a different oil in each shade besides different coloring.
Light Flirty Rose has Almond oil but the rose one Sheer You Up has Olive oil and my lips are really liking it.
I will use up the paler one but probably I will layer it with something more moisturizing, my lips don't need to suffer but the deeper shade is my new love. I was actually thinking of getting ether a backup or a new shade for black Friday but then I decided that I have enough. I will first finish these two and then get myself some more.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day
