[productsample/affiliate] If you’ve never come across this type of lip powder before, it’s really quite fun to use.

Basically, the tube is full of coated powder that immediately turns to a liquid on contact with skin. It’s not runny and neither is it thick, landing on the lip in an imperceptibly light layer. This shade is Sugar Coated, a kind of pinky nude colour. The technology for powder lipsticks comes from Korea and while they don’t contain any wax or even water (hence the light feel) they usually have some emollient qualities to them.

This one doesn’t feel in the least drying – in fact, it’s the best I’ve used although I’m sure they’re all much of a muchness. It’s helpful that the shade is a neutral because the ‘dust’ inside can drop minute particles so don’t apply this wearing your best white silk shirt! If it was a bright red or pink, you’d need to take even more care. The finish is matte (these can’t be made to a shine) but as it’s not a drying formula, there’s no need to worry about it shrinking on the lips and making them look crumpled – that just doesn’t happen. As soon as it goes on, it feels like your own skin.

There are four shades, each is £22 HERE.
