[unpaid/sample] The texture of the Posh lipsticks reminds me a lot of Hourglass – it’s that same barely there glide that deposits instant colour.
I’m happy that these have some shine to them that allows light to the lips. They’re a mix of waxes and oils which accounts for the softness – rosehip, coconut and avocado are all stellar players for nourished lips, as well as a pomegranate/jojoba element for extra smoothing. You will not feel a hint of dryness after using these. My lips go dry at the sound of breeze, never mind new lipstick formulas, and there is not a trace of that dry feeling – personally, I’d classify them as conditioning lipsticks.
They feel nicely weighty in the hand thanks to the metal casings, but the bullets are slender and account for only about half the length of the case. There are 9 shades, all in a neutral palette apart from one bright red shade called Pop.
From bottom to top: Pop, Pixi, Sway and Pout. Sway is my favourite – it’s a flattering pinky/brown that is almost an exact match to my natural lip colour so I get an amplification without looking ‘made up’. They’re pricy at £34 each HERE but do feel more special than your every day lippie. Oh, I should mention that Pixi, the red shade, is quite blue toned to my eye – I think it looks orange toned in the swatch.
