I have debated buying KA’OIR lipsticks for well over a year now. Sure there are countless youtube videos and instagram photos of dames in their blue lipstick and such. However that has never been my thing. Give me a red, pink or nude any day.
I finally caved after seeing copious pictures of more normal shades combined with a promo code that sauntered across my IG feed. I kept it neutral with my choices, figuring I could always branch out if I liked the formula. My order arrived in a reasonable amount of time. It was packaged nicely with tissue and all the fixins’. I was happy about that as many indie companies completely miss the mark on presentation.
First up is the ‘Love U’, described as a nude/earth tone. From the stock photo it looked like it could be the perfect nude for me. It appears a bit more pink once I swatched it. It’s probably a good thing, I need a hit of pink in my nudes; it keeps it from looking milky which NEVER photographs well. The texture of both lipsticks remind me of a MAC creme sheen.
I do not own any chocolate hued lipsticks. I’ve never actually come across one that I was totally in love with. Choco latte could have quite possible filled this void. It contains ZERO shimmer, bedazzlement or glitter. I know that I’d resemble Pearl from 227 if it had any of the above mentioned.
Over the next few days I will actually try these on and wear with a full face of makeup. I spent yesterday with a terrible migraine so the fact that I brushed my teeth was a major accomplishment.
Stay tuned for my final thoughts! Do you own any of these? Also are we friends on Facebook? If not, let’s rectify this immediately!
