Wonderful colors, long lasting and very MATTE.
May 13, 2013
These colors are so complementary for brown skin-tones that I give the product 4 stars
alone for the wonderful selection of shades. I've used all the major lipsticks from MAC,
NARS (best lip pencils), CHANEL, etc. and I have to say that TREASURED LOCKS LIPSTICKS
have same rich, 'saturated' colors and last just as long as the department store brands. If you like
matte lipsticks, Treasured Locks may be your answer. For me, I love the color--I've purchased 3 different shades
so far (Cocoa Bean, Paprika, Pink) and I haven't had a bad match yet with my medium brown skin tone.
So why not 5 stars? Well, here's the thing: I always have dry lips and to use TL lipsticks, I have to "pretreat" my lips with lip exfoliator and
mega-lip balm prior to using, otherwise if I were to just use the lipstick on its own, every crack of dry skin on my lips is magnified.
It's not that much of a hardship, and yes, my lips look amazing once I go through the process...but just be forewarned, these lipsticks are MATTE.
