You don't need to sharpen these sticks. All you need to do is twist the below part and the stick will become longer. All sticks have a plastic/fruity scent to it which i'm not a fan of. Thankfully the scent is not overwhelming.
In the swatches below I've applied 3 coats to make the color more visible. Here are the names from left to right: rose sorbet - tangerine intense - parfait rose clair - beige nacre - sable dore. As you can see rose sorbet, tangerine intense and sable dore are quite pigmented, while the parfait rose clair and beige nacre are not. They all have a glossy finish and feel like a lip balm rather than a lip stick.
1. ROSE SORBET
2. TANGERINE INTENSE
3. PARFAIT ROSE CLAIR
4. BEIGE NACRE
5. SABLE DORE
WHERE TO BUY?
These will be sold in May 2015 on their website: www.yvesrocher.com and they will be sold for €13,90 each.
I love the packaging of lip crayons since you don't need to sharpen them, all you need to do is twist it. It feels moist on the lips and easy to use. They are moist like lip balms and are not sticky at all. The radiant effect cannot be made with these unfortunately, the pigmentation of 3 out of the 5 sticks are ok but the other 2 aren't good. The color comes off once you eat or drink, so re-application is needed during the day.
If you are searching for a lip balm with a color, you might want to give these a try. If you are searching for a lip product with a long staying power, it's better to search for a different one.
