We have been using the OXX lipsticks for a while now, but after seeing some mixed reviews on one of our photos on Instagram we thought that we would quickly write a review on what we think of them. We bought our lipsticks in both New Zealand and Australia from Kmart and they retail for $2!!
We really like these cheap and cheerful lippys and haven’t had any issues with using them. They’re a really great pigmented colour, which as you can see from the swatch carries across to the skin once applied. (Please note that none of these photos on this post have been colour edited so that you can see the true colour of the lipsticks.)
The consistency is slightly waxy so it doesn’t dry the lips out like other lipsticks do and we both love the fact that we don’t wake up with leftover lipstick in the cracks of our lips in the morning! However because of this we did find that you had to reapply it every 2-4 hours.
Please remember that these are $2 lipsticks, so you can’t compare them to a $30-$40 high end brand. But if you’re a little bit strapped for cash then give these ago, for $2 what have you got to loose?
So get to your nearest Kmart and give them a try, we’d love to hear what you think as well, so either leave a comment below or tag us in your post on Instagram/Facebook.
