Savvy Lipsticks in Pretty Pink, Guava and Coral

Lately I've been obsessing over lip products, lip balms, lip tints and lipsticks. I find that I just cant leave the house without at least some sort of lip product on my lips and in my bag.
Though I dont usually use lipsticks, since I find them too high maintenance for my liking (reapplying after eating & drinking and using the mirror throughout the day to check up on any sort of smudging or fading). 
I have been recently using the Savvy lipsticks that I purchased mid year last year, which I only just been using over and over again.

I purchased the lipsticks in the colour pretty pink, guava and coral during the Savvy 3 for 2 offer at Priceline, which usually pops up a few times per year. They originally costed me $4.99 each but I only paid $9.98 for all 3 hench being around $3.30 for each lippie! What a bargain.

You can take out the bottom of the lipsticks and it comes with some mini lippots. Except I find them pretty useless unless you plan on doing other peoples makeup with a lipbrush. 

L-R: Pretty Pink || Guava || Coral

Pretty Pink: My lips but better colour
Guava: Dusty Rose colour
Coral: Orange Red colour

I've been reaching for Guava a lot more than the other colours, it's probably been my go-to lippie during some outings. Though I do use Pretty Pink at school or whenever I just feel like a more natural look. As for Coral, I havent exactly used it a lot since it is a bit more dramatic than the other colours, I did notice that if I dabbed Coral on my lips it was a whole lot wearable.

The lipsticks glide on smoothly as long as your lips arent dry and flacky, so a well exfoliated and moisturized lip is the perfect base for these. But on the downside they are a tad drying when you use them and they also dont last for maybe up to 3 hours if you dont eat/drink.
I'm going to admit that I'm not the type of person who likes to reapply makeup throughout the day which is ironic since I do bring a lipstick in my bag even though I dont even use it. 

Sorry that these arent exactly 100% quality photos, but my camera just didnt picture the colours right. I found that my ipod camera made the swatches 90% true to the actual colours.


  1. I own the exact same shades! I do agree, they can accentuate dryness and look a bit patchy at times but nice for the price :)

    1. I love the shades so much! But yeah cant agree more, a bit of a downer that it's drying and patchy :/

  2. What if I told you I've never owned a single lipstick? Haha, just kidding. Or am I? Maybe if I purchase a lipstick, the obsession of lipsticks may begin.
    Thanks for the review!

    1. What?! Nooo! Well yes that will actually happen if you do buy one haha, you wont even realise how big of a lipstick collection you'll have if you start! :)

  3. These are so pretty and they look nicely pigmented too.

  4. Those colours look so nice! I've been searching for a colour like Guava everywhere and haven't been able to find it, so thanks for this post!

    I also nominated you for a Liebster award!

    1. Yes how pretty are they?! I actually only went to priceline to pick up Pretty Pink but with the offer, I just randomly chose 2 more of their lippies and no regrets on the choices! Glad I've been able to help, though I forgot to mention that Guava and Coral have some small glitter specks in them but it isnt really "bam,in your face". And thanks for the Liebster award, will be writing up the post soon! :)
