Let’s start into the new year with a whole new lipstick range, which Astor’s launching this month:
Astor Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks (12.90 Fr. /8.99 Euro)
The new range contains 13 shades, which are divided into 4 color groups: «rose-pink» (3), coral-red» (4), «berry» (3) and «nude» (3). Astor claims that the lipsticks are color intense, nourishing and long lasting. Like the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipsticks (my Clinique Pop Lip Colour Review) they have an integrated primer, which is suppose to prime the lips, smooth them and make the lipstick last longer without bleeding out.
Color range Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks:
«rose-pink»: 604 Fruity, 200 Forever Pink and 202 Fuchsia
coral-red»:403 Feeling Feline, 203 Fabulous Style , 204 Favorite Berry and 503 Ficition Red
«berry»: 302 Fireworks, 301 For Fun and 300 Fancy
«nude»: 700 Floral, 602 Fashion Chic and 703 Fantastic Plum
My impression of the Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks:
Design: The black and rose gold packaging of the Perfect Stay Fabulous lipsticks is pretty nice. What I’m not much into is the shape of the lipsticks themselves. I prefer e «normal» lipstick shape (easier to apply in my opinion) over this flat one. Speaking of the color range I’d preferred a little less shimmery/glittery tones! Apart from that the range has some beautiful shades! My favorites so far are 604 Fruity», «301 For Fun» and «700 Floral».
Performance on the lips: The first thing I noticed when I applied the Perfect Stay Fabulous lipsticks is the intense, sweet/fruity scent (they smell very similar to the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks). Luckily the scent doesn’t last on the lips!
The lipsticks glide over the lips easily: the pigmentation is good (but not overwhelming) and the lipsticks feel creamy and nice. What I didn’t notice was any smoothing effect from the primer. Right after the application the lipsticks show a pretty shine, which fades away after a while leaving a sort of satin finish look, which looks beautiful! On my lips the Perfect Stay Fabulous lasted for about 3-4 hours (without drinking or eating), feeling great on the lips throughout the whole time (no drying out my lips, no bleeding out!). I like!
