I was excited to come across these lipsticks in London, I had been plotting an order from the US but the shipping costs almost made me think twice. I ordered samples of my preferred from Alyaka, and they arrived super fast.
Kosas is a brand that I had heard of through Goop/ Gwyneth Paltrow. She used a red one in this video and it made me wanna have it, because I haven't had very much luck with "natural" lipsticks in the past, and these looked like modern textures.
Fast forward to my first impressions: They are. They are a creamy moisturizing lipstick with a nice shine, they feel like a lip balm and there's nothing much bad that I can say about them. They smell like vanilla. I really like them, and I wish they made nude shades (and lip liners!)
On my skintone...
Rosewater is a sheer dusty pink, kind of your lips but better with a strong pink tone
Stardust is a sheer dusty rose/coral, kind of your lips but better with a coral tone
Electra is a very bright poppy red, lighter than I was expecting from seeing the photos.
Undone is a fantastic brown pink, it's like a natural version of NARS Pigalle. It is lighter and more reddish though
I really want to try them all because they look so different on lips! Feel free to watch the video for a better idea on colour.
