We’re always looking for the next big beauty wonder product, and while our Beauty Ed was scrolling through Instagram she came across this new brand from the US. It’s called Stiks Cosmetiks, and it might just be the cleverest new beauty brand we’ve come across all year. It’s been designed by busy mum of three Laura Heilman, who wanted something compact, sophisticated and easy to use.
Now here’s the clever bit, the lipsticks- only range, are designed to be used with one-hand only. Simply flip the lip with your thumb and twist it up with your forefinger and thumb. The shape is also key, they’ll fit into any pocket, any size and they’re so light-weight you wont’ feel like you’re carrying the kitchen sink.
We’ve been carrying ours in the little Stik Kit, which holds up to three lippies at a time, it’s also super light-weight and it’s got a handy mirror on the back for touch-ups on-the-go. We have to admit we were skeptical that the formula of the lipsticks weren’t going to be as good as the concept of the lipsticks, but after rigorous testing at the Beauty Desk, we were seriously impressed. They’re creamy, not drying and super pigmented. The unusual slanted edge is also amazing for getting right into your cupids bow peaks perfectly.
There’s six colours in the range to choose from, and although they’re not over in the UK just yet, you can buy them online and get them shipped.
Trust us, it’s an investment you’ll be thanking us for!
Stik Cosmetics Lipsticks, $20 (£13) and Stik Kit, $10 (£6.50) each. For more information head to www.stikscosmetiks.com
