SST Power Stay Lipsticks in "Euphoric" & "Willpower": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
SST is a fairly new beauty brand to me; I see it on social media every once in a while but I've only recently got my hands on a couple of Power Stay Lipstick ($27.95 CAD) lip crayons. Pigmented and extremely long-lasting, these lip colors have a gorgeous matte finish, perfect for fall and winter. To see some swatches, click.......

Packaging:
The SST Power Stay Lipsticks come in very simple pencil crayons. Unfortunately, these are not twist-up/retractable, which is quite inconvenient as sharpening is time-consuming and wasteful.

Formulation:
The Power Stay Lipsticks indeed have a very long-wearing formulation. The lipsticks are incredibly pigmented and they are not too drying. "Willpower" is a beautiful deep red and "Euphoric" is a bright, almost neon pink. The colors have a natural matte finish and the overall formulation is pretty great.

Overall:
The simple sharpenable packaging is a bit of a let down for me, especially given that each of these lipsticks are almost $30. The formulation makes up for the packaging, though; the colors are pigmented and the finish is matte and long-lasting.

Availability:
SST is available online at SST Signature Series.
