THEFACESHOP Ink Gel Stick in "RD01" & "CR01": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
New from THEFACESHOP is a line of ultra-pigmented lipsticks with a slick and moisturizing formulation. Available in 12 bold and beautiful shades, the Ink Gel Stick ($15 CAD) lip colors are seriously impressive. Today I have a couple shades to share with you. To see some swatches, click......

Packaging:
The Ink Gel Sticks come in super simple and sleek matte black lipstick tubes. The lipstick takes a lot of effort to twist up; it takes quite a few turns for it to dispense the desired amount. Also, there isn't a lot of product in the tube. You get 1.5 grams, which is about half of a regular lipstick. Given how soft and gel-like the formulation is, you can really go through these in a short period of time.

Formulation:
Infused with oils of safflower seed, rosehip seed, and European plum seed, THEFACESHOP Ink Gel Sticks indeed have an ultra slick, almost gel-like texture. Both shades have the shiniest and the most alluring finish; they are translucent but incredibly pigmented. "CR01" is a bold warm pink and "RD01" is a super bright red.
The slick formulation smudges easily and is a bit prone to bleeding; however, even when the product wears off, the lips are left with a super intense tint of color. The product feels amazing on the lips- incredibly moisturizing and lightweight. I personally find these a bit high-maintenance but for special events or occasions where you really want to wow, these are perfect!
