    smoochy time - 19 Jun 2015
    so i get this lovely smooch stick but was not sure about the colour as i generally wear more reds and darker shades in winter what with having black hair and having an olive complexion but i was truly surprised when i tried it on and it really looked nice thank you awesome team

    This is more my colour... - 11 May 2015
    I last received a Smooch Stick in Red and I remember doing the review and saying it was not quite my colour. My skin tone likes the more Nude shades and this one is perfect! Super smooth and slightly glossy, LOVE IT!

    NUDE FOR THE FIRST TIME - 28 Jan 2015
    After being recommended to try this colour when I wanted to try the nude shades of lip colour - and receiving it in my rubybox (added bonus) - this is my new favourite colour - the texture is also wonderful not sticky and goes on smooth with no drying out my skin. I love this and have now moved away from only reds and burgundy lip colours thanks to Latte Limbo Rubybox Smooch Stick

    Smooch stick - 14 Nov 2014
    i like the texture it feels good on my lips. the colour is to light for me it disapears.
  • Mehjabeen
    everyday ease! - 5 Nov 2014
    This colour is amazingly able to suit pretty much any complexion - which is always a bonus! ...just would've preferred a roll-out option, rather than a sharpening one.
  • Corinna
    Subtle - 1 Nov 2014
    I didn't think this colour would suit me but once on the lips the colour does not scream at you as it's a subtle nude tint which is great for the day or at night with smoky eye-makeup. The vitamin E seems to also be doing a great job as I put some on in the morning and unless you want to top up on the colour your lips will keep feeling moisturised for the rest of the day. I only give a 4 for value as on the one hand it falls on par with the prices of similar products however therefore not an extreme bargain. Nevertheless I will chose it over other brands which cost the same and don't give the same moisture this stick does. Too bad there are only 2 colours so far, I wouldn't mind some nice pinks and reds.

    Lovely for everyday use - 15 Aug 2014
    I got two of these this month and at first I wasn't sure of the colour as it seemed a little on the browns side which is not really my thing.
    However I tried it and found it was very natural and gave a good balance of colour and moisture. It is very convenient to stick in my handbag, and now I have one to keep at work and one in my home make-up kit, or handbag.

    Favorite - 13 Aug 2014
    I love this product it's so soft and glossy. Colour is perfect for me as it's not bright but still gives that needed extra colour. An evening out essential. Only negative is it's not long lasting so needs a touch up after drinking/eating.
