[Sponsored] Born Pretty Store - Almonds Oil Natural Cream Moisture Gloss Lip Stick Review

Hey everyone! I hope you're all doing well. Today I'm going to review the Almonds Oil Natural Cream Moisture Gloss Lip Stick that was kindly sponsored to me by Born Pretty Store.

Don't forget you can also use the code CHUH10 for 10% off your purchase at the Born Pretty Store website!
Here's a photo from the website. I asked for the color 02.

This is what it looked like when I got it:
You can see a swatch on the right~
Here are some photos with me wearing the lipstick (I'm also using the foundation from this review in these pictures as well!):
Packaging: ♥♥♥♥♥
The packaging is small and compact. Although the product is sold for cheap, the packaging feels far from that. The cap snaps to close and the lipstick stays put (doesn't wobble around inside the tube).

Application: ♥♥♥♥♥
This lip stick glides on really smoothly. It's creamy and very moisturizing, kind of like those lip butters from Revlon. It doesn't settle into my lips and actually lasts a very long time without reapplication!

Color: ♥♥♥♥
The lip stick is stunning and true to the tube's color. As you can see from the swatch picture, it's very pigmented. Although I have some filters in the pictures above, you can still very clearly see the lip color.

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥
This has got to be one of my favorite lipsticks of all time! It reminds me a lot of my favorite NARS lipstick in Roman Holiday (pictured below). Although the staying power is not as good as NARS, with the price tag of $4.26 (versus $30), I'd say this is a fantastic alternative.
Thank you once again for reading! I hope to put up the final lip product review sometime at the end of this week. I'm heading into my last week of school so I'll be working hard trying to get all my projects done ;^; I still have a lot of exciting posts to make, so please be sure to visit again soon!
