Kleancolor Lipsticks - Tingling Mimosa and Oro Swatches

In my most recent Miss A haul, I ordered 2 of the Kleancolor lipsticks.

I had been hearing a lot about them from different social media sites and with all of the mixed reviews I decided to give them a try.

First off when they were delivered they sat in my mailbox for a couple of hours and thus were slightly melted. I stuck them in the freezer for about 10 minutes and they were good as new.

I can honestly say that after swatching them and trying them on that I too have mixed reviews on them.

Let's start with the positive.

Pros

-Inexpensive = Afforadable

-Great for someone on a budget who wants to build up their collection.

-Pigmented

-Easy application

-Big color selection

Cons

-Strong perfume smell

-Waxy crayon texture

So far with the shades that I have, Tingling Mimosa (Orange) and Oro (Gold) the pigmentation is great. The color glides on evenly. 

My main gripe or con with them is their strong perfume smell. It is the kind that you can taste on your lips and feel in your throat. Don't get my wrong there is absolutely nothing wrong with smelling like perfume, but it isn't appealing on the lips. I mean who wants to associate lipstick with perfume? Now give me vanilla or strawberry and I am a happy camper.

I can even tolerate feeling like I am applying crayon to my lips with their waxy texture. I am going to keep using them since I do like the pigmentation, but at the same time these will not be my daily go to lip products.

I ordered some more of them and will be post swatches of them when I receive them.

If you are interested in trying them out, below is the link for Miss A where I purchased them.
