Sunkissed is a cool toned coral-pink. It's semi-opaque and can be built up to full opacity. It's slightly bright, but not too bright that it screams for attention. At full opacity, it looks really soft and creamy on the lips. It's neither matte nor glossy - but meets somewhere in the middle. On my skin the coolness of the color looks slightly unnatural on my warm skin tone. For those with cooler skin tones, this may be a better option.
The texture is creamy and moisturizing when initially applied. After several hours though, it does dry out your lips. I tend to always put lip balm underneath anyway, but it still dried them out. (I have pretty dry lips that need constant moisture.) I recall reading other blogger's reviews and they all raved about how moisturizing this is. I can see how it is pretty moisturizing at first, but in the long run, it's probably pretty average.
Because of it's creaminess, this one can easily be removed with a swipe of the lips. I mean, what lipstick doesn't? It also doesn't survive eating and drinking. But it does leave a nice stain on the lips.
Pricing and Availability (3/5)
I bought this at Target for $9.99. It's pretty easily available at Target. So if you have one around, you'll be able to find this. If not, I don't really think you're missing out. Also, $10 is somewhere in between drugstore pricing and high end pricing. If you're expecting high end formula with a $10 price tag, look elsewhere.
I really tried to like this lipstick. All summer, I've been procrastinating my review because I really thought I'd end up changing my mind. But my opinion still holds. IMO, this is a pretty average lipstick encased in pretty packaging. While it's key elements were packaging and color, the formula definitely threw me off (and that's a big thing I look for in lipsticks.) Anyway, I hope this review helped you.
