Jemma Kidd Glossticks Review + Swatches



Can you believe I've never tried Jemma Kidd products before? I first saw this line at Target, and was a bit curious. The Makeup School Collection was a great first look at Jemma, because I really got a feel for her products. I decided to separate the review into two parts.




The Jemma Kidd Gloss-Sticks proved to be my favorite. They are ultra hydrating and I get about 3 hours of wear with them. The name "Gloss stick" means these are half lipstick half lip gloss. I'm so sorry I took pictures after I used them, but I didn't realize a couple swatches would wear these down, but they are so creamy and moisturizing, I LOVE these. The colors are extremely sheer and will work nicely with any skin tone because they really blend into your natural lip color to create a nice soft glow.

The swatches show the colors show up on differently on different skin tones and different lighting. On my lips the colors are very sheer, and you want to make sure you exfoliate your lips really well before applying these glosses, they will bring out your lip imperfections. I clearly didn't exfoliate before I took these pics, but will be sure to do it next time I wear the Gloss-sticks. Both the colors are gorgeous and I think they are perfect for Spring, daytime and night. They can also be worn over your favorite lipstick to create a new color and an extra shine.



Jemma Kidd's Gloss-Sticks are high in moisture and rich in color, and I have nothing bad to say about them. If you have dry lips like I do, these will work much better then your typical lipstick. These are available soon at your local Target, and online for $25 which may seem a bit expensive for a gloss at a store like Target, but these are well worth the price.
