Product Rave: Prescriptives Lipsticks & Lipglosses!

Sometime ago, someone requested me to do a review on my all time favourite lipstick in shade First Crush Blush, from Prescriptives. The Prescriptives Color and Shine set was sent to me as a gift a few months back and the lipstick was a part of the set and came inside a lovely red box. The Color and Shine set contains 2 Moonbeam reflective gloss in shades Comet and Stella, both size 3ml, Plus 2 Colourscope Lipcolor in Posh Ginger and First Crush Blush both size 4g. in a stylish & sturdy metal case.

The Moonbeam lipgloss in shade 12 Comet is a beautiful shimmery golden brown color while the other shade 03 Stellar is a gorgeous shimmering mauve brown color.

The first lipstick is the shade 15 First Crush Blush which is a mauve brown color with a creamy finish (my fav shade). The other one is the shade Posh Ginger - a dark brown colour with a hint of orange and a shimmer finish to it.

Swatched (LtoR): Comet lipgloss, Stellar lipgloss, and First Crush Blush lipstick.

Unfortunately, I couldn't swatch Posh Ginger for you as I gave it as a gift to my mom a long time back. The Prescriptives moonbeam reflective glosses remind me of MAC lipglasses and provide a similar sticky feel on the lips. These glosses come with a brush wand for precise application and the color stays on my lips for around 3 to 4 hours. What I really like about these glosses is that they contain tiny light reflecting particles in multiple colors that provide a brilliant multi-colored shine and 3d effect on lips!
Now going on to the Colourscope Lipcolor shade in First Crush Blush (*blushes*)! The shade itself is a classic combination of brown and mauve and will surely look lovely on any person with a fair to medium/olive skin tone. The lipstick has got an emollient finish to it and glides on like a dream! Its rich in moisture and provides a lot of volume and oomph to the lips! I have worn this lipstick to parties, work, college, for shopping and it goes on well with any outfit and looks good at any time of the day! The fact that I wore this shade on my last birthday speaks a lot about how much I love this shade!

I highly recommend these lipsticks and lipglosses from Prescriptives as their Color and Shine lip set is of a fantastic quality and good value for the money and they would make a nice gift set for any lipstick loving lady out there!

Coming to another exciting thing, I got a package from Sleek yesterday...

What 's inside the box?! hummm take a guess, girls!
My next post is going to be on this 'thing' until then I shall keep those who are unable to guess it right in a state of puzzle ;)

So, have any of you tried anything from Prescriptives & found it to be good? any recommendations?
