Beauty | Stargazer Lipstick Review



Stargazer very kindly recently sent me a selection of their products to try out. When I opened my parcel I was immeadiately drawn to the two lipsticks I was sent; Well, who wouldn't be?! I received a Lipstick* from their regular line in the shade 138, a fairly deep pink with subtle shimmer and a Matte Lipstick* in shade 207 which is a vibrant baby pink.

The first lipstick I tried was from the regular line; I was a bit sceptical as I've never gotten on with lip products with a shimmer. It sometimes can look childish on me. The product applies a tad rough, dragging on the lips a bit and it does takes a couple of applications to get coverage yet it doesn't build up to be completely opaque. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful shade however not one I'll find myself reaching for often.

The matte lipstick impressed me a little bit more. It applies easier (surprisingly) than the aforementioned lipstick and gives a fully opaque finish after a couple of applications. On me, it looks like a typical 'Barbie' pink, not something I'd usually go for but it's still beautiful! I think I could learn to love this colour if I wear it with the right outfit however it's not the longest lasting of lipsticks as it does begin to fade after only a couple of hours.














































Even though these aren't absolutely amazing, for £3.50 you can't majorly fault them. I feel that if they changed the formula around a bit and added sturdier casing they would be a lot better! I suppose you can't always win, but a decent effort from Stargazer! What are your cheap, go-to lipsticks? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I really love the shade of the second one! I quite like Stargazer but do agree they could improve the formula a little to make these really good products!
    My favourite cheapie lipstick is definitely Rimmel :)

  10. This is the first time I've read/heard about this brand lovely, the colours look lovely on you - you really suit pretty pink shades sweetie! For a cheap lipstick it sounds like a good go-to, I swear by MAC lippies but if I want a cheaper buy, I'd go Barry M or Topshop :)

  12. These colors look amazing!! I am really liking the shade 207 on you! I don't think this brand is available in Canada because I would love to try this one up! As you said the price isnt too high so it would be worth the try! For cheap lipsticks I like to go for L'Oreal ones as there are many nice colors!!

  16. Both of these colours actually look really good on you. Don't worry if you think you may look a little "childish" because it doesn't translate :)
