AMW Reviews: Ansley New York Flash Lip Color Stick

Good morning Friday! :)  
Remember my review on Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm?  Guess what?  I think I found its inexpensive counterpart!  I didn't plan to compare the 2 but ever since I started using the Ansley New York Flash Lip Color Stick, I can't help but be reminded of the Clinique version!

By the way, both names are long and difficult to remember!  *laughs*  :P


Ansley New York Flash Lip Color Stick says ---
Soft and quick display of a lovely cute lips!! 
  • Moist and glossy lips - Hexadenceco polymer which arranges water protection screen on the lips maximizes the moist.
  • Speedy display - The pencil type lip stick draws the smooth lip line without being put in between. 
  • No smudge lip color stick - High moisturizing and high shining
Color choices:

#1Banana - Lip make up base. Tiny pearl particles show the natural gloss
#2 Lovely rose - Soft feeling. Elegance rose color
#3Cherry rose - Fresh cherry bitten cute color

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Inexpensive for its quality.
  • Moisturizing.  My lips are very dry but I can apply this on its own.  This looks even better with normal lips!
  • Lasts longer than regular lipstick.
  • Has a hint of fruity scent that's not too strong.
  • Smooth texture that glides onto the lips easily.
  • Both shades of lip colors work for all skin color!
  • The Ansley New York Flash Lip Color Stick can define my lips without the harsh "outline" as created by regular lip liners.
Cons
  • Not for people who aren't into online shopping.
  • Packaging!  I have to open the cap each time or read the shade name as you can't tell the difference just by looking at the exterior.
  • Needs a big-hold pencil sharpener for this.
  • Limited shades.
Overall
Good pigmentation.  Long-lasting.  Doesn't dry out lips.  Inexpensive!

Tips
  • It would be best to blot your lips to minimize moisture prior to application to prevent the lip color from sliding off.
  • To make the lip color last longer, apply first layer all over lips and blot with a napkin, re-apply the second time and do the same.
  • You can always top this with your favorite lip color as this can act as a lip liner.  Once the lipstick fades, you still get a good base of color on your lips c/o Ansley.
  • For online shoppers, you can save up on shipping by ordering with friends.
  • If you have extremely dry lips, feel free to top the lip color with a gloss or balm.
  • Store in cool, dry place to prevent lip pencil meltdown.

Will I repurchase?
I won't be finishing up the lip color stick anytime soon so I don't think I need to repurchase for now, NOT unless more shades will be coming out.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who's comfortable with online shopping who likes the long-lasting effect of a lip pencil minus the dryness.
