SAX Cosmetics Rich Lip Colour Lipsticks: High End Quality, Low End Price

How “Bunnings Warehouse” does the title sound, eh? :P

This is going to be quite a bold statement, but I think SAX Cosmetics does one of the best drugstore lippies I’ve ever tried. I thought the lipgloss and sheer lipsticks were good, but when I tried on their rich colour lipsticks, YOWZA. They completely blew me away.

I had the pleasure of trying the ones in Berry Delight and Coral.

Funny thing though, the ingredients for both lipsticks are the same, down to the colours. A mislabelled box, perhaps?

The lipsticks are very creamy, and highly pigmented. The Berry Delight is a darkish-pink berry shade, and the Coral, well, coral. Seriously, I suck at describing colours so I hope the pictures would suffice. I’m the kind of person who would describe something as “ORANGE orange and YELLOW yellow”. Go figure :P

These lippies are light on the lips despite having 3 layers on. They last for hours too without any need for reapplication. As they are so pigmented, they tend to stain the lips. A good makeup remover would do the trick in removing every last trace from the lips.

My favourite shade of the two

Do check the Rich Lip Colour Lipsticks (while you’re at it, check out the entire range!) out at any of their stockists if you can. At AU$14.95 a pop, it’s a real bargain for something that is high-end quality, but low-end price.

What’s the best drugstore lippie you’ve tried? As in “take-that-Chanel-or-Dior-this-rocks-better”? :P

      Stephy: Sadly, at this time, it is only available in Australia and New Zealand. Although I do hope it will be distributed internationally because this really is good stuff :)

      Lily: Hee hee thanks! Which Dior’s your fave?

      1. Lily

        I have a few serum de rouge, dior addict, glosses and discontinued stuff. What I love most is Dior Glow. When I don’t know what colour to use, I always grab my Dior Glow. It’s good for my lips and it turns into a shade that compliments my natural lip colour. Love that!

      Nufaka: Aww thanks. I, erm, never thought of myself having pretty lips before :P
      Am afraid not, SAX Cosmetics does not deliver. Am hoping some companies would take up the distributorship for the brand though. Fingers crossed that will happen soon!

    I am hooked omn coral too- it was the coral I was searching for but couldnt find until now. I love the texture too- I generally dab on with my finger as a stain. Its such a winner!

      Me my best and I: You found it? AWESOME! I’m hooked on their lippies. Both the sheer and rich ones are such good lip products. You’d think they’d cost a bomb for the quality.

    I want a lip colour in orange…more of a peach-orangish shade…which one do I go for?

    1. Tine

      nb: At the moment, Sax doesn’t do any of the lipsticks in orange. The closest would be the Coral that I mentioned.
