supposedly you don't need to sharpen this, it rolls up like a lip balm, although after the initial uses, it will no longer have a "crayon" point. I'm afraid the surface will be too large to easily apply without a mirror.

The textures are a little different. This is a little more natural and slightly more emollient than the Nars, but if you want a better "made-up" look for fancy makeup, go with the switch.

The NARS stick is very matte and not very moisturizing. It's more like a lip stain than a balm/gloss. If you go more for the lip stains with intense color, then the NARS stick should be your next purchase.

I'd say more lipstick than gloss. It definitely has a bit of a shine, but not like lip gloss. It also doesn't have a thicker feel or matte finish like lipstick. Really it is more like a tinted chapstick. But, the color is just enough - fairly sheer and natural looking.

Trust me... I live in texas and we've had record breaking heat this year. because this item it so sheer and not at all creamy like a lipstick, its like a very sheer lip stain and it soaks into your lips and so it definitely dosent melt off. i suggest pairing it with a colorless glossy balm like carmex to add extra hydration and a bit of shine, as it really dosent moisturize at all.

Chunky cherry look like a trashy red on south asian brown skin?
I have medium brown skin and I'm south asian. Would the chunky cherry color look like a trashy red because my dad says that when I wear red lipstick, I look like a "bad girl". I asked three sephora workers and they all said that it looks natural and that they liked it. Im 16 btw. Also, would this be appropriate to wear to school?

I don't think it would look "trashy"; it comes out more dark pink than red...it's by no stretch of the imagination a natural color, although it works great over a lip pencil or lipstick. I wouldn't recommend it for school only because it is so short-lived. You'd be reapplying several times a day. Sephora has a generous return policy, though, so there's that.

It's the texture of a lip balm, so it gives good color but it's not dramatic like a lipstick can be or shiny like lipgloss. I have Chunky Cherry and it can definitely be layered to be as light or dark as you want. Doubt it would come across as trashy. It's not a dramatic color. Very natural flush to the lips.

The Chubby Stick is more like a balm and the Almost Lipstick in Black Honey (which I am also a big fan of) is more like a gloss. They both cover equally well and both of them last on my lips about the same amount of time. The Richer Raisin color is deeper and more similar to Black Honey.

I think it probably has more staying ability (because it is not as moist as the almost lipstick). Anything glossy and moist isn't going to last as long. Maybe get the stick in a similar color and put the black honey on top.

Two very different products. This is as described, it is a balm. It has the texture and the consistancy of a lip balm but with color. Both are sheer in how much color is deposited but the formulation of almost lipstick is more as a gloss with lip color or a lip color with a lot of gloss. The Colour Balm is simply a balm with color. No slip of gloss, no texture of gloss.

Coverage is similar, but a little less transparent than Black Honey. The Richer Raisin is similar to Black Honey, but a little more brown. Also, these sticks are not gooey and they don't smear. I like the way they cover, but still "show the natural lip" through the color. Try it!!!
