J.Cat Beauty Honey Crisp Fantabulous Lipstick Review+Swatches

 J.Cat Beauty says "a girl can't go wrong with too many Fantabulous Lipsticks. Your outfit isn't complete without a gorgeous, creamy shade of lipstick and we have 48 colors for you to choose from. You'll feel more fantabulous than you already are." I'm reviewing Honey Crisp, which I received in an Ipsy Bag quite a long time ago! Each of J.Cat's Fantabulous Lipsticks contain 3 grams (.1 oz) and sell for $2.99. J.Cat is cruelty free. This lipstick was made in China.

 J.Cat's Fantabulous Lipsticks have that same low quality packaging as NYX' most recent lipstick releases. A black plastic tube with the J.Cat logo and product name printed on the front, and a full ingredient list on the side. The scrolling mechanism is too weak to support the lipstick bullet, so it slides back into the tube during application. My lipstick also snapped straight off at the base, making application even more problematic. Packaging is recyclable.
 J.Cat's Fantabulous Lipstick Formula really reminds me of NYX Round Lipsticks. This lipstick has a really creamy, smooth, moisturizing formula that feels wonderful on the lips. Honey Crisp isn't quite opaque in one swipe, I always go for a second. This moisturizing lipstick is very transfer prone, but otherwise wears decently for two to three hours. The Fantabulous Lipsticks have a light vanilla scent and flavor.

Honey Crisp is a light, warm, peachy nude with a satin finsh. This is not a flattering shade on me, its completely the wrong tone so it gives me that dead lipped look. I can make this lipstick work with a few glosses, but on it's own its dreadful.
J.Cat's Fantabulous Lipstick has a nice formula, but the packaging is just straight up junky. This Honey Crisp shade looks gross on me - an orangey nude is just not for me. Perhaps Honey Crisp would better suit someone with warmer skin. The Fantabulous formula is comfortable and hydrating, it wears decently, I don't recommend this particular shade, but I think J.Cat's Fantabulous line has potential.
