Six years later and I'm still a bit odd, but hey - who isn't?! Only difference is, now I can wear the products I longed for as a kid with some confidence :)
[[ Stargazer 133 and Stargazer 128 lipsticks ]]
The packaging is simple and sleek, a shiny, sturdy, black, plastic tube with 'Stargazer' emblazoned across the side. There is a little white label on the base of each tube with the shade number printed on to it. The inner tube containing the bullet is gold, which reminds me of vintage lipstick tubes and makes a nice little difference to the usual silver inner tubes.
The formula is hard. Very hard. At first, it feels a bit like dragging a lump of plastic across your lips. After a few applications the hardness breaks down and the product gets a little softer and easier to apply. As for pigmentation, I use two coats to achieve maximum opacity, which is average for me. The wear time I get from these is about two hours, which is pretty damn good considering the amount of brews I have through the day!

I was sent these two shades by Stargazer's PR team after being gutted that I couldn't find shade 130 in New Look (what looked to be a perfect purple). They sent me 128, which is more a magenta pink with strong blue shimmer which gives it the look of being slightly purple. I wish I could have captured the blue shimmer better - it makes this shade so unique! 133 is a deep, metallic purple which I think would suit those with darker skin best. You can see me wearing it here.
Overall, not bad, not the best. I wasn't expecting the feel of a luxe product, though! I'd definitely recommend them if you fancy some stranger colours than you usually find on the high street. £3 for 5.2g of product, a bargain price if you ask me! Available from the Stargazer site, New Look and many fancy dress/ punk/ goth stores.
