I haven’t really been buying any makeup lately mainly because I’m trying to put a new wardrobe together for fall/winter and that’s where most of my $$$ go.But…..I still need to upgrade my makeup kit with some “kick ass”products before my next client/job.I’ve got a Wishlist the size of Africa now! The more I cancel items I acquire on the list,the longer it seems to grow as I keep adding new things everyday.*Sigh*Whats a gal gotta do? I’m a junkie when it comes to trying new products ‘cos I don’t want to miss out on the best.Ok enough babbling from me…Moving on:
I’m currently loving the 4 lipsticks below!I’ve had them for about 2 weeks now.Just for the record I’m a pink lips lover.I believe pink looks really good on everyone regardless of your skin tone or colour.You just have to find the right shade.
*Ahem! Pardon the poor swatches*
The above swatches is with flash…& I swear my skin wasn’t that dry..lol. On a nicer note..How pretty are they?!!
In order of appearance: Nyx Narcissus* Revlon’s Candy Pink* Cover Girl’s Divine* Revlon’s Alarm*
This image is without flash.
-Nyx Narcissus is to die for! It’s a bright neon pink & my fave among the group. I find myself constantly reaching for it. The colour pay off is awesome.I personally think its one of those “Barbie ” lipsticks all divas should have.However,I do find it drying at times. (In case you’re wondering,my fave baby pink lipstick of all time is Mac’s St Germain!)
-Revlon’s Candy Pink is the least pigmented among all of them but has the nicest name.You’ll have to re apply a couple of times before you get some colour.Nonetheless,its such a pretty soft pink colour and if you’re into sheer and glossy lipsticks,you’ll enjoy this lipstick.
-Cover Girl’s Divine Lipstick reminds me of Mac’s Up the Amp lipstick except this colour is very unique and stands out.Its purple with a hint of magenta .This is such a universally flattering colour and long wearing.
-Revlon’s Alarm is a deep red colour that screams “diva”when you have it on.I don’t normally do red lipsticks but I wanted to give this a try and I’m glad I did.It’s very pigmented and stays on like a lip stain.I wear this lipstick especially at night when I wanna look extra sexy..:-P.Definitely worth trying especially if you’re medium to dark skin.
These are all drugstore lipsticks and very inexpensive(prices range between $5.99-$9.99CND)
Doll Notes : I highlighted the names to show the true colour of the lipsticks.Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?Remember to always moisturize your lips before applying any lipstick .
