Makeup Revolution MATTE Lipsticks- Review & Swatches

 

Hey guys! Hope you week if off to a great start.

Another new Makeup Revolution London review today, at least to me! A few weeks ago, I ordered some beauty products online and here are one of the many I got. For some of you, you might’ve seen it appeared on my Instagram feed. But here is the gist, you guys!

I’m super excited to do color swatches and try them on seriously. I must say my hunt for red matte lipstick ends here for now. Many of you might have known that I love a good matte lipstick and red is my favorite color besides nude.

So anyways, let’s start …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The two products I wanted to features are the Rose Gold Lipsticks in Red Carpet and Iconic Pro Lipstick in Duel Matte and obviously both are from Make Up Revolution London. So yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love the cute bullet packaging, especially the rose gold one on my right. The black tube reminds me of the Mac Lipsticks. And you can see the color at the bottom of the clear tube.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First and foremost, Iconic Pro Lipstick in Duel Matte – I’m a sucker for matte lipsticks and I knew I would fall head over heels for these two babes. 

The Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro Lipstick line has 20 lipsticks in total with a fabulous mix of shades from nudes to brights and classic reds to vampy dark hues. A wide color selections that fit everyone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Just look how fabulous the shape and color of this lipstick, please. This is a beautiful true red and eye-catching lipstick that’s not over the top in my opinion. It’s totally wearable and I know it would suit a vast majority of people. The formula is richly pigmented and  it goes on  ever so smoothly. I am really impressed with how pigmented these lipsticks are.

Another thing I wanted to mention is that I don’t feel that there’s any tugging or patchy finish on lips. I love the formula and yes, it feels very comfortable.

There is a hint of smell on this lipstick but it’s scented enough to be pleasant without being overpowering. It wouldn’t cause me headache like some other brands do.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I find that they do stain the lips a little which I don’t mind at all as I find that as the color wears off, I’m still left with a little color underneath. I would say that the staying power is about 6-7 hours. So, I’m not complaining!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve also been wearing this lipstick the last one week or so and I think now is the perfect time to share my thoughts on this. So, let’s get to the review and see what I have to say about it.

This rose bullet feels lightweight yet looks luxurious. I like this packaging for it looks cute and sleek. I’m quite impressed with the long lasting formula and color payoff. It’s definitely something I’ll go back and order a few more for backups.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This shade is more of a true, traditional red.  It has a sexy and classically feminine look to it. I love love it! Excellent pigmentation and gorgeous matte finish without having the dry feeling on lips like some matte lipsticks do.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These lipsticks comes with an affordable price tag and I would definitely recommend you all to try them.

Conclusion – The red shades are absolutely fabulous and I can see those that love red lipsticks really enjoying these as much as I do.

Have you given either of these products a whirl? Let me know what you think of them in the comments below! I love to read what you think.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I’ll see you guys again on the next one. Bye!

Best Cruelty Free BH Ultimate Lips To Go – Review & Swatch

 

 

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog 🙂

Good Morning everyone! I’ve been awake since half 6 this morning –  nice and early today, currently sipping on a cup of coffee and hoping that this will help a few of you in some way!

I’m very excited to publish my post this morning and planning to write another two more reviews hopefully.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today, I’m going to be taking about this gorgeous Ultimate Lips To Go 6 Color Lipstick Palette by BH Cosmetics and as you can see they’re colorful and oh-so pretty!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are 6 glorious shades in this palette. All of each are equally pretty than the other. This palette is definitely something for everyone whether you’re up for a red dark plum lips to coral wearer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette is cruelty free and here I’m sharing the ingredients this lip products contained on this compact packaging.

Keep scrolling to see something cool….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like the color selections in this palette and look how sleek and compact the packaging is. You can simply throw it in your purse and touch-up whenever you want, girl! It’s so convenient and oh yes, did I also mentioned it came with a lip brush! Yay!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My only complain is that the packaging is without a mirror, which didn’t bother me at all. I only do the touch-up in the “Ladies”/”Rest Room anyways.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Now, behold for these epic awesomeness. Aren’t they the prettiest for a good value!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sharing here the color swatches – very pigmented, smooth and glides on lips like a dream. I’m loving it and wearing a mixed of coral and mauve colors today. Let me point it out that these lipsticks last quite well.

Capture For everyday lips Capture Ombre lips Korean  For ombre lips Korean

I’ve noticed especially with the darker shades, is that they turn into stains on my arm after doing the swatches. Honestly, I really wouldn’t mind having lip stain on especially after my lipstick faded.

If you haven’t seen this from BH Cosmetics yet, then I’d definitely recommend you go and check this product. A DEFINITE KEEPER FOR BEGINNERS OR PRO MAKEUP LOVERS.

This amazing lipstick palette is for $5.00 when you purchase more than $25.00 from BH Cosmetics. I’m not sure if they still have this promotion up but do check out this product when they put them as permanent line.

Have you seen this on Bh online website? Would you pick up this palette? As always I absolutely love reading your comments and still have a lot to get through!

Hope you all enjoy this post, the product and the look and I can’t wait to see what you all think!

Sharon xoxo

I Love Lippy Monday – Hard Candy Velvet Mousse

Hey Everyone! How’s it going? Hope you had a great weekend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

New for Spring 2016, Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors CAD$7.99  at Walmart are a range of matte liquid lipsticks that promise bold long-lasting color with a hydrating comfortable wear.Available in seven charming shades from neutrals to mid tone pink, coral to bright reds.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I find the packaging on this Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors is super adorable. The packaging is of metal tin casing with lovely floral design on.  There’s also a mirror inside the lid of each tin when it’s flipped open. That’s pretty cool for a $7.99 lipstick. in my opinion.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The packaging of this lip color is an oval shaped see-through tube which is really neat. It has a long flat applicator.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about the formula. I really love this amazing pigmentation of this matte lip color. This applies smoothly and evenly, with full color coverage in a single coat. It doesn’t take much at all to get a lot of color, and the color really sticks around.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m in love with this Cherry Blossom shade. It’s gorgeous and flattering on me when I applied it. I didn’t find the matte formula to be extra drying. This lip color is comfortable and light weight on my lips. I’m quite impressed with this velvet matte and satisfied with the appearance it delivers. Love this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall,  Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors ($7.99) is a really nice product for its performance and excellent color payoff…and the price is right! Not to mention, the packaging is so cute! Hard Candy product is also not tested on animal.

Capture

Will I repurchase? Yes, Absolutely!

Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colors are available exclusively at Walmart or Walmart online.

NYX Soft MATTE Lip Cream Review, Photos and Swatches!

 

Hello all!  Welcome back to my first 2016 blog post. I’m back! Are you excited?

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas break and New Year, spent some much deserved time with your family and ate and drank way too much!

Let’s jump right in:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t go to Jean Coutu Pharmacy as often as I use to, but when I do I always make sure to look for the NYX section. I noticed that not all Jean Coutu carries NYX cosmetics. On my recent trip to one of Jean Coutu’s store, I was excited to see a few products by NYX that I have been wanting to pick up for awhile.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Color Lip Cream from Left to Right: AMSTERDAM/MILAN/MONTE CARLO

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (CAD$8.99) are a new line-up of lip cream that are described as providing a sheer to medium coverage without feeling sticky. NYX makes some awesome lip glosses (especially their extreme lip creams so I heard) and as usual, they come in a great variety of color galore. Available in 11 soft matte shades with net wt: 8ml in store, drugstores or NYX online.

It provides enough coverage to be worn alone, but if you want opaque coverage you may want to layer it over a lipstick. I find that if I apply more than one layer it feels too thick and gooey on my lips, so one layer is all I need. Once applied on lips, I noticed the formula to be very moist and I blotted it with tissue paper for it to look more of a matte finish.

I really like these lip creams and would definitely try other shades. I like that they are a bit thicker than the Megalast Lipglosses, so they stick around longer and feel moisturizing on the lips. It feels super moisturizing on the lips and has pretty decent lasting power – similar to the Megashine Lipglosses.I must says i’m so in love with the colours I bought and I absolutely plan on getting more.
The Round-Up
Pros:
  • Non-sticky
  • Great color – looks great when worn alone
  • Moisturizing
  • Inexpensive

I own several shades of the Soft Matte Lip Cream and I love all of them! They go on so smooth, dry matte & soft, the pigmentation is there and they smell a little like cupcakes. I’m not a fan of scented lipstick person but these feels comfortable on my lips. I received many compliments when I wore this lip cream out.

I really couldn’t recommend these lip creams enough and hope to buy a few more. NYX Cosmetics Semi Matte Lip Cream are now a staple in my makeup back. With its moisturizing properties, I tend to reach for these more frequently, and not to mention I’m more likely to wear lip cream now. Talking about following the new trend, huh! And with a reasonable price point for these babies, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t pick up a lip cream.. or ten.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Would I recommend? Heck yes! I want every single shade in the Soft Matte line. They’re all beautiful! I’ll be going back to get more shares for the next post.  Stay tuned for more photos and more color swatches coming up soon.

Have you tried any of the NYX Semi Matte Lip Cream? Any favorites? I love to hear your comments.

Thanks so much for stopping by and comment.

Beauty Haul – Awesome Drugstore makeup edition!

Good morning friends! It’s Friday and I’m back with my usual beauty haul. I love shopping and especially when it comes to buying makeup. Yes, I am still saving for getting more makeup but these beauties are hard to resists. Again, I ended picking up a few of these wonderful beauty products which I like to share my thoughts with you guys. So, here’s what I picked:-

Beauty Haulbeauty haul, drugstore makeup
OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NL908 Front Lawn (net wt: 0.5 fl oz) for $9.95
OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NLT34 Uh-oh, Roll Down the window (net wt: 0.5 fl oz) for $9.95

opi nail polish Opi nail lacquer
OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NL908 Front Lawn / OPI Nail Lacquer Nagellack in NLT34 Uh-oh, Roll Down the window – why am I choosing a bright color shade of greens? Hmm… well, for one thing is that I love green.  From green sweater to green macha tea and same goes for nail polishes. So, I can’t turned away from these two evergreen colors. The darker shade of Uh-oh, reminds me of autumn and therefore it’s more like a treat for me. Review coming soon!
nyx lip cream vichy retinol sample
NYX Extreme Lip Cream in 05 Bonfire – first of all, I have to admit that this is the first time I picked up a lip cream from NYX. I’m at awe at this 2 in 1 combo, with lipstick and lip gloss combined. Added with this insanely pigmentation all in one. Oh my gosh! How awesome can it get? That’s a bonus point for this awesome lip cream. Love the sweet candy scents. The color choices are a little bit limited compared to the Extra Creamy lipstick. It has 11 shades in all. The price is reasonably priced and it’s great value for money.
Vichy Liftactiv Retinol HA Concentrate – well I got this as a freebie after purchasing some makeup products from my local drugstore. It’s a new generation wrinkle filler treatmentas stated at the back of the packaging. To be used daily in the morning on clean face and neck. One thing for sure is that the formula smell nice.
l'oreal glossy balm
L’oreal Glossy Balm in 250 Baby Berry – lovely color berry to keep chap lips away. The truth is that I was not really a lip gloss person but I have been recently since after trying the Smashbox Santigolden Hot Lava lip gloss, I’m hooked to lip gloss and lip balm. So, I have been picking up quite a bit of lip balms for the past few weeks where you will see in my other blogs. This l’oreal glossy balm looks very similar to Revlon Colorstay lip balm stains in crayon style packaging. I will be trying this out for review. It claims to have long lasting wear and gives a high dose of pigmented shine, smooth and conditioning to keep lips soft.
revlon neon nail art
Revlon Nail Art Neon in 12 Neon Light – oh wow! this is a nail polish that I must have. It has 10 bright funky shades. It’s like the starburst or skittles candy which is so yummy. So, that’s how I felt when I pick this up. I haven’t try this yet and so, I’ll post it on my next blog where I’ll do a mini home-manicure.
nyx lipstick
NYX Extra Creamy Round  Lipstick in 536 EROS – bright coral red creamy lipstick. On the website it says that this lipstick is mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvety texture and it resists wear and smudging. It’s a go-to lipstick. They have a jaw-dropping color shade selections which will fit anyone’s color taste. I personally love the consistency of this creamy and velvety finish. It glides wonderfully and love the bright color of red. I’m sure by now, many of you know that I’m a real big fan of red lipsticks. So, NYX lipsticks are one of my favorite drugstore brand.

That’s it for this week’s beauty haul and I know that I will have a long backlogged of reviews, I’m trying to get done as much as I can. So, I’ll have a new post up tomorrow 🙂

What is your favorite color nail polish from OPI?

For now, will chat with you later, lovelies !

Thanks for reading.

Top 5 Tuesday Favorites – Simply Red Lipsticks

Happy Tuesday guys! I’m back again with my Top 5 Tuesday Favorites and this week I’m going to write about red lipsticks. Yes!!!! my most favorite color lipsticks. I know we’re only in the fall and winter is yet to come but I’m just thrilled to share some of my red lipsticks today. I’m always on the hunt for a perfect red color lipsticks. They’re bold and beautiful and can definitely lift up appearance and moods. It’s noticeable and have that sexy look of romance.

top 5 tuesday fave - simple red lippes

I have here two high end and three drugstore’s lipsticks to talk about. They’re in no particular order.

closed up red lippies

From left to right:

Clinique Creamy Nude Soft Shine (03) Long lasting lipstick. The reason I chose this to be my top 5 fave is because I had it for more than 5 years and it’s one of my favorite nude color lipstick I ever found love in. I share this because of the quality and the formula of this lipstick that has not changed over so many years. It’s a real keeper. It glides very smoothly and has medium coverage. It has a soft shine finish which makes lips look moist. There are 11 color shades available and I love the merlot red and watermelon shades. They are all beautiful colors with long lasting wear. It’s selling for $19.00 at Sephora and for that price point, why not.

Sothys Rouge Ardent. My first love of red lipsticks was from wearing this Sothys Red color shade. It has such rich pigmentation and fabulous matte color finish. It feels velvety and it smell awesome. I had this for a decade and since I have found more red favorites I kept it in my collection. The packaging has changed but the color intensity is simply gorgeous. There are many gorgeous colors available at Sothys. Please check on their website if you are interested with their products. Caution when wearing red lipstick – to wear nude lip liner to outline lips to prevent red lipstick from running or bleeding.  And you, do you know Sothys? Do you like their products?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte in Really Red (006). I love, love this chilli red matte lipstick. Yes, it’s matte and I love it. The color might not be as long lasting as the sheen or sheer lipsticks but it still leaves some color stains behind. It doesn’t glide as smoothly but I love the high pigments formula. For a drugstore brand and the pricing, I’m totally going forward everything I used it up. I love this color so much I have another one as backup, just in case (chuckle!!!)

Rimmel Long Lasting Kate Moss in 107. This is also my favorite lip color. It has more berry red than tomatoes red. I found Kate Moss lipsticks awhile ago and so I grabbed one of this due to the velvety finish and beautiful pigmentation. It claims to be long lasting and it lasted me for 3 hours not 8 hours. This 107 color is the color Kate Moss wore on Rimmel’s website. Superb!!

I’m wearing the Kate Moss Long Lasting Lipstick by Rimmel in 107

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout Remarqueble (250). The color swatch of this colorburst is totaly amazing. I’m trully blown away by such mattifying balm it provides. Oh wow… a lip balm that’s so moisturizing and had a finish beyond comfort. It’s easy to carry around and easy to apply. No messy business and I like the packaging in a crayon type. It came with 10 dazzling color shades to select. It’s such a fun color to have.

There you have it! My top 5 favorite red lipsticks. What is your favorite lip product?

Next Top 5 Tuesday favorite will be …. (can you guess???)

As always, thank you so much for reading.

The Body Shop ~Beauty Haul!

It’s Friday!!!

Happy Friday friends. Guess what I am going to share with you today after my last Friday’s haul on NYX makeup. I’m always happy to do my haul and you are all an encouragement to me. Thank you.

When the Body shop have one of their sale of Buy 3, Get 2 Free, it takes quite a lot of willpower to resist it. To be honest, I’m quite a big fan of Body Shop on bath & body, skin care and makeup products. So, with sales like that, it’s going to take a tranquilizer to put me down (ha!ha!ha!).

So, here are some of the haul which I spent about $70.00 in the store. I got them several weeks ago. It’s just sitting there and waiting for my review. It’s strange how I didn’t do my haul on these earlier. I’m always excited to share newer hauls and so once I forgot then it will be sitting there until today. But don’t worry, the sales are still on their website.

The Body SHop Beauty Haul

The sales includes all bath & body, skin care, makeup, hair etc…  I will definitely be reviewing the majority of the items I’ve bought in due course, after I have been able to thorougly try them out.

body shop lippes

color swatch of lippies

Color Crush Shine Lipsticks in 201 and 130

I love lipsticks and I told myself that I’m just going to get one but ended up getting three in total. I paid $12.75 for each.

The Body Shop website says that it’s an irresistible lipstick that gives a sheer wash of colour with a sorbet-fresh shine. Each moisture-rich lipstick is infused with a delicate rose fragrance. I can’t agree more. I always prefer to go for matte and creamy finish but since it’s sooo irresistable I got them in sheer finish. What am I thinking? Hmmm…. probably impulse buying! But the colors are nice. Perfect to wear them for doing shopping errands.

Body Shop Sliver bullet Body Shop  lipstick

The Body Shop Lipstick in 07.

The trouble I have with body shop’s lipstick is that there is no color name description on their packaging or even on their website. They only use color code on its packaging label. I find it hard to distinguish which red and the other darker without having a color name to link. But I guess that’s just me. Overall, body shop’s products are  really amazing and I have been using their bath & body products for decades. I have confident in their products and that’s part of the reason why I branched out to their makeup section to try them out.

Body Shop Vit e moisturizermoisture cream body shop

Vitamin E Moisture Cream for All Skin Types on Daily protection and moisturization (1.7 oz)  $18.00

I need moisturizer for my dry skin and I picked this up for cloudy or rainy day’s wear. It doesn’t have SPF but I plan to wear it when the sun is hiding behind the clouds. It says to provide daily moisturize and hydrate skins leaving it feeling smooth and soft. I tried it in the store and I can feel the cold, soothing and soft cream on my skin. It has a lovely smell too. Can’t resist so this goes in my shopping basket.

body shop camolie makeup reomver makeup remover cream

Camomile Sumptous Cleansing Butter (net wt: 2.7 oz)

This is the product that caught my eyes. I have my usual Estee Lauder eyemakeup remover but this one looks unique. I like the tin can packaging. It’s a simple design but light in weight. It does have a gentle soothing smell which I really like. The salesperson tried it on my hand and it feels buttery and it does removed the lipstick swatches I made earlier while at the store. I have’nt had any butter type of makeup remover before and this one  impresses me.

Tea tree flawless bb cream

Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream in 03 Dark color shade (net wt: 1.3 fl oz)

Well,  I mentioned earlier that I bought these items several weeks ago when I still got my tan. So, the dark shade in 03 fit my skin tone but now as the weather gets colder I need a lighter shade of Medium. There isn’t much of color shades selection to choose from. It’s either Light, Medium or Dark. I might just get another medium for autumn till winter.

Tea tree always comes up with incredibly wonderful tea scents on body wash, lotions, tea tree oil to name a few which for me is quite rejunevating and therapeutical.

Since the promotion is still on and the weather is getting colder, I don’t mind getting a lighter color of Tea Tree BB cream now.

Products are never tested on animals, and all their products are 100% vegetarian.

So, there you have it. That’s all that I bought from the Body Shop on this week’s beauty haul.

If you bought anything from the 3 for 2 promotion, I’d love to know what you bought?

As always. thank you for reading.

Sharon xoxo

 

 

Best 5 Fall Color Lippies

Hi beauty junkies, standing proudly is my 5 favorite fall color lippies. Yay!!! shopping at Target again to get three more lipsticks in a darker shades for fall and also to wear it for halloween.

5 fall color lippies

Normally, I have hard time looking for a dark color lipsticks for fall that will look nice on me. Fortunately, this time round, I seems to be able to find a few which I really like. Is it because I got more brave to try darker colors or maybe there were more color selections available that works for me. Either way, I’m happy to get a few.

fall dark color lipstickstop 5 fall color swatch lippies

These are my Best 5 fall color lippies, from left to right: (not in particular order)

NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors in 511 CHAOS

Revlon Super Matte Lustrous Lipstick in 646 Sultry Sable

Maybelline Color Sensational  in 160 Fifth Ave Fuchsia

L’oreal Color Rich Serum in 503 Bright Burgundy

Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 11

I also make the color swatches and see how pigmented and mositurized these beauties. I always love red color lippies but these darker shades really is something else. Let me see how I like it!

nyx lippy

NYX in 311 CHAOS. I love NYX lippies especially with their huge selections of fun colors to choose from. Is the selections jaw-dropping? You bet! This is my second NYX lippies and I’m definitely going for more. Got to get them all! (Pokemon song). I fell in love with its rich pigmentation. Amazingly velvety and creamy texture. Love the color-payoff. It’s soft and glides so smoothly. Ohhhh!!! So incredibly awesome color.

revlon lipstick

Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks are my best friend. I love love, love it. I have many collections of Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks and got hooked by its’ dark plum shade. The color is intensely beautiful. I love the pigmentation and the long wear effect. It’s soft and creamy. So, be dazzled with its dazzling array of fabulous shades. I can’t stop to wanting more colors to be added to my collections.

maybelline lippies

This is my first encounter with Maybelline lipstick. I was amazed by the color shades options. I have another jaw-dropping moment seeing so many shades to choose and when I checked on their website they have but 62 shades, that’s insane! Or well my first purchase. I love other Maybelline makeup products and I always wanted to get the lipsticks. So, now I’m a proud owner of Fifth Ave Fuchsia lippy. Yay!!! The creamy formula is amazing and so is the smell of this lipstick. I wanted to pick a darker color but this one is irresistable. So, instead I got this and have been wearing it the whole day. Will I be hooked with Maybelline’s lippies? Time will tell.

l'oreal lippes

L’oreal lipstick in Bright Burgundy is my next choice of fave. I had L’oreal lippies for ages but this is a new one that I’m going to give it a shot. It says it has serum in this formula. Serum! Don’t feel any different except moist and sheer finish. Is it just me or do I always happened to picked up sheer finish lipstics? Some of you may know that I love creamy and velvety lipsticks. As for sheer, I’ll get around with it. The color in the packaging does looked dark but when I did my color swatch, it looks more nude than burgundy! As for the moisture, you bet it’s moist and I felt it’s a bit tacky at first. It doesn’t have color depth though. This lippy does smells good. It’s be good to wear when the weather gets dryer.

kate moss lippies

Kate Moss lasting lipstick by Rimmel. This No 11 is a special dark red dark lipstick. After admiring myself with this lip color ont he mirro. I do conclude that this color shade look perfect on me. I like it very much especially the velvety texture. It has matte and soft finish. It has a swell fragrant smell on it. It has 10 sexy shades to select. For the price, I will go for more especially with such great value and quality. I like the No 9 too (in violet shade). Perhaps, I’ll pick it up on my next trip to Target.
What is your favorite fall color lippies? Please share and leave comment below. Love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (The Rio Collection)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Alright …. summer is almost coming to and end and I wouldn’t want to end my summer not giving my first impression on these amazing Revlon Super Lustrous Rio Collection lipsticks. I got mine at Target and it’s priced for $7.99. I picked up two of my favorite shades in Carnival Spirit and Sultry Samba.

For this Rio Collection, available in 3 lovely shades of : –

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Carnival Spirit -a sheer  coral orangy (shine) . It is moist and with light texture. I also picked up this Carnival Spirit to compare the sheer and matte formula. I wore it for more than 3 hours and the color still stays on my lips eventhough the moisture has dried up a little. I wore this as a lip gloss since the texture is very sheer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Sultry Samba – a matte velvety bright pink. It is drier than the other two formulas. It is creamy and the matte stays on without color transferring. I wore them for my makeup review and to my suprised the bright pink doesn’t seems too pinkish on my lips. I have warm undertone and usually pink is the color that I will avoid. Well, Revlon has done it again. I like this Sultry Samba already.
  • Brazilian Tan – a creamy formula. It would be perfect if you are warm tone and who like nude color for everyday wear.

This is one of my favourite drugstore lipstick brand and Revlon hasn’t disappointed me yet. I would love to see more of Revlon’s matte lipsticks in the drugstores.

Have you tried any of these lippies? Please leave comment below.

 

Thanks for reading.
