Lip Product Swatches (Duty-Free Day)

Hey all! Finally I have the post with the swatches for the lip products of the duty-free haul. Enjoy!

Lorac Lotsa Lip Plumping lipgloss in Foxy & Trixy:

Foxy is kind of a hard colour to describe for me. It's like a muted red colour, but it's in the same colour family as a burgundy, although lighter. Do you get what I mean? It's odd really, but the photos will show you exactly what I mean. 

Trixy is definitely easier to describe lol. A lovely lilac shimmer. A lilac gloss, weird you know, but it actually looks great on the lips on it's own. Both  of these glosses have a slightly pearly finish and microglitters. Neither of them feel grainy, but go one really smooth and are very high shine. They first time I tried it on, the brush-tip applicator tricked me into squeezing out too much of the product, so the colour was very strong and rich.








Revlon Colorbrust Lipgloss in Papaya & Pink Ice:

I absolutely LOVE Papaya. From the first time I saw it in KoharuUwara's YouTube video, I fell in love with it. Such a gorgeous coral colour, and it's great on it's own. I love just wearing lipgloss, It doesn't feel as made up as wearing lipstick on a everyday basis, and this gloss is perfect for that. It has the right amount of colour and it's not sticky at all! LOVE IT~!

Pink Ice is a nice colour too, I actually thought of using it to mute out bold colours, when you want a to make a "look at me" lip colour more everyday wearable. I haven't tried it for that purpose yet, as I haven't been wearing many lipsticks at work (I've been sticking to lip balm at work since the A/C is so drying to my lips).  But this definitely is a beautiful colour on its own, and again not sticky.


  

Just a close up of the applicator. It's a flattened doe-foot applicator, really puts on the colour well.

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick- Peach; Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Twilight and Passion:

I haven't tried this lipstick on my lips actually, not feeling it at the moment, but it's great to have in my collection for different looks. The formula is really soft and feels very moisturising when i swatched it on my hand. How ever, the colour's a bit sheer in my opinion, but that may be the fact that it's such a light colour.



Of these lipstains, I personally own Passion (Twilight's my sister's), and I really like the colour. the First time I tried it, I totally overdosed on the colour, probably due to my poor lighting. A note to remember, these are VERY DRYING. I was in A/C a lot the first time I tried this and since I forgot my lipbalm, I was in a real dilemma. I practically licked it off until I had no more on my lips. Not pretty LOL. Since that time, I've moisturiser before and after the application, but I think I may moistuurise a bit too much prior, because I never get back a colour as intense as the first day. I really don't want my lips to be chapped (I usually pat off  the balm but that doesnt seem to work).

Any suggestions for this would be greatly appreciated. :)

Passion is a bright pink, kind of a barbie pink but not as outrageous unless you overdose like I did lol. While Twilight is a subdued wine red.







Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Raisin Rage, Black Cherry & Va Va Violet:

I la la love these lipsticks. All are very pigmented and moisturising. I personally own Black Cherry and I have been wearing that like crazy, Love it! You might remember it from my haul video for these products.  The colours are nice and deep with just one swipe. It totally amazed me!

Va Va Violet is a lovely deep blue-toned purple.. or violet as the name suggests lol, While Raisin Rage would make a great everyday lip colour, a nice raspberry rose. Finally Black Cherry is a wine red, but  way more vibrant than the Lipstain above in Twilight.








Hope it wasn't too much of a photo overload! But I wanted to make sure you could see all the colours. I always check other blogs for swatches of products I'm thinking of buying. It's very helpful.

Have a fabulous New Year and have it safely!!

XOXO
