I don’t know how but somehow all the lip products on bargains catch my eyes 😀 . The past few months, I am more into lip products and I am willing to try some new colors and see if they suit my skin tone. Just to let you all know, I didn’t buy all these in just one day. I think I got these lipstick in the month of August 🙂 .
Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Color in Pink Punch
I found these in the Target in the clearance section for about $4 or so. I love the packaging, Its black and square and the best thing is that you know the color of the lipstick by the top of the packaging. It is a sturdy plastic container. The formula is really good. I love the feel of it on my lips. It glides on so smoothly and feels like a cream lip stick. I wasn’t sure about the color when I saw this. It is a bold pink, a little bit on the cooler side. I know that cool based lipsticks doesn’t suit my skin tone. But I kept wanting to try these lipsticks but wasn’t willing to pay $10 for it 🙂 .
Finally decided to buy it. On my first day of wearing it, hubby was like ” What’s that on your lips?” 😀 and I thought it was not too bad with my skin tone. But apparently its just too bright and I had to tone it down. So I first applied a medium purple lip liner and applied this on top of it and it actually looked good 🙂 . These lipsticks last for pretty good time. I wouldn’t say it was long-lasting but with the lip liner, It was pretty good. Would I buy this lipstick again? I guess I would 😀 . I really would love to try other colors.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Berry Rose
I got this in Rite-Aid when they had 40% sale on Rimmel. I didn’t go there to buy this exactly but wanted to check the other stuffs. I don’t know why I wanted to try this color. Somehow all the lipsticks I buy are mostly on the pink or the berry side 🙂 . I think those colors look good with my skin tone. I have always loved Rimmel from my Dublin days 🙂 . The packaging is so cute, Its shiny light purple and somehow I can’t resist these 😀 . The formula is so good, its glides on smoothly and it is moisturizing which is great. The color is a deep berry with shimmer. On my lips, I can see the shimmers and I am not a fan of it. The glitters have a multi color shimmer to it. I like this one on a day where I don’t wear any makeup. I just apply this on the go like a trip to the grocery store or to the Montessori to leave Toddler A 🙂 . I will definitely will get these lipsticks but I don’t think I will go for this color.
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in Barely There
:Sign: This brand is one of my favorite low-budget ones from my Dublin days. I remember I used to get this when I needed a makeup fix. I love their nail polishes, eyeshadow and lip gloss. I have never tried their lipsticks, somehow I thought they won’t suit my skin tone since most of them had shimmers in it. And when I visited Fred Meyer some time ago and saw new products section, I was intrigued so I went and checked it out. They had a new long-lasting lipstick and when I opened the tester, every one of them was a cream formula and the best part, they were just $3. Of course, I had to try them 😀 . I swatched every one of them and decided to stick to some nude colors since I wanted them in my collection. I am not a NUDE lip color person. Somehow it just washed me out.
But they had 2 nude colors and Barely there is the one I like because it had a mauve tint to it where the other one had a beige tint. The packaging is a simple black one and the formula is actually good. It is very smooth, creamy and did last some time on my lips. For $3, I will definitely check out all their colors in the next few months 😀 . I did like On the catwalk and Dare to wear colors. Maybe next time 😀 I will get them.
Essence Glow Tinted Lip Balm in Glam up
This is also one of the new products of this brand. You all know about my obsession about lip balms 😀 and I got this color because it looked peachy. But when I applied it, It looks mostly a very very sheer peach color. It didn’t stain my lips at all and it was just an ok lip balm. I don’t think I would be buying these any time soon 🙂 .
