Lots of lip

It seems these days everyone, if they weren't already, is getting into lipsticks. I remember in high school getting a case of Estee Lauder products that contained a dark red lipstick and a orangey pink lipstick. I played around with them, but never wore them out. But there is something about a lipstick that makes me want to keep buying them, even if I don't wear them out. It's probably the packaging, sometimes I think lipstick looks good enough to eat. I especially enjoy Revlons lipsticks for their packaging, I love the gold and black that just make any color in the container, sexy.

The first lipstick I had bought for myself was Coral Berry from Revlon, I bought it probably about 3 months ago and love it. Since then I have been wanting to buy some lipsticks, but I wasn't sure what colors would look good on my skin, I have been confused about that whole "warm and cool" tones for a while. I can't really tell if I am pale or yellow. I guess it depends on who you're asking (for me at least.)

 Last week I bought 3 Wet N Wild lipsticks because I wanted to test out colors and since they are inexpensive, I gave them a shot. But two days ago, I got lucky. I went to my local grocery store H.E.B to find that Revlon products had in-store coupons. Thank goodness I went into the aisle because I hadn't planned on it originally. Revlons Super Lustrous Lipsticks retail at 4.97 at H.E.B and I really didn't want to purchase them as testers for that price, but two days ago they had a 3.00 off coupon for Revlon excluding eyes, nails, and tools (which they had a 2.00 off coupon instead) I thought I was gonna go crazy and buy them all. I was so excited to be getting them at the same price at Wet N Wild lipsticks.

So here I will share with you the shades I bought as well as the shades I bought from Wet N Wild.

From left to right:
Certainly Red, Love that Pink, Sky Pink, Primrose, Coral Berry, Cora-Line, 24 Carrot Gold, Dollhouse Pink


The first 5 are (clearly) from Revlon and the last 3 are from Wet N Wild

In the same order, here are swatches, first without flash, then with flash.




REVLON
All the colors were Creme with the exception of of Sky Pink which is Matte. I really liked all the colors in the tube and when applied I liked them all with the exception of the Matte Sky Pink. It felt really dry, and unwearable. When applied with gloss or chap stick, Sky Pink would probably be wearable but of course, wouldn't be Matte. I can't wait to wear Certainly Red in the Fall!


WET N WILD
With these lipsticks I think the lighter the color the worse it will apply. Cora-Line applies well, 24 Carrot gold applies so-so, probably better with a gloss on top, and Dollhouse Pink is very dry. I like that I can test the colors out with my skin but I will probably end up turning them into a creamier color or mixing them with a gloss. Overall I think they are worth 2.00

Would you like to see any of these colors on my lips? I'm a complete newb at taking photos of my mouth. They come out so blurry but I will try it again tomorrow and update the post (hopefully). I am definitely excited to get more colors from Revlon before this sale ends!

I am also considering doing a Revlon Lipstick giveaway so if you have any color suggestions feel free to comment!

    1. I was speaking of myself as well! I like both brands, I like the fact that I can test out colors and reuse the ones that don't do good on there own. I will have to check out your page to see your lipsticks!

      Thanks for reading!

  2. ahh I'm glad someone else had the same problem with the matte sky pink from revlon! It kind of builds up on your lips as you reapply it over the day and loses the cool effect. The whole reason I bought that one was because I REALLY want Snob by MAC, but I can never bring myself to spend the money... sigh

    1. Are you saying you are happy I had a problem??? haha jk!

      It's hard for me to bring myself to spend the money on anything but clothes, and if it's makeup then I go for mascara or foundation. It sure does build up, and I hate it, I am glad it's the only Matte lipstick I bought because I fear it may be the same with them all. I guess I can try one more out and see. Maybe it depends on the color, I think lighter colors seem to build up more and apply ugly!!

      Thanks for reading! (:

  3. sorry I don't mean I'm happy haha whoops!!
    I don't have a problem with the creme Revlon ones which I own, but it does really help to wear with lipliner. I find that makes all the difference :) Thanks for sharing!

  4. These are beautiful! I feel like I buy a lot of lip products, but don't wear them as often as I should...or I'l stick to just one color for a long time lol. Ooh I'd love to see these on you! I can just imagine what it's like trying to get a clear picture of your lips...I think you can do it! :D
    I don't know if I would wear it, but Dollhouse Pink looks stunning!

    1. Same here, They are just so pretty to look at but sometimes I feel like I am wearing them at the wrong time.

      Dollhouse pink reminds me of Nicki Minaj lips for sure. I put it on and immediately felt like her! Its a cute color, but not on me haha.

    1. I probably should be looking up swatches but I was already at the store so I just had to buy them.

      Start of with a color you know works with your skin or is similar to a lip gloss you have.

  12. I've gotten really into lipsticks this year too! Last year I was too scared to wear bold colours on my lips, but now I love it!
    I also have Sky Pink and was disappointed with how dry it was. I actually found that lipstick at my local flea market though so it only cost me $2!
    And I've been dying to try the Rimmel London Kate Moss lipsticks!

    1. Your skin would look great with a berry red I think, along with so many other colors!

      Yeah, what shame about Sky Pink, I am hoping I can mix it with something to make it creamy. I need to go to a flea market if I can get it for 2 with out a coupon lol

      I bought one of those Kate Moss ones! I will let you know how it works out! I got it for my grandmother lol but Its so pretty
