Since christmas, I’ve been going a little crazy in the lipstick department. I got two for christmas, and then I had some gift cards to burn and some gifts to return.
I got four lipsticks:
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick Matte: 004 Coral
L’Oréal Color Riche: 236 Organza
Clarins Joli Rouge: 701 Orange Fizz
Rimmel London The Only 1: 600 Peachy-Beachy (Christmas gift)
There was a clearance on Rimmel London’s Apocalips so they were a fraction of their original price, so I had to get the remaining five colors they had. These are in between lipsticks and lip gloss in formula – they apply like a lip gloss, but feels and wears like a lipstick. Especially the matte colors look just like lipstick. There’s this little gap inside the applicator where the product is ‘stored’, so you get a ton of product on the applicator.
The Lip Stains
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Velvet Stain: 50 Universal (Christmas gift)
Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Transferproof lip tint + balm: 720 Forever Walnut
This lip tint from Rimmel is the whole reason this lipstick mania began. This one is my all-time favorite lipstick, but they have discontinued this line, so I have been searching for a dupe. The one that I could find that came the closest was the L’Oréal Color Riche Lipstick in 236, but even that did not feel totally right. Eventually I just searched the interwebs and found a seller on eBay who sold these, so I got two, so I have a backup once they become impossible to find. It is the perfect nude, but-still-there color for my skin tone which darkens my lips and leaves my teeth looking whiter.
I think I’m set in the lipstick department for quite some time now!
