New drugstore lippies swatch!

Hi guys! I redyed my hair, but haven't taken any pics yet. I promise I will post some soon, so please bear with me.

I got 4 new drugstore lipsticks before leaving for winter break, but I haven't posted anything about them, so here is to make that up to you.

I got two Revlon's from their new l/s collection (the one w/ Jessica Alba in the ad). I got one called Baby Pink and one called Soft Nude (creative, huh?) Their packaging is more on the matte/sophisticated type, very grown-up.

I also got two from Rimmel's new Moisture Renew collection, one in Spotlight Beige, and one in Pink Chic. I really like the packaging, especially the crown!!

I admit, the pinks and beiges look awfully alike from the two brands, so I decided to make a comparison.

Spotlight beige V. Soft Nude under flash.
As you can see, Spotlight Beige is a lot warmer and has more color to it. Spotlight Beige is A LOT easier for the general public to pull off because it's not a flat out nude color. I didn't look like a corpse wearing it. I feel that Soft Nude is a matte dupe to MAC Freckletone l/s. The texture is a lot drier and more "editorial".

Pink Chic V. Baby Pink
Pink Chic is more on the creamier side. The color is like a Strawberry-n-cream toned. There's no shimmer, and it's very moisturizing. If you like colors like MAC's A Rose Romance lipstick and Maybelline's Pink Please l/s, you will LOVE this color. Trust me, the texture is to DIE for!! Baby pink, on the other hand, is what I'd like to cool a hooker pink. Yes it's light, yes it looks beautiful in the tube, but on my lips the silver shimmer is just way too overwhelming.

Swatches together!

T-B: Baby Pink, Pink Chic, Spotlight Beige, and Soft Nude.


L-R: Baby Pink, Pink Chic, Spotlight Beige, and Soft Nude.

I apologize for not taking any lip swatches, but since the weather is so dry my lips have been incredibly chapped. I will post pics when the weather warms ups. :)

Overall, I STRONGLY recommend the Rimmel Moisture Renew l/s, 5/5!! The Revlon ones....eh, not so much.

BTW, please take a glimpse of my life:
Fun.

Thanks for reading y'all! Night!
