You know you’re a beauty addict when new colours come out for a product you like and you think nothing strange about picking up all the new colours (there’s only 4 of them) until the cashier asks you if you’re buying a present for someone since you have so many lipsticks…
I told the cashier that no, I just liked all the new colours but it did make me wonder haha. I forget sometimes that not everyone is as awesome
obsessed as all of my online girls and guys about makeup until moments like that.
I feel like the lip butters were the makeup trend last year, and I think drugstore wise, revlon won the battle for a moisturizing, well pigmented balm lipstick hybrid. I use them regularly at work as they add a bit more polish to my look without being so pigmented that I definitely need a mirror to apply and without making me look too done up! So when new colours were announced this spring, I crossed my fingers that they’d come to Canada too… And luckily I was right!
These swatches were done on bare skin. I favour the first two for work (especially Pink Lemonade, which is the second shade) and the last two more for when I wear a full face (they are much brighter)! All four colours are permanent additions to the existing line.
