So i managed to try on every one of my new samples of lip sticks to show you what they look like on my lips. The consistency of a few made it difficult to get a clean application, i think usually this had to do with my having difficulty using the samples (applied them with a lip brush this time around) but a couple had a slightly 'grainy' texture. The majority of them were creamy and absolutely gorgeous. There are so many i want/NEED full tubes of!
This one is beautiful, but the description said it has green sparkles and i could not see any myself.
I found this one the hardest to apply evenly, it was just a bit grainy.
Amazing ever so slightly sparkling true red. Smells delicious.
Gorgeous sparkling hot pink.
Another slightly grainy one.
AMAZING shimmery lime green! So opaque and so creamy!
Nice metallic silver with a hint of blue.
This one i also found difficult to apply, but not as bad as some of the others.
One of my favourites, a gorgeous cyan blue.
Amazing colour, brown with a green duochrome.
Beautiful creamy opaque red. Discontinued now.
Lovely slightly muted dark piny red colour. Smells absolutely edible. Discontinued sadly.
Slightly coppery reddy orange.
Dark vampy red.
This one is a stunning green with gold, but was a bit dry and not as easy to apply as the rest.
This colour is replacing raspberry, it's similar but a bit more muted. I prefer raspberry personally.
Lovely bluey lilac shimmer.
darkish greyish blue.
Blood red with gold glitter.
An odd greyish/purplish dark red.
Beautiful bright, light coraly orange shimmer.
Deep, rich blue. Beautiful.
Blood red. I think it's the same as Glittering Poinsettia but without the glitter.
Beautiful bright fuschia pink.
So the colours i definately have to get soon are:
Azalea, Coralines Kiss, Glittering Poinsettia, Pumpkin, Lillian (naturally :P), Serenity, Slime, Valentine and Very Cherry.
Ones i love but am not sure i need include Rustic (so gorgeous but i'm not sure brown lipstick suits me, have never worn one before), Blueberry (again it's beautiful but i have a lot of blue lipsticks already) and Watermelon. I also want Raspberry and Metallic Maiden which have been discontinued, but maybe Melissa has some lying around the stock room :P
I absolutely adore these lipsticks and can't wait until i have the money to buy some!
I've recieved comments from a couple of people who have recieved samples and full tubes of colours i found grainy and they've been the same creamy quality as the others (and recieved some samples of ones i found great quality grainy too), so the reason it was hard to apply because they had dried up a little in the baggies, not because of the formula. So if you really like one of the colours but were worried because of my finding it grainy don't worry, the full tubes are apparently all wonderful and not at all dry and grainy :)
