Swatcharama - Evil Shades Lipsticks

Here are the lip swatches of all the Evil Shades Deviant Lipsticks I own.


Reign (this colour has been discontinued)

Bane (Full Size)

Bane (sample)

Cursed Beauty



Diabolical (This colour is out of stock until further noticed. Unfortunately one of the ingredients has been discontinued and Andrea has yet to find a lip safe alternative. I'm very sad as it's possibly my favourite and I only have a sample :(  )



Hell Froze Over (a sheerer formula than the rest)

Obscurity (GREAT dupe for Illamasqua Disciple!)

Primrose Path



Zirna (sheerer formula than the rest)

If anyone would like shade descriptions just ask! :)


  1. Obscurity and Fiendish are gorgeous!

  2. YAY YAY YAY! Thanks for the swatches! I was just going to order a winks and kisses gift set and couldn't decide which lipsticks.......this helps so much! I love all the lip swatches on your page, I am jealous of your cool lip colour stash! Also, thanks for the Disciple dupe tip, I can't get my hands on Illamasqua very easlily where I live!

  3. Does Evince really look that silvery in person on you? I have this color, and it looks nothing like that on me :( Are you wearing it over bare lips?

  4. You have such lovely lips!

  5. beautiful lips, Stiletto and Bane are my favs out of these :) Ordered them early last month, hoping they will arrive soon :)

  6. Cheerful Fawn:
    Uh huh! I just picked up full sizes of both :)

    You're welcome! Glad I could be helpful :) Disciple and Obscurity aren't exactly the same but they are certainly very close.

    It looks exactly like the photo on me. My lips were bare and they're not particularly pigmented. Maybe you got a dodgy one :/ If it's completely different maybe you should contact their customer services.

    Thank you! I had hellishly sore chapped lips the day I did this so I'm surpised I'm getting complimented on them :P

    Thank you! Stiletto is one of my favourites too, it's just gorgeous. Hope you get them soon :)

  7. Stiletto looks JUST like Revlon's Superlustrous lipstick in Fuschia fusion. :) I definitely want to try these out now.

  8. OMG, Ardour... I need! Obscurity is super awesome as well.

  9. I need Ardour, Stiletto, Obscurity and Devilista! Great swatches ^__^

  10. The blues are so bright, it's a pity she hasn't got any greens. Obscurity is especially lovely, and with the price tag on Illamasqua stuff being enough to make me go lightheaded, I am feeling kind of covetous. I heard that people with yellowy tones in their skin shouldn't use blue though? Dunno, my geekery is in areas other than makeup...

  11. does the ardour one look orange when it's just on it's stick? I'm interested in finding an orange lipstick, all I've come across so far is coral.

  12. Y:
    Not seen that one! Stiletto is a gorgeous colour though, the blue sheen is more prominent in real life.

    I ordered full sizes of both of those and Fiendish too :)

    Good choices! Devilista is gooorgeous, a really creamy slightly blue red, but I have so many reds already I don't feel like I can justify getting a full size :P

    Yeah greens would be lovely! And yeah, Illamasqua is obviously a lot more high end, things like the packaging are obviously higher quality, and some of their products are just amazing, but in my opinion they're lipsticks aren't one of them. I'm posting some Illamasqua lipstick swatches later including Disciple so you can see how close it is to Obscurity :) Also never heard that about yellow skintones not wearing blue but maybe it explains why so many people say I look good in blue lips, my skin is basically all pink :P

    Ardour is definately orange, not coral, but it's a very red based orange if that makes sense. If you want a more yellow orange Barry M do one and for a 'true' orange Mac's Morange is pretty good :)


I love comments and try to reply to every one i get.
