Hey! Hey! Happy Friday! :D
Before going out to do work and to end the night by watching my BF's play called Moliere PMS by The Egg Theatre Co (please watch! Details HERE!), I will quickly swatch and review these new lipsticks made by my friend, Liz Lanuzo of Project Vanity, with Pink Sugar. While I'm at it, I should go and wear one of these to inspire my mood today!
PINK SUGAR PROJECT VANITY THESE LIPS DON'T LIE LIPSTICKS IN DETAIL
Pink Sugar's new lipsticks come in crayon form and in a smooth, demi- matte finish. Currently, they come in four shades.
Formula is rich and soothing; it's creamy and moisturizing with just the hint of hardness so it won't stray beyond my lip lines; someone asked me how this compares with its closest counterparts, Revlon Color Burst Matte Balm and Happy Skin Shut Up And Kiss Me Moisturizing lipstick: my take is these are a bit more balmy than Happy Skin's and a lot more moisturizing than Revlon's.
PINK SUGAR X PROJECT VANITY THESE LIPS DON'T LIE LIPSTICKS IN ACTION
LOVE AT FIRST SWIPE
Deep, rosy brown.
My most favorite shade in this collection. It's an earthy brown with a hint of rose to give complexion a bit of glow. This shade actually reminds me of MAC Spirit, one of my most favorite MAC lipstick shades.
READY IN FIVE
- Cool pink.
Ready In Five actually reminds me of Liz's website; I also think this is the kind of Pink that she's really into. For me, however, it's too bright and I wish it were a bit warmer. I think this shade will fare better on fair and medium skin tones.
WOKE UP LIKE THIS
- Pinky rose.
NOTHING TO WEAR
- Deep berry
Liz is the person whom I always see sporting deep plum lipsticks if she feels like sporting a dark lip so it's just natural for her to include one in this collection. It's your good ol' deep berry that you can rely on if you want to sport a bold lip. My only concern is it tends to look a bit patchy in the middle. This observation is not unique to this product as I have several berry lipsticks that have the same issue also - I don't know why it's that, but methinks it must be the pigments.
Finish is demi- matte; it's the closest thing to wearing matte lipsticks, especially if you have really dry lips. Staying power is pretty good as it fades gradually (and nicely at that) after a few sips of coffee and a meal. It has no scent and that's what I like about it. No dryness whatsoever experienced with this product.
Pink Sugar X Project Vanity These Lips Don't Lie Lipsticks have a great formula and that's what stood out for me. The shades are all classics, but with a personal touch of Liz.
