Do you remember my most recent Lipstick Bandits post? I was going on about how I didn’t know what coral really is, so I picked a soft and safe shade from Chanel. Then, I read the others’ posts and finally got an idea. I had it in my stash all along! It’s by Revlon – the Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral. DUH! It’s all in the name, isn’t it?
I’m sure you’ve been reading about these new Dior Addict Extremes and glosses. There are 4 star shades, them being Spring Ball, Diablotine, Delice and Princess. As you know, lip colours show up differently against different skin tones. My skin tone tends to pull out all the pinks in a lip colour, while others might pull out the oranges (hi Sunny! Heh!).
Corals. Not the ones you find by the beach, but the colour. What is a coral shade? There are coral pinks, coral reds, true corals, whatchamacallit corals. I remember a little Twitter conversation with fellow Bandits Xiao and Larie and coral was described as pinkorangered. Instead of pink orange and red, I read Pink or Angered. That sounds about right >.< So in my opinion, corals are colours tinged with orange. But then again, how do I know if it’s orange or coral? Or maybe peach since peach is orange and pink, right? Hence the confusion. I don’t even know if this lipstick I’m featuring is considered coral. So keep your opinions to yourself because if anyone of you disagree with me, Larie promised to punch you in the face. HAHAHA! Also, I KNOW I’m not the only one confused. This will be interesting!
My first lipstick was from Revlon. I’m sure of it! I was probably 16 or 17 and back then, it was this long wearing matte lipstick named Bronze, or something. It was the late 90′s and browns were IT for lips. Anyway, I’ve always thought Revlon made great lipsticks. I recently had a penchant for Revlon’s line of lipsticks called the Super Lustrous Lipsticks. Today, I want to show you the first 2 I bought. I then went back to got some more because I really liked them!
I knew I had to try the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense. I have a few of their chubby sticks even though I haven’t written about them, and they are really moisturizing and lovely on the lips. When I read that there’s a newer version which brings more pigmentation, I had to have it. When I learned there is a nude shade that pretty much garners RAVES, that is it. Curviest Caramel was mine! And the best part is, I snagged it right before my no buy *insert evil laugh*!
