I've had these Lasting Looks Lip Cremes ($10.95) in my beauty stash for yoooooooooooonks. They are actually very decent lipsticks, pretty much everything you could ask for -- pigmented, creamy, buttery and moisturising with an average lasting power.
Most of all, they're super affordable!
I'm not sure why they haven't made my favourites.
Perhaps it's because I've been more into matte lip products rather than anything glossy. Or I'm just taking them for granted. Eep.
There are 7 shades to choose from, and ranges from reds to pinks and mauves.
Let's get swatchin', shall we?
A very bright coral, almost pops against my skin (y'know one of those "shaaanxo" lip colours?). My top pick from this range, and also the most used shade. Just because it's coral! Hehe.
A tad too cool-toned for me, as you can see. I don't usually go near these pinks, so this one will probably sit there to collect dust... eep.
A bright creme pink. It's a really bold shade, quite lovely -- right up my alley, but most of the time, I use this as a lip tint to dab over the lips to brighten up the face.
As with most lip collections, there's always that one shade that you'll deem as the "weird shade". Till Plum is the one for me. It's not really a "vampy" colour to me, just a muted grape-toned lippy. Really different!
Somewhat of a bright red! Quite warm-toned, this one.
Lookin' real similar to FOR-RED-ER, but it's deeper and darker!
Really wearable colour, the most MLBB-like shade of the collection. I sometimes reach for this shade, especially for those days when looking at my lipstick stash just confuses the heck out of me! I won't deny that sometimes it does make my face look a bit washed out though.
My top pick is Love Berry and Coral On. Many Moons is a unique one to have too!
On the same day I swatched these, I was also swatching the Rimmel Provocalips. Altogether, I swatched 15 lippies on that day!
Thankfully, these weren't brutally clingy on the lips like those Provocalips, else my lips would be gone!
