lipstick swatches

1. Revlon Lip Butter - Candy Apple £7.99 here
With this being a 'lip butter' it didn't really fit in with my Favourite Red Lipsticks Post but it has been my most worn lip product for the passed 5 months! I'm not going to ramble on about the formulation,  packaging etc everything that could be said has been said several times over. 
I love how easy this is to wear and apply (no mirror needed), it's been in my coat pocket since around September as its perfect for a pop of colour on the go. Its a gorgeous sheer red orange and builds really nicely. I wouldn't be without it.

2. YSL Glossy Stain - 13 Rose Tempera £23.50 here
I felt this didn't fit in with my Favourite Pink Lipsticks Post with it being a lipstick/gloss/stain hybrid but I couldn't leave it out. Its definitely one of my most used lip products. 
Again the formulation and packaging has been yapped on about over and over so I won't get into that except to say I love it!
Rose Tempera is a yellow based pink which would suit most skintones, it really brightens up my complexion. 
The only negative I can say about this shade is that it does give your teeth a slight yellow tinge as do most yellow based lipsticks however if your teeth are well looked after I wouldn't worry.

3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Wild Orchid £7.49 here
This didn't fit in with any of my favourite lipsticks posts. 
Wild Orchid a dupe for MAC Show Orchid is a very purple fuchsia with strong blue undertones which unlike the former really makes your smile sparkling white.
This isn't a most reached for lippie but I really do love it. I prefer to wear Wild Orchid on a night out or in the summer as it really packs a punch and can be quite in your face.
Wild Orchid is nice and creamy on application and goes on really nicely, it's opaque with one swipe, wears well and has a lovely sheen.
