Over the last few weeks I’ve picked up three new tubes of lipstick from the drugstore (actually four…but I’ve lost one of them which is sad) and I thought I’d do a quick post and show them off!
Covergirl Star Wars Lipstick – 30
I’m not going to lie, I really only bought this because I wanted something from the Star Wars collection. CVS only had one shade on display so at the time I thought that there was only one lipstick in the line (I have since learned that I am wrong, there are some really pretty shades in this collection actually and several of them are very unusual shades to find in the drugstore). It’s a slightly frosty cranberry shade.
Have you seen the trailer for the new Star Wars? I’m stoked!
Milani – Matte Flirty
This is a beautiful shade of dark plum but this lipstick is a hot mess. I have never owned a lipstick that clung this visibly to every dry patch and that went so patchy so quickly in my entire life. I have no idea what’s up with this sucker but I’m throwing it out. Milani lipstick usually works really well for me and other shades in the matte line are fine, but Matte Flirty is no bueno.
Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipstick – Newly Berried
The Fierce Effects Lipstick line seems to be pretty new and there are a few really unique looking shades in the range. If I recall correctly, I picked the most subdued shade that was in stock. I haven’t actually worn this yet so I can’t speak to the quality but I’ll report back once I have actual opinions.
Have you tried any of these? I’m particularly interested to know if you have Milani Matte Flirty and if so, what you think of it. Did I get a dud?
- Overall I’ve been pretty cautious in my acquisition of new makeup recently but Sephora got me with the annual VIB sale. Haulage coming soon!
- At this moment I’m so hungry I am actually considering eating celery.
- Just kidding, I’m not THAT hungry.
