Well hello, lovers of make-up!!
Today I have for your some swatches of lip products that I bought from Evil Shades. (I bought them, they were not provided to me, except for Zicke which was a free sample.)
My order contained more than just lip stuffs, but I didn't have time to swatch that stuff yesterday. So, you get lip stuff first.
The Company: Andrea is super awesome and sweet! Go follow her on Twitter! (And me, for that matter.)
Shipping: Super quick! My order, with custom eyeshadow, shipped the next day! Hooray! :D The only thing was that some of my shadows were escaping from their jars. :[ I think next time I will ask for sifters if she has them available.
Prices: Holy canolies?! REALLY?! That was my reaction when I saw her prices. I bought one Large Gift set and one Mini Set for, I think $22. Two lipsticks, four lipglosses, five shadows. Glosses are $3.50, lipsticks are $4.75, and shadows are $3.50, and all are pretty gosh ding dang amazing!! Here is the link again: Evil Shades. She does have blushes which I will probably order samples of next time I order.
- These may or may not be sticky to some people. I don't usually have a problem with stickiness since my hair tends to be short and I don't get hair on my lips very often.
- Very high gloss! Love it.
- Smell is fantastic!! Yum!
- I am so/so on the jar. I kind of like it because these are the kind of glosses/lip products I can see actually wanting to use a brush with, espcially the color "Deadly."
Lethal Kiss - "Peachy Shimmer" (from EvilShades.com)
To me, this is a pinky, peachy color that doesn't amp up the color of my lips the way Guilty as Sin does. I really like it as an everyday gloss. The shimmer is subtle but it also has silver sparkles in it, which is a cute added touch! You can kind of see them on the edges of my lips.
Guilty as Sin - "Pink/Fuschia with glass fleck" (from EvilShades.com)
This is pink. Awesome sparkly, shimmery fuschia-y pink. I really like the way it pinks up my lips and seems to me to have a little blue reflectiveness to it, in the shimmer. I see myself wearing this one for sure.
More after the jump
- Buildable (with blotting and reapplication)
- Would look amazing with a lip gloss layered over the top
- Price is fantastic: $4.75 for a lip-balm type container full
Zicke, which means "Bitch", is a very insteresting silverly lilac color. It was fun to try on, definitely something I would wear as a statement or if I needed a metallic addition to another lipstick.
Evil Shades - Primrose Path My favorite so far! I applied this on naked lips, no balm or anything underneath.
Diabolical: I had a hard time getting this one to photograph as red as I think it is, but it certainly is coppery. I like it, but the pink is still my favorite so far. Evil Shades has an orange lipstick I really want to try. Ee! I really like that it isn't a matte lipstick. I personally don't like matte lipsticks a whole lot, only because they seem more drying, but these ones are not drying, but really have a great color pay-off.
This shade is soooo hard to capture!! Must try again.
