lip swatches i've been meaning to post!

Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend! I've had these images stockpiled for a while and thought I might as well just post them all together in a single post - I was afraid I'd forget about them otherwise. >_<

Okay, on with the swatches! 

Rouge d'Armani 508

Boots No7 lipstick in Grace

Lancome L'Absolu Nu in Pale Petal

Revlon Fashion's Night Pout

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere

MAC Sheen Supreme in Supremely Confident

MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2

You can tell my lips were getting dry towards the end! haha I exfoliated first with a coconut lip scrub, otherwise it might've been a disaster! Looking at these swatches, I kind of want to give NARS Madere another chance - I was initially really disappointed in it. I thought it was dry and chalky, but in the photo it doesn't look so bad.  

Also, I have to say I really don't like Supremely Confident AT ALL, and believe me, I wanted to! I was so in love when I first swatched it, but on the lips, it's just awful - uneven and corpse-like! It also gets goopy in the center of the lips, which is a huge pet peeve.  I'd love to try another shade (Gotta Dash?), because I've heard great things about the line, but this one's a dud for me. I haven't worn Gaga 2 much, just because I tend to reach for peachy pink nudes, and this one is more of a straight-up fleshtone nude. The rest are all loves!

Thanks for reading!

  3. Love the 3 first lipsticks on you!!

  4. The Armani one is just beautiful!

  5. They are all kinda similiar but I love them non the less xx :o)

  6. I've been wanting to try some Boots lip products.. this swatch makes me want to go buy some today! :)

  7. This post made me smile. I think it's pretty clear what kinds of lip colors you tend to go for, lol :) Supremely Confident kind of terrifies me, quite frankly. It's SO nude/white! If you can't pull it off, I don't know who can. I love the Armani one on you so much, though!

  8. You know me, I always like the darker pinks.

  9. Thanks for sharing this lippies! Boot No. 7 in Grace is my fav of this bunch! She looks utterly wearable!

  10. Such lovely swatches! I am a huge fan of pinky nude lips..I'm so in love with your post!
