Dose of Colors Lipstick Swatches: Karma, Play Date, Coy & Love Potion

I had these Dose of Color Lipsticks sitting aside for months now saying I won’t open them until I have the opportunity to swatch them, sadly by that time – they’ve upgraded their packaging! #slackermovements

None the less, their formulation is the same and the lipsticks are just as creamy and pigmented as ever before.

Extremely tempted to now order the whole collection of 10 PLUS their new MATTE lip collection!

If you’d like to see how these look on a desi-brown skin-tone, drop a message and I’ll swatch them out for you in my next post – won’t make you wait months for it this time either! 🙂

MAC Lipstick Swatches – Yayy!

Over the past few months I’ve been presented with some pretty amazing opportunities <3 One being able to take part in some advanced techniques training, further my airbrush skills anddddd restock my professional kit (and of course – a few goodies for myself!).

For lipsticks, I decided to stick with MAC. There’s so many I favour already, the longevity, colour range, scent and the accessibility for clients to easily pick up the colour once they’ve fallen in love!

Here’s my new collection:

And into the Japonesque Pallette they go….. weeeeeeeeee!

I’m in love with this palette. It’s so much easier to have them all laid out in front of me, rather than opening/closing each one.. often forgetting what I even have in my kit. I forgot to take a picture of the other side but if you flip up the plastic, the other side of the case holds full size lipsticks!

I’ll definitely be throwing my diors and makeup forever lipsticks into here too! I purchased the palette from www.camerareadycosmetics.com . Great great great site!! Can’t stress that enough <3

Now for the swatches:

I’m in love <3 There’s so many new colours I’m addicted to (ok-most of which are pinks) but for someone who’s known for wearing the same two shades of pink for the past 9 years of their life – that’s saying a lot!

A really neat colour is Viva Glam’s Nikki – you can mix this into almost any colour and it comes out beautifully. I’ll try to do a week on this so you can see what I mean <3

New Mission: Now that half of each lipstick is in my Japonesque palette, the other half is in my personal collection 😉 Which means whether I like it or not, whether it’s too “outside the box” for me – I’m committing at least ONE day… all day… to giving it a chance 🙂

Take care!
