LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! It lasts super long, even when I eat! The colours are sensational and the price is very reasonable. They smell fruity and the packaging is bright and cute.
Awesommmme!!! I love this colour. I'm an NC15, really pale with neutral undertones, and my oh my I love coral colours..I heard about this through either the Gh0stparties blog or through the Essiebutton blog, but this colour is amazing! I always bought Mac lipsticks over the years and recently I am discovering drugstore brands and I am actually more thrilled with the Revlon lip butters and the Maybelline lipsticks than I have EVER been with a high end lipstick. Bourjois is another great drug store brand that is actually owned by Chanel, and it makes more inexpensive versions of Chanel products, so their foundations are just amazing!! Back to this lipstick...the colour is bright and GORGEOUS for the summer, it smells nice, it goes on smoothly and easily, you don't have to layer it on to see the bright colour, and it's MOISTURIZING which is something Mac lipsticks never were and never will be! I will try to the Rose colour and maybe the orange colour in this lipstick line, they're fab!!!
This is a review for shocking coral (910). I generally wear Coral Crush in the regular colour sensationals, but the store was out so I picked this one up instead.
The GOOD: Like Coral Crush, I would say this is a pink toned coral, making it a lot more wearable. The colour is, as the name implies, very bright. It goes on faily smoothly, has a nice satin finish and lasts 3-4 hours (without eating)
The BAD: if you lips are dry or cracked this will totally show that, packaging is nothing special. It's a bit OTT for everyday wear.
If you want something that really "pops" I recomend this. Wear with flushed cheeks and natural eyes.
Absolute rubbish. I have Shocking Coral and the finish is patchy, uneven, drying and highlights any dryness on the lip. It is near impossible to get right and wearabilty is zero.
If you are used to high end quality (YSL, Dior, Guerlain and even the mid range goodies like MAC or Clinique) then don't even bother. The worst lipstick I've ever bought.
I LOVE these. The colors are amazing, they wear a good five hours on me, and the texture is nice. These are every bit as good as high end lipsticks. I bought four and so far have worn and love Pink Pop and Hot Plum.
Great lipstick! I managed to pick up two of these at Chemist Warehouse for 8AUD. Less than half price (YAY), so i picked up pink pop and shocking coral. I picked them up because they are right alley. the formula is amazing, it applies quite smoothly and dosent tug or anything. pigmentation is excellent, leaves a satin finish on the lips. but, if you want to sheer it out just a little, i advise putting some vaso underneath and then applying it, as it makes it less pigmented and more shiny.
Pink pop is a light bubblegum pink with small shimmer particles. Not as obnoxious as mac saint germain, as it is not as pigmented. I swatched it against 'Rimmel Pink Blush' and it is just that little bit darker.
Shocking Coral is truly a wonderful coral shade, which leans more to the pinkier side. If i had to compare, it would be a solid dupe to mac impassioned, which my mum has.
Overall, great lipstickss for the price if you snag them on a BOGF offer.
This is a beautiful, blue based red. The color is amazing and easy to build on. You truly need to exfoliate before you apply for maximal effect. Don't forget this.
I like to push the color into my lips with my pinkie as opposed to applying from the tube. This leaves my lips feeling very natural and great.
I will definitely be buy this again!
I was ECSTATIC when I discovered that they sold these here! Foreign makeup usually takes about 5 years after everyone else around the world is enjoying it to finally bump its way into the Spanish market (if it ever does at all), especially out here far away from major urban centres, where I live. I usually only use MAC lipsticks because I have super dry, always chapped lips and MAC is the ONLY brand I can use that doesn't give me dry, chapped lips. I can't even use other high end brands. Anyways, I wanted something with vivid and vibrant COLOUR without having to shell out MAC prices. I was so HAPPY to find these lipsticks, I got 2, Pink Pop and Fuchsia Flash, since they say that Fuchsia Flash is a dupe for MAC's Candy Yum Yum which I've always wanted. I haven't tried it yet, but I tried the Pink Pop. I LOVEEEEEEEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It gives you the perfect pop of colour that really lifts up your face, especially with neutral makeup. It went on really smoothly, and I don't use lip brushes. I didn't use lip liner either, because I usually put on lipstick on the bus on the way to work. Not the best place for doing your makeup lol. Just a few swipes gave me super colour and it didn't bleed. I do use a lip balm underneath, of course, how could I avoid that with the Saharan lips that I have? However a bit bummed that I can't really use this lipstick where I work (low level position in a super conservative, traditional, family-run company). Not the lipstick's fault, of course. I had to wipe most of it off in order to look presentable at work, and make it look like a stain. But the colour and opacity were GREAT, and I am so looking forward to being able to use these lipsticks when I go out for FUN (as opposed to work).
These are going back. I needed a little bit of springtime color lift so because they are so highly rated here, I bought two, On Fire Red and Pink Pop. If the red is any indication, these aren't much different from cheap $1 lipstick. The texture is waxy, they bled, and there isn't any superamped vividness/color pigment. SO disappointing. They were buy one get second at 50% off at the already overpriced CVS so in a down moment I thought, yeah. Alas, no. Back to Revlon, Besame, MAC and Chanel for me.
I am so smitten with these lipsticks. With hundreds of high end lip products in my stash, I *may* possibley love these more. They are creamy, pigmented, and feel great on my lips. The finish is smooth without slipping and bleeding out of the lip line and these last great on my lips. I've done individual reviews for the shades I purchased, but overall, my one complaint is that these are not as true to color as I would have liked. I don't mean they're sheer, I mean they pull more pink than the color in the tube. Still, I love them. Drugstore lipsticks are really coming a long way.
