I got Misty Mauve in my glam bag awhile ago and I've seen a lot of people complaining about the color.... but I absolutely love it! It's the perfect "my lips but better" shade. Keep in mind that I have very pigmented lips. But unfortunately they discontinued it or something because I cant find it anywhere.
I got the shade "Foxy Pink" from Ipsy (MyGlam). It's a frosty deep/darker pink. I love the color and texture (even though I'm not usually a fan of frosty colors), but the smell/taste is awful! It reminds me of the lipsticks my grandma had. I can get over it pretty quickly, but I reallyyy don't like it! I would repurchase, though, because no one else seems to have this problem so maybe it's just this shade. If you're not sensitive to smells, though, the color really is perfect! A good fall neutral for those of us who are still a bit scared of the full-on plums! ;)
i got the color "warm embrace" from my glam bag and at first i hated the color. i tried the color on again before going to work and fell in love with it when i saw it in natural lighting. it's a very warm red, perfect for my skintone. although you can wear this color year round, i would definitely prefer it as my winter shade. the color did fade througout the day, but reapplying isn't too much work. my lips are also the dry side, so i had to apply really good lip balm before applying this lipstick since it dries very matte. the only problem is that it bleeds, so i would recommend lip liner. other than that i would love to try more lipstick shades from studio gear!
someone said they have nice mauve colors and that is sooooooooo true of this line.. they really have an awesome line of lipsticks... nothing too flashy... but if you adore reds you are in absolut eluck and as for nudes.. the have a color called divine that truly is divine as stupid as that sounds lol.. but they also have a new shade i eblieve it's called sunset blvd.. and i am sooo fair and it looks good on me which is saying ALOT... it has a peach flair to it with a little pink and mostly nude, it really is unique i tried to find a similar color at mac ( i also tried to find a similar color that looked like studio gears burlesque)... but no such luck, i get a 40 percent off at mac but oh well.. at 15 bucks it's no big loss, they really do have a unique quality to their colors, no one really has colors like they do... so random for a line thats not as well known as others.
I bought this in Sugar Pie, a berry-ish color. I've found that it wears off fairly quickly but then my lips look stained and I love the look. It's creamy and doesn't dry out my lips at all.
This l/s is a nice alternative to some dept store lipsticks. I have this in Bliss a nice semi sheer medium rose shade. Not much staying power but leaves a nice natural stain that compliments my warmish complexion (rare for me ). This brand is available at ULTA.
I own the color Cinnabar, which is the only color in this collection that I like. Cinnabar is a deep, dark bloody red with a hint of brown and a bit of gold shimmer. It's a Luxury lipstick, which means that it contains hyaluronic acid, folic acid, and various kinds of butters, oils, and extracts. The Luxury formula is one of the creamiest, smoothest, softest lipstick formulas I have ever tried. I absolutely adore it!
I just got the color Capricious today, and I loved it the moment I saw it. It's bright, but not obnoxious, and it looks soo nice with my skin (I'm fair and a bit goldenish). Stays on pretty darn well, too! I have to say, it's officially my new favorite lippy. <3
Found this at Ulta the other day...today I'm wearing the lipstick I bought: And Kisses. Gorgeous, almost a dark, brickish/reddish ~ not bright at all ~ but not too dark, either. LOL...that's helpful, right?
Smooth on the lips.
Lasts a long time without major fading. I press my lips together a lot, bad habit. *full disclaimerI put a very lightweight, clear gloss on top*
Not a horrible price at $14.
Doesn't taste funny.
Doesn't taste delicious. ;o)
Doesn't have a funky smell, either.
Would definitely buy again.
