Lipstick Collection, Swatches and Reviews. :)

It's such a beautiful day outside that i'm like literally sitting on my driveway blogging this right now.
I've wanted to do this post for a while now because I think they're really helpful, but yeah.
So...
Here's my lipstick collection and swatches! :)
This is going by color and tint not brand by the way.
Here's my bare lips with just chapstick on.

Ok, first lipstick is Revlon's Nude Attitude.
It's a nude color with peach undertones.
This is a matte lipstick which i'm not a big fan of, it really like accentuates the wrinkles in my lips, but it has nice coverage...and it's not too drying.

Second lipstick is Mac's Creme D' Nude.
It's a nude color with more pink undertones.
This formula is AMAZING. It's of course the infamous creamsheen formula so it glides on wonderfully. It is a bit too pale for me but it's still a nice lipstick. Good coverage, but it wears off easily and it's one major flaw is that it melts and breaks easily, so I have to be really careful with it.

This next one is Mac's Marquise D'.
It's neutral nude pink color with subtle shimmer.
...LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This lipstick came out with the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead Collection a while ago. It's a lustre and it's B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. I actually broke mine a few months ago, but I'm going to depot it and buy a backup from ACW too so that I never run out of it...It's just amazing and smooth. A bit sheer but creamy and a nice wearable everyday color.

Up next is Rimmel London's Airy Fairy.
It's a nice baby pink color with mauve or purple undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This was my first lipstick ever and all that's left is a little nub. I love the formula though, it's creamy, moisturizing, and extremely pigmented. The color is beautiful and a great everyday lipstick, I always have this on hand, because if I can't choose a lipstick I can slick this on and have a nice natural look. It has great coverage too.

Then there's Maybelline's Born With It.
It's a baby pink color with subtle shimmer.
This is not a favorite of mine. It's from the ColorSensational line and everyone raved about it, but I just don't like it. It accentuates wrinkles, wears of easily and the cake scent drives me crazy because it's soooo sweet smelling. It's pigmented though and gives nice shine and a beautiful color, I just really don't like it.
Ignore the pluto pimple beside my lip I meant to retouch that out. -_-

This next one is Mac's Warm Me Up.
It's a neutral darker pink color with peach undertones.
It's a amplified creme formula. I thought I wouldn't be able to wear this because of the formula, but I wear this almost everyday! It's become one of my favorite lipsticks! I love it! It's creamy, long-wearing, doesn't transfer when eating or anything and has amazing coverage. It came out with the warm and cozy collection that came out a little while ago, but if you can still get your hands on it...then I definitely recommend you do.

Up next is NYC'S Mousse.
It's a neutral light bronze color with pink undertones with subtle shimmer.
I don't wear this often but it's a beautiful wearable color. It's very creamy but has sheer coverage. It's not too drying and it's very cheap! It's only major downside is the packaging. If NYC ever fixes their packaging I'll be in love!
Sorry that picture came out blurry ^^.

Okay, now we have Rimmel London's Birthday Suit.
It's a neutral dark bronze color with peach undertones and noticeable shimmer.
This is like a darker more bronze version of NYC'S Mousse. It's somewhat sheer but still has the wonderful formula of Airy Fairy. I like to wear this over my nude lipsticks to give a little color so that I don't look dead. It's a pretty color and definitely a love of mine.

Then we have Revlon's Blushed.
It's a dark pink burgundy color with noticeable shimmer.
It's a great fall color but I don't wear it that often because It's so dark. But it is a beautiful color and I love to wear during fall and winter. It's creamy and has great coverage and it's very pigmented. But it can be a bit drying.
Once again sorry for the blurry picture ^^.

Next is Revlon's Blasé Apricot.
It's a bright coral color with peach undertones.
It's a creme formula with a slight matte finish. This is my favorite bright color for spring! It's pigmented, has great coverage, and it's not drying at all! So, if you're looking for nice coral color to wear I definitely recommend this one!
The intensity of the color doesn't show well in the photo.

Then there's Almay's Red.
Its a cherry red color with subtle shimmer.
It's a bit sheer and it has gold sparkle shimmers in it. It's really pretty and not very drying. It wears off alot though and feathers alot. Pretty color though, but I don't wear reds too much.

Last but not least is Rimmel London's Alarm.
It's a bright hollywood red.
It's a creme color with absolutely no shimmer and a slight matte finish. It's really bright, pigmented, and pretty. And it has the same formula as the Airy Fairy lipstick, so it smells good, is moisturizing, has great staying power, and is smooth and creamy. Over all a perfect red lipstick and so cheap too! :)
Sorry for the super messy swatch...at that point I was just slapping em' on. :/
