New Rodin Lipsticks with Swatches

Rodin lipsticks with swatches
Nothing brings me more joy than trying a new lipstick launch. And from a brand that I have never tried before makes it even better! I can’t remember where I first saw these Rodin lipsticks, but the packaging was some of the most chic I have ever seen so I ran to the Barneys website to pick up a few shades. I only saw 5 colors on the website so I am assuming they may launch more later. What really pulled me in initially was the So Mod shade because it looked like an amazing nude milky pink, but I preferred it more with a gloss on top because alone it showed my lip lines and any dry patches. However, I still think that it will be a popular color for those who love nude lips. But Tough Tomato and Red Hedy are jaw-droppingly amazing.

As you can see from the above swatches, each shade is richly pigmented and only takes 1-2 swipes to get this intense of a payoff. The buttery formula applies smoothly, doesn’t bleed or dry out my lips and lasts all day long. I touched up at around hour 5 but it lasted through a meal quite evenly which surprised me. There are a ton of new lipstick and gloss launches right now (just bought a few of these shades, will be picking up a few of these shortly and recently received 2 of these), but nothing has wowed me like this rather under-the-radar lip launch. I will patiently be awaiting new shade extensions!

Shimmer Lipsticks That Are Wearable For Daytime: Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lips with Swatches

| , ,

Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lips
Surratt Beauty is a newer beauty line that launched over the past few years, and this is my first introduction to the line. As a matte lip lover, I don’t have many shimmer lip colors in my collection, though after reading a ton of great reviews on these new Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lip colors they piqued my interest immediately. When looking at swatches and pictures online, they seemed like they had a chunky shimmer to them which I wasn’t sure I would like. Nothing is worse than grainy glitter in a lip product. Ouch. But as soon as I received them, I felt the texture and it was as smooth as a lipstick or balm.

The pigmentation is quite sheer though there were a few colors that gave a more opaque finish – Chi Chi and Elitiste being the main two. I anticipated the sheen for these lip colors to look frosted (which was cute in 7th grade perhaps), however the finish is more luminous and radiant making the lips look full and healthy.

For neutral lip lovers like myself, there are so many great options to choose from. Elitiste is my favorite shade, followed by Lili Doree, Chi Chi and then Pailettes. I have been using them alone as my lip color for the day, but they would also be gorgeous layered under a gloss or over top a bold liner. I have been thoroughly impressed by this formulation, and am now excited to try more from the Surratt Beauty line – specifically this new foundation, these shadows and this lip crayon.
