Great everyday pink
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle is a lovely mauve color, it has become my everyday work color. Lip Butters are creamy, rich in color and last a nice amount of time
Why are they discontinuing the best shades?
Why are they discontinuing the best shades? Like Pink Please and Park Ave Peach? Those are my favorites, good luck I have backups. Nice staying power, very good pigmentation, moisturizing, inexpensive, what else can you ask of a drugstore lipstick?
Holy Grail Pink: HL857 Paris Pink
Paris Pink is a neutral medium pink that will stand out both cool and warm complexions. The formula is creamy and long lasting, the color fades after 3 hours but it leaves a balm feeling after that and some noticeable color too. It has a cookie/vanilla/sweet scent and the only reason I'm taking half a star off is because the taste is not nice, tastes like plastic when first applied, after it stes, the taste is gone.
Good for use every other day
I bought the waterproof one about 4 weeks ago. I really like that it holds the curl, there's no flakyness or smudge under my eyes, it doesn't clump my lashes and provides natural volume and lenght. However, I'm only using it every other day because I noticed one or two lashes in the cotton pad as I removed this from my eyes, I think is too strong, so I alternate between this and a conditioning mascara from Almay.
Surprisingly the most used in my collection
So, I bought this blush last year, and it got lost in my stash. I pulled it out recently, because I was looking for a bright coral blush, and I though Posie Glow will work, it looks so bright in the pan, the product is not very pigmented, but is PERFECT for a natural look, there's no way you overdo it. The bronzer works more as a highlight for me, a PERFECT highlight on my nose, forehead and cheeks. Best part is I got it on sale! I regret I didn't buy 2 or more :D
My skin tone is light medium, I think I am NC15 or 20, not too sure.
great on its own or over any pink lipstick
I ran out of my MAC Nymphette, which I used to like till I put my hands on the palladio lipgloss formula. Not sticky at all, very sweet vanilla smell, and good wear time, you do have to reapply. Im'm really happy I bought this, made me jump in the palladio van wagon, which I must say, the brand has great products, but also some misses.
It's ok for the money
I have the Black and the Navy Blue one, the felt tip is easy to work with, and the color Black is just really matte black, which I love, the navy blue is also pretty but it has a glossy finish that I'm not in love with. I found them too watery, if you don't shake them well, you might end with only water, no pigment. Also, you can really feel you're wearing an eyeliner, they fell heavy. Bottom line, they're ok.
More than 12 hours, no crease!
I know makeup should not be in your face for more than 8 hourse, but I'm always running from full time job at 8am to uni at 7pm, I get home at 10-11pm. Color Tattoo's been a life saver! I'm using Bold Gold in the lid, Bad to the Bronze in the crease and bottom lashes and Too Cool as highlight. They're easy to blend, althought you have to hurry because they set in less than a minute. When I only have 5 minutes for makeup, I only use Bold Gold on the lid, and then a matte or pearl finish cream eyeshadow on top to tone down the glitter, (I'm using Mac Ricepaper)
