This review is a bit late, but since postage has been a bit delayed due to Christmas I only got these lipsticks a few days ago, and barely got around to test them out. I wanted to get this review out before it was unreasonably late.
The December bundle featured three beautiful mauve toned nudes. For the holiday season they changed up the packaging a bit. Instead of the usual frosted bottle and rose gold details, these lipsticks came in a clear tube, with silver details and glitter lid. Very beautiful indeed, but I have to say I think their regular packaging is even more beautiful.
They did not change the scent for the holiday though. It is the usual vanilla-cupcake-batter scent. I like it!
There have been mostly hits for me in this subscription, but also a few misses. I am happy to notice that the quality of these three are very consistent. They last for around 5-6 hour, and they still look good after a non-greasy meal or that giant cup of coffee that I like. Not only was the quality a big hit, but also the shades. I think this month is the best bundle I’ve got so far.
There are three different mauvy nudes.
Venice – Nice peachy-mauve. The lightest shade of the bundle but still not too light. I have quite pigmented lips and I sometimes have a hard time pulling off pale shades even though my skin is fair. This one is just great! Light and nude, but not too light.
Madrid – This one is my favorite. True mauve, a few shades darker than Venice. It is just so flattering on my skin tone, and I can see myself wearing this a lot!
Naples – A cool-toned deep mauve. On me it is a pretty dark nude, but I think on darker skin tones this will look amazing. It works well for me too!
Overall, I could not be more happy about this months subscription because the quality of the lipsticks are really nice, and they are all shades I think I will use a lot. This time I really got a lot for my money, and I can’t wait to get next months lipsticks!
Did you ever try these lippies yourself?
