CVS is having this nice sale on Maybelline and Revlon lipsticks and being that I love CVS I couldn't keep myself from making the best of the sale ;)
I am sharing with you guys swatches of the lipsticks I bought and exposing myself to ridicule. O my God, I colors I bought ! Except one Revlon lip gloss, the rest are all going back today. I picked all the wrong colors. I guess all these will look much better on a person with a cool toned complexion, not one as warm as me !! Anyways, check out the swatches and I'll make a post tomorrow on what I buy tonight.

What I got :
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Cherries In The Glow
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Berry Rich
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Sassy Mauve
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Baby Berry
Maybelline Super Stay Lipcolor - Cinnamon #774

My only favorite was the Revlon lipgloss. Its a pretty gloss with just a hint of red to it. Will look great on its own and over a red or plum lipstick.
The rest are all horrible colors. The sassy mauve makes me look like a cadaver !! I look so pale and almost dying with it.
The Maybelline gloss does nothing to my face. It just lays there on my lips, feeling so outta place.
Berry rich was ok I guess, but where would I wear it to? Not work, most often not for grocery or an outing with friends....then where? So this has to go.
Baby berry, awww such a cute name..... BUT a horrible color ...hehehe. So super bright , I look like a ....a.....nevermind.
I just wanted to share how it looked on me, but I am sure many of these colors will look better on a different skin tone / hair color etc etc. Just weren't for me :(

I think each and every lipstick looks good on you, I think whether cool/warm toned, u can rock and color, if applied right

I recently picked up Revlon Lustrous Lipgloss in Glossy Rose (a sheer, slightly cool pink) and the Mineral Lipglaze in Raisin (a warm, opaque, deep brick pink). Give them a try :)
