Hey everyone! The other day, I posted my February 2012 Collective Haul (/viz/tempalinas-february-2012-haul), and I was asked to do swatches of the lipsticks that I bought. I also decided to include some mini-reviews. So here they are!
From left to right: - NYC Retro Red #308 --> This is super pigmented! Definitely not for the faint-hearted. I don`t find it pulling orange nor pink. It stays a true red though slightly darker. - NYC English Rose #419 -->This is also very pigmented! It is a mauve shade that pulls more pink. - NYC Air Kiss #404 --> This is a slightly different texture than the other 2 NYC lipsticks. It felt wetter so it is slightly less pigmented (it almost felt the same as the Revlon lip butters). You`ll need a few swipes to get the opacity you desire. It appears to be a faint fuschia. - Wet n Wild 905D --> Very pigmented! This is a bright mauvey-fuschia shade that pulls more pink. - Wet n Wild 907C --> Also very pigmented. This is a mauve shade that pulls more purple.
Thoughts: All of these lipsticks are very pigmented, with the slight exception of NYC`s Air Kiss. I find that the Wet n Wild ones have a dryer formula so I imagine they would last longer throughout the day than the NYC ones (but I will have to wear them myself to be sure of that). These only retail between $0.99 to $2.99, so these are already quite a bargain. Their price is cheap, but the quality is definitely not. This is the first time I bought lipsticks from these brands and I`m very happy I did.
