I know this thread is completely useless without pics, but I saw the lipsticks and blushes in person at the store today! I'm NW45/47-ish for reference.
It's *nothing* like any of the coral lipsticks that have come out recently. It's lighter, softer, and more peach. It's a lot softer on than it looked in the tube. As usual, because my lips are darker, I could only dab it on before it looked all kinds of crazy. It's a lot like Jazzed on me, but more vibrant/saturated. Shows texture like a mother, but no surprise there. It had to grow on me, but in the end, I really liked it! I think a LOT of girls will like this one, especially if you are NW/NC 40 and below.
I didn't try on Heroine (Idk where my head was at!), but it looks sooo pretty in the tube! It's a less radioactive purple version of Violetta.
I didn't get a chance to look at Pink Popcorn.
This one is lovely. On my skin, it reminded me a lot of a powder version of Optimistic Orange. On lighter skin, it was definitely more red-orange. It's kind of reflective, so a sheer layer of it looked a tad ashy on me. I had to layer it on before I liked the color.
Love! lol It's a very bright blue-pink, but it's so fun & vibrant. Can't wait to pick it up. I wonder how it compares to Azalea.
It's a more peachy-pinky shade. It's quite pretty and girly. I liked it, but at first glance it wasn't a must-have. I'm sure I'll change my mind when I see it again, though lol
Full of Joy:
... lawd.... frosty, reflective, greyish.... everything I don't want in a blush. BUT a friend tried it on (NC20), and it looked beautiful and so unique on her. It's like Budding Love in a blush form... it's soft & kind of pinky-purpley.
Okay, I didn't try this one on... but it looked boring, and I could already tell it'd be ashy, so I didn't waste precious swatching time.
It's a beautiful, soft shade, but it wasn't pigmented enough to look good on me. I think NC/NW 42 and lower will like this one. If you liked Fresh Honey, you'll probably like Immortal Flower. :)
