i bought mighty aphrodite. but i've never been able to get much colour off the raspberry shade because it's not as soft as the main peachy part. maybe i just need to go back and rub off a coating or something as you had described for (i think) the EDs...
there are some really good ones in there! but the onslaught of the LE's can be a bit preoccupying!
Well, with Lustre Drops, a little goes a loooooong way - if you're near a MAC or MAC counter, you can test the perm ones to get an idea of the formula. I figure that little bottle should last way more than a year, unless you slather the stuff all over your body I'd like a bottle of 'em, myself, i like that rose gold color.
As far as RiRi Boy and Heaux, i still want to see some swatches - i still have 5 more pages to read, so maybe some are lurking in there.
But from photos and hints, it sounds like they're basically Up the Amp (RRB) and Rebel (H) in retro-matte formula. Since i'm not a big matte lipstick fiend, my excitement is winding down. I guess i'll just go to MAC and get Up the Amp - it's about time i had it. I'll skip Rebel because i have so many dark plum and berry lipsticks, and it doesn't seem extremely different. And if RRB and Hx are darker than the regular colors they're based on, well, I can darken them with some black lip liner or a little OCC lip tar.
as a purple lover i'm surprised you don't already have that one!
i was thinking the same...i already have rebel and uta...but from that pic posted of the riri dancer, boy looks a little lighter/less grey than uta. i don't know how accurate the colours are....
