Hooked on Pink from the permanent collection & Vibrant Mandarin from the new Sensational Vivids collection.
Hooked on Pink, Vibrant Mandarin
I think the main reason I wanted a shade from the new Sensational Vivids collection is because I wanted to see if they were truly as bright and pigmented as they look from swatches on line.
Vibrant Mandarin sure packs an tangerine-red punch to the lips. I'm glad it's not an all-out orange, but also contains a reddish tinge to it. I feel that makes it a bit more wearable.
If you're not a fan of funky bright colors or have been looking for a flattering orange toned lip, this may be the one for you.
I wanted to add that this lipstick was packaged with the wrong cap! I didn't notice until I'd left the store.
Hooked on Pink
I swear, I debated getting this shade for a good 15 minutes in store aisle. It's hard to find a pink that works for my skin tone. Before you know it, you're in plum territory and no longer looking at pinks. I'm glad I decided to just go with this shade, because it's surprisingly flattering.
This pink is not too light or frosty. Best of all, it is PINK! and not too plummy.
