|My face looks like a bowl of oatmeal. I'm not usually instant breakfasts, I promise. This is On Fire Red.|
The packaging is nice. The colours in these lipsticks all have different coloured lids, to match the colour of the lipstick itself. My Midnight Plum has a matching dark purple lid. It doesn't feel too cheap, and it's never opened up on me in my purse or anything (I'm looking at YOU, cherryculture lip balm).
I really like the colour. It looks like a true, blue-based red on me. It goes on easily and is opaque in two swipes of the product. It's a shiny, satin finish, but not too slippery. My Midnight Plum takes a lot to build up the colour, but it's nice to be able to do a sheer purple instead of instantly becoming an eggplant.
The only thing is that it stains like a motherfucker. Some people like this because, as it fades during wear, you don't end up with random patches of lipstick that are brighter than other spots. I don't really care that much. My hand is all red from the swatches on my skin.
|Here's Eternal. What the fuck did I do when I was putting on foundation today? I'm a piece of shit. I'm sick and blowing my nose a lot, so that's why my nose is basically falling off. I give up on life.|
|I take a selfie like this every time I visit my mom and she drives somewhere. Also, if I didn't know better, I'd probably ID this colour as Revlon Lovesick. What the fuck, Covergirl?|
I REALLY LIKE THEM BOTH. They're not exact dupes of each other, they're both good for different reasons. I'd recommend both brands.
