Lippie Round-Up | October with Swatches

Happy Friday my loves!!!!

Hope all is well for everyone! Today I'll be busy at the doctors office for another sonogram to check up on the little one and reconfirm the gender once more. Quite excited about that so I can seriously start shopping and have my baby shower already -- lol. Since today is such a laid back day, I wanted to share a swatch post and video on the lipsticks and glosses I have purchased throughout October. I figured the beginning of every month I can do a round-up with swatches of all the new lipsticks and lip glosses I've purchased for that month as a fun way to show the colors and just keep my blog afloat!

There are a ton of lip swatches so you can watch the video if you don't want to view all 15+ pictures and read mini "reviews"

These are all drugstore lipsticks as I am a drugstore lipstick lover. I have an obsession with lipsticks -- mainly drugstore ones from Revlon and Maybelline -- because they are not only affordable, but pigmented and apply so smoothly. I've also been loving lip gloss lately as well! Doing post like this once a month will help you to see the true color on my skin complexion and compare it to yours. These will be taken in natural light so you can see how true to color each lipstick is.

Lipstick Swatches -
Maybelline Color Sensational in Blissful Berry #410
Blissful Berry is a gorgeous deep berry with purple undertones. Creamy formulation and applies smoothly on the lips. It is very hydrating and last a long time on the lips. It can come off a bit pinkish depending on the lighting and your complexion, but it's a stunning fall color.
L'Oreal Colour Caresse in Pink Vinyl #183
Pink Vinyl looks like an opaque bright hot pink in the tube, but on the lips it gives such a sheer wash of color. It is a cool-toned blue based pink. You may have to apply more than 3 coats for it to be as opqaue as the color in tube, but it's a great pink to pop on top of a nude lipstick that is too light for you to wear.
L'Oreal Colour Riche in Wisteria Rose #251
Wisteria Rose is a mid-tone rosy pink with slight tinge of coral undertones. Love how this isn't a blue based pink and looks natural on the lips. It is definitely the kind of pink someone can wear when they don't want an overpowering pink lipstick look.
L'Oreal Colour Riche in Everbloom #254
Everbloom is a rich warm pink with strong coral undertones and a hint of tawny mixed in. It is perfect for those days you don't want to go to bright or bold, but stay in a neutral pink shade. Great for every day wear.
L'Oreal Colour Riche in Fresh As A Rose #262
Fresh As A Rose is a vibrant warm pink. It looks like it has a mix of coral and blue undertones. I'm not sure how to describe such an amazing color, but it's a fabulous shade to wear when you want a pink that's close to over the top, but not as over the top as fuchsia or neon pink lips.
L'Oreal Colour Riche in Raspberry Rush #260
Raspberry Rush is a vibrant red based pink with a strawberry feel that screams "look at me!" It's has such a gorgeous creme finish. If you are looking for a pink to rock in the fall, this would be the one! 
Revlon Super Lustrous in Violet Frenzy #027
Violet Frenzy is a sheer plum with purple undertones that has glitters in shades of silver, purple and pink that give its pearl finish. This is a wearable purple for anyone that is new to purples or want to have a wearable vampy lip.
Revlon Super Lustrous in Cherries In The Snow #440
Created in the 1950's, Cherries In The Snow is a fabulous cherry red with strong pink undertones. I love how this leans more pinkish red on me. It's just looks absolutely amazing and is different from a red with orange or blue undertones.
Revlon Super Lustrous in Certainly Red #740
Certainly Red is a true blue based red. Somewhat of classic feel with a creamy and semi-glossy finish. I believe this is also a classic Revlon lipstick created in the 1950's as well.
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Elusive #205
Elusive is a soft, muted rosy pink with a tinge of mauve to it. This would be perfect for every day wear with a smoky eye, neutral eye or any bold, bright look.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Sultry #225
Sultry is a deep rosy mauve. I am highly impressed as this was the first shade I wore for a day and the lasting power was simply outstanding. It lasted through eating a heavy meal and drinking several cups of juice and water through a straw. It was not the least bit drying either. Perfecto!

this looks much more neon and lighter in real life. Camera doesn't do it justice.
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic #210
Unapologetic is a bright coral with pink undertones. Great for those days you don't want to go all out orange or pink. It's the perfect blend and balance of coral.
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Showy #220
Showy is a matte vibrant blue based barbie hot pink. I'm a bright pink lip kind of woman, so I love this color and plan to possibly buy a back up of it.
Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Color in Pocketful of Roses
Pocketful of Roses is a rose with strong mauve undertones and has a bit of shimmer, but the shimmer doesn't really translate on the lips. This is great simple every day lip color for someone looking for a low maintenance lipstick or stain.
Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Color in Click On My HyperPink
Click On My HyperPink is a vibrant, neon barbie pink. It reminds me of Pink Friday lipstick by Mac. Even though this can be a bit drying, with the right lip preparation this is going to look stunning on anyone!
Wet n Wild Mega Last Liquid Lip Color in Back To The Fuchsia
Back To The Fuchsia is just a basic blue based fuchsia pink with the smallest amount of red undertones. There is nothing too special about it, but the lasting power is amazing.

Lip Gloss Swatches -
Maybelline High Gloss in Captivating Coral #40
Even though the name is Captivating Coral, this is more so an orange gloss with a hint of coral to it. It looks absolutely stunning on its own and even better over a lipstick. Perfect lip cocktail would be: Captivating Coral over a nude, coral, orange or pink lipstick -- your lips would look fantabulous!
L'Oreal Infalliable 8 Hr Le Gloss in Undeniable Mauve #515
Undeniable Mauve is just that -- a gorgeous mauve with pink hues. Stunning when worn alone or over top a lipstick. I am not to sure of the lasting power, so I can't say if it does stay on for 8 hrs, but the color is just too fabulous for me not to have purchased.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Nude Illusion #164
Nude Illusion is a great name for this gloss as it definitely was a slight disappointment. In the tube it looks like a gorgeous bronzy nude with gold glitter, but when applied to the lips you get a clear gloss with some bronze sheen to it. Was not quite happy with this purchase, but it will come in handy someday to wear with a nude lipstick or lip liner.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Nude Touch #152
Nude Touch is definitely a nude with pink undertones. It's not extremely opaque, but the wash of color it provides is amazing. Great gloss to top a lipstick with.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Golden Splash #159
Golden Splash is a peachy pink with gold shimmer in it. It gives an amazing sun-kissed glow to the lips that looks great. It's not opaque, but the finish it gives the lips is why I won't return the shade. This does remind me of an apricot
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Raspberry Splash #153
Raspberry Splash is a sheer raspberry pink. It definitely has some shimmer to it which makes look like a glossy pearl finish.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Violet Attitude #160
Violet Attitude is a pinkish purple. It leans more pink than violet in my opinion. Not sure why they decided to call this shade Violet Attitude, but the shade is pretty nonetheless.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Really Rose #156
Really Rose is an opaque rosy nude. No shimmer so I adore the creme finish. This can be worn alone for a subtle every day lip or over top your favorite every day lip color.
L'Oreal Le Gloss in Blushing Berry #162
Blushing Berry is an opaque deep berry with no shimmer. Great fall lip gloss that can be worn alone for a subtle look or applied over a berry toned lipstick.

Hope you enjoyed this lipstick and gloss swatch post -- all swatches were taken on the same day, so my lips are a bit raw, but I'm sure a lip balm will do the trick!

I will have separate reviews coming for each lipstick as part of a LOTD (lipstick of the day) that I want to start doing.

I am still on a hunt for these lipsticks:
  • Revlon Matte Balm in Shameless
  • Revlon Matte Balm in Standout

  • Maybelline Elixir in Vision in Violet
  • Maybelline Elixir in Signature Scarlet
  • Maybelline Elixir in Caramel  Infused
