Mixing Lippies! (Product Reviews and How-To)Saturday, September 07, 2013
Have you guys seen the Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick Ad with Olivia Wilde? I love her lippie! That is the perfect shade that I want to sport this Fall!

Before anything else, let me tell you something about the Ultimate Suede Lipstick Line -One of the best things about this lipstick is that the tube is clear. You can easily spot the shade from your cosmetic bag or your makeup drawer at home. And also, it has a "clicking mechanism" when you twist the tube (watch it on my video below later to know what I mean).
The thing is, lipstick shades always change as soon as they come in contact with my lips. Let's take the Revlon Ultimate Suede in Backstage. In the ad it looked like a deep red but on me, it looked bluish and magenta-ish, and glossy nonetheless! I was hoping for it to be a bit more matte or suede-ish than the effect it had on me. I wasn't expecting the shine.
Since the lipstick had a strong bluish undertone on me, I wanted it to be more on the deep red side. So I looked for a lippie that had a more red undertone, but still had a berry hue on it. That's when I discovered Fanny Serrano's Moisturific Lipstick in Swiss Kiss.

I am not digging the lipstick tube so much. I mean really -metallic aqua? But I do love the formula of the lipstick I must say!
It truly is moisturizing as promised that's why I fell in love with this lipstick. If you use the blot-reapply method to make the color last, it really stays! Just end with a blot than reapplying if you want a matte-ish finish.
I can explain better with talkies so I prepared a video for this too! Check it out:
