Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Swatches

Sunday Swatch is back! This time it's the much coveted (OK, I haven't been too in touched with the blog world but I have seen it featured on both Rouge Deluxe and Essie Bottom so it must be big, right?)  Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm has a nice, thick (in a condensed cream way, not a heavy-oily kind) texture and leaves a nice and noticeable veil of color (on my arm...since I didn't buy one or try the tester on my mouth).

Honey Nectar is a peachy beige nude, Natural Rose is a nude and slightly mauve rose, Pixi Pink is a standard bubble gum. Coral Crush is sheer orange coral and Ripe Raspberry is a nice punchy red-pink (the only one that seemed unique enough for me. I want some yarn in this color too!). Comfort Clear doesn't yield any color so I think it's a little steep (at $8).

Red Around Town - Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick

Red Around Town was one of a limited edition shade from summer 2013 (I have some eyeshadow from their fall 2012 collection that I didn't get to review/touch...) so I need to get this out of the way before I touch the summer 2014 shade.

Red Around Town is a neutral-to-warm red jelly without any shimmer - The texture is light, non-sticky, buttery and it doesn't slip on the lip like its shimmery cousin (Pin Up Peach, I am talking to you...). The smell is rather pleasant, fruity without being too artificial or overpowering.
(So it turns a little orange-y on me) Red Around Town has a nice glossy sheen and it does last for a1-2 hours, which is an OK time before I need to snack on something or drink.
 Revlon Candy Apple, Jordana Rock & Rouge, Revlon Rich Girl's Red, Maybelline Cherry Me (yes that one turns very purple on me), Jordana Sweet Strawberry (which is most similar to Red Around Town, just with a different texture), Red Around Town and Revlon Adore Balm Stain.

Overall: Really like the shimmer-free formula for this line!
