My best friend Melody of Cosmetically Challenged posted a review of these on her site and I was hungry for them! After intense negotiations, she did a CP for me and I think we are the only ones that have swatches of these lipsticks up so far. She found them in the Bed Bath and Beyond in her area (Philadelphia). These are limited edition and very trendy for the fall (purple lips are IN). So check out my lip swatches. What am I looking up at? I dunno just go with it k?
I didn’t use liner to swatch these either. Just wanna let yall know.
Maybelline Violet Intrigue is my favorite of all three shades offered. Violet Intrigue reminds me of Heroine a little bit. It’s a fuchsia toned bright purple with a very high shine. I was afraid it was going to be very sheer, but I found it to be totally buildable (yay).
Midnight Plum is a deep vampy red cherry shade. It was also very pigmented with great shine. I will probably do a look with this later with a black base under the lips. But it’s great as is!
Yes, Lavender Voltage is a blue toned purple. Same as the others- buildable, great shine, pigmented. No problem!
I have no availability information for my area, but Mel got them for $5.49 at Bed Bath and Beyond (I’m mad mine does not sell makeup, or maybe I missed that).
