Yet another follow-up post to my haul of Hello Kitty cosmetics. Today I have swatches of three lipglosses to show you! If you’re interested, you can find swatches of the four lipsticks I purchased here.
Here are my bare lips. I’m only wearing BB Cream and mascara in this photo.
Let’s start with Ditsy Queen.
In the tube it looks kind of brown, kind of mauve, with a pretty pearlescent sparkle.
On my lips, it’s very natural. It brings a bit of extra colour and dimension to my lips without being too dramatic.
Next, we have Hip Poppy.
My photos make this look more brown than it is in person. It’s a burgundy with a brown tone, but is definitely more on the red side.
I absolutely loved this gloss on me! It looked like a red toned caramel. My natural lips emphasise the brown but enough red shows through to make it very wearable.
Lastly, Very Cherry.
In the tube, Very Cherry is like Hip Poppy’s sister. It’s more ruby than Hip Poppy’s burgundy, and both have the same kind of subtle shimmer.
Very Cherry is a dark pink on my lips. I would have preferred a red, but this is still pretty. The shimmer adds a lot of depth to the gloss and I think this would be perfect for layering over lippies!
These glosses are (mostly) opaque - they certainly aren’t ‘sheer washes of colour’ at least. Depending on your natural lip pigmentation you may want to layer these over coordinating lippies or liners, but for me, they work great on their own. They do have a slight scent - I think it’s passionfruit - so if you’re sensitive to that kind of thing they might not be for you. All in all, I really like these lipglosses and I’m glad I picked them up!
