Purchased by me.
I didn’t know that Ruby Kisses made more than just nail polish, but last month at The Makeup Show NYC, I stopped by a booth with Kiss and Ruby Kisses makeup for sale at really low, great prices. Like, drugstore prices. I was intrigued!
I picked up a couple pieces from the different lippie lines, including this one, Lip Lacquer.
Although it’s billed as a combined lip gloss and lipstick product, Lip Lacquer is the consistency of a liquid lipstick – the one I picked up is extremely pigmented and opaque. Without looking at names, the shade I chose was “Orgasm.”
Here’s a look at the applicator, which is a thin paddle. It picks up a great amount of product:
You can see that Orgasm is a bright cherry red with red shimmer.
Here’s how it looks on my lips:
It’s definitely bright on my lips but the shimmer is subtle.
I fully expected this to feather on my lips. But it did not. It wore solid through breakfast, constant water and coffee drinking, and stained my lips so that after lunch, I only needed a touch-up to brighten the color again and give a bit of moisture to my lips.
Where I applied it, it stayed.
This is one reliable red lipstick.
Remember I mentioned the drugstore prices? The price tag on this $3.99. That’s it. $3.99. I want everyone of these pretties for that price!!
I asked at the booth where I might find Lip Lacquers and other Kiss/Ruby Kisses products after The Makeup Show NYC, and they told me to try Bejour.com. Orgasm is not listed here in the choices for Lip Lacquer. I also Googled to find other places where the lippie might be sold and I found many choices available on Amazon.com, although the price is higher than Bejour.com.
I would definitely buy more of these. Have you ever tried Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer?!
