You Probably Don't Need All of These #3

Clearly these are different formulas, consistencies, and applicators. But the colors are almost dead on. Sushi Kiss is a HAIR more neon-ish. Although Luna is more glossy than Sushi Kiss, they both have the same wear time.

If I had to choose one, it'd probably be Sushi Kiss. Just because if I want to make it matte or more glossy, I can do so. With a lip lacquer, your only option is to wear it as is. Plus, the application can be a little tricky with a lip lacquer, and can tend to get on the teeth a little more easily.

My bare lips





























This one definitely came as a surprise. They don't look anything alike in the tube, or swatched on the skin. But they are IDENTICAL on the lips. They are both fairly glossy, and have the same wear time.

If I had to choose one, I'd choose #day glow, just based on the fact that it is cheaper and more accessible to me. Because they literally look exactly the same on my lips.

You Probably Don't Need All of These #1

Here's a little introduction to this new series!

So, as you can see, Orange Soda is a little bit brighter than Tan-gerine. Orange Soda is also a little more opaque and thick in consistency. They both are fairly glossy, and have the same wear time.

If I had to choose one, I would choose Tan-gerine. Even though it is more expensive, and you get less product. It doesn't make my tooth look as yellow as Orange Soda does, and is more wearable for my skin tone, and meshes better with more eye makeup looks.

As you can see, Complex isn't 100% matte, but it isn't as glossy as Nude Delight. Complex is also a tad less pink than Nude Delight. Because of its "matte" finish, Complex wears longer on me, and doesn't get on my teeth.

If I had to choose one, it'd definitely be Complex. I just really think this is a unique shade, and the formula and longevity are great.
