    What is the name of the berry colored lipstick after Hang Up? I don’t think that is Shy Girl…?

  2. I just got Melt In Your Mouth, Partial to Pink, Petite Indulgence…they are so sheer but I love them. Also lipstick Cream up, texture is just so amazing

  3. DevilishDoll

    None of them stand out to me. So I’m quite sure I’m getting nothing from this.

    Thanks for the swatches Christine. How are these compared to the HK lipglass? I’ve just pre-ordered for HK!! Can’t wait. But dunno if I should hurt my pocketbook for this release.

    • No problem, Kristie!

      These glosses don’t have shimmer really (I think maybe one has a little, tiny bit) so that makes them different from the Hello Kitty lipglasses. These also aren’t sticky, and they’re very creamy (the texture is what stands out about them). TBH, I’d just get one and probably leave it at that. :)

    I picked up Cream Cup (I’m going back to get more!) It is the perfect shade of pale pink. I had been using Politely Pink, but I didn’t really care for it too much because of the Lustre finish. The consistency of the lip sticks are amazing. They really need to be seen in person to appreciate them!

    I can’t wait for your lip swatches, Christine! You’re the best swatcher ever :)

  7. SND

    Those are really pretty!

    I grabbed Creme cup, Lavender Whip, Melt in Your Mouth and Petite Indulgence when I went to the HK party. I liked that the colors were more on the sheer side since I wanted softer colors for spring.

  9. Was thinking of getting the cremesheen lipglass but not anymore! Swatches are brilliant as always Chrisitine, thank-you sooo much – really helped me decide! x

    I Lurve Crosswires. I got it with the Cremesheen Collection. This time I want Creme Cup and maybe Shy Girl and that’s prboably it.

    Thanks for the swatches! How would you say lickable compares to strayin, as far as color, texture and finish?

    • No problem! Strayin’ is lighter, not hot pink at all (more like a strong, medium pink), and it is also way creamier with very little shimmer-sheen, more like a glossy sheen.

    I think Lavendar Whip will look like crap on me but I’m tempted by the unusual shade so I’m going to give it a try!

  13. Wendy

    i am going to try lavender whip, hope its not too purple. :)

  14. I was really hoping for Lavender Whip to be a real purple, like in the promo shots.

    My dreams of someday finding a true, pretty, opaque purple lipstick are once again dashed :(

  15. Wendy

    btw, is creme cup similar to creme d nude? i already have creme d nude and i love it!! just wondered if they are similar?

    also, i have sparks can fly, what is the best lipglass to pair it with for kinds nude look?

    thanks!

    I did want to try the l/g’s but HK is really appealing to me so I think I’d rather wait… plus 21$ for a gloss is extreme!

  17. Liz V.

    Does anyone know if the shy girl lippie compares in anyway to Marquise d’. Thanks :)

  18. I think I’m the only one excited about Spice Is Nice!!! I love oranges and there so much brown in it I’m sure it will show up on my NW45 skin.
