Hello My Lovelies!
This review has been a long time coming! I love lipsticks! I feel that they are a fantastic way to add some color to the face.
When it comes to trying on lipsticks from brands which I am not that familiar with and/or haven’t used before, I feel a tad bit skeptical. I am not a snob in any way but a tad bit discerning.
So, when I heard that the Street Wear lipsticks were making a splash, I decided I had to get my hands on some to know what all the hoopla was about!
So, I made my way to the nearest NewU store and asked the SA if they had some in stock ad luckily they did!
I wish I can describe to you the exact moment the SA turned towards me, with a box of THE MOST RADEST, AWESOMEST looking lipsticks ever!
I fell in love with the pop art/comic strip inspired packaging! I decided that i needed them in my love even if it was just for the packaging and for Rs.180 bucks a pop, it was a steal!
So, I bought 5 shades ~ Fire Your Ex, Pink Passion, Crisp Caramel, Mystic Mauve and Very Vampire!
~ Read on to find what I think about each of these shades ~
1. Fire Your Ex
Fire Your Ex… this has to be one of the most badass named lipsticks ever! Fire Your Ex is a creamy bright tomato red lipstick and one of the most comfortable wearing red lipsticks that I have ever tried.
The lipstick is really easy to apply, usually I prefer using a lip brush when I am applying a really pigmented lipstick to get better application, but I applied this lipstick directly from the lipstick bullet and it did not tug on my at all! It glided effortlessly!
My Rating ~ 4/5
2. Pink Passion
Pink Passion is another one of my favorite lipsticks from the bunch! It is a really pretty orchid pink-y color!
This is a beautiful pink shade which needs 2-3 swipes for the true color to pay off but when it does it looks really pretty and flattering!
Many even say that it is a close dupe for MAC Flat Out Fabulous, but since I haven’t tried the Mac lipstick I cannot weigh in on that.
It is a really cream lipstick, it applies really easily on the lips and does not dry out my lips!
Only Con of this lipstick is that it starts to bleed after 2-3 hours.
My Rating ~ 3.5/5
3. Crisp Caramel
Crisp Caramel is a really pretty nude with coral undertones. Crisp Caramel has quickly become my go to nude lipstick! I don’t know how that happened but over the past few weeks I find myself constantly reaching for it.
This lipstick needs 2-3 swipes to show on my lips but after that it stays on comfortably for 4-5 hours.
My Rating ~ 4/5
4. Mystic Mauve
Mystic Mauve is a true mauve lipstick. Unfortunately, this was one of my least favorite lipstick from the bunch!
When the SA had swatched this lipstick on m hand I had been really excited and I bought it on a whim but as soon as i applied this on my lips… it looked flat. I looked flat! With a name like ‘Mystic Mauve’ I expected something “mystical” to happen!
But alas! Long story short this lipstick lacks pigmentation and makes me look washed out when I wear it!
My Rating ~ 2/5
5. Very Vampire
Very Vampire, another name that I am a fan of! Very Vampire is really similar to Fire Your Ex but between the two I feel that Fire You Ex is a little more pigmented and vibrant.
Very Vampire is a really nice affordable red lipstick and is great for people who want to try a red lipstick but not go the whole way!
Very Vampire is a great ‘safe red’ for beginners.
My Rating ~ 3/5
I think the Street Wear Color Rich Lipsticks are really pretty and affordable lipsticks with great packaging to boot!
Sure, there are some hits and misses but overall these lipsticks are bang for the buck!
I am looking forward to trying some more shade like Riveting Rouge, Pink Pirouette and Pink Persuasion when I get my hands on them!
That’s it for now!
As always send me some love!
