Review & Swatches ~ My Beauty Addiction Lipsticks

I found out about My Beauty Addiction when I was browsing Etsy for exciting lipsticks (when am I not?). I really liked some of their colours but as is often the case didn't want to buy a full size and find out the pigmentation was rubbish or I didn't like the formula or something. Luckily they recently introduced sample sizes, where you can choose any three colours for £2.73 which I think is super reasonable, even with postage and packing. I will probably (definitely) be ordering a few more, especially since they've now introduced some more interesting shades.

Packaging: each sample comes in a sweet little clamshell with plenty of product, which is easily accessed with a finger tip or lip brush. The label simply gives the name of the product (but not the company, which is kind of odd) and the quantity of product (0.16oz).

Price: £2.73 ($4.00) for three samples, or £5.12 ($7.50) for one full sized, bullet lipstick. The sample price is amazing considering how much product you get, and the full size price is also very impressive!

Formula: I found the pigmentation varied a little between colours. Emerald was definitely the best and would totally recommend it as a dupe of Lime Crime's Serpentina, it's slightly brighter but the general deeper metallic green theme is the same. I applied each lipstick with a combination of finger and lip brush. As a general idea, I wore Emerald for three hours in which I experienced no fade, then I ate some pizza and after that there was fade but it wasn't that bad, so I'm pretty impressed. Paranormal and Sapphire performed slightly less well.

A bright, metallic true purple. Not too pink, not too blue.

  1. Great review! I was thinking of trying out some lipsticks by them and really wasn't sure. I'm still not sure, but that green looks really nice!
