Hot Lips, Reviews - December 21st, 2012
As soon as they were launched on December 1st, I ordered the new Shiro Cosmetics Holiday Lipglosses because HELLO!?! don’t they look gorgeous? I was really happy with the Halloween gloss, so I definitely wanted to get the holiday set too. The colors will work year-round, so don’t hesitate to check them out!
Based on A Christmas Story, the colorful trio features a red color, a gold color, and a purple color. They’re all metallic, but quite sheer compared to the color in the tube. I like the sheerness, since this makes them quite versatile. You can wear them alone for a nice wash of color, or layer them over a stain or lipstick for extra oomph. I really love the Shiro gloss formula. It’s very smooth and not at all sticky, and also moisturizing.
Red Ryder is the red color, named for the Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time. It’s bright candy red with silver sparkle and peppermint bark flavor. It can be layered for extra color.
Leg Lamp is probably my favorite, because I love gold. It’s a shimmery true gold with toffee flavor (yum!) and looks awesome by itself or over other colors. LOVE IT!
Triple Dog Dare, named for the iconic flagpole-licking scene, is a dusty shimmery plum with beigey undertones and a sugarplum flavor. It’s a bit tricky to pull off, but I really like it – especially over a berry lip stain for a nice vampy look.
Here’s how it looks over a berry lip stain, specifically NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain in Berry Long Time. (This stain is an EXCELLENT value, btw, I highly recommend it.)
All three of these colors are really fun, and I highly recommend you get them. Buy them as a setand save some money! Which color do you like best?
