Just for fun I did a couple of combos…

I’m leaning toward Riveting Lipstick and True Babe Lipglass, but the edgier colors like Metal Maven Lipstick and Rock Out Lipglass aren’t really my thing (of course, I have been known to change my mind). 🙂

    I Like the riverting lipstick too, it looks nice!!!!

  2. Alcy says:

    Thanks for sharing! Kind of disappointed in the Riveting lipstick. If only it were opaque/as it looks in the tube!

  3. Sindy says:

    This collection doesn’t impress me…

  4. Molly says:

    Love the pinks, HATE the sliver. Too frosted.

  5. Jasmine says:

    True babe looks good on you! It’s nice to know what stuff looks like on a fellow tan gal. I wasn’t sure if I could rock it, but now I think I can!

  6. Annieee24 says:

    True Babe lipglass looks gorgeous! I’ve been searching for a matte deep pink gloss like the one in the new Smashbox Heartbreaker collection.

    • Karen says:

      Ooooh definitely check this one out then. I liked the Smashbox Heartbreaker one, but this one has a lil’ bit more punch!

      You gotta be sure to have a good liner though, as it tends to migrate.

  7. Solé says:

    Metal Maven looks exactly as I expected it to–only appropriate for a 1960s Halloween costume. Riveting looks surprisingly more flattering than I would have expected it to, but that doesn’t really mean it would look the same on me, given our different skin tones. True Babe Lipglass is definitely on my wishlist though!

    • Karen says:

      You should give Riveting a go! I honestly didn’t think it would look decent on my when I first saw it in the tube, but you never know until you try it.

      How’s your weekend going? Are you doing any studying?

  8. true babe lipglass is such a pretty, deep pink color. It looks great on you!

  9. Stacie says:

    Hmm, Riveting looks nothing like I expected it to! It looks much better than I pictured, actually. Still, I probably will skip this collection.

  10. Nancy says:

    think i’m passing on this collection, though i did grab several things when i got my face done a few days ago with pieces from the most recent collection: ripe peach ombre blush, and fresh salmon and kamkuat. the mua suggested hodgepodge lip pencil to bring down the “brightness” of the lips for me. very pretty!

    • Karen says:

      Ooh! I will have to try that lip combo. How are you liking your new blush?

      • Nancy says:

        i LOVE it! i wanted something to add to my collection that was a bit more understated, and this did it. my girlfriends and i went out friday for a “girls” valentine’s day: dinner at pf chang’s and “a valentine’s day” movie. i had a couple compliments even on how they liked my cheeks.

  11. jen in Va says:

    I think I would only buy true babe; everything else has too much glitter in it for my taste.

  12. Tavia says:

    True Babe is the best from all 🙂

  13. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    Yeah, as everyone else said, True Babe is the best on you!

    Metal Maven reminds me a bit of this very opaque, icy silver-blue lipgloss that I had the summer after 7th grade (1999 — back during the Hard Candy craze) that I loved intensely. In retrospect, that was a poor choice on my part.

  14. Meredith says:

    Hi Karen:

    I love your blog and especially your swatches posts. Just wondering which camera do you use to take such perfect pics?

    Thanks !!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Meredith!

      Sorry it took me a while to see this comment, but I wanted to answer. I use a few different cameras. I use a Canon Ti DSLR with a 50mm f1.8 lens for a lot of my Daily Beauty/Photos and pics of tabs. For most of my macro shots I use either a Canon 960IS or a Canon G11 point and shoot.

  15. julie says:

    Rock Out seems to be the only one I like! Is this one very sheer?

  16. Rebecca says:

    None of them are really catching my eye to be honest :/ But True Babe is probably my favorite 😀

  17. Christy says:

    Unfortunately, I am not liking any of these lip glosses or lipsticks. Oh well, more money for Spring Color Forecast & mineral blushes.

  18. I really like Riveting and True Babe!

  19. leslie says:

    i like the true babe lipglass. It almost looks like the new NARS easy lover.

  20. Britney says:

    I love the rock out. A little glitter and shine make for a very sexy pout brightening my mood for the day…. but i do love a little gloss.

  21. Kizzy-online says:

    The Riveting lipstick disappointed me 🙁 It’s really sheer. Or am I wrong?
