Swatch Sunday – Rubi Lips

This weekend I was walking around in my local shopping centre and while I was in Cotton On I came across their Rubi Shoes section and they had a makeup section which had lipsticks and nail polishes, all 3 for $12. So I thought I would pick up a few of the lipsticks and try them out for you guys and swatch the shades I got.

They had a wide range of shades going from nudes, pinks, purples, a blue and even a black. I went for these 6 shades as they are colours I would actually wear.

The packaging looks really nice with the mirror finish but feels like very cheap, light weight plastic which I can’t really complain about as these were only $4 each.

All the shades I got are all satin finishes except one being a sheer satin. Which you can see from the swatch below:

The pigmentation on these are great and they feel very moisurising. The shade I was most excited about, garnet rose, ended up being so sheer which I was a little disappointed about because I love the colour but it will be a great shade to keep with me on work days when I want a nice light pop of colour on my lips.

Also these aren’t a long wearing lipstick and they would definitely benefit from having a lip liner as a base so they don’t smudge and move off the lips.

Overall these are worth checking out. The formula isn’t my favourite as I always go for a long wearing formula but they do have a great shade range and are perfect for when you don’t want to spend a fortune on lipsticks.
