This is my first lipstick review/first impressions/swatches video/post! I'd had these lipsticks since winter break and I finally had the opportunity to film my first impressions of the lipsticks. One of them is from Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in "Jeweled Pink" and the other two are from City Color Cosmetics. One is a bright red called "Lady in Red," and the other one is supposed to be a more berry shade called "Paris by Night."
If you would rather watch me talk about this, then watch my video on Youtube, shown below:
Otherwise, you can read on to see some of my thoughts on these lipsticks!
This one looked pretty nude on my lips. It was like a nude with a light shimmer on top. I probably would never wear this unless I wanted to wear lipstick just because. It didn't really add a color to my lips, which was really disappointing for me. However, the swatch on my hand looked nice (see below after lipsticks).
I had always wanted to have a bright red lipstick, and this was it. I had other bright red lipsticks before, but they were not as red as this one. It was so red, it was almost as if it had a yellow base that made my skin look very weird up against this color. However, I do love how smooth this lipstick glides on me. It dries out my lips a little and comes off easily, which can be good for removing it at the end of the night, not good if you want to last all day. You would definitely have to reapply multiple times.

Which one would you choose?
