I was only going to get one, I really was. But I am a marketers' dream and always get suckered in by a 3 for 2, so I ended up with 3. I at least tried to get 3 very different shades of the 11 on offer, and ended up with (from top to bottom) Pin Up, Minx and Rosette.
Since I only bought these at lunch-time, I haven't had enough thoughts on them for an in-depth review. But my initial thoughts are:
- Bargain price (£4.99)
- Great range of colours (11 in total)
- Smell nice
- AMAZING staying power
I've deliberately not done really close up swatches, as I think a full-face makes it a bit easier to see how the lip colour would look on your own face. And my skin can't take the extreme close-up today!
This isn't the brightest pink in the range, but for me it's still pretty damn bright. It's a blue-toned magenta pink, one I'm a little bit scared to wear so it'll have to be kept for confident days.
This is by far the most wearable of all the shades on offer. I can see me using this a lot. It's a fairly neutral light pinky-nude, which I would definitely wear to work. It doesn't seem to have quite the same lasting power as the other two, but still took a lot more effort to remove than a normal lipstick.
This is a real classic red, without strong blue or orange overtones. To be honest, I preferred the look of this once I'd dabbed it down a bit so it was completely matte.
Of course, the real beauty of the Pout Paints is that you can mix them together - so most of the fun will be in mixing to create some perfect franken-shades for myself.
Have you bought any of these paints?
