Silk Naturals released their Valentines 2011 collection last week. I skipped the eyeshadows this time because I bought way too many eyeshadows this month alone (MAC Mega Metal Eyeshadows, Urban Decay Naked Palette and Show Pony Shadow Box, Coastal Scents 88 Palettes, etc.), but I just can’t resist SN lippies. I’m addicted to them!
They released 4 new liquid lipglosses… Ambrosia, Bubble Gum, Cerise, and Icing. Icing was a special GWP a couple of months ago.
From left to right… I also got Cayenne (Thanks, Val!), Dame, and Sugar.
Here are some swatches. Click the image to enlarge.
Cayenne looks more red in person. Dame is a very lovely shade. Sugar just looks yummy!
My bare lips for reference.
Ambrosia is a sheer creamy pale peach shade. On my hand and in the tube, you can see some gold micro-shimmer, but it’s really not noticeable on the lips.
Bubble Gum is a semi-opaque light-medium pink color. Just like Ambrosia, it has a bit of shimmer that is unnoticeable on the lips.
Cerise is a semi-sheer cherry red shade. It’s not overly bright, and there is no shimmer.
Icing is a sheer sparkling pale pink with multi-colored shimmer. It smells like strawberries!
Cayenne is a muted rusted red-brown with an orange base. It’s an opaque shade with excellent color coverage.
Dame is a semi-sheer red-toned plum with gorgeous gold shimmer.
Sugar is a very sheer and frosty light pink-beige color with a lot of shimmer.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… these lippies are amazing! The Organic Vegan Lipsticks (like Cayenne) and Butter Creams (like Dame) are very creamy, non-drying, and decently long lasting (about three to four hours on me). The Kisser Slickers (like Sugar) feel lightweight and very moisturizing! The liquid glosses are non-sticky, nicely scented (especially Icing), and feel wonderful on the lips. My only complaint is somewhat nitpicky. I find myself dipping and re-dipping into the liquid gloss to get enough product on my lips. Other than that minor flaw, these are excellent products that I’d recommend to everyone!
