The second thing I got from My Beauty Addiction was a lipstick palette. As I mentioned in my first post, My Beauty Addiction offers a lot of specials on their facebook page. When I ordered, they were offering this palette free with purchases of $15 or more. I'd already been eying their lipsticks, so I was excited to try out a few different colours out this way!
Included in the palette are Drama Queen, Heliotrope, V.I.Pink and Stargazer.
Drama Queen is a vivid fuschia pink.
Heliotrope is a very vivid pink with a strong purple undertone
V.I.Pink is a deep magenta pink.
Stargazer is a vibrant violet with a magenta/fuschia undertone.
(Descriptions from My Beauty Addiction)
All of these colours are fairly bright, great for when you want a more bold lip. Drama Queen and V.I.Pink are beautiful pinks, and Heliotrope is a great berry shade. Stargazer is the only one I have a hard time wearing - it's just a little too purple for me! The formula of these is great as well, giving vibrant colour without drying out your lips. I do find it takes a little work to build them up to full opacity, but I think that's just due to the palette form. In a regular lipstick tube, I'm confident you wouldn't have that problem at all.

These specific palettes were a special, but you can purchase lipstick duos for $8 or mini trios for $5. They are also available in regular lipstick tubes for $8 (or 3 for $20.) Another fun thing is that My Beauty Addiction will make lipstick out of any of their (lip safe) eye shadows, so if there's an unusual lipstick colour you've been looking for, you just might be able to find it here. The duos and trios can also be customized.
