First Impression + Swatches: Coloured Raine Fame

Coloured Raine has been on my list for awhile, but the shades I want (Fame and Mary) are often sold out. However, I was buying some OCC Lip Tar from Ricky’s and they had it in stock, and better yet, I needed to buy one more thing for free shipping. Bam.

The packaging to me is ehhhh – I know I sound so picky, but it’s either the font they use or the randomly pink top that I’m just not feeling. But I mean hey, it’s lipstick, not shoes. It’s what’s inside that counts!

It smells faintly like paint, which I also do not like, but this fades quickly once it dries down, so not a big deal.

Now the color in person? GAWJUS! I loooove bronzey, copperish type lipsticks and this fits the bill perfectly. Get on my lips. The formula is pretty thin, yet easy to apply. However, I did need another coat by my inner lip ring so it didn’t look patchy. Here are some swatches on my hand and lips:

When I swiped my swatch with my finger HARD (like I mean draaaaaagging it) a little bit of transfer happened, but besides that, this lipstick was not moving. I took a shower with it on and this is how the swatch looked after even with me washing my hands with soap. SOAP, y’all! All of my other makeup washed off in the shower, except this. I see you, Coloured Raine! The formula is slightly drying, but I’m not freaking out about it because I have a habit of pursing my lips slightly anyway.

The true test will be tomorrow with actual wear out and about with me drinking, eating, etc. I’m going to do another Snapchat wear test (like I did in my Milani video), but you can test along with me if you’d like this time! Follow my snaps at glitterninja007 for updates throughout the day (Saturday, July 16). If you miss the live snaps, no worries, they’ll be in the review video again.

Stay tuned!
