You probably know Manic Panic for their brightly hued, peroxide free hair dyes. I admit that as a mom, it’s been a few years since I’ve purchased dyes from this companies. It’s certainly not because I don’t believe they make the best dyes around, but I tend to add color in other places. Like my nails and my clothes, I also love adding bold shades to my lips! It’s an addiction of mine! They recently sent me an email about the new shades to their lipstick lines and let me pick 3 to try out! I picked a good mix of finishes and colors!
These all swatched super creamy and more importantly, SUPER pigmented! As you can tell from the picture, Love Kitten is more of a matte shade and the other two are a creamy texture.
Aside from the great shades, I also fell hard for the packaging! This light weight metal tube is well made and has fun silver holographic circles all over one half of the tube. Each tube (no matter the finish) looks the same so if you’re one that has a large lipstick collection, you’d probably want to store these upside down 🙂
Each lipstick is really reasonably priced at just $15.50. It’s hard to find some of these out-there shades so I’m happy to see a high end lippie with a good price point!
So, how were they? They were perfect! They go on amazingly smooth and even the matte shade was balanced and not too dry. I got at least 6 hours of wear with one coat and they stained ever so slightly. This is perfect to avoid down right awkward fading throughout the day. The photo above shows “Naked Under Leather” which is my current favorite nude! If you follow me on Instagram, you can see more swatches there!
