November's 5 Lip Products

I didn't have any inspiration or anything for picking November's products. I was getting down to the last dozen (or so) and noticed that I had lots of red so I figured that I'd better have a few reds to play with before I'm left with only red!

MUFE Lab Shine in D14, Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in Fancy Red, Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Rosé, Gosh Lip Gloss in 0073 and Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Forever & Never

MUFE Lab Shine in D14

- Very Sheer, yet a gorgeous pink with slight sparkles
- Adds just a touch of colour and sparkle - just the perfect amount in my opinion
- Easy to apply
Price: $21

Verdict: I reached for this one the most. Of all the MUFE's that I've used so far, I think I would possibly re-purchase this one. Bought at IMATS, so it was a little less than $21.

Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in Fancy Red

- Blue based red with some red shimmer
- Applies smoothly and evenly
- Well pigmented - don't have to cake it on
- Easy to use and not messy like some glosses, however still has a glossy look to it
- Decently long wearing
Price: $8

Verdict: I love this red, it's not too bold and it doesn't stain my lips. I seen it in the clearance bin about a month ago, so I think I might be disappointed if it is discontinued.

L to R: D14, Fancy Red, Rosé, 0073.  Bottom: Forever & Never

Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in Rosé

- Extremely sheer - almost no colour at all
- Light lemon smell to it
- It's only mildly moisturizing
Price: $26

Verdict: There is no way I would purchase this, especially at this price. Luckily this was a mini version that I got for free. For what it does, I'd rather get a Blistex or Nivea moisturizing lip balm for a fraction of the price.

Gosh Lip Gloss in 0073

- Nice sheer red colour with a decent amount of shimmer - perfect for just a touch of colour & shimmer
- Easy doe foot applicator
- Not runny and not sticky
- No smell
- Lasted a decent amount of time
Price:Unsure. Maybe around $10

Verdict: I would probably buy again. It was perfect for a bit of red without being in-your-face.

Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Forever & Never

- The formula tends to separate after a period of time and must be shaken before use
- A little easier to work with compared to it's siblings (Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick)
- Love the shimmer in this, specially compared to the matte versions
- Still very, very drying
- The colour looks great in the bottle, but on my lips, looks almost orange - not all that pretty
Price: $23

Verdict: Would no re-purchase. Actually kinda regret buying this one.

Have you tried any lip glosses/lipsticks that you would absolutely buy again? What about those that you regret?
