Rose Impressionist

Hey all, got a chance to try my new Complete Color Lipstick by Studio Gear.  What do you think?


It's a vibrant shade of rose that's more red than pink, although you can see the barest trace of pink in it.  Since the color packed such a punch, I decided to balance out by doing a monochromatic smoke, as not to upstage it.  It's almost fragrance free, I can smell just the faintest hint of coconut, maybe.  The formula is smooth, lightweight, moisturizing, and nearly opaque, though it's the slightest bit sheer.  I like the way it feels, not at all cake-y or dry.  It's a nice color, but, to be honest, it's not one that I wear very often.  I tend to go all-out red or fuchsia if I want a big bang.  I think I'll probably end up giving it to my mom, who has very fair skin.  These shades tend to look more flattering on her. :)



For those of you that subscribe to MyGlam, did any of you receive the same color?  Or did you get something else?  I wish I would have gotten something a little more on the neutral side, or bright barbie pink, lol.

  2. I received Cinnibar, which is a dark red brown, I am VERY fair so it's a bit shocking on me and I probably also won't wear it often. It looks great, but too dramatic for my every day pile...

  3. I got this color too! It looks gorgeous on you! I'm not sure if it will go on me since I almost never wear bright colors :-/ I just unsubscribed to Myglam, I thought it was nice to try new products but I hardly used most of the stuff they sent me, and I don't have money to waste at the moment :( What do you think of myglam?

    1. Haha, no wonder you wanted me to swatch it! I'll bet you can pull it off, though. Just get used to trying bright colors! :D

      My feelings about MyGlam are so-so. Sometimes, I get a product that I like, but sometimes I get items that I'm not so crazy about. Their first bag was probably the best one, which is the one that I missed, unfortunately. I felt like it was the "hook" to get everyone to subscribe and now they're having a difficult time finding well-known brand names to contribute to their bags. It seems like the samples are getting smaller and cheaper these days too, in my opinion. I've been reasonably happy with the last two bags, but if the next one or two don't impress me, I might consider cancelling as well. I'd rather spend my $10 on a product I really want!

    2. I agree with you, the first bag is what got me! But then I realized that they keep on sending high end products that the companies are trying to get rid of. For example the UD eyeshadow in sin, that packaging is discontinued now. And the UD 24/7 pencils, the colors that were sent to us were from a set that came out during christmas and was recently on sale on Hautelook for about $12 I think. Oh and this lipstick color that we got has been discontinued! Do you see the pattern?

  4. I do think it suits you, but I prefer super brights as well. It seems very smooth and creamy!
