I wanted to do a quick review/swatches of The SoLa Look Lipsticks. The colors are rich and gorgeous with a matte finish. Usually with matte lipsticks my lips tend to start peeling and feel very dry in the middle of wear. However, with these lipsticks I did not experience any peeling or dryness. They are so comfortable to wear I totally forgot that my lipstick was even matte. The swatches below are all taking in natural daylight. Sometimes I wish I could bottle up this type of lighting and release it whenever I want. It is perfect for swatches as it gives the true color.
Gina is a soft pinky-mauve shade, perfect for everyday wear. If you are not a fan of bright lipsticks this is the perfect color for you. I love how it's still light in shade but really works well with yellow/golden skin tones. This shade is the right amount of neutral/light but with a hint of color that's still noticeable but not over the top. It can complement any makeup style from neutral eyes to deep dramatic eyes. I can't wait to try this color on a bride who wants that lovely neutral toned pink.
Carolina a brighter magenta pink with a matte finish. Beautiful color to wear in the summer paired with a shimmery neutral eye or even a hint of gold. In the swatches I applied two coats but you can totally tone down the intensity with one layer. I find with brighter matte lipsticks you can really see all the fine lines on your lips and the dry patches. But not with the SoLa Look Lipsticks, super moisturizing because of Sodium Hyaluronate - keeps lips soft, smooth and hydrated and their 24-Hour HydraTechnology – provides intense hydration for lips. I should also mention that the lipsticks are paraben-free, lanolin-free and fragrance-free and all made in the lovely USA! Major pluses if you are sensitive or allergic to certain lipsticks.
Janelle is my favorite color out of the three!! I just love it and I think I should stock up on this color. I haven't really come across this particular mix of coral, red, and pink in a lipstick before. It is drop dead gorgeous! I've been wearing it out for the past couple of days and people have been asking me about this shade. I like to pair this lip with neutral eyes so the color get all the attention. If you had to pick a color for summer I would recommend Janelle, you will love it!
