I almost did not buy these. There was no way to verify the color the way they were packaged. The only label I could see was the ones on the bottom that states the color name and number. So I took a chance, read the labels, and bought two. I purchased Cotton Candy, because I assumed it would be a pale pink and Ignition, thinking it would be a red shade.
Ladies, The packaging on this lip color is amazing. It does not feel cheap, its very sturdy, the lids snap on and stay on, and they just look beautiful. They are about the length of a regular mascara tube. These baby's look like I shelled out some serious cash. I think its the reason I decided to take a chance on them. I am so glad I did! The colors are beautiful too. Just as I thought a pale pink and a red shade. Oh! I almost forgot to tell you, once I opened it there was a sticker on the back of the lid that showed the shade color, you just cant see it the way it's packaged. :(
I felt like I won the lottery. I could not wait to try them, so I put ignition on me and Cotton Candy on my daughter so we could give them a try. They are not sticky, are moisturizing, and are very pigmented. They also last for a long time, especially with a lip primer. The shade Cotton Candy is shimmery, so if that's not your thing you may not like it. The shade Ignition is not a vibrant blood red, it is a orangy red. I am happy with that because I already have a few red lipsticks. So the next time you are in your local Dollar Tree, don't forget to stop by the makeup section and see if you can snag one of these beauties. Here are the swatches:
