Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Swatches

I've blogged previously about Bobbi Brown's rich lip color , I even tweeted raving about them and I got a tweet back from Bobbi Brown herself. 
So, no question I'm a fan, I don't have all shades but I have most of them, several of which are my overall favorites.
Since I love semi-matte/matte lipsticks Bobbi Brown's rich lip color's formula is the perfect balance they give enough moisture when first applied then gradually turn matte. But the great thing about them is they don't dry out or turn your lips dry after a while. In addition, they give opaque good coverage and they last for a couple of hours.

Bare Pink:

 (Paired with MAC Impassioned)
This is one of my ultimate favorite shades of nude. I don't wear it on it's own I always apply MAC's impassioned just in the middle and I always get compliments on my it.

Bikini Pink

Cosmic Raspberry:

Mod Pink:

Mod Pink: a cool-toned, brighter medium pink with blue undertones.  One of my favorite shades. Definitely a must have.
It's sold out almost everywhere the minute it's restocked, I got mine from Thailand.

Pink Peony:

 Pink Peony: It's a medium toned watermelon pink. A must have as well. Love it. I believe it's not out in Dubai yet got mine from Thailand.

Rose Blossom:

Soft Coral

(Paired with Pink Nouveau)
A beautiful shade of soft orange. it looks amazing when paired with MAC's Pink Nouveau. When I do pair them I get loads of compliments.

Soft Nude:

Soft Nude: is a light soft brown. Some might describe it as rosy brown, I don't see the rosy side of it.
I got in a faze where I wanted lipsticks that resemble your natural lip color, and I always ended up with brown-ish shades which I utterly hate. They wash off my skin tone giving me a pale sick look.
I'm not a fan of this shade.

Sweet Nectar:

Wild Rose:

Wild Rose: a subtle raspberry Pink. Amazing.

Overall I'll rate this product: 10/10

The only downside is not all shades are available in Dubai and it takes ages for them to get restocked or released.

MAC Scarlet Ibis Swatches

I know this post is way over due, I was suppose to post this around 2 months ago! I just got busy plus I couldn't find Pink pigeon lipstick anywhere, it wasn't even released in Dubai and it's the must have item from the entire collection. When I was in Thailand it was literary sold out in every MAC branch i paid a visit! I finally found one available on amazon, yay! So her goes..

 Flamingo: A pink with a hint of coral with a luster finish that has a semi opaque coverage. One of my favorites from the entire collection, even though I don't like glossy lipsticks this for some reason works for me. It also suits most skin tones, I used it on several clients and they all loved it.

Pink Pigeon: A bright, a bit on the neon side, magenta pink with a matte finish. This lipstick reminds me of candy yum yum in terms of brightness and the bold statement it leaves. 
A quick FYI Candy Yum Yum will be released soon part of the MAC's By Request collection.

Party Parrot: a neon medium dark pink with a matte finish. Love this bold color.

Diamond Dove: A dark brown with cool undertones with a matte finish.
Howzat: A bluish gray with a sheen with a satin finish.

Optical Bronzer: This is by far my favorite blusher at the moment. It suits me perfectly. It's the perfect shade of pink and bronze combined together.
