Fashion 21 Aqualicious Lipstick in Little Mermaid




The pink lippie obsession continues! 

The Aqualicious line of lippies from Fashion 21 is water-themed.. The box is a combination ofblue and white which makes me think of a landscape of a very cold region. The tube is also a very pretty blue. (similar to the packaging  of SanSan's regular cosmetics line)  and the shade names have aquatic elements to them like mermaid, starfish,  etc. It also promises extreme moisture.





I'd say Little Mermaid is salmon pink,  but feel free to correct me.  Anyway, it's a warm-toned pink and very pretty, and has a creamy,  opaque finish.

Likes:
- creamy finish (not sheer at all!)
- non-drying
-super affordable at PHP 155

Dislikes:
-range of colors is limited (a few pinks and reds but most are nudes and browns, kinda like EB Matte lippies)
- doesn't seem to be long-lasting (but don't take my word for it, maybe it's all the eating I do. haha)

Etc.
- this shade is a bit off for my coloring, I usually have better luck with cooler pinks (not the lippie's fault, I bet it will look good on most people
- the nude shades look gorgeous, will get one soon.

  2. it gives off a pretty pink! but ya that shade would be hard to wear I think, I have an NYX shade like that and I love it on me but it's just hard to match outfits with it!
