Skinn Cosmetics : Review and Swatches of Three Twin Sets.

Coral Poppy, Pink Tulip and Summer Rose.

A few days ago I reviewed Coral Poppy, a spirited reddish orange, a perfect compliment to the colour of the year. I have since had the opportunity to review 2 more shades of Skinn Cosmetic's Twin Set: Pink Tulip and Summer Rose. Just like the Coral Poppy, I found these full size lipsticks to be just as creamy and rich with quite an opaque velvet finish. The other end of the perfectly palm-sized container reveals a beautiful gloss that I swatched alone and over the included lipstick giving me a shiny pout. It is packed with Vitamin E, Soy and Aloe to soothe even the driest of lips.

While the Coral Poppy provided me a shimmering gloss, these 2 offer a creamy tinted formula providing shine without shimmer. First up is Pink Tulip the other offering to BeautyARMY members. In petal pink, it has been kissed by a blue-based red rose which gives this hue a lean towards the violet family. I found while swatching these 3 shades that they provide the same results, which is nice knowing what you are going to get when you want to add more shades to your collection. I also find the lipstick to be true to tube and the gloss to be more sheer than opaque but as you can see in the first set of lips of each photo that the colour is more prominent in the bow of my lips and both become vibrant during bright light, such as the flash of my camera. but much more natural when the flash is off, as in the 4th set of lips.

Gloss only, lipstick only, lipstick + gloss, lipstick + gloss without camera flash.
The first thing I thought of was how much this reminded me of YSL's Rouge Volupte #4 Honey. Not as tawny, Summer Rose is definitely in the pink family but features the same coverage and opacity. Summer Rose is my personal favourite out of the three shades that I have been able to try. I feel this shade would work well on all skin tones as it is truly universally flattering; not too pink and not too yellow.

Gloss only, lipstick only, lipstick + gloss, lipstick + gloss without camera flash.

I found these lipsticks looked best when applied to the bow of my lips and allowed to naturally smooth their way into the corners of my mouth. The colour is true but it is important to note it is unforgiving to any dry lip skin. I noticed right away it highlighted my rough dry lips. Exfoliation prior to application is key. Wet Lips Gloss is thick and a bit sticky. I had to dip the wand 4 times to give me the solo coverage I was seeking. I wish the applicator was able to grab more product on it's way out. For me, it worked best when I stirred the applicator in the gloss. I should note, when I applied Wet Lips Gloss on top of the Collagen Boost Lipstick, I dipped the gloss wand twice; once for my top lip and once for the bottom as I applied it to my bow, only. 

With the convenience of 2 in 1 packaging, the fashion forward shades and going the extra step with the mirror, I rate this full size treasure a solid 4 out of 5 stars. Retailing for $18.50 each, the gloss is long lasting, it is thick and a bit sticky but it does not feather, discolour or gum up. The lipstick offers full opacity with little application but it's creamy, velvety finish is best when applied to freshly exfoliated lips. I look forward to trying more shades and I would recommend this product to anyone who loves a layered look.
