When I think about makeup and all the elements that are involved, lipsticks have to be among my favorite everyday essentials. Lipsticks come in a huge variety of colors, formulas, design, packaging, and brands. So in other words, we have plenty of choices to choose from when looking for that perfect lipstick that will make us feel not only beautiful but also confident as women.
Trying out new lipsticks and other lip products make me very happy. As a result, coming across a new luxury cosmetic brand that specializes in developing beautiful lip products was such an amazing opportunity.

Products Received from the Brand
Head Over Heels Lipstick
This lipstick is a rich deep mauve which I absolutely love because it actually suits most skin tones. Patricia designed this gorgeous shade being inspired by a 90’s Fall/Winter Fashion Show season, where models walked down the runway wearing this beautiful rich mauve color. The formula of this lipstick is a beautiful silky matte that applies smoothly and feels lightweight on the lips. The pigmentation is amazing by only needing one swipe to get an even color payoff.
On the lips, this lipstick feels comfortable and luxurious. The formula feels hydrating and not drying due to containing Aloe Vera and essential oils that soothes and hydrates the lips. The formula is honestly one of the best formulas I have ever tried because of the lightweight and silky feeling that not many lipstick formulas provide. I am seriously not a fan of matte lipsticks that feel over drying and make my lips crack and hurt and for which I have to apply a heavy lip balm to prevent feeling uncomfortable. With this lipstick, I did not need to apply anything prior and the lipstick still felt amazing on my lips. In addition, I was very impressed on how long wearing this lipstick is. It lasted through light meals and still looked pretty. I must mention that once the lipstick begins fading it does leave a pink stain on the lips, which does not bother me because it can be easily removed with a napkin or makeup remover.
I love having the option of wearing this lipstick alone or under one of Runway Rogue’s lip glosses to glam it up and customize the look. I received many compliments on how this lipsticks suits perfectly my skin tone giving my complexion a bright and luminous look.
The packaging is very chic and elegant in a silver-gunmetal lipstick bullet that comes with a magnetic closure. It has a weight to it making it feel and look sophisticated.
Chameleon Lip Gloss
Chameleon is a beautiful shimmery golden rose that suits any skin tone. Patricia felt inspire to create this multifaceted super shiny shade based on her own experience during her modeling career. She was given the nickname Chameleon because of her often sexy, sultry, understated, and minimalist looks. As a result, this gorgeous lip gloss was born.
I am not a fan of lip glosses that feel sticky on the lips. Chameleon is a lip gloss with a super comfortable high shine formula that is not sticky and looks very natural. I also love the option of wearing it alone for a natural glossy look or over the Head Over Heels lipstick for a more dramatic and glamorous look. The formula feels hydrating due to containing Aloe Vera and essential oils that deliver comfort to the lips without that annoying sticky feeling.
The packaging is very chic and elegant in a silver-gunmetal lip gloss tube. The applicator is easy to use and not messy at all.
