Despite these Addiction Lipstick Sheer being housed in ugly and bulky plastic tubes, I went back for the other two colors I'd been eyeing: 003 Cherry Cherry and 004 Cassis, because I like the formula that much.
All pictures taken in natural light without flash.
I mentioned in the previous Addiction Lipstick Sheer post this lipstick is cut in such a way that makes application awkward. Well, I actually remember to take a photo of it this time. See how the tube is upright? You'd have to hold the lipstick upright just like this to apply it.
- 003 Cherry Cherry: the deep red appearance in the tube is deceiving and this is actually a translucent and warm red. See the comparison swatches below. Love this color and so glad to have it!
Lipstick Queen Saint Deep Red and Saint Rouge, Deborah Lippmann Lipstick Let's Do It, and this 003 Cherry Cherry.
- 004 Cassis: translucent red wine, as oppose to 010 Amaranto's grapey purple. Now that I swatch both side by side, Amaranto appears more blackberry. Or may be it's the lighting, a sunny day when I took the swatch photo below versus the overcast day when I took photos for the previous post. Interesting.
004 Cassis versus 010 Amaranto. See how there's so much more plum in 004 Cassis and more blue in 010 Amaranto.
