Evil Shades Swatches (Part 1) : Lippies

This post has been a long time in the making. I've been under quite a bit of stress in my personal life. Having some difficulty with my health, but hoping to be on the path to getting back to "normal" soon. I thought you guys would enjoy this. Awhile back I ordered a bunch of samples from the MAGNIFICENT and MARVELOUS Evil Shades. I am just blown away by the formulas of her products , and the fine attention to detail. This branding screams out to me and I can identify with the cutesy goth girl on the packaging. As far as lip products go, I can safely say that most typically I'm a "gloss girl". The same rings true here. Don't get me wrong, her lipsticks are wonderful, smooth and buttery, and highly pigmented.. it's honestly just a personal preference. My favorite out of the entire bunch was Hardcore Lips in Lost Kiss, followed by Deviant lipstick in Bane. A close third.. to my surprise was Devious Virtue. I've NEVER worn such a neutral shade on my lips.. but really found myself enjoying this one.  My swatches are okay at best, some shades I got better photos of than others. My hope is to just give you an idea of what they look like. Enjoy!

Lip Swatches:
Bane : Sometimes I like to do "cut-out" lips to show what it looks like without my skin tone affecting the color. (However, there is no stopping my lips natural color from having an effect on the overall shade)
Devious Virtue
Felines Kyss
Fearless (IRL a little "pinker" than shown, the arm swatch more closely represents this shade. This one was TOUGH to photograph for me, and wore more "red" than pink on my lips for some reason.)

Overall I think these lippies are tops. I can't wait to place another order to try some more out! (Gotta get a full size of Lost Kiss too!! ) :D Do you have any ES lippies? Do you have any suggestions for my next order? Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I think I has to have Fearless

  2. Feline's Kiss is one of my favorites! Not Your Barbie Hardcore Lip is also really pretty. I love the last picture. You look gorgeous!

  3. ooo I like the look of Devious Virtue, I haven't experimented too much with brownish nudes but I would love to find a shade like that I can wear. Corset looks luscious as well! Thanks for the swatches :)

  4. I love Evil Shades lip stuff, Corset is my favourite! I also want a full size of Stormy!
