FRESH Sugar Lip Treatments

It's no secret that I have a soft spot for deluxe sized items—every holiday I'm throwing deluxe set after miniature set into my basket! They're so convenient, both for trying new products or shades and to throw in your purse for use on-the-go! The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments are my absolute favorite deluxe product for this reason, not only are they hydrating, but the tint of color is perfect when you need a "wake me up."

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments — $24 USD ($28 CAD) — Permanent, 14 shades

URBAN DECAY Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks (0.11 oz.) individually retail for $18 USD ($21 CAD) and is said to be "a line of five limited-edition shades of lipstick inspired by the characters from Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass film."

Iracebeth is described as a bright red matte. [LE]
Mirana is described as a matte berry w/ tonal shimmer. [LE] 
"Inspired by the new fantasy-adventure film release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, Urban Decay’s limited-edition shades of Lipstick pay tribute to some of the main characters from the film: Alice, Mad Hatter, Mirana (the White Queen), Iracebeth (the Red Queen) and Time, a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock. 

Pair the Lipsticks with the Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette and you’ll have everything you need to recreate the looks from the film. From sheer nude with a pink shift and bright red matte to gunmetal-navy with silver shimmer, these shades range from classic to edgy. Regardless of the finish (sheer, shimmery or matte), each shade has a super-creamy feel and provides rich payout."
The packaging is a plastic tube with a very fun, kaleidoscope design print and the formula itself has no noticeable scent or taste. The packaging doesn't feel quite as luxurious as the new Vice Lipsticks; the Alice Lipsticks are noticeably lighter and feel thinner in the hand—however, the overall design does match the new Vice style!

Iracebeth is a medium, brightened red pink with cool undertones and a satin finish. This shade had excellent, opaque pigmentation that never feathered or bled despite being a bolder shade. The texture was creamy, which made it lightly hydrating and apply very evenly and smoothly without dragging or tugging at lips. Iracebeth wore well for +5.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* ColourPop London Fog was similar, touch lighter and pink. Marc Jacobs Dashing was more orange toned. OFRA Atlantic City was more orange toned. Stila Fiery was less pink. Urban Decay Spiderweb was more orange toned, glossy.
