Indie Post- Fierce Magenta

Fierce Magenta is one of those Etsy shops I kept looking at for a while before finally making an order. They mostly sell lip products, although they do have a small selection of eyeshadow as well.

Glorious lippies!

I ordered a package where you could get two mini lipsticks and one lip gloss for 15.69, because I figured I could get over my weird aversion to glosses for these. This was just after I had tried out Lux et Voluptas from Portland Black Lipstick Company, and was loving the idea of rosy gold colours on my lips. Plus, you know, they had a blue lipstick on there, and that’s sort of my thing.

The lipsticks came in little mini lip balm tubes. For sample sizes, they were pretty large- I’ll be using these for a while. The lip gloss was in a squeeze tube with a slanted tip applicator.

Midnight Sky.

Midnight Sky is a blue lipstick. I love it. It’s almost black, and just gives the slightest hint of blue. As well, when it fades, it fades fairly evenly to a lighter gray-blue.

Quicksilver on my face.

Quicksilver is a metallic silver. I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do. I had never considered silver lipstick as an option, and now there is a whole world of possibilities open to me. Thanks, Fierce Magenta.

Both of the lipsticks were fully opaque in one swipe, and while Quicksilver rubbed off a bit quicker than Midnight Sky, they still had respectable weartimes.

I wouldn’t say this is a bad Romance at all. It gives the slightest gold sparkle to my lips, but looks pretty nice and sweet and natural. Of course, that is hardly ever a look I am going for, so I did some alchemy and found out when I layer it over red lipstick, I have red and gold lipstick, which is a nice holiday look. It lasts for about two hours on average, which I think is adequate for glosses. It is kind of on the sticky side, as my wild, bushy hair helped me discover. I might not buy this again, since I have decided to stop trying to make myself like lip gloss and this is the most lip-gloss-esque product I own. That said, this is personal preference again, and I think someone who likes lip gloss would probably like these.

I might also remark that all these products were fairly true to the photos the site has up. I was expecting some variation, but on my monitor, it’s pretty much identical. This is a huge plus.

While I can’t speak to the quality of the eyeshadows, if you want a wacky colour for your lips, Fierce Magenta might be a shop to check out.

    • Thanks! I was surprised by how much I liked the silver, since I don’t normally go for light coloured lips, you know? But it’s neat and pigmented and it’s become one of my favourite weird lippies.
