SCENT & TASTE
The Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquers have a light sweet fruity scent that is not overwhelming. The scent wears off and the taste is that of a typical lip gloss - I wouldn't lick it but it's not repulsive.
COLORS/SHADES
The Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquers come in 12 beautiful shades including neutral, pinks/red, purple, raspberry, deep wine, and even unusual pops of yellow and blue. There are an assortment of intense and light shades with pops of color that I think truly gives the makeup lover enough variety to create a multitude of looks.
TEXTURE & FINISH 
The Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquers are creamy in texture with a very glossy finish. The only shade that has a touch of shimmer is RLL02 Naked Nude but it is not very noticeable on the lips.


PIGMENTATION 
All the shades have great pigmentation except for RLL11 Intense Yellow which, even with layering, still applies sheer. All the other shades have opaque color with one to two layers. 

APPLICATION & WEAR 
The Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquers a apply easily and stay creamy throughout wear. They fade gradually and do not leave a stain behind. The pink and red shades leave a slight tint but not a strong stin. They wear well for over 6 hours with minimal fading.


 

The Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquers are amazing lip products at a very affordable price - can't beat that. These are fun bold colors for spring and summer. I highly recommend trying these out!


A+
