That purple especially reminded me of By Starlight from Melt Cosmetics. That pink also looks very similar to their Shady Lady. I'll definitely end up adding those colors and more to my collection but for now I ending up purchasing these four shades:
|Ruby Kisses Blue Lagoon RMLS21|
|Ruby Kisses Blue Lagoon with NYX Sinful|
|Ruby Kisses Plum Wine RMLS12|
|Ruby Kisses Lavenderism RMLS20|
|Lavedenerism with NYX Betrayal|
|Ruby Kisses Dark Plum Scene RMLS13|
Overall, I think these lippies are an excellent alternative especially for someone who likes offbeat and unusual colors. Ruby Kisses includes blue, mint, gray, purple, black as well as a range of more traditional colors in pinks, nudes and reds. For the price of $3-5 it's worth a try especially considering brands that offer comparable colors are much pricer. They are full coverage but apply patchy at times. For the price, I say grab a NYX liner for a great base to make these pop even more. The ultra matte formula can be a little drying so make sure to prep your lips by exfoliating and adding a little lip balm underneath when wearing. The wear time is 4-6 hours and the matte formula makes these very versatile. Try adding a bit of gloss for a shiny alternative. Find these at your local beauty supply store or online on their website.
