IMAN Cosmetics Lip Affair Palette Review & Swatches

IMAN Cosmetics Lip Affair Palette Fall 2013

Craving Sleek’s new Lip 4 Palette? Might I recommend the even more awesome IMAN Cosmetics Lip Affair Palette? Affordable, easy to find, and oh so beautiful for gorgeously pigmented lips for Fall?

You NEED it!

IMAN Cosmetics Lip Affair Palette is a new slick lipstick palette featuring five shades of vibrant, bold pigmented lipstick creams with a lip brush for application.

Best part about this palette? It’s five bucks!

IMAN Lip Affair Palette

Iman’s Luxury Lipstick gets combined into this easy to go palette with a travel friendly mirror for touch ups. The colors are super pigmented with a smooth, soft consistency and a high sheen finish. I don’t really “do” lip creams simply because I find the formulas dense and dry. That’s not the case with this lipstick palette. The colors are emollient and quite moisturizing with a slickness to them that makes for easy application and glide across lips thanks to moisturizing elements like aloe, shea, and vitamin e.

The real joy is the fact they are crazy pigmented and colors are extremely Fall friendly for bold, dramatic lip looks.

You get the following shades:

  • Hot (orange)
  • Scandalous (red)
  • Taboo (purple)
  • Flirtatious (fuchsia pink)
  • Kinky Pink (pinkish red)

    This looks awesome! Such pretty, pigmented colors. Want.

    Have you checked out the Inglot Color Play palette? I want it to be mine but it’s like $65 and I can’t justify buying that as a broke college student. *le sigh*
