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)

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    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*

  • Cindy Ramirez

    Oh oh! oh! WTB! I have that sleek palette, but oh purple! Can’t have enough purples.

    Random! Are you on reddit? I finally caved and made an account!

    Looks awesome! Love how there is a berry and an orange…seems like taboo colors that are missing in a lot of brands!

  • Debster

    Those look really good! Is there any feathering or travelling around the face with them?

    • the Muse

      no issues thankfully! I always have probs with sisterhood of the traveling lipstick but I didn’t have a hiccup with any of the shades!

  • amy

    I need this, although I’m on a lippie no-buy indefinitely… Iman is just amazing; is there anything this woman *can’t* do?

    By the way, that lip color was apparently created just for you! It looks absolutely gorgeous on you.
