Packaging: The Extreme Rouges look like the taller, more sophisticated older sisters of Etude's Fresh Cherry Tints. Ergonomically speaking, the tubes are very easy to hold. There is a pop-up mechanism at work in these glosses - screw them open, and the caps pop up automatically. Wannabe science nerd moment: I think this means the glosses are closed up vacuum tight, because they wouldn't be able to pop up like that if they weren't in a vacuum. (Please correct me if I'm wrong, real science nerds! ♥)
The wands have angled doefoot applicators, which make application more precise. I also find them more velvety than the ones that come with my other glosses.
Color and Pigmentation: BR801 is a lovely nude shade. It was the color I wore on graduation day, paired with a smokey eye and a super light dusting of blush.
PK102, on the other hand, is an adorable bubblegum pink. I find myself wearing it quite often when I go out. There's something about the color that makes me happy, which is why I also sometimes wear it at home, even if I'm only bumming around.
Pigmentation, by the way, is SUPER STRONG. What you see on the tube is what you get on the skin, and even on the lips.
|One dab gives you THIS MUCH color intensity already!|
I don't know why the camera wouldn't focus on BR801.
In Action: Did I mention how pigmented these glosses were already? Yes? Well, did I mention how long-lasting they are too? :D These glosses last 5-6 hours on me. They're pretty resistant to drinks, although they don't hold up well against food. That, or maybe I just tend to wipe my mouth a lot while eating.
|BR801. The perfect nude!|
|PK102. Sweet and playful pink!|
