Pretty Amazing lip swatches

Bare Esccentuals released the first Pretty Amazing lippie (Rouge) in the TSV last year called The Perfect Gift. Since then an AD for The Perfect Gift was released containing Charisma. They also released two duos on QVC containing Rouge/Charisma in one pairing and a berry and a fuschia(Ambition) in the other. I was lucky enough to purchase Ambition from a lady on the delphi forums, and here are the swatches of them all together.

 L to R- Rouge, Charisma, Ambition




Rouge- described as a brick rose, mine is an ugly brown. I do not wear it and wish i'd have sent it back. It is probably the most unwearable lippie I own.

Charisma- is a light peachy pink, think Barbie pink.

Ambition- is a bright fuschia rose. My favorite of the three.

The formula of these lippies is like a liquid lipstick. It is very thick and takes some getting used to. It cannot be applied like a normal gloss. You actually have to take your time and apply a thin precise layer. It lasts longer on me than any lip product I own (which is a lot!). I hope for more wearable colors, as none of these are an everyday kind of color.
