Swatched: L'Oreal Project Runway Colors Take Flight Lipsticks

These two lipsticks are from the Project Runway Colors Take Flight Collection from L'Oreal. The collection has four parts and each was inspired by a bird. The four different birds are The Audacious Amazon (Parrot), The Watchful Owl, The Sultry Raven and The Charming Cockatoo. Each part of the collection includes 2 shades of nail polish, a blush, an eyeshadow quad and a lipstick. The prices range from $4.99 for the nail polish to $9.99 for the blush.
swatches are on clean, bare skin.
Sultry Raven's Pout is a pretty nude lipstick and I had to have it as soon as I saw it. I am always looking for that perfect nude lipstick. This is a really great one. It just might be my perfect nude! Charming Cockatoo's Pout intrigued me and I decided to take a chance on it. It looks almost black in the tube, which scared me a little. I really liked the way it looked in the promo photo on the display, so I got it and hoped it would go on sheer. It did of course, and it turns out I love the shade. I think both of these are very wearable, versatile colors. Raven's Pout went on smooth, creamy and evenly. Cockatoo's Pout was pretty creamy but went on just a little uneven, probably because it is more sheer. Nothing a little blending with your finger cant fix!
Here are some swatches on my lips. The first photo is my lips with just plain old chapstick. The other two are a layer of chapstick with the lipsticks on top.
See how much Cockatoo's Pout sheered out?
Many items from the collection grabbed my attention. I have a couple other things I will post photos of soon, and I am trying to resist the temptation to go back and buy more!
This collection is supposedly going to be released in October, but I have already seen it at many of my local drugstores. The display is up as several Walgreens, a Bartell Drugs and Fred Meyer near me. If you are looking for part of this collection and you live in the Pacific Northwest, you may want to check those stores soon. If you are able to go to Bartell Drugs, that is your best bet because L'Oreal is 30% off this week. You can also get a few $1 Off L'Oreal coupons at the L'Oreal website Here. You are able to do several different mini surveys to get multiple coupons. (The surveys just ask about your preferences and skintype, etc. to make recommendations for you.)
