Let me just start off by saying I’m a bad bad blogger. I received my order from Performance Colors at the end of May 2013. Eek. All I can say is a lot(of crap) happened last year and blogging wasn’t a main priority. But I have whipped out my lipsticks to swatch! I also have a few other goodies to swatch and post, but those will be in another post. Also because it’s been so long since I ordered a few of the colors are discontinued, but I had to swatch them anyways, just cause. And next let me say ohmygod. I need Zombie Bride( ), Badlands and Committed in my life, yesterday. I have been lusting over Zombie Bride since it came out and just discovered Badlands and Committed. Okay now that that is out of the way. Valentine, Vertigo and Vino are semi-matte lipsticks and the rest are the restorative lipstick formula. Also these are all the older formulas and I have a sample and fullsize of mango, but they are different shades since I got one early on when I made an order of cream eyeshadow(which are really awesome by the way) samples in 2012. Swatches!

Hottie, Islander and Rocket are discontinued. All of the other shades are still available. So these are the older formulas and not as pigmented as the newer formulas. They are still pretty! I love Vertigo and Vino. I need to get a full size of Vertigo! While I haven’t tried the new formulas yet, I’ve heard nothing but great things about them, and the old formulas were fantastic, so. Look out for a blog post in the next week or so on the other goodies I have to swatch!
