Addicted to Stage Wondergloss: Narcissus & Persephone

So you're all familiar by now with my love for Stage Wondergloss, so this review is more about shades than formula. During the stage buy-one-get-one-free (BOGOF) promo I took the chance to splash out on two more shades and gosh they're GORGEOUS. Ladies meet Persephone (left) and Narcissus (right).

Much as I love Venus, I often wished it had a bit more pep to it as if I wasn't using it with a smokey look it could wash me out a touch. Narcissus is like a pinker perkier version of Venus. LOVE.

In the tube it looks pink but when applied the sparkly gold pigments warm it up to a neutral but luscious shade. It's a no-fuss shade that goes with just about anything and has enough pink to make me look fresh.

This shade must have been named for the pomegranet seeds Persephone ate in the greek myth that trapped her in Hades for 6 months. In the tube it's a scary bright warm red shade with cool shimmer. On the lips though it's astonishingly wearable and great for glamming up a day look or for a toned-down red lip look.

While not as versatile as Narcissus this shade is beautiful and can amp a neutral office look making you pub-ready in no time.

Strage Wonderglosses are RM55 each. Watch out for more Stage deals if you want to snap up more than one shade. Syen.... bought FOUR during the BOGOF offer. She adores this gloss!

What shade's your fave?

Looking at your luscious lips made me want to go back to using lipglosses, I've been a lipstick person for the past months!

Those colors are so pretty!

Plue: finish two tubes of lipgloss then you can justify buying!

Nikki: I vaccilate between the two. I find that when my lips look dry and the lines rather prominent I reach for lipgloss. These formulas are long-lasting but not crazy sticky where hair becomes a problem.

Shopn'Chomp: I highly recommend them! Thanks for stopping by!

Narcissus looks great! It's the exact shade I'm looking for. I hope I can find a similar shade here.
