Runway Rogue, Lip Products With An Attitude! ~ Review + Swatches

Runway Rogue is a new cosmetics company that's all about lip products with an attitude. Your attitude! From bold to subtle and everything in between, you can be sure to find a lip product to suit your attitude of beauty.

Runway Rogue is the creative vision of 90's supermodel Patricia Hartmann, whose favourite aspect of her modelling career was the incredible transformation that happens in the makeup chair. As a lover of all things that make lips luscious, Patricia carefully crafted each and every shade of this limited edition collection of creamy lipstick bullets, rich glosses and extreme long wear pencils.

All of Runway Rogue's lip products are made with high quality, mineral-based rich pigments suspended in hydrating butters and oils. They are cruelty-free and contain healthy ingredients such as Vitamin E, Jojoba oil and Chamomile extract. The lipsticks and lip glosses are paraben-free, talc-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free and are made with non-comedogenic ingredients.  

One of the first things that caught my eye was the packaging. The boxes are white with a picture of luscious lips showcasing the shade of the product inside. Simple yet beautiful.

The lip gloss comes housed in a sleek silver tube with a clear window to see how much (or how little!) you have left. The wand has a standard doe-foot applicator which picks up enough product that you don't really need to dip a second time (unless you're like me and need to be extra). There are currently 7 shades available and they retail for $19USD.

I have the shade Chameleon and it is absolutely gorgeous! It's a shimmery, golden rose that will flatter any skin tone.

As a lover of all things rose gold, naturally I fell for this gloss. It's very hard to capture each dimension of this gloss in a photo. It's glossy, glitzy, pinky, nudey (is that even a word?) and/or golden depending on how the light hits it. Chameleon is the perfect name for this shade because it's so multifaceted.

The formula feels comfortable on the lips, not tacky and not sticky. It feels like a gloss should feel-glossy! My lips feel hydrated while I'm wearing it and once it's worn off my lips are left feeling smooth. I don't usually wear gloss often, but I've been reaching for Chameleon a lot since I got it!

Now onto the lipstick!

Runway Rogue really outdid themselves with these lipstick bullets! They're a sleek silver-gunmetal shade and they have some weight to them, which I personally love. And they have a magnetic closure! There is nothing more satisfying (and practical) than a bullet that pulls itself closed. Tightly.

There are 8 shades to choose from and they sell for $21USD. I have the shade Casting Call and it's the most gorgeous deep burgundy shade I've come across in a while. It's not too bright or too dark; It's literally perfect!

"Ok, so I once had an audition where the client asked the models to show up with a dark red lip. Hmmm? Clients almost always ask the models to come nearly barefaced, so that they can basically view you as a blank canvas for whatever look they had in mind. What to do? I mixed and matched whatever I had available and showed up with this reddish burgundy lip. Well, guess what? I got the job, and ever since this has been one of my favorite shades. Now you don't have to mix and match, because I did it for you! Inspire serious lip color envy with this matte burgundy red, and if you want to give it an extra pop, top it with a layer of my High Shine Lip Gloss in Runway Red."

The lipstick has a sharp point that ensures crisp lines and makes lining the cupids bow a breeze. It doesn't feather and it feels amazing on the lips. It's a nice change from the oh-so-drying matte liquid lipsticks I'm (we're) always wearing. One swipe provides opaque coverage and it doesn't accentuate any dry patches. My lips feel so hydrated when I wear it thanks to the blend of jojoba oil, safflower oil, and aloe vera in it. 

For a bullet lipstick it's long wearing - obviously it will transfer/when eating or drinking, but it does so gracefully, leaving behind a nice stain. I can get a few hours of wear before I need a touch up and that's fine by me!

I'm very impressed with both the packaging and quality of Runway Rogue's lip products. I already have my eyes on some of the other shades in the line and I'm hoping they introduce some more in the future.
