As you already know from my previous post Parisax released a New Summer 2013 Makeup Collection (info & promo photos) featuring bright new 2013 summery nail lacquers (preview & photos), 12 new lip glosses (upcoming preview & swatches) and 6 new lipsticks. I know most of you are interested in the new Parisax lipstick shades so last week I decided to pay a visit to Parisax Professional and see the new colors in person. I must tell you they all look lovely and ready for summer even though some of them are more pigmented and opaque on the lips while others are more natural, provide a softer color and they feel so soft on the lips.
I’ve taken photos and played with every new shade and I even tried each shade on my lips so I can show you photos with lip swatches and you can form your own opinion about these new lipstick colors. I’ve also brought home with me 3 of my favorite shades so I will post my individual reviews later on this week.
Romania Launch Date – now @parisax.com, @completebeauty.ro

I swatched the lipsticks in the same order as the photo below.
Goyave Lipstick is a neutral light peach with golden shimmer that provides a sheer natural coverage on the lips. It’s a beautiful color to be worn this season and all summer long if you are looking for a fresh natural look. It feels soft of the lips but it tends to settle a bit into the lip lines. I own the Goyave lipstick shade because I’m always in the mood for something natural with just a hint of color during summer days. I will post my review in a few days.

Prune Lipstick is a medium purple wine red with gold shimmer that looks more towards a reddish purple once I swatch it on my hand but on my lips is appears as a reddish brown with gold specks. It feels soft on the lips and it has a good color payoff but is not completely opaque.

Groseille Lipstick is vibrant orange red with an excellent color payoff which looks opaque on the lips. It’s a very pigmented shade that will complement any skintone and add a pop of color.

Fraise des Bois Lipstick looks like a dark rosy peach once it’s swatched on the hand but it turns to a medium natural rose. It’s a natural color more suitable for fair to medium skin tones that want a neutral rosy pink shade on their lips.

Lilas Lipstick is a medium lilac with brown undertones once it’s swatched on the hand but on my lips turns into a medium lilac rose. It is opaque on the lips and feels creamy and soft. This was one of my favorite shades and I will review it later this week.

Pivoine Lipstick is my favorite shade from all of them and it’s such a bright raspberry color with a hint of shine and opaque on the lips. This is probably the first color I’ll be reviewing in a couple of days.
