Beauty: Black Lipsticks {Pagen Angel vs Haute Core}

Sunday, February 8, 2015






I have always heard you should play up your best features, so since my lips are one of them features, I always try to wear some of the hottest trending lip colors that is out. So, when I saw that Wet n' Wild came out with a black lipstick, I ran to the nearest Walgreens and purchased one. The MAC I received as a Christmas gift and boy was I happy, because I missed when it went on sale back in November.

These lippies are true black, but because my lip has pink in them these colors is not true, so I had to swatch it about 2-3 times to show the actual color.

My review:

Pagan Angel: This lipstick is a creme, so it will go on kinda shiny. Con: this lipstick bleeds. Pro: The price is right $2.99 for this baby.





HauteCore: This lipstick is a matte, so it will settle without a shine. Cons: It's limited edition only. It was available for one day only. Also, MAC lipsticks sell for around $16, this lipstick was selling for $17. Pros: The marketing strategy was brilliant. This lipstick was sold on "Black Friday" one of the biggest shopping days of the year and for one day only Yep, MAC broke the internet with this one here. This lipstick stays on for at least 5 hours before a reapply is needed.





Now that I have worn both multiple times, I must say that MAC's HauteCore is my favorite out of the two.

Were the lippies a yay or nay on me? Would you wear a black lippie?

  1. The colors definitely look good on you. I really haven't gotten into the black lipstick yet, but since I can purchase one at 3 bucks maybe I'll stop at Walgreens today and give it a try!

  2. The black lipstick is a 'yay' on you, Bobbie! I like both actually but it's obvious that the MAC lippie would be better quality, particularly with color payoff and how it settles into the lips. I *might* get Wet N' Wild's "Pagan Angel" to see if I like black lipstick on myself (never tried it before) and if I like how it looks, I'll try to find a more quality one. Thanks for the swatches and compare/contrast.

  3. I say yay! Both lippies look great on you but the MAC stands out a little more. So sad to read that HauteCore was only available for one day. I want a black lipstick and would prefer MAC to the Wet N' Wild. Have you come across any other brands or shades that come close to black? Thanks for sharing.
