High Voltage Lip Candy Swatches

Due to recent customer service complaints, long order waits, orders going missing and ingredient inconsitencies, I can no longer recommend High Voltage Cosmetics.
Soooo.... I pretty much cannot stop buying from High Voltage. Whenever Jasmine puts the 5 for $20 Lip Candy deal up, I physically cannot resist it. I just can't. Luckily for me, you can now get lip product grab bags! Sweeeet! And if you're reading this anywhen near time of posting, go and buy the very limited Heart of Glass now. Go on. *pokepoke*

Anyway, my last order was some of the 'tamer' colours that High Voltage carry. Let's have a butchers:

 'Bad Romance.'
 'Sunset Strip Strut.'
 'Va Va Voom'

'Kiss Of True Love.'

'Sweet and Deceitful.'

Sometimes I look at my lip swatches and think... I'd kiss the crap out of me if I wasn't me. Anyway... Not bad choices at all, if I do say so myself! Bad Romance might be a bit much on my skin, I'll just have to play and see what I can make it work with. I'm a massive fan of Sunset Strip Strut and Kiss of True Love already - just my kind of colours - and Va Va Voom will be featured in Lip Maths this week! I was hoping for a Lime Crime Cosmopop dupe in Sweet and Deceitful (which would be a fitting name for a LC dupe, actually, -_-) but it's more brown-leaning.  My word, does a peach lipstick do things to me! What shall I pair it with?

Bought anything pretty lately?


  1. So many pretty colors! I'm going to have to try these some day!

  2. You are oh so evil for tempting me!!!!!!!!! I haven't bought anything, but I know what I will buy tomorrow! :) New Sleek palette :)

  3. Lmao @ 'sweet and deceitful' being an appropriate name for a LC dupe!

    I love your lip swatches...your lips always look great. Soooo jealous! :)

  4. Kiss of True Love is gorgeous. :) Nice lip swatches!

  5. They're all lovely. Oh Lip Candies, how I adore thee! Bad Romance and Vava Voom are my favourite think.

  6. I think Bad Romance looks nice on you! :-)

  7. I have a lippie order from high Voltage making its way to me and I am so excited! I haven't tried any of the lip products yet, but I'm expecting nothing short of orgasmic bliss in a pot. Otherwise I'll be severely disappointed. And Sunset Strip Strut should be called Sunset Strip Slut because that would awesome.

  8. Good lord, I am going to have to get some lip grab bags! Every time I see swatches of Lip Candy they look so good! They apply just perfectly! Why haven't I ordered from HV yet?

  9. High Voltage lip products are next on my list of things to try. They have some gorgeous colours, I definetely need to pick up Sunset Strip Strut! :) x

  12. Oooh I have some High Voltage lippies coming my way... The 5 for $20 was too much to resist. You have me excited because I ordered Sunset Strip Strut and it looks gorgeous in your swatch!

  13. I'm so into the idea of the lip grab bags. I'm going to be buying one soon. <3

  14. oh lordy I was looking for lip swatches yesterday for a couple of these, why couldn't you have read my mind woman BEFORE my order lol. I shall work harder and trying to infiltrate your brains :)

  15. @The Peach: They're really great colours! I wanna catch em all!

    @Lyuba-chan: I'm not tempting! They're here for 'reference purposes'! Ha ha!

    @Stephee: :P My swatch lips are overly pouty and silly - they're quite thin irl.

    @Genki: I can't wait to wear it!

    @Lillian: I adore them too! Probably my favourite lip product like, ever. I LOVE Va Va Voom.

    @Mandy: Aw, thanks. I have no idea what to pair it with though.


    @Vulcan Butterfly: I think there's lots you'd like there tbh.

    @GemX: I love the Lip Candies, obviously. They are a little drying, but they're very long lasting, very pigmented and where they're in a pot, you can mix them dead easily!

    @jamie-lee: Thanks for your comment which I accidentally deleted as I was deleting horrid spa :(

    @RaeRae: Oooh, that'd be a great colour for you, I think!

    @VijiiS: I know! I want them all anyway so I don't care what colours I get, ha ha!

    @KittenMittens: SAHRY. Except I'm not... what did you get?

  16. I got the uber orange one, that CYY dupe one and 2 other I can't remember cuz I was all IHAVENTBOUGHTANYTHINGIN2WEEKSANDIWANTSTUFFNOW!!! :)

  17. Oooh bad romance is next on my list I think... got bitten by the lip candy bug ! I want more and more ! Have you tried the amped up glosses? So want to give them a go !
