None, unfortunately because I've learned the hard way not to order bullet lipsticks in the summer. I am avoiding thinking too hard about which ones I want because I'll be sad if a bunch are sold out when it cools down enough for me to order some.
Yup, and Lisa's lip products are sensitive enough without all the heat adding to it. I did see she said in the latest video to not open the lipstick too much as the lipsticks could snap because of a how pigmented the formula is.
Yup, happened to 2 of my lipsticks. I didn’t even use them that often but they still snapped.
Same. I did contact them and they sent me new ones but it still sucked. Luckily all the shades look so different on me that it turned me off from buying her products. New Wave looks so beautiful, but I'll try to recreate it by mixing Danessa Myricks colorfix.
omg I've never thought about them arriving melted!
Yikes I didn’t even consider the heat melting down the lipsticks. :/
Also really liked Night Thoughts and Meet Me In Berlin. Painterly is my all-time favorite from her, it's so easy for me to throw on and I love the tone.
Great choices! She has the most alluring colors
I regret not choosing Painterly over Spirited away last year, in the long run I think I would have liked the tone better. I thought about buying it back but I'll give myself the opportunity to play with Meet me in Berlin and Night thoughts before I consider getting yet another lipstick !
LE is the exception to my no buy/low buy this year. I only bought rainbow spill. Might order a lucent one in a few weeks, but i’d like to see more swatches first. I really like je ne sais quoi, but i want to see how it compares to dance card.
I was reading your comment and this is exactly me! My husband and i put ourselves on an extremely tight budget, but i managed to wiggle rainbow spill in bc I’ve been waiting all year for it to come out. I was really tempted by new wave, but kept it down to the 1. Enjoy!
I picked up Je Ne Sais Quoi, Le Mepris and Sunday Matinee. Really badly tempted to get Meet Me in Berlin as well, but three is already over the top for my budget. I added on the fawn lip pencil as well as her lucent line can run a bit too sheer for me (I have uneven lip coloring). Excited for the release!
I’m so intrigued by le mepris, but I find light nudes intimidating lmao
I am too. It looks like the tone is finely tuned so it's not leaning too much a certain color (yellow, peach, pink, grey), but I can't really picture myself wearing such a light nude, and at this price I would prefer to be sure I'll wear it.
We got the exact same order! ☺️
I love the new shades but I’ve bought so many in the past and hardly wear them. I’m gonna sit this one out. The strawberry shade would be my pick though.
I was thinking the same thing!
That's why I bought it :D
New Wave. My first Lisa Eldridge lipstick!!
I hope you love it! :)
Just got Rainbow Spill, which I missed getting last summer and have been waiting for the restock forever! I’m so excited!!
Oh lovely! I hope you enjoy it. Hehe I added in Je Ne Sais Quoi into the mix because I could not help myself. How do you like her formula?
I’ve only tried the velvets so far (velvet ribbon and cinnabar) and love them. I’m excited to try the saturated lippies!
I have Skyscraper Rose and I loooove it. Give me all the summer neons! I love all three formulas but the Insanely Saturated one is really special.
I’ve also only tried the velvets so I’m excited to dive into her other formulas :)
What a cute shade name!
I won't be able to buy any right now because I'm broke, but if and when I'm able to, I'd would go for Night Thoughts, Meet Me in Berlin and Strawberry Shock.
I got Rainbow Spill when it first came out, and I absolutely love it! Enjoy :)
Strawberry Shock looks SO pretty. It also reminds me of a revlon lippy I have.... [https://www.revlon.com/lips/lipstick/super-lustrous-the-luscious-mattes?shade=crushed-rubies](https://www.revlon.com/lips/lipstick/super-lustrous-the-luscious-mattes?shade=crushed-rubies)
I wonder if they're dupes?
Oooh that's pretty, too! From the picture to me it seems to be a bit glossier, and a bit more intense. But I'd say they're quite close, still.
Did u have any issue of patchiness with rainbow spill? I ordered it last week and wore it out today… i found that unlike the rest of my LE lipsticks this one was patchy and sunk in quite a number of my faint lip lines so am quite disappointed with that.. i dont have v dry lips so wondering if im the only one with this problem :/
That's unfortunate! I do have very dry lips and often experience patchiness and other issues with lipsticks in general, so I'm used to always exfoliate and add lots of balm before applying anything. Some days not even this saves me from patchiness!![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|sweat_smile)
I haven't experienced any issues with Rainbow Spill, except on those "bad lip days"; and even then it's nothing worse than what I'm used to. I actually like how it applies and stays looking good for longer than other lipsticks that I have.
Maybe try applying it in a different way, like patting it or with a brush, and see if that helps?
None for now as a I'm on a no buy, but I hope to pick up Je Ne Sais Quoi, Palazzo and likely Painterly as I've heard such good things about the shade from others. I thought about Meet Me In Berlin but I haven't had good luck with Lisa's brown midtone nude shades, they tend to pull very orange on me.
Oh that’s very good to know. Browns are tricky so I’m hoping it is complementary to my skin tone
Browns are indeed tricky, I hope Meet me in Berlin doesn't pull too caramel on me. Fawn has a hint of orange on me, but fortunately Affair is brown enough. I tend to have an issue with some of her shades pulling a bit too pink on me for my liking.
I got Meet Me In Berlin, Palazzo (looks SO pretty), and impulsively added Songbird lipgloss in there because I've never tried her gloss. I spent more than I thought I would but I know I love her lipsticks more than anything and couldn't resist!!
I love her gloss formula. It’s very moisturizing, I often use as a lipbalm if I can find my actual lip balm
I got New Wave and Night Thoughts! I debated between Night Thoughts and Wonder Wheel (I restricted myself to two lol and I’ve been wanting a purple LE shade so New Wave was a no brainer) because WW looks like the pinker kin to Atomic Cherry and I’m into that. I might get WW later this year. I only have LE lipsticks aside from one MAC one and I use them every day I wear makeup. They are just so my jam.
I wanted both night thoughts and meet me in Berlin but you all are too fast! Night thoughts is sold out but I did manage to pick up meet me in Berlin. I also ordered one of the glosses I was interested in before but was waiting on.
Meet Me in Berlin. I feel like this will be what I wanted Painterly to be, and I feel like they’ll be fun to combine.
Plus, I’m a 90s kid who reads too many Cold War spy novels and couldn’t resist the name or the backstory!
any recs for the novels? :)
For woman-led Cold War:
-Secrets We Kept, Lara Prescott
-Our Woman in Moscow, Beatriz Williams
-American Spy, Lauren Wilkinson
-Code Name Helene, Ariel Lawhon
-The Alice Network, Kate Quinn
-A Woman of No Importance, Sonia Purnell
But there’s a reason John Le Carré is a classic! Even though his protagonists probably wouldn’t wear lipstick 💋
thank you so much! its a genre i havent explored at all, super excited
I just picked up Night Thoughts and New Wave!
I got Je Ne Sais Quoi, Le Mepris and Sunday Matinee for myself (I’m boring lol) and Meet Me in Berlin for a friend! Absolutely love that tan shade but know I can’t pull it off.
I bought Je Ne Sais Quoi and Strawberry Shock for myself, and Sunday Matinee for my mom. I was tempted by Night Thoughts because I loved how it looked patted on, but I know I wouldn't really use it. Probably. 😅
I got Meet Me in Berlin!
When I’m back to being paid regularly, I will get Night Thoughts, Painterly, and maybe Palazzo
I'm on a low buy but knew this was coming and planned for it so I only picked up Night Thoughts. It is exactly the cool moody deep shade I'd hoped she would make one day in the Lucent formula.
Night Thoughts and Sunday Matinee for me. I wanted Le Mépris and I knew it would sell out if I didn’t jump on it. I heard it’s gone now! But I just could stretch the budget that far.
I got meet me in Berlin and strawberry shock.
Super excited for strawberry shock, reminds me of the color of a liquid lipstick I had ages ago that I got rid of bc I just couldn’t do liquid lips anymore.
There’s like four other shades I have my eye on but I’m waiting to see swatches/try ons of them 😂 night thoughts and palazzo in particular I really had to hold myself back from
I had to hold myself back from Palazzo too!
I picked up le mepris, je ne sais quoi, meet me in berlin from the new collection. While browsing the site I decided to add intrigue, petal, fawn (+ matching liners) to the basket. Damage is huge but no regrets ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|money_face)
I bought "new wave"and "skyscraper rose". Cool brights are my weakness.
I got these exact 2 shades ! Her release was the exception for my no buy July.
Based on the model pics (which I find misleading because the LL lipsticks all look super pigmented on everyone), I was only going for Meet me in Berlin because I was hoping for a gorgeous brown color, but after seeing Night thoughts in her video, I had to add it to my list ! I ended up getting both.
Je ne sais quoi gave me pause, the idea of a muted coral is *very* appealing to me, but at 32€ that's a big gamble for something that I may not like at all, so I went for the 2 shades that made complete sense for me to get (also I love the names, and Night thoughts might be a great casual goth shade on me depending on how I build it up, yay !)
I got Night Thoughts and Je Ne Sais Quoi. I was thinking of not getting any this time, but then I saw the shades and I gave in 🙃🙃🙃
I got Rainbow Spill, Strawberry Shock, Night Thoughts, Rosy Shell, and New Wave. I've been wanting Rainbow Spill for years! New Wave is a shade I've been dreaming of Lisa creating, so I am very excited! I feel like there was a good variety in this release
Her range of colors are always so fun and her description and inspiration for her color schemes is very thoughtful.
a fellow cool tone and brights lover!
Nailed it! Haha
I got New Wave and Night Thoughts. They will be joining my other LE cool tones lol. I love her love of pink! It’s so versatile.
Depending on how I like the formula of the super saturated ones I got, I might get Strawberry Shock and New Wave before summer is over.
I got all the new ones besides the palazzo one as i dont use neutral reds that often and felt like i have too many reds already. and atomic cherry since i havent been able to snag that before. i've decreased my spending this year on makeup and skincare and perfumes about 80%, since i started low buy, and LE is my exception to it. so my hubby said go for it. he's precious :) hope you all love what you bought!
I’ve also been on a no (low) buy and have way too many reds. I was wanting Palazzo but I choose be good and pass. Enjoy the new ones as they arrive! Such stunning colors :)
Got all the new Lucent shades - as much as I’ve been a bit of a completionist, I just don’t wear colors like the Insanely Saturated line.
I was curious to try the Insanely saturated formula, but wasn't tempted by any shades. Maybe next time !
I'm on a no buy currently but if it's still in stock when I'm back to normal routines I'm feeling tempted by Je ne sais quoi and perhaps Kitten Mischief (not new)
This was the first time I completely skipped Lisa's new lippies release.
I had some interest in the shades Je Ne Sais Quoi, Le Mepris and Sunday Matinee. I however already own Dance Card, Velvet Petal and Velvet Beauty, so I wrote to their customer service prior the launch, requesting comparison swatches... they sent me pics of hand swatches of the new shades only and told me I can look for swatches of the "old" shades on her IG. Which I find a bit shady tbh... So, I played around a bit and figured these shades are very similar (for example, I can dab a bit of Velvet Morning on my lips before applying Dance Card, and I get the exact same look as with Je Ne Sais Quoi, applying Velvet Beauty+Petal = Sunday Matinee). As for Le Mepris.. I decided not to get it, because I already have a similar shade in Revlon, that scratches my itch for "almost concealer lip" look. And Revlon has better pigmentation.
It's also unreasonable for me to pay 32€ + 4€ shipping, to order just 1 lippie and risk it not working for me. I've also had some mixed experiences with her Luxuriously Lucent shades, I find her later releases are not comparable to Love of my Life (formula and pigmentation wise).
I got all of them.
Same! I’ve tried only buying a few in the past but always end up going back for the ones I missed! Luckily my completionism is only for the bullets. I’m not crazy about the gloss applicator, so I only have a few of those, and a few pencils.
Wow! That’s amazing! 🤩 I have all the products she’s launched so far - foundation, eyeshadow, highlighter, blush, lipsticks, gloss,Liner, etc., I have every shade maybe except for foundation. Since her restocks take time, I usually end up buying everything during each launch.
Yes, thank you (feel less guilty now) :D Massively got into her in like the last two weeks - no idea what has come over me but I adore all of the shades and I have to say I have never trusted someone before to put shades together that genuinely look good on most people - its a first for me,
Lol I should be the one feeling guilty. I end up buying everything she releases and I can’t say no 😭
I know what you mean - at least we are happy lol. I even toddled along to her pop up on Saturday and everyone was so nice and they were giving us ice follies in the queue outside - glad our money is at least going to a good company!
I ordered Meet Me in Berlin and Le Merpris.
I'm a sucker for any type of grungey brown so I couldn't stop myself. I was going to get Kitten Mischief, but when I saw it swatched next to Le Merpris, I liked Le Merpris a little more since my lips are already very pigmented. I thought Kitten Mischief might read more pink on me and that's not what I wanted.
I wanted to get something else, but I'm moving away from bright colors on me. I wish Go Lightly as a lipstick had come back this time. I missed it when it first launched. Impatiently waiting until it does come back.
If it makes it better. I have to lightly and it’s too sheer, settles in the cracks and doesn’t show up well. The gloss is a million times better.
I appreciate that info, thank you! My hesitation on the gloss version was the shimmer/glitter mentioned in the description. Is it at all visible on the lips? If I can see it, I feel like a disco ball lol.
Looking at it swatched on my hand and lips. There are tiny gold flecks in it but I don’t notice them outside of the tube. I even asked my 10 year old and husband out of curiosity. They agree, not sparkly
Thank you! Love the family involvement, you've given me a lot to think about and I feel like there may be a 2nd order in my future.
I’ll look again soon and get back to you, currently enjoying the sleepy baby on me. From what I remember it’s not over the top sparkly or shimmery. I’m in my late 30’s and don’t gravitate towards the sparkles like I did 15+ years ago.
I got strawberry shock. She got me hooked on revlon’s strawberry suede many years ago and it was discontinued. I spend every summer looking for a perfect strawberry red but I haven’t come close. I hope this one will fill that hole in my heart
None. Her lipsticks give me a severe reaction that doesn’t go away for about 5 weeks! Terrible!
I’m sorry you had that experience :(
No worries. I plan to buy the rare beauty ones . Hopefully they’re better
ALL OF THEM!!! Not really. My Rainbow Spill is wearing away though so I want to replace that. Plus definitely Rosy Shell.
Je Ne Sais Quio and Sunday Matinee
I just ordered Skyscraper Rose and New Wave.
Lovely color choices!
I love a good pink lipstick. And I couldn't resist the purple one after I saw how it looked on the models.
Had to limit myself to 3, so I got Wonder Wheel, Night Thoughts and Je Ne Sais Quoi.
I also really wanted Meet Me in Berlin, Rainbow Spill and Atomic Cherry from her previous launch. Maybe next time!
I limited to getting 3 too, hehe. I am still eyeing Palazzo but I’m choosing to be good. Plus I have other red shades from her Velvet line so I don’t need more reds in my collection
Le Mepris for sure! I also liked Night Thoughts, but am going to be good and stick to one for now.
Yaaay, I found a Lisa Eldridge thread!
I got Atomic Cherry, Rainbow Spill, Strawberry Shock and Saturday Matinee. I don't intend on keeping them all - to be honest Atomic Cherry is going to go back I think as my lips are quite pigmented anyway and the lucents don't seem to do anything for me. If you're going to wear lipstick, might as well make it a bright one, I guess.
I'm going to see if Strawberry Shock is too similar to Velvet Morning to keep, but I love all the insanely pigmented ones. Rainbow Spill is a much less drying dupe for the Kevyn Aucoin neon I love but never wear because it's drying, and I love it. Saturday Matinee will be my 'day off' lipstick I think. I LOVE THEM!
Finally, after missing out the past couple years, I got Rainbow Spill and Skyscraper Rose, and one of the new ones, Matinee.
the Saturated formula is my FAVORITE, and i adore my Skyscraper Rose from last year, so I got New Wave (omg SWOON), Strawberry Shock and of course the Rainbow Spill i missed out on last year (I kept myself from buying it then by convincing myself that my YSL 52 was a dupe lol). and I also threw in Meet Me in Moscow and Night Thoughts of course, because I love those grungy shades! I was really torn about Je Ne Sais Quoi, but ultimately passed.
Just ordered Sunday Matinée and Strawberry Shock. I made myself wait and think about the purchases more and am proud of myself for that…Lisa could sell me anything.
I got Painterly - hoping I like her Lucent formula, I tried the Velvet and it was too drying for me. I'm meant to be on a no buy but once hers are gone they're gone for the year so shh. 🙈
I’m in the same boat! I won’t tell if you don’t 🤫
Honestly none, They are way too expensive (for me) and hard to get, I know I can get the same formula and colors in korean lipstick for a fraction of the price
Hmm I don’t think exactly. Like there aren’t any good brown lipsticks are aren’t just straight red, and most other pinks and reds show up very white based and neon. And there isn’t much inclusivity to skintones deeper than …maybe medium.
I got Strawberry Shock and Palazzo. Tempted by Meet Me In Berlin, but I don't have great luck with browns so I would want to actually try it on before spending that kind of money.
I just bought Je Ne Sais Quoi, Sunday Matinee, and Meet Me in Berlin, and Velvet Cinnabar! I was super tempted to get Palazzo too, it's such a nice red.
I've managed to get my hands on:
- Night Thoughts
- Strawberry Shock and
i dont think she's ever had one, but i can't swear to it. maybe when her brand is more established and she keeps stock always there would be room for sales :)
No. In the first few launches, there was an option to buy a trio set of lipsticks and you would get a minuscule discount (like 3 euros or something) and a free velvet pouch. She stopped doing that last year.
I picked up Meet Me in Berlin and Palazzo. If it’s still in stock, I’m interested in Wonder Wheel after seeing some more swatches from creators!
Meet Me in Berlin, Palazzo, and Strawberry Shock
I got rainbow spill and rosy shell
I got strawberry shock and palazzo! I’m gonna give one to my mom when I see her in august after 3 looong years. I’ve previously bought a velvet (cinnabar), the decade liner and liquid shadow in Diana. And I really really like the nuanced colors she put out. The decade liner is surprisingly my most used item. I worry about all the stories of breaking lipsticks though since I plan to carry these from Chicago to india when I get them 🤞🏽
I kind of wanted them all, but I knew the browns were not for me as I look horrible in them. Opted for Wonder Wheel and Strawberry Shock, but I may get something else next month if they dont sell out.
I think this time round she either has a larger stock or not as many buyers as last time I remembered some sold out within hours!
Meet me in Berlin looks interesting but honestly lip products are just something I’ve decided to buy drugstore. I still wear a mask at work and a lot of the time in public so it feels like a waste. I can understand why lip stains are taking off more, and I’m debating ordering the Victoria Beckham ones as a birthday present to myself
Lisa always tempts me though, and I wish I lived in London so I could swatch in person. Her descriptions of colors are so vivid and I absolutely love listening to her describe shades. She’s the most articulate brand owner and I think that goes a very long way.
I wanted Le Mepris but it's currently discontinued D':
I ordered 4 shades: Strawberry Shock, Sunday Matinee, Night Thoughts and Je ne sais quoi. Can't wait to play with them.
I ordered meet me in Berlin and am hoping there will still be stock in other colors after I try it, but I didn’t want to order more as I haven’t tried that formula yet.
