Lip Mix: Getting Revlon Stormy Pink and Peach Petal to Work!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Peach Petal (left), Revlon Matte Lipstick in Stormy Pink (right)

Anyone would tell you these look like 2 of the most gorgeous shades in existence. Peach Petal has been likened to MAC's Underage and Florabundance Lipglass, and Stormy Pink to Pink Nouveau.
But after I picked these up, I found the textures to be really hard to work with. 

Peach Petal tends to settle into every single groove and line on your lip, where they show up as ghastly lines of milky beige. Stormy Pink is so low in pigmentation and opacity that you need to layer several times for the color to build up to any sort of intensity. And by then, it's become cakey and uneven. 

So it suddenly struck me that I should try layering them together. 


It's still not 100% foolproof (it still sinks into lines just a smidgen), but you get a nice semi-sheer candy pink which is just a tad less blue toned and more creamy than Stormy Pink, and more even and wearable than either shade.
It even reminds me a bit of a deeper and glossier version of MAC's Viva Glam Gaga.
