Sunday Riley Modern Lip Color: Overview & Swatches of Every Shade Part II

This is a 3-Part Series featuring all of the Sunday Riley Modern Lip Color Lipsticks.

Sunday Riley Modern Lip Color features richly pigmented lipsticks that were created to hydrate and protect the lips.  These are creamy, one -swipe, full coverage lipsticks that wear for 4 hours. Each lipstick is housed in a gorgeous and luxurious gold case that is manufactured by the same people who make the lipstick cases for Tom Ford. This is lipstick luxury incarnate!

Key Points according to Sunday Riley:
1) This formula was created as the next generation of lip color. The formula has anti-aging and collagen building properties that help to repair and prevent the aging of the lips.

2) This formula is filled with Stable Vitamin C that was specifically chosen because it helps maintain youthful lip volume - while fighting lines. Vitamin C bolsters collagen levels to maintain youthful plumpness. Vitamin C also helps to reduce melanin production, brightens the skin, and repairs the effects of UV  damage as well as helping to fend off other types of environmental damage.

3) Proprietary "signature" technology is implemented in the making of this product. "Advanced color molecules activate when applied to the lips- offering long lasting highly vibrant 4 hour wear." This is achieved by attaching high impact pigments to soothing base molecules which results in long lasting fade proof wear.

4) Non-stop hydration and conditioning with 10% Shea Butter. This keeps lips soft and smooth.

 Available in 30 Shades available in a variety of textures: Sheers, Satins, Mattes, and Shimmers. The swatches are very true to color- the stock photos aren't always close approximations of the actual colors. It is also important to note that the swatches are heavily applied to white paper in order to be as true to color as possible.

Game Changer: Blue-based cherry red stunner.
Rebel Rose: A bright blue-based magenta pink. The swatch above is a more accurate representation.
Ruby Bite: A bright blue-based red with a hint of berry.
Stereotype: A bright blue-based hot pink.
Beret: A bright clean cherry red.
American Rose: A dark rich blue-based red.
Overall assessment: Fantastic lipsticks!
$32.00 available at Barneys New York (in store) and Dermstore
