Spend vs. Save

Spend: Silk Naturals lip gloss in Damsel ($.4.25 + shipping)
Save: Ellana liquid lip color in Precious (P150, around $3)

During my trip to the Ellana showroom, i tried a lot of their lippies (being addicted to them) and I noticed that one of their colors looked a lot like my SN lip gloss in Damsel. So I took out a piece of tissue and swatched them, and guess what? I was right! It's the same color!

Here's a swatch of SN lip gloss in Damsel:

Damsel isn't as popular as SN's other lip glosses such as Birthday Suit and Rare Berry, but this is one of my favorites. It's a bright but sheer pink that I think is very "young."

What are the differences between the two? First, SN lip glosses aren't really very glossy, so the Ellana is much glossier. Second, the Ellana has peppermint extract so there's a cooling sensation when you apply it. Third, the SN Damsel is more moisturizing and has excellent staying power! I haven't encountered an MMU lippie more long lasting than SN.

Of course, I didn't buy the Ellana lippie because I don't need two glosses of the same color :P
