Spell Baciare Lip Creme in A Lady Never Tells – light color
later applied on top of A Lady Never Tells
Spell Baciare Lip Creme in Victorian Vampire

Also, I tried blotting these colors after I had them layered and they looked awesome. I should have taken a picture of that, but I was pressed for time so I couldn’t.

And here’s a picture of Phaedra that was just too cute to pass up.

I really like this little collection. I’m especially happy with Nevermore and Victorian Vampire. I think that A Lady Never Tells doesn’t really work well with my skin tone. The eye shadows all coordinate together beautifully.

What do you think of this look?

      I really really like this. I actually think you look great with A Lady Never Tells!

      Lovely! Very effortless sexy. I agree that Victorian Vampire looks better on you, A lady Never Tells is a bit too snow bunny.

      Oh, Phaedra is too cute! Give her some loving from me :)

      I have mixed feelings about Spell. I only ordered from the once, mind you. I got their Vamp Up gloss in Bordello and their shadow in Blueberry Fizz. I love the gloss. However, 10$ is a little steep to pay for lip gloss (luckily I got it in a 2-for shadow/gloss deal), when you can buy MAC for $14 (and a larger quantity goes into MAC). Plus, MAC has longer staying power. I wasn't impressed with Blueberry Fizz. There wasn't very much pigmentation there imo. I got more of a blue/purple duochrome effect and more pigmentation from Aromaleigh Mystere Pure Hue. (Not saying they are the same colors, they are not…no repackaging accusations here.) Again, $8 is steep for a shadow that wasn't very pigmented or duochromey as others I could buy for between 4 and 5 dollars. Although this current collection looks pretty, none of the eyeshadows stand out as unique to me. Just being honest here with my thoughts.

      I love this look with the vampy lip! This is a hot one.

      Hi Lisa Kate,
      Thank you! I think I just felt a little odd when I looked in the mirror, I'll give it another try.

      Hi Saila,
      Thank you!
      I felt like the colors just melded together nicely. Ray and Dave both really liked this look.

      Hi Krista,
      I definitely recommend spell :)
      Thank you!

      Hi Tally,
      I really love the Blueberry Fizz color. Most of their glosses are $7.99 (the vamp ups are the only ones at $9.99). You're welcome to be honest. I definitely like Spell though. In particular in this set I really love Nevermore :)

      Hi Mermaidbird,
      Thank you!

      This is a gorgeous look on you. I especially like the one with the lighter lip color – it just really draws the attention straight to your eyes. Beautiful!

      I was going to say the same thing about A Lady Never Tells on you. I think Victorian Vampire looks fabulous on you, but ALNT just washes you out.

      Hi Katrina,

      Thank you ;)
      I'll be trying the lighter lip again, but I'm always drawn towards dark, vampy lips.

      Hi Lindsey,
      Thanks :)

      Yeah, sorry about that, I realized a couple hours after I posted that that their glosses are normally $8. And I do actually like the looks of Nevermore. It reminds me of flowersofromance which I love. Maybe they would be hit and miss for me like The She Space is for you. And thanks for letting us be honest. Unlike SOME people, ahem, companies.

      I love Nevermore,it looks really good in this look.

      Hi Tally,
      No problem :)

      Hi VampiressDoll,
      Thank you! These colors were made for each other, so they really harmonize nicely.

      Hi Squidmarket,
      Thank you! I think it's an awesome color.

      So, I probably will give the spell lipglosses another try. I do really like Bordello, although it dries my lips out a bit in the end (probably because it is a plumper?) What is the difference, in your opinion, between the Baciare and regular glosses? I am looking at this collection's glosses in particular and Haley's Bite. Thanks!

      Hi Tally,
      I like the glosses and lip cremes. I finally realized if I BLOT the lip cremes, I like them better than if I don't blot. Previously I'd have said I liked the glosses better.

      Wow, now I'm tempted to try some of those colors. So pretty!

      Hi Kanerou,
      This is probably my favorite collection from Spell cosmetics.
