Caked Makeup Lip Fondant Swatches

As promised, here are the Caked Lip Fondant Swatches. Not a fan of the packaging, and these do have a distinct chemical smell meant to imitate vanilla. But they perform above and beyond their counterparts. Just as much coverage as Dose of Colors, without the drying. They are head and
