Rain Cosmetics Tropical Storm Color Storm Lip LacquerRain Cosmetics Tropical Storm Color Storm Lip Lacquer ($20) is a medium raspberry pink with cool undertones. It has mostly opaque coverage with a glossy finish. I think it's a universally flattering shade and is perfect for a little extra pop of color without being super bold. I love wearing it on it's own, and I also love it paired with MAC Chatterbox Lipstick (which is similar in color) when I want a fuller coverage.
The texture is very smooth and has a hydrating, balm-lip feel on the lips. It contains Antioxidants, Jojoba and Vitamin E to keep the lips feeling soft as long as it's on. It's not thick, runny or sticky and wears really comfortably. When initially applied, the color is opaque, but upon wear, it settles down into a medium coverage. It wears down after a few hours and leaves a light rosy-pink hue behind on my lips.
It has a light fruity scent, but nothing obnoxious and it goes away upon application.
Rain Cosmetics is a Las Vegas based makeup line created for the modern and glamorous woman with a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. Recognizing the need for lightweight, long-wearing, moisture-rich formulas, Rain Cosmetics created a product line that lasts flawlessly all day into the night with little-to-no touch ups. I was introduced to Rain Cosmetics recently by my friend Makeup by Lacy and was so excited to see the brand in-person on my recent trip to Las Vegas. It's a great brand, and I'll be sharing with you some of their other products in the upcoming week.

Have you heard of or tried this brand? Let me know in the comments!
- Medium to full coverage color
- Lightweight - Wears comfortably
- Glossy finish
- Good lasting power - Around three hours
- It's a bit expensive, but I understand that it's not suppose to be a bargain brand. The prices are right up there with the department store brands.
- The brush applicator is nice, but it also pulls out a bit too much product. Because of this, I tend to get excess product gathered around the opening of the tube and inside of the cap.
