Julep New York Jazz Lipstick Trio Swatches

 Julep recently released two sets of jazz inspired mini lipstick trios. Each lipstick trio retails for $28 ($22.40 with Maven Discount). I was sent the New York Jazz Trio in my May Julep Maven Box. Here are the swatches!

 Left To Right: Tea For Two, Satin Doll, Lady in Red
Julep describes Tea for Two as "Nude Shimmer Sheer".  Sheer kinda feels like an understatement to me.
 Satin Doll is called a "sheer poppy". I wish this lip color had more payoff because it's gorgeous in the tube!
Lady in Red is a "matte crimson". Unlike the other two shades, Lady in Red is intensely pigmented, and very creamy for a matte.  Lady in Red is also featured in the Paris Jazz trio.

  1. They don't look that pigmented! I'm especially disappointed in 'satin doll', it looked so gorgeous but the color hardly seems to show up :(
    but Lady in red is very pretty :)

    1. I agree! I was so excited when I saw Satin Doll...and subsequently so let down when I swatch it.

  2. I only like the red one, lipsticks should be pigmented in my opinion, go big or go home lol

    1. I agree! The other two are glorified tinted balms.

  3. The last one is really pretty! The others I feel like I've seen too many times in other lines :-/

    1. I think they're all pretty common, unfortunately =(. Also, $28 for three lipsticks that are essentially sample sized? Ridiculous.
