Morgana Minerals Lipsticks + A Giveaway Opportunity

It should probably already be a known fact that I LOVE Morgana Minerals lipsticks. However, the ones I originally had (Serenity, Licorice, Shrieking Violet, and Azalea Blue) were in the lip pot form, and I am just not a fan of that. I'm terrible with a lip brush, but that may have something to do with the fact that my lip brush is actually a regular cheapo paintbrush from Walmart. Oh well. Anyway, I ordered some full sizes and received them not too long ago. They did not disappoint!
I got Gargoyle (dark gray), Turquoise(...turquoise), and Very Cherry(rich but not neon red with a little shimmer to it).

Yaayy ^-^ I took some photos to show what they look like on. I know this has been done many times before, but hey, you can never have too many swatches amirite? Okay, maybe you can but I did it anyway.

Gargoyle: This color is described as "dark gray" but I don't see it that way. To me it's more like a soft black. Obviously it appears to be black but it just isn't quite as harsh. This one smells kind of weird in the tube but, once you put it goes away once you put it on. It's unscented, so it's just the smell of the oils and such. I'm a fan of black lipstick but I hate how difficult it is so naturally I love this color.

Turquoise: I died for this color when I saw it on Scrubbing Up Well's blog. Oh my gosh. It's so unique and pretty! Also, I kind of expected it to be dry and icky since it's a weird color but it's not at all. It's creamy and wonderful just like the others. I will definitely be wearing this out in public, I'm not shy! :D

Very Cherry: If you're looking for the perfect classy red lipstick, this is it. I feel like this picture makes it look more "clown" red than it is. It's very classy looking, and there are no orange undertones at all. I want this to be called "Ruby Red" or "Ruby Slippers" or something like that because that's what it makes me think of. This is my favorite of all my MM lipsticks so far, I believe.
