Manic Panic Collection Lipsticks Review + Swatches

Hey guys and dolls! The lovely people over at Manic Panic were kind enough to send me some goodies once again. This time I got some lipsticks (and a gloss) from their cosmetics collection to try out, and I was so anxious to receive them in the mail. I was really excited to try their lipsticks out because I've seen many YouTube gurus and bloggers use them in tutorials and they all look so gorgeous.

About MANIC PANIC: One of the best things about MANIC PANIC besides their affordable prices, is that they are Vegan and Cruelty-Free! The company was founded on 7/7/77 by sisters Tish and Snooky (who were in the original Blondie lineup!) in NYC. Their edgy store catered to the punk rock and alternative crowd and was a hit with people from all over the world. Tish and Snooky introduced their customers to MANIC PANIC hair dyes in every color of the rainbow with matching wild colors for lips, nails, and eyes. MANIC PANIC hair color and cosmetics’ popularity soared in the late 80’s and the sisters began distributing their line on a small scale right out of the little store. The rest is history!

I chose three lipsticks; Tainted Love, Hot Hot Pink and Deadly Night. Is the packaging adorable? They also threw in a lip gloss for me named Radioactive. Woop!

From Manic Panic's website"Lip locked and loaded Manic Panic’s smoldering shades of lipstick make a dramatic impact! Leaving no shade unturned, Manic Panic’s assortment of colors and textures tempt you to stray from an otherwise predicable palette. The luxuriously creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with vitamins A, C and E. 

Pretty, fun and cool Manic Panic’s lip locked lipstick offers bold, vibrant colors from a matte to shimmer finish. The silky smooth formula diminishes fine lines and creases while moisturizing your perfect pout. One application is all you need to deliver the perfect amount of color pay off. Ensure complete versatility and total confidence with this vitamin rich lipstick. Packed with antioxidants it’s the perfect accessory to create your total look. Keeping in perfect Manic Panic integrity, these enigmatic colors are 100% vegan and cruelty free. So don’t wait a minute longer, unlock the color and prove that lips form a powerful message!!"


Deadly Night: A deep royal purple with blue shimmer. This color is so vampy and magical! It has swirls of blue shimmer in the bullet that resembles a midnight sky. It's creamy but it applies a bit uneven, so more than one coat was required for complete opacity. This lipstick along with the other two have no noticeable scent.This shade wore for a about 3 hours without having to re-apply.

  Pigmentation: 4/5
Application: 3/5
Longevity: 3/5

Tainted Love: bright strawberry red with a satin finish. This shade of red is all sorts of amazing! It's so bright, it's basically almost neon! It leans a bit orange, but that just makes it a little extra special and sets it apart from other red lipsticks I own. I love how extremely creamy and buttery it is too. It nourishes my lips almost as good as a lip balm! One swipe will give you a good amount of color, but two coats will give you an intense color pay-off. This shade wore for a solid 5 hours! Definitely a new favorite in my collection. 

Pigmentation: 5/5
Application: 5/5
Longevity: 4/5


Hot Hot Pink: A bright pink with a satin finish. This lipstick must be Barbie's go-to shade! It's super intense, pigmented, and hydrating. This is more of a blue based pink, so it would look best on people with neutral/cool undertones. Not a shade I typically go for, but it's lovely nonetheless. The consistency, finish and longevity is just like Tainted Love. 

Pigmentation: 5/5
Application: 5/5
Longevity: 4/5

Overall, these lipsticks are spectacular, and for only $8 USD a pop. they're a hit! Manic Panic offers free US shipping on orders over $25. Check out the entire collection, plus ingredient lists over at /www.manicpaniccollection.com.

Radioactive: true cherry red with gold shimmer and cupcake flavor. To save myself from being repetitive, you can check out my MANIC PANIC High Voltage Lip Gloss review HERE. My thoughts are pretty much the same as the other glosses I already own, but this one blows the other two out of the water! This gloss is so pigmented and intense, it's pretty much more like a liquid lipstick. It's non-sticky, smells like cupcakes, and lasts for hours upon hours. The lip swatch is just ONE COAT. Insane. And of course, the star of the show is the illuminated wand! Available for $12 USD over at www.manicpaniccollection.com.
Pigmentation: 5/5
Application: 5/5
Longevity: 4/5

  13. Ronnie- This was an interesting review. I didn't even know Manic Panic had a cosmetic line. And so far, I'm in-love with the Deadly night color & Lip gloss. Check out my blog http://makeupcostumes.blogspot.com/ it's a different approach towards makeup.
