ARDENCY INN Long Play Lip Vinyl (Club Remix & Original Mix) Review & Swatches

Ardency Inn Modster Long Play Lip Vinyl in Original Mix Club Remix Review
Ardency Inn Modster Long Play Lip Vinyl: Original Mix & Club Remix

ARDENCY INN is a new-to-me brand that has kick-ass colors inspired by the NYC music scene. I was scent two of their Modster Long Play Lip Vinyls to play with- and I am glad I did, because this brand rocks! (is that a pun?) These lip vinyl’s are extra-strength & pigmented glosses that truly shine. It comes in 4 shades:

  • Club Remix (magenta base + purple reflect)
  • Dubstep Remix (black base + pink reflect)
  • Original Mix (red base + orange and pink reflects)
  • Studio Mix (melon base + orange reflect)

I have Club Remix & Original Mix to share today…although I’m currently fan-girling over Dubstep Remix…it would have been perfect for winter!

Club Remix is a loud bright pink. It is definitely magenta, with just a tad bit of purple in it. It has a purple reflect, which isn’t that noticeable to me when I’m wearing it, because of how shiny it is. I can tell that it has a fine micro-shimmer, but it is so tiny that you can’t really see it or feel it, the shimmer just creates a glow.

It goes on fairly opaque, I used a thick coat to get a full-coverage effect, but it can also be worn over lipstick. I recently wore it over MAC Candy Yum Yum in my TMI Tag video.

Original Mix is a hot tamale red, with the same patent shine. This shade has orange and pink reflects, which make it more than your typical red. I really like this shade as is, but I think it would look great over an opaque red lipstick to make the most perfect stand-out red lips ever!

Original Mix

I think Original Mix would suit a lot of skin tones, it is definitely an orange-y red, but it isn’t too orange. I think it suits my fair skin well, but this cherry hue will look great on anyone. I forgot to mention, these have an innovative doe-foot applicator that is angled to fit on the lip perfectly…makes it easier to fit the contour of the lip  & apply product with a crisp edge.

As far as the formula of the Long Play Lip Vinyl’s, it is essentially like a thick lip gloss. It is a bit sticky, but it helps it last longer. And speaking of how long it lasts, I can get at least 4 hours of wear (without eating). It will rub off and make a mess if you touch it, so if you’re a lip licker you should watch out. Surprisingly, I found that the red, Original Mix, stained my lips a bit, but Club Remix didn’t. They didn’t stain my hand when I first swatched them, so I wasn’t expecting any staining. But, the staining looks nice & makes the color last a bit longer!

Definitely keep an eye out for ARDENCY INN this year- they are now sold at Sephora, which is a big deal! After being so impressed with these, I am definitely eyeing a few other products- including their Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Lilac, Custom Coverage Concentrate, Semi Goth Lip Gloss, and Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in pretty much all the shades…they even have a blue (Black is Blue) and an orange (Kick) that would be perfect for Tangerine Tuesday!
