Opps! I am late in posting this up since it’s a Fall 2012 collection, but I thought i’d still show you nonetheless since it’s still available at the counters 🙂
Imagine a new lipstick that behaves like a highlighting blush, thanks to radiant new shades and a new treatment balm formula.
Described as a highlighting blush for lips, well, not sure how that works because personally I still see it as a lip color.
It’s a beautiful and practical packaging with the quilt print and it doesn’t get scratched much in handbag. It comes in 10 shades for different complexions, from beige to rosewood.
I have 4 light shades from light beige to rosey shade.
Trompe L’Oiel is a extremely light nude color, and Sillage is a rosy-red on me.
The texture is soft and it is fragrance-less. It’s easy to apply and not drying.
My lips are pale in nature and most colors show up as it is. Hence, I prefer pigmented lipsticks else I look really washed out without eye makeup.
Trompe L’oeil is very nude and it looks milky beige on my lips. I have tried this with heavy eye makeup, it did not look bad but the ‘color’ disappeared in no time.
Indiscrete has a peachy-rose tone, it’s not too nude and brings out the color on lips. It looks really natural, as if I am just wearing a lip balm.
My favorite color of the lot is Sillage. It’s a very sweet coral red that brightens up the face without being too overpowering.This is my daily lipstick for work now as I find it good enough to look polished without much effort.
Overall, I won’t say I love the shades in this collection but if you just want a hint of color or very natural look, you may look at it. I always prefer a more pigmented lip color due to my pale lips. The rather heavy price tag and the fact that it’s not lasting on me which is quite a pity. In fact, I find that the glosses actually last longer than me compared to these.
Did you get anything from this collection?
