I was flipping ( sorta' ) through the current issue of ELLE magazine and a little something caught my eye. I am still trying to find a lipstick that I can just grab and put on without a mirror. You have one I bet. You know that kind of lip color that will work no matter what you are wearing. A perfect my lip color, but better kind of color. Nude but not chalky or ashy. I saw this color and it looked perfect. I thought maybe the color in the magazine was just a bit too red and maybe it would be different in person. I found it it Target and it did look a bit spicy. They should have called it Spiced Mocha. I thought I would give it a try anyway.
This is the lip color worn by Uma Thurman for her ELLE cover shoot
On my hand it looks mauve, spicy mauve
Lip gloss: Natural by NYX
My lips tend to feel dry so the semi matte finish bothers me. It looks great but just feels as though it's drying my lips out. I even use a lip balm before I applied the pencil and lip color. Love the color! and I have been reaching for it a lot as I'm running out the door!
