When I first tried this shade I was pleased to see I could apply a sheer coat or easily amp up the color & add lip liner for a classic red lip. The color is strong and the feel is incredibly moisturizing with a shiny finish. I want to be able to rub my lips together and without stickiness or a rough feeling. I was so pleasantly surprised by the overall look and feel and even more thrilled when I checked the color after my typical breakfast and some time had elapsed. The color had faded a bit but I still had a strong wash of red on my lips. I applied another swipe of the product and was easily back to square one. Perfection! A++
strong red lip
In my quest to find a shade that encompassed the feel of the first to but in the realm of a “natural pink” I purchased pink truffle. The color is good but for me a little to close to my natural lip color. Still, the feel is perfect and moisturizing and a great option for go to lip butter to keep in my purse. I don’t feel like the picture above is truly representative of the color as it is more of a muted pink with brown undertones. This picture looks a little too red.
I had a really hard time trying to decide what pink shade was the best shade to try. Pink truffle wasn’t exactly what I wanted and other shades in the line were too pink for my coloring. I tend to look better in coral pinks because I have naturally red/auburn hair and add highlights (trust me, it’s unique and can be tough to work with!). I tend to break many style rules for redheads but pink color on or around my face is very tricky. I decided to give strawberry shortcake a try and am pleased to say the feel was just as fantastic as the others that I loved. In the dead of winter right now it isn’t quite right but I know that come summer when I work on my tan it will be perfect. Gotta love a good pink lip! Also, if you are someone who loves different shades of pink they have a ton of others in the line that you will love including a hot, hot pink and a cool pink as well. Lots of pink options, really!
