Eager to try a new lipstick for fall? I am desperate for that deep plum color seen all over the fall 2012 runways. Now was my chance to try it on and filter my shade, without having to wipe off excess color with a department store tissue! See above for my test run of the color; yes, the lining of the lip isn’t perfect, but I certainly got the gist of which shades did and did not work with my complexion.
What do you think of my new lip hue? I think I’m going to gofor it (and I PROMISE to apply it within the lines, of course)!
