Lipstick Diary: What I Wore That Day

by Janine on 8 November 2012 · 5 comments

If you’re wary of Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Provocante and Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate in 04 because they’re way far outside your comfort zone, this lip colour could be your happy trend medium. The lipstick is creamy and comfortable, nicely pigmented for smooth coverage with the first couple of swipes, and doesn’t settle into the lip’s grooves as much as more matte formulas. No lip primer required.

A bit more burgundy-plum than it seems here (getting these shades right on screen is so tricky), definitely more lively and easier to wear than the really dark shades, this is Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig ($22 at Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora). It’s pretty rather than edgy.

If you haven’t ventured into the blackened-berry lip colour of the season yet, does this colour tempt you?

What a beaut! It’s very juicy, I love it. If that only makes sense to me, let’s pretend I never typed it. :D

Also, a long, long time ago….okay, not that long, I ran into a beautiful gloss. Lancome L’absolu Creme De Mat in Magie Pourpre. I think this is a fabulous colour for people not wanting to try the berry/wine lipstick. In fact, I think this is a fantastic colour in general.
Did I just highjack this post? I’m sorry. My mind wandered and I wanted to share.

Smashbox is fantastic, that’s a wonderful colour!

You didn’t hijack — you shared a recommendation! And I know that Lancôme shade. It’s gorgeous; great suggestion, lady!

This color looks beautiful! I am very much afraid of dark lips, even though they are the biggest trend this autumn. So thanks for introducing us to a more wearable color.
Nice smile, too!
