Hate to wreck a 5 lippie rating but this doesn't work for me..i'm a fair, cool toned brunette with dyed reddish brown hair and rosey lips and this shade came out a dull, boring, pinky, murky color on me. IMO it might look becoming on somebody with light lips.
okay; so this is the 2nd time i bought this. i absolutely love it. it has been around for a while. my mama used to always put this on me in pageants, and used it up. well; i couldn't find it anywhere else. but recently i went to walgreens and they had it. this is by far my favorite. i like it better than my lancome.
This is a fun shade to wear for a night out. I usually wear it alone or with a pearly pink gloss as a highlight dabbed on the center of my lips. It's a frosty, pretty pink mauve with a lot of dimension. It's also a great color that can double as a lip stain (comparable to Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb). The lasting power is pretty phenomenal for a mid-tone lipstick.
I am a PPP Strawberry Blonde. Normally, I buy only high end cosmetics; however, Covergirl has surprised me a few good shades that are flattering, true to color, long lasting, and are frosted. I HATE dry matte looking skin and/or lips.
I like this color because it is a pinkish ruby color, so I can achieve multiple looks simply by changing my lipliner and/or gloss.
Looks fabulous with MAC Quartz lipliner and with MAC Burgandy Lipliner. Lancome Sundried Berry Le Lipstick creates a pretty plummy effect, which opens up a whole other range of make-up options.
Any MAC Lustreglass shade in pink, burgandy, or ruby looks super hot with this lipstick shade.....even Little V.
There are many options for blush, I personally like to use MAC Strada for a soft contour and MAC Angel in the apples of my cheeks. Lancome Pink Poodle is fun with this lipsick also.
I like to have a few staple lipliners, and versatile lipsticks, and glosses to create many looks with just a few products.
As for blush, I like a pink, plum, and neutral look.
For foundation-- Vincent Longo and for powder-- Chanel Double Perfections in Soft Beige. These won't change because they are a perfect match to my skin which allows to successfully play with make-up color.
I spend my money on eyeshadow because I can be uber-creative
For $5 you cannot go wrong with this lipstick.
