LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this lippy. It is the closest I have come to finding a lookalike for an old HG--Cliniqe Applesauce---that was discon't in the mid-90's. On my MMM complexion with dark hair and eyes, this looks like a warm peachy/coral that doesn't make me look washed out. I hate spending $22.50 on a lipstick, but for a color this unique, it is worth it.
This is such a great nudey peach, I do however prefer to top this one with gloss for a little more oomph! I've tried this with both Frisky Summer and Turkish delight l/g for equally satisfying results! I love how easy Nars l/s glide on and moisturize my lips.
This is a lipstick I've just "rediscovered", as Nars is showing it for Spring, combined with the new Jilted Love lipliner and the Frisky Summer gloss. Well, this morning I applied the Barbarella, then lined with the Jilted Love, and finally glossed with (believe it or not) Flareup!My lips are strongly pigmented on the mauve side but this lippie reads as a warm coral on me. Love it! continued >>
Love the packaging, love the colour, but being a lippie, it doesn't last, but I still get sucked into to new ones. I like this, it is a nice peach with a hint of pink, but more peach, very pretty. A bit pricy but the colour and packaging make it up!
Barbarella is a sheer pale apricot with a hint of pink. The formula is such that it allows for a creamy but still natural finish or the sheerest application that makes for a really natural and innocent look. Think Asian pop. It's a very cute color that goes well with my high contrast coloring -- very pale skin, dark hair, brown eyes, black eyebrows.
$22.00 for a Lipstick(it's NOT chanel, afterall)? & I would Not have payed THIS price, but I got One free & one for 20% off- so the 2 should last quite awhile, as it is Not an Everyday L/S, but it is a great-sexy Nudish/peach- with a smoky eye-Love the texture & Packaging-
I use Lancome JT in 'Simmer' over this- Just gorgeous
I love this lipstick! i gives my lips a natural peachy look.It's not too bright,so it looks natural.:) this lipstick is fantastic! :)
I was a little bit frightened when I saw this in the tube. To me, it looked like an opaque peach colour with orange tones. However, when applied it is a very sheer, natural looking peach colour. I am a PPP, and I have to be careful with this kind of shade, as it can wash me out. However, Barbarella didn't wash me out at all. I highly recommend checking this one out!
This is the lipstick I reach for when I want a natural look. I pair it with Nars Rosebud lip pencil to achieve the most beautiful YLBB color. It's creamy yet kind of sheer, which is fine with me, as a more opaque peach would totally wash out my pale complexion.
This is a very pretty peach color without too much of the orange. Looks great on PPP skin since it creates a beautiful glow. Texture is great but moisturizing power is in question. Would suggest use of lip balm prior to application to ensure no drying effect.
