This is a pinkish plum maybe kinda color and comes out like it looks on the lips, maybe a bit more pinker. Looks awesome with the MAC lipliner Dervish. This is really pretty with snowgirl the lipglass too. It is a nice color on me and I am pale. Very cute.
The trainer at mac picked this and said it'll flatter my LLL complexion. When she applied for me at the counter, I fell instantly in love with it. I tried to apply this at home and it turned out a pale pink that just disappears the minute I sip my first cup of fluid. I experimented several times by layering it thicker but it still didn't turn out the way the trainer had demonstrated on me. One day, I accidentally broke the lippie. So I decided to melt it into a mini pot and use a lip brush. WOW!! The result was awesome. The pink looked clear and bright. It looked exactly the way I wanted it. Gorgeous!
I *really* like the color of this lipstick. It's a BEAUTIFUL cool matte pink (think like Stila Snowbloom in a lipstick but a bit dustier) that's really glossy. It's a light shade but it shows up as medium against my PPP skin.
My only gripe is that it doesn't stay on long, but hey, it's a light lipstick. Nothing new there.
If you want to see what it looks like on a VERY PPP person, I'm wearing it in my picture that is named Mr. Toughie and me (I'm sitting on the couch with my cat).
Lovelorn is a bright bubblegum pink color that looked awful on my lips. Tried toning it down a bit with Spice lipliner, but that didn't work either. This was part of my Shademates 2003 lip palette, and the only color in there that I didn't like.
Maccosmetics.com describes this as "an emotive blue pink". Quite frankly, I don't think that does this lipstick justice. Lovelorn is a soft, cool-toned pink that is very similar to MAC Coygirl blush. This looks a bright pink, but the lustre formula allows it to go on more naturally. It almost blends in with my lips, but gives them a spark of color that brightens my face in an instant. A touch of this and a dab of MAC Pink Swoon blush is my quick and easy pretty look. Add some mascara and a bit of lipgloss for added girliness. For brighter pink lips, Lovelorn is great with Chanel Starlette glossimer over it. The Starlette gives it depth and sparkliness and intensifies the pink. This paired with charcoal grey or black smoky eyes is a favorite look of mine for concerts and special occasions.
This is definetley a barbie pink on me. However, I love bolder shades of gloss/lipstick so I think it's perfect. I'm a MAC C4/NC35
Looking for a feminine pink lip that's not too porn star or supergirlie? Lovelorn's it. A beautiful clear medium pink that's a bit cool-toned. Wonderfully long-lasting color, and smooth formula (Lustre). Looks great with Coygirl or any other cool-toned pink blushes. A face brightening kind of lipstick. :)
I love this color for a fun, daytime look. A true, bubblegum pink without shimmer. This really brightens up my face, and looks hot with pink cheeks.
I like this much more on me than in the tube. When the MAC MA recommended it I thought she might be mad! But it truly is a wonderful pink on me. BTW - Lovelorn looks absolutely fuschia in the tube.
Not quite hot pink, not quite barbie pink. It's sort of in between. I was scared when I saw this color, because it's VERY pink. As it turns out, Lovelorn is actually the color of my lips, just a bit brighter. Very natural color on me, and it brightens up my whole face without looking "made up". I am a cool PPP, so it may be a bit much for people who don't really love pink or have warm undertones.
