Ok... so this is the baby Meghan Markle wore for her wedding! The scoop`s out!! And this is my take on the product
It's a colored lip gloss/balm, you guys. I never would have thought in a million years to wear lip gloss/balm for a summer wedding. But Meghan always being different, stunned in this color. She/MUA picked a coral lippy for her big day and it was gorg with the smokey brown eye makeup
I managed to get a tester thru online purchase(much cheaper only the packaging differs) cos I didn't want to splurge. Coral isnt exactly my fav color but paired with smokey brown eye makeup and peach blusher, the look is to die for, esp if you have dark hair.
The gloss/balm by itself is just another ordinary lip balm until a a celeb turned royal endorses it, then the cash counters are ringing.
It looks like coral gloss on me(NC 37 for ref) and left my lips feeling hydrated/moisturized. Strangely, it didn't bleed like most glosses do. Having said that, it didn't survive the dinner full of oily, greasy food (which is understandable)
I can see myself wearing this to the office, cos it looks kinda natural with just 1 swipe. It's buildable for more orange/peachy/tangerine intensity ...(u get the color scheme idea here).
There is a faint smell of actal/peppermint which is ok and goes off soon
I layered this over Revlon balm stain "Irresistible No 065" a dupe for Honest Beauty`s Chesnut Kiss, the closest shade I could find in my region, as we dont have Honest Beauty here, like Meghan/MUA did. Layering helps keep the color in place ...and it was nice .
Have to say Meghan pulled it off well!!
Price wise- just think hard on how much you would spend on glosses and then decide...this baby is pricey
Packaging is typically very Dior, with fancy clear plastic pink casing and metal bullet(which im not a fan of) ...if ppl are paying premium at least loose the plastic casing, Dior)
Overall, a good colored gloss for summer, simple natural or smokey brown eye makeup.
If I have to wear this for my wedding, i will.
Repurchase? Nope! Not a lip balm fan
But loving this look while its still wedding fever!!
