I bought this because E.Jean, the columnist in Elle magazine, who is my personal Athena, recommended it in passing. That's all it took. And, she's right. It's a foolproof lipstick that just wakes your face up, and works even if you have no other make-up on or if your face is pulling a reverse Dorian Gray.
It's not too brown, not too red, not too dark, not too pale, and goes on very smoothly --
I also use it to soften the bold reds I like to wear - it's great over any color, really. It's a staple for me.
And no, it is not discontinued, because I just bought it at Walgreen's on Broadway - but I have noticed that lipstick selections differ in different drug stores, so just keep looking.
I am pale, yellow undertones, blue green eyes, some freckles, light reddish brown hair. And probably old enough to be your mother.
