I don't often wear light colors on my lips. I'm more of a red or deep wine girl, but I really like this color for my less "dramatic" days. It seems to last all day. My only complaint is it's...

I bought this color thinking it's kind of a my-lips-but-better color, but its so much more than that. I love the mauve tones in it which make the pink-rosey color a little more edgy. I can wear...

Awesome pinky mauve pencil that does not have a lot of purple. The SA at the NARS Boutique in Greenwich Village recommended this color on me. Love to mix it with a bronzey gloss. Only minus is that...
