Lip Service: Something Old & Something New

I managed to score two AWESOME lippies… one new and one not so new:

The Lilac Lipstick is from Bobbi Brown’s new ‘Peonies & Python’ collection, and the Chantecaille Lipstick in Cardamom is to the right.

Lilac Lipstick. Now, I know it looks crazy in the picture (like MAC Blooming Lovely) but it’s not. The flash is making it look REALLY light, and it’s not. I promise you, in person this is a gorgeous WEARABLE lilac-rose color. I tried it on under artificial light and in natural light (1:00 in the afternoon) and it was so soft and pretty. It’s what ‘Blooming Lovely’ should have been… with no ashy finish and a flattering shade that’ll compliment a wide range of skin tones.

Same thing for Chantecaille Cardamom Lipstick. It’s a much deeper shade of orange-brown-red in person. It’s stunning on. I swear, my love for Chantecaille grows with every product. This brand is AWESOME!

And guess what I discovered, the foundation shade range goes DARKER than Banana! Yippeee!!! There is a shade darker, called Suntan. It’s equivalent to Guerlain Dore 25. I swatched it today and fell in love all over again. I love this brand. That is all.

Ciao for now!
