Isn’t this what we all think we’ll look like after buying a new lipstick? Well, I got the exact shade that this model is wearing, so I’m gonna be pretty close to looking like this for sure!
I recently went on a bike ride and brought my coral lipstick with me. (Who does this? “Bike ride, you say? Just a moment, let me grab my lipstick.”) I guess on one of the bumps in the road it must have fallen out of my pocket. Sadness. It was a gift from my sister and I hadn’t even used up half of it. It was a great color, but since it was a matte finish, it tended to get crackly and dry even when I moisturized and exfoliated. Bye bye, Smashbox Megatint in Mimosa…sniffle.
I tried to find the exact replacement, cause every girl needs a little coral in her life, but they didn’t have this line at the Sephora nearby. I brought my girlfriends with me for some help, and even recruited one of the Sephora employees. (These employees are super helpful. I said I wanted a coral/orange that wasn’t going to cost more than $20 and she had quite a few suggestions for me.) In then end we steered away from a pink coral to more of an orange coral. One might just call it “orange”.
I’m wearing it as I write this now, and I feel like I most probably look just like the model above. So far I like the texture, not too dry and more of a creme rather than matte finish. I think it’s the perfect color to welcome in the fall season. At least that’s what my friend said.
