Cle de Peau #124 Extra Silky Lipstick ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a petal pink with yellow undertones and soft pink shimmer. This is a gently warmed up pink, which isn’t always the easiest kind of pink to find, and it looks glossy and pretty-in-pink on the lips. Extra Silky Lipsticks are creamy, smooth, glossy, and decently pigmented (I haven’t tried the full range, but the ones I’ve tried have good pigmentation).
Physicians Formula Bronze Brown Eyes Shimmer Strips($10.95 for 0.26 oz.) is a strip of nine different shades designed to complement brown eyes specifically. Bronze Brown Eyes includes: a neutral lilac, soft bronze brown, coppery bronze, golden champagne, soft copper, bronze, light copper, plummy brown, and burgundy brown. All nine shades apply smoothly, give good color pay off, and have a frosty finish. (If you’re into matte textures, Shimmer Strips are not the way to go.) Physicians Formula describes the shades as “three blendable trios perfectly paired to color, contour, and line your eyes.” Sort of handy if you’re not quite sure how to pair your shades yet.
MAC Angel Lipstick ($14.00) is a softened, pale rosy pink that’s not quite “milky pink,” but it comes close. It has a very creamy look with a light, glossy sheen but no shimmer or frostiness whatsoever. It gives lips a semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, but those with more pigmented lips may find their lips still look quite red underneath this pink. On my lips, it’s a pretty pink that enhances my natural lip color and doesn’t look too pale. The lipstick is vanilla scented and comes in classic black packaging and a fairly affordable price tag of just $14.
