The Spring Season: Warmer Pinks Lipstick Wrap-up

I’m actually surprised by the volume of warmer-toned pinks featured in the Spring Season. I always thought finding the right warm pink was difficult, but perhaps not!

Similarities…

  • #1 (Benefit Candy Store) is a more pigmented, slightly more coral version of #3 (Chanel Exquise).
  • #8 (Guerlain Gemma) is a stunning shade, and the closest dupe I’ve encountered thus far is #10 (Korres #22)–Gemma is brighter and pinker, but Korres #22 has the cool golden sheen of Gemma that makes it so unique.
  • #11 (Lancome Voile de Rose) made a big splash amongst readers, and though we have no exact dupe, #9 (Korres #13) and #15 (Shiseido PK 327) come close.
  • #7 (Guerlain Gabrielle) seems like a slightly more coral version of #17 (Urban Decay Peroxide).
  • #5 (Cle de Peau #106) is a brighter, more intense version of #16 (Urban Decay Naked).

      The Spring Season: Bobbi Brown Rose Garden Creamy Lip Color

      Bobbi Brown Rose Garden Creamy lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an easy, everyday shade that goes on like a sheer, rosy shimmer. It just enhances the tint of your natural lip color while adding a glossy sheen and shimmer. Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Lip Color is incredibly moisturizing and feels really soft and creamy on lips. Of course, this is for my friends who love themselves a sheer, subtle lipstick… not the ultra pigmented.

      Is this the right sheer lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

      The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.
