Julie Hewett Simone Sheer Lipstick ($20.00) is a soft, lightly frosted shade of pinky-coral. This is a shade that’s definitely a YMMV (your mileage may vary) kind of shade, because even though it looks and swatches with a coral tint, on my lips, it turns rather pink. When applied, Simone brightens up my lips to a soft, petal pink shade with decent coverage, even though it’s supposed to be a sheer shade. I liked the way it turned out, but the way it looks on your lips may be different since we all have different pigmentation, and this one definitely pulled pink on me! The formula itself is semi-sheer, creamy enough to apply with ease, and a slight glossy sheen (almost a frost sheen, in my eyes). I get a good four or so hours of wear with the sheer lipsticks in Julie Hewett’s line.
