5 Lovely Lilac & Lavender Eyeshadows

5 Lovely Lilac & Lavender Eyeshadows

Purple can be a hard color to nail, and even lighter variations of purple can be tough. For those who love the idea of purple but haven’t found a good way to wear it yet, consider a lighter shade, which can be easier to work with.

  2. Inglot #440
  3. MAC Digit

NYX Stella Lipstick

NYX Stella Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a creamy medium pink with yellow undertones. The finish has a natural sheen to it that gives it a nice luminosity, and the color coverage is mostly opaque. MAC Joie-de-Vivre is slightly yellower. MAC Hot Gossip is darker.

Like Haute Melon, there was a fair amount of slip in the creamy consistency of this particular shade that made it slide around during application. It was also easy to move around the applied product and get lines of color. Again, this shade didn’t wear for long, about three hours, when I typically average four hours of wear on a regular lipstick (not one touted as long-wearing). Mine didn’t have any scent, but other NYX lipsticks I’ve tried have almost been vanilla scented. I’ve had this for some time before opening it, though, so it’s possible the scent faded away over time (a lot of my budget-friendly lipsticks lose their scent very quickly).
