We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I had wanted Apoline sooo badly; until I noticed that it looked almost spot on like my tube of MAC Mehr, of which is an 88% dupe. All I need do is add a touch of gloss in a similar shade and BAM!

I will try that. I LOVE Mac mehr. When I Do not Know what Lipstick to wear or if I am in a hurry I always take Mac mehr because it Looks Perfect no matter what Else you wear.

I swatched Apoline recently and found that it looks a lot paler and pinker on me than here. I loved it and would love to get it , but my budget is kind of tight at the moment and this would be way out of my lipstick comfort zone.

(for better or worse, neither Tom Ford nor Make Up Forever are available here and that UD lipstick never worked for me. My poor budget :/ )
