I had to repost this because I forgot a picture of me actually wearing it – agh! As you can see, it’s too much fun and a really gorgeous color. And here’s a rather silly picture of me wearing it.
When I want to tone it down, I use a balm underneath it and that helps it “spread” more. You can really get as much or little as you want out of this – it’s so buildable and gliding.
I used to wear Aveda lipstick. Now Aveda has some pretty amazing products and to measure up with an Aveda products is a pretty tall order. I thought when I was wearing Aveda lipstick that I was wearing the best.
That all changed when I slipped on my first Sonia Kashuk lipstick – the color was nude. It was sort of pale chocolate. It actually didn’t flatter my skin, but the way it felt! Much less drying than my Aveda lipstick.
I like her new formula – the Luxe Lipcolor, even better. The ones in the black containers. It’s creamy, it’s very light but buildable, it doesn’t feel like you have a lot of lipstick on when you wear it, but your lips have a comfortable cushy feel to them.
My standard for lipsticks and glosses and balms: squishy cushiness. Haha! It’s a penned term. OK, maybe just cushiness. Your lips shouldn’t stick together when you press them together, they should be able to glide, they should have a slightly cushy feel, they should feel hydrated.
Here is a quote from her website to give you even more reasons to love Sonia Kashuk Luxe Lipcolor:
“The paraben and fragrance-free formula contains Brown Seaweed Extract, a marine botanical rich in fatty acids that preserves skins elasticity, Ceramide 2 and Palmitoyl Peptide to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles…”
I am unfortunate enough to own only one of these lipsticks: pink punch. But what a color it is! Nate loves it. 🙂 (You look so cute!)
Nate doesn’t notice when my lips don’t match my sweater. What a sweet guy. He just says, “you are so pretty!”
Oh for $9.99 I think I’ll get more.
