Those that know me ~know pink lipstick is my prefer go to shade and this color is AWESOME~

BEFORE

The lipstick.
I purchased mine at a MAC counter and it retails for $14.
They describe it as "Features(ing) a high lustre finish and cool blue-pink shade."
I love the texture ~Not greasy at all. I find there is no taste and a itty bit of a vanilla smell.
I really LOVE LOVE it's a blue based pink but it's light and not over powering in pigment.Best pink I've found to date and I know my pinks!

AFTER




Thanks so much for posting mumsy! I hope we can see more of you around these parts. Also thank you for peer pressuring me into buying my own because it really is such a great cause.
Make sure to check out my mom's Etsy and Blog.
Show her the love. I will forward all comments on to her! She is homebound with my recovering Dad who had major surgery.

Also let me say you can actually play this lipstick up REALLY easily. Slap a gloss over it and you are instant mod. Put a orange gloss over it and it makes the most amazing peach summer shade. Or put on a few coats and lots of black eyeliner for a very hot and very now look.

I love it! Lady Gaga was on some TV show promoting this and she said she liked it because if you put on one coat, it's one color, but if you put on more it's like a totally different color. I have no idea if she was just talking out of her butt but maybe she was on to something!
