The Verdict: “Something about this lipstick reminds me of the weighty tubes I used to steal off my grandma’s vanity to play dress up, but that sense of nostalgia also calls to mind quality. The texture is thick and creamy, too — kind of like the old Fashion Fair formulas the matriarchs in my family would use.
“The color is very similar to my skin tone with just a slight pink undertone. However, you definitely need a dark brown lip liner to give the mouth a little definition with this shade, because the match is so close that it can feel a little cadaver-esque. I will say: The formula doesn’t really have any staying power. It comes off on pretty much everything. So, this is one of those look-cute lipsticks that you wear to an office meeting, not the summer BBQ where you’ll be eating burnt hot dogs.” — Jessica Cruel, Deputy Beauty Director
