Day 4 - Forever Yours

Confession - I think I cheated on my week long challenge today. I did my eye makeup just a touch bit darker than I intended and I just don't feel right rocking a smoky eye with a bold lip, well I don't feel right doing it for a day at the office. So to balance it out, I went with a lovely mauve-berry shade:

Edward Bess' Forever Yours Ultra Slick Lipstick:

It looks a bit dark in the tube but on my lips it almost registers as a nude, okay a nude with mauve tones.

And here it is on my arm (NC 42 for reference):

I love Edward Bess' lipsticks, I just wished it was easier to buy. I was lucky to buy this in person last time I was at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC, where I had the pleasure of getting my makeup done by Mr. Bess as a birthday treat, and now my only option is to buy this online or as a phone order via Neiman Marcus (Beverly Hills) or BG.

Maybe it is a good thing that EB cosmetics aren't easily available. Well it is for my bank account!

This lipstick has a great amount of slip and even though that this line of lipsticks are Ultra Slick, it's anything but that. It's got a great amount of pigment and it has a pretty good wear time, well depending on how many liquids you drink between applications. I also, love the fig scent.

So is this a darker nude shade? Did I cheat?

Technically, no but it does look like a darker nude shade that I would normally wear. Okay, a minor fail.

I'll make up for it tomorrow.

Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick - $32


  1. This is pretty! I think it's a lively darker nude--- so not cheating :D Plus, There's time to make up for it with a very dramatic lip to end the week!

    I have real issues with stepping out of my nude comfort zone even with colors like pretty pinks so I really should be doing a weekly challenge like this!

  2. I love Forever Yours! So cool to see how different it looks on you. Gorgeous!

  3. Thanks ladies!

    Dovey, start slowly - don't go full blown neon orange just yet! hahaha

    I bet this looks just as effortless and gorgeous on you, too! What perfume do you pair with this?
