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?
I'll make up for it tomorrow.
