Maybeline The Jewels lipstick in Fuchsia Crystal (left) and Refined Wine (right).
Basically the story is this: Camille and I were at the mall, walking around, when something flashy caught our eye-- one other than a big sale sign. So, who can resist lipstick at 50% off? Not me, that's for sure. Anyway, we ended up taking these home, even after promising to steer clear from make-up after that last big Target haul we had shipped (which landed us several tubes of lipstick, some of which remain unopened). Whatever, girls are girls and one cannot have too many lip colors.
What I love about this lipstick is that it has the perfect consistency for our tropical weather. This does not melt as easily as NYX or Revlon lippies. What I do not like about this particular Mayeline line is that it has a strong perfume smell that sticks for a while. Eek. PHP 199 (50% off) for a tube is really a great bargain, though.
Fuchsia Crystal is the pinker lipstick on the left while Refined Wine is the deeper darker red on the right. Perfect as I've been looking for lip color similar to this, something with a deep shade.
Fuchsia Crystal on my sister's lips.
Refined Wine on mine, on two separate occasions.
Love it? Leave it? Me, I'm definitely going to be wearing this color for a while.
