But I did...
So, in my previous post I was slightly reserved about the latest lipstick of Etude House. I liked some elements of the lipstick, except the opacity and the colour.
You can imagine I was pretty annoyed that I had ordered another one of these lipsticks. These lipsticks were not really Me.
Guess what, I would like to nuance my opinion with another shade I received from the Lucid Darling collection. The no. 9 in Romantic Rose is such a bubbly and fun pink!
When I reluctantly opened my lipstick I first was shocked by the pinkness of the lipstick. Uhohhh, it looked so unlike I would normally wear.
However, the moment I tried on my new pink lipstick, I found it looking 'not too bad' in the mirror.
I upped the rest of my makeup, making my skin more flawless (and made up) than usual, and added some tiny loose fake lashes.
I also went into my wardrobe and dressed up in my minty green gingham blouse, wore my baby pink jacket and a girly skirt...
My normal (neutrally boring) look changed into something dipped into candyfloss...
I stepped outside my confort box, and enjoyed it tremendously.
I even dared to post a mouth-swatch...that is because I actually smiled so happily with this lippy...
It looks like a cool and bright pink in the tube and on my mouth. However....it has those tiny, warm gold shimmers inside (NOT glitters...I despise big glitters in lip-products) which makes it wearable for warmer skintones too. For a high-density and long wearing lipstick they are truly smooth and glossy.
I loved how the change of a lipstick made me change my whole total look. It would absolutely be too high-maintainance to wear this dolly-girl look daily, but it is fabulous for days when I want to up it a bit!
So, no regrets for buying the second LucidDarling lipstick...I think I want the brick red colour (Sunny Red 2) too.
This one arrived with a belated Gmarket order, so I paid ￦9,000 or $8.33 (excluding shipping) for these (here). They are available on ebay too (here) for $11,67 (including shipping).
