Yesterday I posted about Banila Co.'s new Summer 2010 line. The line, divided in a leopard printed version and a nautical theme version, has already been a hit for me considering the eyeshadow palette in Africa.
Well, I bought something for the cute pink leopard line, so how could I not buy something of the nautical line? He he, ofcourse I did.
I was attracted to the colour portrayed in the online promotional picture of the lipstick. It looks like a wonderfully peachy colour.
The theme of this year that Banila Co. picked is Bon Voyage Africa. Weirdly enough, they named their lipstick Tequilla Sunrise.
Not that people in Africa do not drink any Tequilla Sunrises, but it has more of a Mexican or Latin-American connotation to me.
The tube itself is as wonderfully in the red, blue and white stripes as the box. The colours are really refreshingly nautical.
The colour of the lipstick is a peachy nude and quite similar as the colour portrayed in the promotion picture.
This is a colour that is often a favourite with a lot of beauty bloggers who opt for a natural/nude mouth. The peach in it makes it alive (instead of the liver-toned mouth that some nudish lipstick can have).
Personally, it is a bit lighter than my natural liptone at this moment. So on me it looks like a kind of lipstick that is more pale-peachy nude than it looks on the swatch. The swatch is accurate, though! It is only that my liptone is quite rosy.
Texture-wise, it is quite moisturizing, but not as moisturizing as the Shiseido Maquillage lipsticks (but they are exceptionally moisture-bombs I ♥). This lipstick is more moisturizing than, for instance, MAC lipsticks and that makes it a confortable wear.
I think that the pigmentation is medium. It covered all of my rosiness in my mouth. It is not exactly sheer, neither very opaque. Medium, indeed.
I have bought this lipstick on gmarket, item no. 189068595, for 13.000 won or $ 10.97 (here). There are three more shades of this line, each in a natural-toned hue.
