But I am not up to showing
I really had a craving to buy something new from the Burberry Spring range. Perhaps because I really need this winter to be over and hoping I can coach spring into the weather when I wear it, or delude my mind into happiness when wearing brighter colours.
Actually, I wanted to go for the Hydrangea Pink blush first, but I need to see it swatched first. Holland is having the Spring '13 colours online (here), but the brick-n-mortar shops haven't been stocked yet.
Lipgloss-wise, I picked a colour I wouldn't normally go for:
Burberry calls this one a Coral, although I wouldn't call it a real coral colour. I think it's a bit goldfish with a slight dusting of gold shell, making it still rather tropical:
I especially went for this one as it looked really unique and plumping in the various swatches I've seen online (example 1, 2). I figured that the warmer glow and golden particles can be a excellent way to warm up and give dimension to my cooler, purplish lipsticks.
The Collistar lipstick actually was a GWP but I really like it a lot.
|Italian creativity with the lipstick? I'm going to wear it frequently now ;)|
I consider it equal to EB Midnight Bloom in pigmentation, perhaps a bit more matte.
|swatches & goosebumps: "spring, where are you?"|
Top line (instead of bottom line) is that the lipgloss totally lives up to my expectation. I actually like the fraganced luxurity of it, the balmy feel, and the idea that it is pigmented on it's own but extra-dimensional on another lipstick. Also, that is a fab GWP, the Collistar Scarletto lipstick...yum.
☼ Now some sunny orangy rays and a warmer temperature to match the lipgloss ☼
