I'm digging the new ads for Maybelline's Color Sensational Pearls Lipstick. I'm thinking of picking up a few tubes to try out, but thought I could re-create the look with two of my favorites products. One's an oldie: Stila High Shine Lipcolor in Diane. The other's a newbie: Korres' Lip Butter Glaze in Pomegranate.
Both formulas are very moisturizing (a neccessity in this butt-freezing Bay Area weather) and both impart *just* the right touch of color to be be equally useful in daytime and nighttime scenarios.
I started my blending experiment by dabbing Diane on my whole lip -- not necessarily being neat about it, either. One thing I love about pearly, glossy color is that it can be applied haphazardly and it actually looks better that way. Then I applied a dot of the Lip Butter Glaze in the middle of my lower lip.
Then smeared the colors together with my fingertips. And voila! Pinky, pearly color. I'll compare the wear-time of this combo with a tube of Maybelline's Color Sensational Pearls, and will holla back!
