I’ve additionally tried 3 Voile Rose (a bit mild, however I could make it work) and 5 Popeline Mimosa (a bit too darkish). I nonetheless assume Shade 4 is the very best for me though I don’t really want the inexperienced and purple tones to paint right.

The Chanel Longwear Lip Pencils lastly got here again in inventory! The shades Rose Naturel + Nude Brun are the very best ones for my part for neutrals.

I’m normally not a fan of liquid lips/matte lip formulation, however this one from Lisa Eldridge has probably the most comfy liquid lip texture that I’ve ever tried. It has a pleasant dry down that doesn’t shrink or dry out the lips. Colours are very flattering and lasting energy is spectacular.
