Haven’t we all rutted around in our makeup bags from time to time and wished for that one special lipstick? That one lipstick both professional enough to wear to the office (“Hey, new girl, have you filled out those TPS reports?”), and dynamic enough to dazzle a first date? A lipstick so resourceful, so transcendent, that it possessed the power to turn you into a one-lipstick girl?
If there ever were such a shade, it would be Vintage. The new $30 Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick in Vintage.
One of four new winter neutrals in the long-wearing Femme Rouge Velvet Cream Lipstick line, creamy, rosy pink Vintage feels delightfully indulgent for such a lightweight lippie, like adding full-fat cream to your morning coffee (whatevs, you’ll just run it off later!).
Loaded with Vitamin E and antioxidants to keep lips in tip-top shape, Vintage is surprisingly long-wearing and water resistant, lasting on my lips from 4-5 hours.
I think it’s a great natural shade for casual date nights — just add liner and a cream blush — and for dressier looks, too.
Mmm, I’m picturing it with chocolaty smokey eyes…
But that could be the Halloween candy talking.
PRICE: $30 for one lipstick bullet with a refillable case, and $24 per refill
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Barneys stores, Space NK, Bergdorf Goodman, Sephora and Sephora.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A (if it were $20, I’d give it an A+)
Oh, hai! It’s officially the holiday season.
Is it just me, or does it seem like time starts to speed up around this time of year? I feel like I take a deep breath, exhale and everyone’s cheering, “Happy Holidays!” Then I blink and it’s 2013.
El Hub and I have been trying to get our dining room in order in time to host Thanksgiving for our families, but I dunno… It’s still possible. Right now we’re working on painting the room. After that we’ll get some furniture (like a table and a couple chairs would be nice, haha).
Tabs is keeping his paws crossed, because you know him — he’s a ho for turkey and extra attention.
Have you done any planning for the holidays yet? Holla if you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
