The new matte lip colors from Kevyn Aucoin are to die for…
I only have one complaint.
More colors please!
The cozy selection offers a color (or two) for every skin tone. But I was looking for a nude. And alas, there are no such colors for my warm skin tone (the nudes pull really pink on me). There is an amazing orange, that I (shockingly) passed on. Instead, I got the cool purple color, called Persistence:
The color goes on opaque and creamy, and sort of sets to a demi matte. The wear is noteworthy… you really have to scrub to get the color completely off. It ‘stains’ a bit under the finish, which I imagine is to allow you to eat, drink, and air kiss your way into oblivion… without having to reapply.
Kevyn Aucoin The Matte Lip Color is sold at Space NK.
