Meet Paris Rose, the love of my life

Friday, March 4, 2011

Paris Rose is one of the gorgeous new Marcelle Rouge Xpression lipsticks, and my favourite of all nine! It’s romantic, cheery, whimsical… I just love it.

While this isn’t advertised as a semi-matte, I’d actually call it one! It feels like a true cream finish, though (aka is more comfortable than any other semi-matte or matte-finish that I’ve tried), which I’m thrilled about.

These swatches are applied straight from the tube – and very quickly, at that – on lips covered with a sheer layer of foundation. (My lips are naturally quite pigmented and they were a bit irritated the day I took these photos, so I wanted to let a more true swatch show through!) Usually, though, I simply pat on a touch of this with clean fingers for that perfect “whisper of colour”.

A quick P.S. – I’m going to try to post some behind-the-scenes images with Dior and Natalie Portman later today, but we’ll see how I’m feeling. On the off-chance that we won’t talk again until tomorrow, have a lovely Friday night my lovelies & I will have that post ready for Monday! xx

    I really doubt this would work on me, but it looks unbelievable on you. Almost like your lips are glowing? xD In any case, it's super pretty!

  9. Let me know what you think of it! ;)

  10. Aww, thank you! Have you picked up a tube yet?

  11. [...] Alright, so you take out the top layer, and all of the sudden – hello, blush! Of the ten well-sized pans hidden in the bottom of this palette, three are matte (top middle*, and the bottom two on the right), six are shimmers, and one is a shimmery bronzer. *Which I adore, btw. Worn here! [...]

  12. This is my all-time favourite lipstick! Marcelle's lipsticks do get into the cracks of my lips but it's forgivable because it's such a lovely colour!
