Seasonal favourites: theNotice’s pink lip of the moment

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I’m not even- I can’t even- THERE ARE NO WORDS.

I promised an eye look with theĀ gorgeousĀ melon and teal shades from this season’s FaceFront collection (which is going up tomorrow), and I wanted to pick out a lip to go with it. The products I eventually went with are exactly up my alley (not to mention, completely on-trend for the season)… which is why I’m going to lay myself at your feet and beg forgiveness.

Why? Well, because

a) They’re amazing, and wear comfortably together for hours,

b) They’re both by Canadian brands, and

c) One of them has been discontinued.

Please don’t hate me? I’m sure I’m sure there’s a dupe out there somewhere. I mean, I’ve yet to find it (even after so very much hunting), but there has to be one!

There has to be.

… Right?

Products used

  • Marcelle Rouge Vitality lipstick in 510 Raspberry Pink – discontinued, but pictured and swatched behind the cut.
  • Annabelle Volumelip gloss in Coralicious – more swatches here.

Pictured with a few other Marcelle Rouge Vitality 500′s… most of which have been discontinued at this point. (I’m sorry; I’m sorry! This photo is rather old.) Raspberry Pink is second from the left.

    I hate when they discontinue gorgeous shades. I mean never got the rational behind it.

  5. *sigh* Sales figures, I guess? I was incredibly sad to see this one go, though; such a gorgeous shade (and that creme finish, oh!)

  6. *blushes* Thank you, lovely!

  7. as;fghafsdjk I know, right? I'm absolutely head over heels for it.

    Wowie zowie, Raspberry Pink looks so much darker on my lips than yours. I think you're convincing me to go get Coralicious, though. :P I bought Raspberry Pink in March — was it discontinued recently?

  10. Oooh, pretty :D At least, if it's discontinued, we're at equal opportunity world-wide, right? Haha. Sorry. I'm especially cynical on Monday mornings. It's a lovely look, though – love that dusty pink shade.

    So pretty! We must find a dupe!

  13. Lol!! Coralicious is pretty, but SO sheer – don't tear the world apart looking for it ;)

    As for Raspberry Pink? It's a lot darker when I apply it straight from the tube; my favourite way to wear it (and the way it's worn here) is by blotting it down to a stain : ) I'll double-check on the discontinued thing (erm, if I can manage to remember; I have the attention span of a five year old on candy) – it would be awesome to find out that this is still permanent.

  14. Gah! I hope so!

  15. Lol! I guess that's one way to look at it :p It's such a beautiful shade, though!

  16. Indeed! *peels eyes wide and searches*

  17. It's the perfect pink! And suits you well honey =)

  18. Aww, thanks Nina!
