Seasonal favourites: theNotice’s pink lip of the moment

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

I promised an eye look with the gorgeous 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.

    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?

    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.
