Marcelle Cleopatra Rouge Xpression Lipstick swatches

The product: Marcelle Rouge Xpression lipstick in Cleopatra

Last year, I was all about Marcelle Paris Rose, but… I think this year’s colour is going to be Cleopatra. I’m kind of crazy about this bright, blue-based fuchsia, so I thought I’d update the blog’s swatch photos of it — the old ones make me want to hang my head in shame, and I figured it was the least I could do for such a gorgeous product.

One of the things I love about the Rouge Xpression formula (aside from the fact that it comes in some seriously gorgeous creme-finish shades) is that it’s paraben-free, silicone-free, and scent-free. Basically, that translates into a comfortable lipstick that isn’t going to give you scent-headaches or make you break out if you wear it as a blush (something that Cleopatra is particularly brilliant for), which is just a little bit north of awesome.

    This is really pretty on you! I like bright fuchsias. Even if they can be blue-based, they are actually bright enough to flatter those with a warm undertone (like me)!

    You take amazing pictures, I like your settings. About the lipstick, not sure whether that's my thing, it looks kinda drying?

    Oh, but this is gorgeous! It's the perfect shade of fuchsia. I'm dying to try Paris Rose, but I just have to get off my lazy butt and take some pictures first.

    How is this silicone free if it has Propyl Dimethyl Siloxy Silicate?
