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.
