message in a bottle

My favourite summer lipstick of all time would have to be the Lancome Color Fever lipstick in 302 SOS Pink:

The packaging is simple and feminine - metallic with translucent pink sides. The tube has a nice weight to it without feeling cheap.

Swatched:

Colour is a bright pink that is neither cool nor warm so I think it complements most skintones.

The lipstick has a cream finish that is quite pigmented. Texture wise it isn't as creamy as the MAC Cremesheens but the intensity of the colour makes up for that, as Cremesheens do tend to be a bit sheer.

Here's one of my past looks (from this post) with SOS Pink. I usually wear it the same way, paired with simple eye makeup since the pink is quite bright.

So do you have a favourite summer lip colour? Feel free to share! :)

ack you're a blast of pretty! I know I saw it already, but still. I have trouble with pinks.. actually most lip colors other than natural nudes bc I'm not used to drawing attention to my lips.
the nice flush in your cheeks is also very becoming

the packaging sorta reminds me of the maybelline color sensational ones :)
but the pink looks gorgeous on you! so flattering
my fav lippie for summer is annabelle's le gloss stick in naughty nectar. it provides enough colour yet its moisturizing

Catherine said...

Very pretty! I think LM Peach Sorbet has been my favorite lipstick of this summer. I would wear Chanel Egerie more if the formula agreed with my lips better though...

I can see why it's your fave. It's gorgeous on you! =D Hmm...I've been reaching for my MAC "My Favorite Pink" lipgloss a lot so I guess that's my fave.

how fun! love the shade. i've been liking patissiere by MAC (however you spell that haha) or viva glam cyndi, though i feel like it might be a little too on the reddish side of coral.

This is such a pretty colour! I'm going to have to look for it next time I'm at SHoppers!

Blu3 I LOVE the last picture of you. You look gorgeous!! More fotd please ^_^

I remember you raving about this lipstick and it looks fab on you. I just wished I invested on a more wearable lancome shade as you! Mine has been left sitting in my draws for a long time now -_-;;;
