Just as I finished my quest for the perfect red lipstick, the need for an equally perfect coral tinted one emerged. I searched all over, stumbled upon YSL Rouge Volupte but sadly that little gem will have to wait due to its pricy-ness.
I was finally able to fulfil my ubiqutuous desire for a coral lipstick after I purchased this little baby. I actually found it in the last place on earth I’d ever consider looking for make-up in. lt never occured to me that a pharmacy, out of all specialized stores, would sell such beauty treasures. The lipstick alone didn’t cause this thrill; I actually fell in love with its simple package as well. No generic nylon bags or ordinary lipstick boxes, just this crisp white piece of paper. If you’ve read my post about Klekko goodies, you’d know just how much I appreciate a beautifully packaged item, especially if it’s wrapped in recyclable material. The fact that this lipstick is barely 4cm big (hence its name “Nano”) and can fit in any type of purse and/or pocket, makes the whole thing that much more appealing. I was really surprised at how smooth and creamy its texture was when I first applied it. It’s medium pigmented – not too bright, yet not too faint in color so it’s very suitable for every day. Now I cannot wait to get a bit of tan and wear this fun shade all summer long!
