The Cutest Lipsticks Around | Into The Gloss

Oh God, one other French magnificence product? I encourage of you, let me make my case.

Think about wanting to use any little bit of pigment under your masks earlier than going out anyplace lately—for me not less than, Yolaine’s La Mousse de Rouge is the motivation for extending the trouble. Camille Yolaine, Yolaine’s founder, advised me that the fluffy, light-as-air lipsticks have been impressed by the delicate texture of mousse au chocolat. You could have about 60 seconds to present the cloud-like system your individual quantity of smudging for a superbly messy look. (I like making use of the lipstick with a lip brush, after which firing off a couple of purpseful smacks so it seems to be simply south of neat.) Then, it dries to a cushty powder end that doesn’t really feel, effectively, dry. Matte, however not stiff. And completely smudge-proof.

However the lipstick’s output is only one a part of the story—can we pause for a second to debate the packaging? Taking cues from paint tubes, they’re as fairly in a bag because the system inside. The identical goes for the model’s lip scrub and balm. Of their toile-wrapped metallic oval instances which are virtually sweet tin-like, these dainty little lip enhances are absurdly cute. They’re the type of factor you need to whip out of your bag and conspicuously apply simply to present it off.

Again to La Mousse de Rouge, I’m a fan of the shade Daphne, which Yolaine describes as a “nude purple.” I believe it’s a purple for wimps like me, who’re intrigued by the concept of a wealthy purple, however are too intimidated to drag the set off. It’s extra like a watermelon, simply bitten type of hue. Like plenty of lip colours lately, it’s additionally formulated to work on cheeks, though I haven’t tried that but. Part of me worries that I’ll undergo the tube too quick if I take advantage of it each methods. For now, I’m simply making an attempt to savor this one small tube of pleasure for so long as I can.
