Those of you who have been reading this blog for a number of years know that PeaceBang LOVES LOVES LOVES Color Girl Outlast All Day lipstick in blush pearl — a perfect neutral that (*sob*) is now off the market.
While I did hoard the product, I am getting down to my last supplies. It is with great relief that I can tell you that I FOUND SOMETHING I LIKE ALMOST AS MUCH. No, it’s not as absolutely perfect as the Outlast All Day all-time favorite, but it’ll do, Pig, it’ll do.*
Ladies, PeaceBang is very happy to promote Revlon’s new ColorStay Ultimate Lipcolor.
This formula is a little tricky to apply because it’s a lot more liquidy than other formulas that I like. However, the result is a lighter feel on the lips and also less drying.
This stuff comes in 20 really pretty colors (some of those all-day lippies come in really garish hues! I think it’s hard to formulate a pretty color that doesn’t rub right off). At about $10, it won’t break your bank (and CVS is having a buy one-get one free sale now!).
I purchased Best Bubble for a neutral (similar to Blush Pearl Outlast All Day) and Grand Garnet for a more dramatic red, which I just LOVE for a bright pop of color. As I said, the formula is more sheer, so I avoid the Joan Crawford look even with the brighter red. I am just way too old for a waxy, heavy red mouth, kids, and any red with a bluish tint to it makes me look like the Walking Dead. This Garnet is super pretty, but there are lots of other shades to chose from, including some pretty lilac tones (another great way to assure that I look like a zombie, but you might look stunning in it!).
The product lasted all day and came off easily with a gob of Vaseline and a tissue.
*Remember that line from the movie “Babe?” Remember how cute that movie was? The little singing mice at the start of every scene? “BAH, RAM, EWE.” I think it’s time to see “Babe” again.
