If you follow me on twitter you know that this lipstick is pretty much all I have been talking about this evening. Which lipstick, you ask? Oh, just a little thing that looks like this:
Lancome released this little gem of a <limited edition> lipstick in their Spring 2012 collection. Isn’t she darling? I guess this is probably my most favorite lipstick packaging EVER.
But, it’s what’s on the side that counts the most, right? Her name is Cotton Candy (according to the Lancome website, but my box calls her Soft Marshmallow??) and she is of the Gourmand Color Bare Lips Sensation descent. That’s a mouthful so let me break it down for you like this: it’s a glossy/sheer lipstick that feels moisturizing on the lips.
And why wouldn’t it feel moisturizing? Check out two ingredients that caught my eye (thanks to Larie from Eye Heart It for prompting me look at the ingredients list)!
*Side note for the grammar police- I realize I switched between subjective and objective pronouns in this post, but just go with it
Not my traditional swatch format, but the left is Lancome Cotton Candy and the right is MAC Flamingo, just for comparison sake. The Lancome lipstick is definitely more pink and more glossy.
And here she is on this lips! A stunning shade and formula. I can’t vouch for wear time but I can say this is one of the more silky lipstick hybrids I have used. It actually feels moisturizing, as opposed to just feeling glossy.
Do you *need* this? Let me put it to you this way, does a dog need a bone? OF COURSE! It’s the single item from all of the spring collections I have seen that is positively radiant in every way and worthy of splurging on. It’s available now from Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, and Lancome’s website.
