Today I thought I'd show you a lipstick that I got in the USA when I was on holiday earlier this year. I love scouring the shops there to find things that you can't get over here and this didn't disappoint. This lipstick is one of my favourites at the moment as it is a beautiful Autumnal brownish/pink colour that goes with the season and all my Autumn coloured clothes, it's called Dusky Rose.
Nuance by Salma Hayek
I hadn't heard of the Nuance brand before, sadly we don't have it here in the UK but this lipstick is by the actress Salma Hayek and having done a bit of research when I got home I can tell you that she has created a range of cosmetics exclusively for CVS Pharmacy. I only bought the lipstick but to be fair I could have quite happily tried her entire range, there's so much to choose from and skin care too. I love the packaging (I'm a self-confessed packaging magpie, ooh pretty, must have it, that's me). But seriously, for what I guess could be considered a budget range (I think the lipstick was under $10) I think it looks quite fancy and the lipstick itself has a nice feel to it and doesn't come off after the first five minutes which is a plus for me, if you've read any of my other lippy reviews you'll know that my bugbear is those lipsticks that disappear off your face after the first cup of tea and you're reapplying all day long - tiresome. I've recently gone back to using a lip brush (thank you Real Techniques) and you can get a really gorgeous finish with this lipstick (needs blotting though, on me anyway). I'm also of an age where those little lines are starting to appear round my mouth, maybe I scowl a lot (early forties - pah!) so I am conscious of wearing lipsticks that don't "bleed" into the lines and I am happy to say that this one is a delight to wear the lipstick stays on the lips and doesn't travel up or down your face. Thank you Salma.
I'd be really interested to hear if anyone has tried anything else in the Salma Hayek range? I'll definitely be trying more of her cosmetics next time I'm in the US.
