As she was tumbling, in what seemed to be an endless journey downward, she imagined that she would land in some lurid under-city catacomb of sorts- the likes of Fritz Lang's Metropolis.
She clenched her fists close to her chest and continued her descent to where she knew not.

She continued falling for what seemed to be an eternity, and her watch began spinning backwards. Eventually the dark gave way to light, and soon she could see a beautiful sight, but was somewhat disoriented because things appeared upside down as she tumbled toward an oculus. It was filled with clouds, putti, a peacock, and people peering toward her as she was falling at great rates of speed toward them.

Once she landed, she was greeted by a lovely bunny who simultaneously (and magically) spoke in two languages. The bunny exclaimed,
"Welcome, we have been expecting you! Let us help you get up."
"Добро пожаловать, мы ждали вас! Позвольте нам помочь вам встать."

The bunny then indicated that they, in the magical land of Rouge Bunny Rouge, were very well aware that the girl had dreaming about the perfect sheer lipstick, and realized that they must make a preemptive move to prevent her from wandering the earth forever in search of the perfect sheer lipstick. It was then that they decided to make her fall down the rabbit hole to end her quest once and for all.

Murmurings is described as, "Wet effect, sheer, cool damson - Like having just eaten a bowl of cherries."
The girl, without the aid of a mirror, placed the lipstick on her lips- and then immediately found herself walking back where she came from before she fell down the Rouge Bunny Rouge rabbit hole. She looked in her hand to see that she was clutching Murmurings as though her very survival was dependent on it. After her bewilderment subsided, she exclaimed "I didn't get to say thank you or goodbye to the Bunny!" Murmurings then responded, "You did so by selecting me, and worry not- you are always welcome in our magical land-- all you have to do is think about it and you will be transported."
Their finesse is captured and cradled here for you in a sensuously sheer lipstick which acts with the power of a gloss. Soft diaphanous colours hover on your lips so finely that they enhance and refine your naturalness into a graceful glamour. You’ll whisper sexy enchantments with full, moist and brilliantly shiny lips, but you’ll never be overdone. Once you experience the beguilement you’ll create with this new subtlety, you will never go back to having to shout. With such water-honeyed murmurings, you’ll leave them longing for just one more glimpse of you…
Overall assessment: Pure unmitigated magic. Simply best in class! It is even more magical than the aforementioned story suggests. Murmurings is absolute unadulterated perfection. I suspect that you need it in your life as much as I do. It is a timeless classic that is modern, luxurious, whimsical, and utterly stunning!
