Purchased by me (Affiliate links)I will make every effort not to descend into some Freudian lipstick porn paradigm from which there is no return, but it might be somewhat unavoidable since this is one sexy beast. There is a certain satisfying heft to the beautifully articulated (and rather masculine) lipstick bullet. Furthermore, this luxe tube, with its chiseled squared off features, is so decadent in feel that even snapping the lid back on produces what can only be described as a deeply visceral and satisfying click that one might liken to the unmistakable thud produced when closing the door of an über expensive European luxury car.
Nude Vanilla: A pale nude peachy pink.
Blush Nude: A warm nude pink.
Pink Dusk: A warm mid-tone rose pink that is darker than Blush Nude and lighter than Indian Rose.
Indian Rose: A deep warm rose with a touch of mauve. It's a darker version of Pink Dusk.
Casablanca: A deep rose with mauve undertones.
Bruised Plum: A deep red plum that leans more pink than Black Orchid. It's almost scarlet in hue.
Black Orchid: A deep dark blackened plum.
It should come as no surprise that at the top of my lust-list you will find the highly coveted Neiman Marcus Limited Edition 12 Lipstick Set that comes in a gorgeous box (there is no price savings on the lipsticks themselves, but the gorgeous mahogany box is free).
I wish that I could make myself stop studying it online, but I am utterly transfixed by this set! This is the stuff that lipstick dreams are made of, seriously! Of course this set includes 5 colors that I already own, but thankfully they are colors that I use regularly and they are easy to wear. Just processing the idea at this point, but I am super tempted!
Overall assessment: I'm obsessed, what can I tell you?! I have already made a significant dent in Nude Vanilla, and I can promise you that I will repurchase that one in no time-- unless I cave and buy the 12 piece set (which thankfully includes Nude Vanilla)!! I love love love love love these lipsticks-- and as you well know, I have always been more of a lip gloss than a lipstick kind of girl-- so for me to make this kind of declaration is huge. All of my lip glosses are now quite dusty and lonely.
$49.00 each. Available from Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's & Bergdorf Goodman. $588.00 for the Neiman Marcus Limited Edition 12 Lipstick Set. (Stock image of the 12 Piece set from Neiman Marcus) (Affiliate links).
