Lola's Secret Lipstick

 Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

When my close friend, Suzi, founder and CEO of Susan Thompson Cosmetics, created a lipstick for me I was deeply honored. It is far from an everyday occurrence that someone, let alone a highly acclaimed celebrity makeup artist, creates a lipstick in your honor! When she handed me Lola's Secret she exclaimed that it was the perfect shade of pink for me. I would argue that it is simply the perfect shade of pink!

Lola's Secret Lipstick is a truly divine blue-based pink that is highly saturated and tremendously vibrant. It is a mid-tone shade that can be built up to maximum opacity and impact, or sheered out for a lovely wash of color. It is the quintessential grown-up pink that can be worn across a wide variety of skin tones, and it will appeal to people who love a bold lip or one that is far more subdued.

Lola's Secret boasts a creamy and moisturizing formula that effortlessly glides across the lips and deposits color evenly. It neither feathers, nor does it settle into lip lines, and it wears evenly. Lola's Secret has the perfect amount of cushion, and is very comfortable on the lips. It has a slight sheen, but I find that it has the longevity of a matte formula without the drying that often accompanies matte formulas. I get abut 4 hours of wear from a single application, but even longer when paired with a lip liner. It has a very faint vanilla scent that fades soon upon application, and therefore will not bother people who are sensitive to scent in their lip products.
Susan Thompson Cosmetics are:
Paraben Free
Allergy Tested
Fragrance Free
Not Tested on Animals
It has a complexity about it in that the color modulates in the light, and therefore has a chameleon-like quality. It can be worn as a simple wash of color that is barely there, or it can be built up to full unadulterated opacity. It is utter perfection, and the ultimate pink lip nirvana. Naturally, it is my favorite lipstick for the perfect pink pout, who am I trying to fool-- it is my favorite lipstick of all time!! At this rate of use I will finish the tube in record time!
Lola's Secret is an antioxidant rich formula packed with Vitamin E.
Left to Right: The first three swatches are applied with varied degrees of intensity tot illustrate its ability to be opaque and sheered out. The last two swatches compare this version of Lola's Secret (left) with the original formula (right; reviewed here). While the colors are nearly identical, the new formula is even more spectacular than the original.
     As you can see, Lola's Secret is a very wearable shade whether you prefer a bold or an understated lip.
