|Lola's Secret is one of five new Creamy Lipsticks from Susan Thompson Cosmetics|
I don't even know how to begin to express my gratitude, love and respect for my very close friend who created a lipstick in my honor. Never in my wildest
musings could I have imagined such a gift bestowed upon me. That I love Susan Thompson Cosmetics
has long been known to you, and a day does not go by that I do not use at least one product from her stellar well-edited collection. Suzi knows my taste in makeup, and my penchant for lip products- so when she handed me the lipstick that she created for me- she said, "this is the perfect
pink for you." I think it's simply the perfect
pink of all time!
I'm still pinching myself! What a lucky girl am I to have a friend that loves me enough to create such a gorgeous lipstick for me!
Lola's Secret is a truly divine
blue-based pink that defies a simple description. It isn't a Barbie Pink, and it is a little lighter than your average mid-tone pink. It is somewhere between the highly sought after My Lips But Better (MLBB) shade and the quintessential grown-up pink. 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 has a matte finish, but is part of the Creamy Lipstick range- and therefore not your average drying matte lipstick. I find it to be non-drying, but if you have very dry lips you may want to add a touch of lip balm beneath this jewel.
Lola's Secret is part of the permanent range of products at Susan Thompson Cosmetics, and it is available for purchase.
Light wash of color.
Full opaque coverage.
Lola is pretty happy to not only have a beauty blog named after her, but is now one smitten kitten to be immortalized by a gorgeous perfect pink lipstick!
Little did I know that Lola wanted her own lipstick- I guess that it just goes to show that...
Overall assessment: What's to assess- I'm on cloud 9! BEST. LIPSTICK. EVER!

Gorgeous color - an honor indeed!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sheila!! I am still pinching myself! I'm so glad that you love the color-- it is even more spectacular in person!!!!!! <3Delete
Ooooh I want it!!! I'm on her site right now...is your color not available for individual sale yet? I don't see it as an option. I love that song!!! Have you heard this remixed version?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9tH-UOG3iAReplyDelete
Hi Gummy!! It's even more awesome in person!! It is so stunning!! She hasn't posted the new collection yet, but I saw her pile of new products when I was at her house the other day-- so she has them. If you know that you want it you can try to see if you can just order it manually, but if not- I will call her up to see if she can upload it- or at least give me some direction. Wait until you see all of my swatches-- of course Lola's Secret is my favorite! :D I did see that remix-- it is awesome! I love this song!Delete
She just updated her website and the new Collection has been posted. It's all there!!!! <3
How exciting! It's beautiful and I love the shot of it against the blooms. <3ReplyDelete
Thanks, Liz!! I am so excited that I am bursting with happiness! I'm glad that you liked the pictures against my Lilacs and Jasmine! <3Delete
As soon as I saw the picture of all five I knew which one would be Lola's Secret. Well the secret is out and it's gorgeous and looks so much like what I know of your taste. What an honor.ReplyDelete
Hi Marcia!! You know me and my taste!! I'm s glad that you like it-- it's just dreamy in person, and I love wearing it with Mim's the Word. I have also playing with mixing it, and it becomes the perfect nude pinky peach when mixed with Romantic (you'll see the swatch of it tomorrow) and also True Love (from her original collection). I am now experimenting mixing it with other colors from RBR, LMdB, Youngblood and more-- it's an amazing shade. All 5 swatches together are simply just too gorgeous to adequately describe!!!!! I am so tremendously honored that I can barely stop myself from crying. Perfect stress release in the midst of everything else going on right now!!!!!!! <3Delete
that's very cool to have a lipstick with your name. pretty shade, tooReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Xlovehappyx! I'm pretty excited!!! I have worn it every day since it was given to me! So happy! :DDelete
Lola, what a GORGEOUS shade! Like others, I have been to her site and the new products are not up yet. I am curious to see her eyeshadows. Still searching for the perfect pink/flesh/eyelid tone eyeshadow, lol.ReplyDelete
And WHERE are those swatches?! *stamps foot impatiently* : )
Congrats, you, of ALL people deserve to have the perfect pink lipstick named after you.
Thank you 3bDiva!! The shade really is amazing! Her website has been updated now- so all of the new shades are up. Her eyeshadows are really gorgeous, and I will get those swatches posted in the next couple of days.Delete
You are going to freak out when you see all of the lipstick swatches-- I am posting them tomorrow. I was swooning as I was swatching! Plus I have been having fun mixing the colors and creating some custom colors!!
What a very lovely thing to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart!<3
the formula of that lipstick looks great! :D pretty color too!ReplyDelete
Hi Laura! The formula is amazing. All of these lipsticks are unbelievably pigmented- with amazing opaque coverage! I am posting swatches of all five of them tomorrow-- they are truly swoon worthy!! :DDelete
Awesomely cool and Congrats!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Olivia! It's all pretty thrilling!!!! <3!Delete
Wow, all those look so niceReplyDelete
Hi Tiffany Nicole! They are all amazing. I will be posting all of the swatches tomorrow-- you will be stunned by how gorgeous and pigmented they are! :DDelete
After seeing the pic & then reading that she created a lipstick in your honor there was absolutely no doubt which one was yours! First thought when only the pic was showing on the screen was that I "need" to have both of the pink lipsticks in my life but especially the lighter one. Perfection in a tube! What a wonderful gift! That you have a lipstick or any beauty product for that matter created expressly for you is a treat that very few women in the world can lay claim to!ReplyDelete
Reading through responses I can see why you like it paired with Mim's the Word!
Off to check out the rest of the new collection!
Hi lov2read68!! You know my taste-- I know just what you mean-- Lola's Secret is quintessentially the ultimate "me" color. Both of these pinks are utter perfection-- they also mix well together. I also like mixing Lola's Secret with lighter nude colors-- the results are stunningly beautiful! Lola's Secret really is perfection in a tube-- and I am so profoundly touched that Suzi created the shade specifically for me and named it after the blog!! I am really speechless and so humbled! It is the most generous and thoughtful gift, and never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that such a thing would happen!!! Lola's Secret is GORGEOUS with Mim's the Word-- utter pink perfection!! I just posted swatches of the remaining lipsticks, and will try to get the remainder of the collection posted in the next couple of days!Delete
I'm so glad that you like Lola's Secret!!! <3 xoxox
That is so lovely, it really shows how much they think of you, and what a gorgeous colour as well xxReplyDelete
Thank you, Replica!! I am definitely humbled and touched by the supremely generous gift! The color really is so lovely!!! xoxoxDelete

Thank you so much, Elysse!! I am still pinching myself in disbelief! It is even lovelier in person!! <3Delete

Thanks, Joyce! I'm pretty smitten with all of the lipsticks, but of course Lola's Secret is my VERY favorite! <3Delete
How exciting and cool to have a lipstick named after you! :) Very pretty colour and looks like it'd go with a wide variety of skintones. This is on my "to buy" list.ReplyDelete
It was a huge surprise, Iris! I am so touched and humbled! The color is so stunning, and it really is the PERFECT PINK!! I agree that it will work with a variety of skin tones! I hope that you love it as much as I do!! <3Delete
