i have to admit that i did not love this color when i picked it up at the Clearance section of Superstore. i did a little search on my phone to check out some swatches, couldn't find any but then i got hung up on the words "Limited Edition".
Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipcolor in "20 Strike a Posy" is part of their Limited Edition Fashion Week collection for Spring 2012. a lipstick that is no longer made for $4.44? i want.
so i got.
"Strike a Posy" is a shimmery warm coral color. i do not prefer shimmer in my lipsticks - to me, there seems to be a bit too much shine going on. the formula already leaves a glossy finish. the pigmentation is there and it's also very moisturizing on the lips.
middle to bottom: artificial light; natural light
so are you like me and sometimes fall for "limited editions" or "collector's sets"?
i apologize for the Luxe Box post i said i would be doing... tomorrow, i promise!
