Very much a my lips but nude-r shade :) I've been wearing this to work over a lip balm on days when I feel like something more beige than pink.
Roses and Violets
My other go-to colour. It's just so pretty and effortless! Anyone that knows me will tell you I'm not into pink. At. All. But something about this lipstick just makes me feel so girly and pretty without being saccharine... the faint violet sheen and rosy scent helps :)
This lipstick was a lot more... light orange than I expected. I don't think it looks good on me at all, and as you can see from the swatch pic, it clings to all my lip lines and dry patches. To make this a bit more wearable, I smooth some Sobe Botanicals Gothstix in Panic over the top - it deepens the colour and makes it a bit more creamy.
It doesn't look super different on here but in person it makes a HUGE difference. Oh and one other thing about Shrieking Orange... it stains.
I'm not super keen on metallic or frosty lipsticks, they always either are patchy on me or accentuate my liplines thus making me look dreadfully dehydrated (I mean, I am a lot of the time, but who wants to see that?!) but HHHNNGGGHH I love this colour so much. The golden sheen makes it look so luxe.
I still have a bunch more I want to get in tubes, but at least I have a decent lip brush now (from Furless, review of those coming soon) so I can use my potted ones. I know a lot of people have been put off by the latest lipstick price raises at Morgana, and the shortage of samples, but... I honestly believe her formulas and her colour range are worth it. And how about those new balms?! I can't even BEGIN to narrow them down to "ones I really actually would wear" versus the "OMGPRETTY" ones versus the "I gotta see that in person" versus the... yeah When I have money again I think I might just join the Lipstick Coven.
