A couple of months ago I saw the most beautiful lip combo on Pinterest. It was Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude and Super Lustrous lip gloss in Peach Petal. I am not huge on nude lips, because I think sometimes they can look way too pale, but this combo seemed perfect because the peach gloss would give the nude lipstick the perfect color boost. Also, the combo would be under $20. That’s a first class ticket to Deal City.
So this little lady took herself on a shopping trip. I went to Target. Nothing there. I went to CVS. Again, they didn’t have these shades. I stood baffled, silent, and confused, until the 16-year-old associate at CVS asked me if everything was okay. I asked about the Revlon lip shades and she told me they didn’t make those shades anymore.
I let myself have a great pity party for five seconds and then I took action. I found a new combo that I’m obsessed with.
1. Lip liner: Essence, shade #11, “In the Nude”. $1.49 from Ulta.
2. Lipstick: Revlon Super Lustrous, shade #001, “Nude Attitude, Matte”. $7.99 from CVS.
3. Lipgloss: Revlon Colorburst, shade #042, “Bellini”. $7.99 from CVS.
After using the liner and one light coat of lipstick, I dabbed the gloss in the center of my lips and worked it out with my finger to smooth it out.
