Marsala Lips & Nails

So I’ve decided to go with Pantone’s 2015 color of the year for lips and nails… marsala lipsrimmel's marsala lipstick!rimmel london's marsala lipstickmarsala lips and gloss!glossing lips!glossing marsala lips!marsala lips!Hello ladies! Today I wanted to share with you my take on this year’s color trend for lips and nails, #marsala. I found this pretty lipstick from Rimmel London although it’s actually called Bordeaux 124. It was highly recommended by seventeen magazine so I decided to give it a try. Because it’s a long lasting lipstick it is matte so I chose to add a little sheen with this awesome clear gloss.

I want to begin by saying that I really do think the lipstick is very pretty. Unfortunately I’m not sure I’ll be wearing it much. I found it to be quite dark and for those of you with much fairer skin tones you may end up with a sort of “eemo” look.  My take? I think I’ll leave the marsala lips for darker women with voluptuous lips. It is definitely a beautiful color for them.

As for the nails, I can totally do anytime! It’a fun color to sport in your hands and goes well with most skin tones.

What do you think of Pantone’s color of the year for lips?

    I don’t do lipstick, but I sure can appreciate some beautifully painted lips. LOL. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, Do you have any recommendations for a high quality, long lasting lipstick brand for this 50+ year old?! I love a good red lip as I have a tiny mouth and need color to make it pop 🙂
