I don’t really post about things that don’t work for me. And I certainly don’t like posting unflattering photos of myself. Although after some time I feel all of my photos are unflattering. But I figured I’d change things up today and share this little gem with y’all.

I’m always tempted to try some of those ‘out there shades.’ Out there for me is a shade I wouldn’t dare wear outdoors. Some people can rock the hell out of green and blue lipstick, but I’m so not one of those people. And now I can add greyed out lavender to the list. I’m sure I can make it work by mixing it with another lipstick, but on its own? Nope. You can see my hell no finger wagging self down below. You’re welcome.

The photo above was taken during my first test. Usually I apply a light layer of lip balm before applying any lipstick. That just made the product slide around my lips making for an uneven application. I tried to get it to spread evenly, but had no luck. I tested it again this time without the lip balm and it applied perfectly. However, it still wasn’t doing me any favors. It was a very comfortable wear and I really like the finish. Also, the Ultra Satin Lip isn’t watery like the Ultra Mattes I’ve tried. It’s definitely more of a creamier lipstick. It’s very nice. If only it didn’t make me look sickly. Which I guess is the theme of the week thanks to this awful cold from hell. Have I complained enough about this cold? No?

I did end up getting a few more shades from the Ultra Satin Lip collection. Thankfully the other shades worked out for me. I had a feeling Marshmallow wasn’t going to work out, but I just had to try it. It’s funny because the husband was just as bummed that it didn’t work for me. He really loves the shade. So do I. So do I…

  1. I have to say .. it is a pretty color, but I don’t think gray/lavenders are really pretty on anyone as it sort of sucks the life out of everyone’s skin tone. Just my opinion of course ;-)

  4. Your husband has makeup preferences? Wow.
    I think this color is hard to wear, and I don’t think I could pull it off, but well, we need to try, don’t we?

    • Yes! He’s forever complimenting my makeup. When something doesn’t work for me he feels my pain. He also dyes and styles my hair for me! He’s a very hands-on husband lol.

      You’re right it is a hard color to wear. And try I did. :)

  5. Yeah, nope XD I honestly don’t know this shade could look good on. It looks fun and everything but it’s bound to be unflattering!

  7. Psh I actually like it!! Maybe if you try it with different eye colors, you can make it work πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

    • I dunno. I’ve thought about trying different looks, but I think it’s my skin tone that it doesn’t work with. It’s just a very weird shade to work with lol. I’ll probably end up sending it your way. :)
