I’ve already reviewed three other lipsticks from this line: Silky Java, Fiery Veil and Cherry Tulle. The line’s claim is that it delivers a lightweight finish that’s non-sticky. That is true. It’s also a slightly translucent formula that has plenty of pigment, but just a slight sheerness that makes it blend with your natural lip color for a more flattering effect. So far, so good. But the wear time with this formula was about two hours – less than I get with a balm. Some shades wore more comfortably than others.
Pink Cashmere (about $10 at drugstores), the lipstick featured in this review, was the poorest performer of the four I tried. Its wear time was about the same as the others, but it had the additional problem of quickly settling into lines and highlighting any imperfection on my lips, and then feeling dry for most of the wear time. It wasn’t drying, it was just dry feeling on the lips.
The color itself is very pretty – pink with undertones that are just on the cool side of neutral, and a nice luminous shine (which unfortunately doesn’t last very long either). The color should work on a lot of skin tones, and while it always picks up a touch of your natural lip color due to its slight sheerness, it does have plenty of pigment that will show up on deeper skin tones.
I really wanted to love this line of lipsticks, but each shade had some issues, and they all have a short wear time on me. Have any of you had a better experience?
