Kevyn Aucoin Matte Lip Color Forever

This is the lipstick I wore for my wedding.

I loved the color first before I realized how à propos the name was.

Forever Matte Lip Color by Kevyn Aucoin is the perfect pink.

Perfect in the sense that if lipsticks came out of a crayola box, this one would be the one labeled pink.

The undertone is neither blue nor red. It is just a bright vibrant pink.

It comes in a slim, twist-up applicator.

Despite the fact that it is touted as a moisturizing lipstick, it does feel a bit on the dry side. It is formulated with vitamin E and lecithin (an antioxidant) to help nourish and protect the lips.

The texture feels velvety and soft and it goes on smoothly.

Alas! The Forever lipstick does not, in fact, stay on forever.

But it does manage to keep its brilliance for a good several hours.

The trick is to apply with a lip brush, blot, and re-apply a second layer.

This is a lipstick for people who do not shy away from colors.

I could eat this lipstick. Yum.

      I am a Kevyn Aucoin convert. I love how his lines are stripped down to the bare essentials. Also, have you looked into his life story? He was a beautiful person whose life tragically ended.

    Look at this fantastic hat! Suits you incredibly well.
    I haven’t heard of that brand before, but the packaging is nice and sleek.
    “This is a lipstick for people who do not shy away from colors.” – that is so true…i’m still a chicken sometime & tend to wear things like lip butters & co. But now that fall is approaching, i’ll be more daring in my color picks.

      Thanks Luchessa! The hat is big and floppy and makes people look at me a lot. Because of that I am always hesitant to wear it out. I hate being an attention seeker! Which is why I had to get used to wearing bright colored lipsticks, because it is definitely the number one way to get people to notice you.

    Gosh, you look so elegant in your shots! I love how bright and soft the color is. Would you say that it’s a tricky shade? I don’t know why, but pinks just baffle me. They are the most inconsistent (on my skin, at least.)
