Revlon Lipstick 030 Fuchsia and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Pearl in 300 Coffee Bean
I noticed a couple lipstick colors in the March issue of InStyle and thought I'd give them a try. I usually go pretty neutral, with Bobbi Brown's Brownie 33 being my current fave -- though for Spring I am switching to the lighter, pinker, more coral-y Jersey Rose 77 by Chanel... post on that coming up, (and thank you to Heidi for this post!)
These are the lipstick pics from March's InStyle that caught my eye. (Later I noticed a picture of Natalie Portman somewhere in Dior's Star Fuchsia which is photographed just to the right of Revlon's Fuchsia):
Here are a couple pics of the two new hues with my two current neutrals - first one with a flash, second without.

Here is the Fuschia color on... it was difficult for me to photograph the true color and to me it is much brighter IRL than it looks on my screen. My manicure is OPI "Do You Think I'm Tex-y" for comparison. This lipstick is very pigmented and when I wear I'll apply lightly with a brush, blot, and add a little gloss to soften. More of an evening color for me, but a nice bright & happy alternative to my usual neutrals.
Here is the Coffee Bean. Again, more of an evening color for me. Very pearlized and cinnamon-y/copper-y. I don't think this needs a gloss. I like this more for Fall/Winter.
In recent clothes shopping news, my Lands' End Canvas order arrived (quickly!) and the quality is beautiful. I'll post some pics soon. This morning I ordered the Siren Dress from J Crew in the Smoldering Brick color, after seeing some great info on the dress on one of Handbag Aficionado's Polyvore sets. (J Crew is currently offering 30% off Final Sale over at jcrew.com and 1.5% back through ebates.) I'm hoping this will work well for a trip to Hawaii we have this Spring. :)
Anyone else shopping FS?
