I truly believe I bought a lipstick from a bad batch because it caused my lips to burn and turn red (not a pretty scene). Or, there was something in the formula for the colour I bought that had something in the ingredients that I am allergic too.
So, I found some courage and bought Trophy Wife; I have been lusting after this colour for so long! I am obsessed with rose-wood colours and so I knew I had to have this.
I am glad to say I am obsessed with the formula. The pigmentation is amazing and you really only need a layer or the lipstick. It applies very smoothly and is a light-weight formula which prevents caking. The lipstick is long-lasting and stayed on throughout the entire day without having to touch it up.
My lips didn't turn red and there was no burning sensation at all. I love the way the colour looks against my skin. I'm not sure if i'm brave enough to try out other colours yet (in case I get a bad reaction again), but I am so happy that I gave this another chance! Swatches below for anyone who is interested in buying this brand. Just a quick tip: try it out first in store before buying, in case you have a similar reaction as I did,
Happy Friday and Happy Mother's Day to all our beautiful and strong mother's!
