I found the lipstick on its own to be a bit drying and the color is opaque. To combat the drying effects I applied my EOS lip balm before the lip paint, but as a result this also sheers the color out a bit. Instead of being an opaque lavender, some of my natural lip color shows through (which is quite pigmented... sometimes very annoying!) making it appear more like a lavender with pink undertones. Much more wearable in my opinion! (Also, I forgot to do swatches on my hand but if any of you would like to see them, just let me know and I'll be happy to oblige!)
Please meet my messy, "I'm too lazy to style it" hair. And please excuse my ginormous forehead :)

Did you all notice that I don't have any real foundation on? Yay! I hope to be able to keep doing so this summer as long as my skin behaves itself :)
What's your take on lavender lips?
