These lipsticks had been discontinued for a while now, and I'm not too heartbroken about it. Yes, I really loved the formula and I raved about it when I first tried it, but I haven't indulged in more of them due to the color selection.
All pictures taken in natural light without flash.
After buying Ambrosia, I tried playing with the testers at Sephora and kept walking away empty-handed and disappointed. The other colors were dull, uninspiring, and generally unflattering on me. This is not to mention that the vast majority were loaded with shimmers, and most were rather opaque. Those that were translucent enough were like the color Baby Baby below, more like non-colors.
- Baby Baby: translucent nude with lots of shimmers. Due to the color itself and the translucency, the lipstick disappears on my lips, leaving behind only shimmers. Boo. Hiss :(
