Shu Amore

I'm typically a nudist...when it comes to lip color, that is. I've been looking for, oh I don't know, 24 years to find that perfect natural-but-better lip gloss/stick/pencil/balm/whatever and I have quite the arsenal of contenders.

I've never gone over to the dark side. That is, of course, until yesterday. After weeks of being bombarded by images of vamp-y, purple-y lips (Who What Wear did a particularly convincing article recently) I decided to take a walk on the wild side and try a dark lip.

And so fate (or habit) led me to Barneys and I traipsed on over to the Shu Uemura counter and got, so to speak. My lovely readers, I'd like to present to you Gloss Unlimited, color pr 059n OK, so maybe the color name is slightly clinical sounding, but the color is fab. It's a dark and moody purple, but not Halloween purple. So fresh...and I think... so chic with an otherwise bare (meaning mascara only) face and hair pulled back.
