This past weekend while I was at Macy's visiting the Shiseido counter, I also made a stop by the Fashion Fair counter to pick up my beloved True Tone Dark Spot Corrector. While waiting on the sales rep, I decided to swatch a few lipsticks... now I think they purposely take their time so we can browse other items while waiting. I already have quite a few FF lipsticks in my stash so I wasn't looking for anything in particular when the First Lady caught my eye.
I would describe this lipstick as a light pink salmon color that applies very sheer. It almost looks totally nude on me which was something I liked very much.
Fashion Fair lipstick formulas are very creamy and moisturizing. I've always loved this formula especially in the winter seasons because my lips never dry out. I was told that this color "First Lady" was very popular and has been around for quite sometime. The sales rep describes it as a Pink Nude color and I agree somewhat.
I wasn't particularly searching for a nude, I just wanted something that would give my lips just a hint of color and not look too dramatic. This color looks totally different when taken with and without flash. With flash it looks like i'm wearing a baby pink lipstick, without flash it looks totally nude with a hint of salmon.
I love this color and i'm so glad I purchased it. I've been wearing it around the house because it looks so natural. I can't wait to use it for my next Lookbook post which I will be featuring Sugarpill Cold Chemistry Palette swatched here. I think this lipstick will go well with that palette because those colors are quite dramatic.
Have you bought any lipsticks lately that totally surprised you after you've tried it?
