Hello everyone! I live in the snow for most of the year and this is the first time in two years that I am experiencing a full blown summer because I am usually in Argentina during the summer in the U.S. (down there it is winter when it is summer here). When I come back to the U.S. I experience the very end of summer right before classes resume. So I have had a plethora of new experiences which include farmer’s tan, clothing confusion, and makeup confusion… as well as nail polish confusion. I have gotten pretty used to what colors I wear on myself and now that I am tan I am having a difficult time dressing myself and well… painting myself. It is unbelievable how much of a difference skin tone makes when wearing certain colors! I used to ALWAYS wear berry colors on my lips and nails because it went well with my skin tone and now I look like a clown when I wear them!
Anyways, during my 2-year-long winter I had at times desired to wear “summery colors” (especially peach/orange) but of course most did not look good. The other day (like 4 weeks ago) when I was perusing blogs I came across Revlon’s new releases and I decided I wanted to try Pango Peach and Lover’s Coral.
Pango Peach is a creamy pinky/peachy color with golden shimmers that almost look like flakes. It’s not very sticky and has a strange smell that is not gross and fades away!
Lover’s Coral looks very intimidating but actually goes on a very sheer (which I love) wash of pinky/orange.
I’ve included tons of photos to show the glitter/flakes and colors so ya’ll know what I’m talkin bout. (It was an overcast day at the park so the flakes might not shimmer as much)
These lip swatches are not very accurate because it was overcast and my lips are pretty pigmented now because of the sun and the shadows are all wrong! But I included it in case you have a similar skin tone to mine and also because I really appreciate when bloggers take their time to post lip swatches (even though these are shoddy).
Thanks for reading!
