Frosted lipstick, you either love it or hate it. Personally I love it; it’s a trend I grew up with, so it’s nostalgic for me. Matte lipsticks have been all of the rage for years, pushing sparklier shades out of style. When Covergirl showcased all of the shades, this is one that immediately caught my attention.
Lilac 20 is a shimmering frosted lilac (kinda obvious, based on the name and all…). It’s an icy light purple, totally giving me that futuristic-robot vibe. Perfect for the collection! With frosted lipsticks they normally last for a couple hours because of the shimmer/glitter content. This shade wears off very quickly, lasting maybe 3 hours tops. While that is a bit disappointing, it does fade very nicely, slowly losing that glitter/shimmer until you are left with a faint pink stain. It’s very emollient, easy to apply, and looks great layered over other lipsticks. Lilac 20 is so unique that I am considering buying a back-up!
Such shimmer! This lipstick definitely isn’t for everyone, but for $6.99, why not give it a shot? You can find this at your local Walgreen’s/CVS/Rite-Aid or pick one up here. 🙂
