I got this for mom, but was so giddy with excitement that the moment I opened the lippie tube, I wanted to try it first to see if it would pass my Mom's taste for lippies (okay, thats just an excuse, ahaha! I just wanted to see how this lippie looks like haha!)
This lippie is from T. Le Clerc and its from the Paradise Lipstick Line
and this lippie I got is shade 02 Rose Transparent,
skeptical at first, i thought it would look like NARS Schiap or any other hotpink lippie I bought (on impulse) before but never really had the chance to wear since i find the hotpink color too bright for my liking. And besides, I rarely wear lipsticks, i usually wear gloss or tinted glosses or lip tints. I wasnt really a fan of the non-sheerness (if theres such word) of most lipsticks.
On the tube, the color is more like a muted hotpink thats not as bright as NARS Schiap (which is the most fluorescent hotpink lippie ive ever seen thats why im using it as basis of comparison).
has a hint of sheen to it and smells like MAC lipglass, mild vanilla-ish scent thats not overpowering at all.
(okay, i have this habit of sniffing my makeups before trying them haha!)
The lippie tube bears T. Le Clerc's signature embossed art.
the front part of the box.
the ingredients, its PARABEN FREE! <3 <3 <3

the swatch I "wrote" at the back of my hand.
see how its sheer, like no coverage at all (is that the right way to describe the transparency of this lippie? haha! im clueless!)
and dont you just love the sheen and the pop of color it gives? vibrant, fresh, but not too loud right?
This lippie is GOOOOOD! Worn it since this afternoon and it sure did moisturize my lips as well (NOTE : didnt put lipbalm underneath the lippie)
*WARNING : Picture of lips with Lady Mustache peeking ahead bwahaha!*
I like how it complements my skintone well
(well I dunno if you guys would agree, thats what I think, just saying it out loud haha!)
This one's definitely a keeper, and I think id be buying myself a pop of this shade, and prolly backups as well coz its really really really nice.
When worn :
I super love this lippie!
Live, Love and Stay Fab!!! :)
