Modesty was one of those lipsticks I just randomly chose after picking up around six lipsticks from the same colour family and realising I have them all. I didn't even really swatch it properly or pay too much attention to it I was just glad I didn't own it. Naughty I know, it was only after a week I realised I still hadn't tried it on, swatched it, blogged it.
So I applied my rosebud lip liner by NARS which I must say is becoming a firm favourite of mine! I then applied modesty on top..(Bear in mind the lipliner slightly darkens the lipstick)
All I can say is Wow!!
I have worn 'Modesty' everyday for 8 days in a row and that is no word a lie. I love everything about it, the colour is spot on to what I had in mind, the texture and the finished look of this lipstick is my current definition of lipstick perfection! I love that it's a cremesheen and usually I am more for the matte lipsticks, it has such a pretty shimmer to it.
The colour? Is again my usual blend of brown meets a slightly pinkish undertone, natural but more than a nude lipstick. It really does create a defined luscious lip and I love it!
I don't think I have ever used a new lipstick everyday for more than a week that's a record and it surprised me even more because I never expected it to be such a hit, don't you just love it when that happens!
