You know how the fashion powers that be keep "announcing" that orange is the big color of Spring 2012? Because someone at Pantone said so?
And how it makes a cool toned girl like me just cringe in fear? While I don't really have many intentions of actually trying out the orange for myself, I'm a bit afraid of how many people will try despite how hard it can be to wear sometimes.
In the meantime, CoverGirl sent me this lipstick to try out. (Ignore that broken tip, somehow I managed to do that when I opened it up.) Yes, it is orange, but it actually kind of worked for me. Especially if used as a lip stain (apply, blot, repeat and cover with balm for the impression of the color but a bit more of your own lip showing through. Also, it lasts for forever.), this is how the cool toned girls can wear this season's orange!
