Fool-proof lip colour

 Veteran make-up artist Susan Posnick created Coloressential lipsticks to provide women with a fool-proof way to select a flattering lip colour. Coloressential is a collection of five perfectly balanced shades that will look good on any woman. Editor Alice Farnsworth and I tried on the same shadeMilan, a red-brown. Alice is a pink person and I am a yellow. It looked better on Alice, but it worked for both of us. It is a matter of preference; I usually wear a pinky brown and would have worn the Dubai or Dallas happily.

The lipstick is formulated with unique ingredients; it has paracress, an African plant rich in antioxidants, pomegranate, olive, mineral, and Vitamins A and E. It feels fabulous. Alice says the staying power is terrific. I am eyeing a tube of Dubai and will get back to you! It costs $17 US.
