Face Stockholm is one of those niche brands that I only know through beauty blogs. They have a tiny closet in Columbus Circle in which every cream blush tester has a healthy dose of lint. I visited the said closet (to check out the cream blush, duh) and bailed immediately because I didn't like the packaging (it's a dealmaker/breaker for me). That sums up my experience with the brand.
Anyway, the lipstick Peony Pink was a gift from Dalenna (whose undertone is different enough that lipsticks don't work for her usually turn out very flattering on me).
Peony Pink is a crazy bright magenta (that shows up even cooler on my skin). Luckily, it's not a grandma mauve thanks to the strong dose of purple. The bullet is slightly harder than MAC lipsticks but goes on smoothly. I think it has a plastic smell or maybe it's just the way base being heated up by summer
Peripera Pink Butter(this will turn much purple after it's on the skin for a while). Peony Pink and Estee Lauder Pink Dragon.
Peony Pink is a color that make my skin really bright. The formula isn't moisturizing, during or slippery but I messed up a little around the edges(because it's too bright and I like to load on lipsticks in general).
The color doesn't stay fresh for long but the stain it leaves behind is quite stubborn. Anyway, maybe I will try it on top of a lip balm so it wouldn't require so much commitment.
