Happy first week of fall! I am actually kind of sad about the end of summer (despite the record heat we have been getting here) but let's cling on to it a little (mentally, since the weather is dreary already) more with some bright lipsticks. Summer never ends in my lipstick drawer.
Lipstick Queen to me, had always been this high quality (at this price point) lipstick brand with boring/standard color selection. Endless Summer is this surf inspired line that's all bright and happy. When I got Aloha last year, I knew I would get another one (or two) shades from the range. So I did, and here is Stoke
Stoke is a coral (looks pinkish in the picture but as I am wearing it right now, it looks quite orangey. Maybe it's the lighting?)
Stoked is a happy color but I haven't been reaching for it that often this summer. First it's the frosted (somewhat gummy) packaging that felt icky to hold (I do have the hands of salamander) and this summer, instead of reaching for orange-coral, I have been crazy about brighter punchy pink instead. Hey, that is totally branching out.
Overall: It's rather nice formula that's well worth the low-20 to teen (the brand goes on sale on Amazon frequently) price tag. I just need to put down all the Kanebo and give these some love.
