I have always wanted to have one of those classic lipsticks . You know like the ones Audrey Hepburn used to wear - a cool pink / beige. Somehow most cool pinks make me look like something I don't want to look like ( Ahem ) and the cool beige made me look pale and ghostly.

You wouldn't think a lipstick named Auburn would fit this description, would ya? But it almost did ! It was by sheer luck that I found this pretty classic color from SKINN. I love wearing it with just some liquid eyeliner, slightly winged out. Some clear gloss over it , clearly brings me back to this day. I do blot the lipstick after application so its not so heavy or it tends to look cheap and not so pretty. In small doses, its almost close to the color I longed for :)

Do you have any lipstick recommendations for the soft classic look ?

For me, nothing beats Chanel’s rouge allure in silhouette for that classy elegant pink!!

This color is gorgeous! I have too many lipsticks but I think I would have to say my fave pink right now is MAC's Syrup (reminds me a lot of this one) or NYX's Perfect (a little on the nude side).

Love this lipstick looks really beautiful! What I want to know is...how do you get lipstick to stay on?! I've tried a couple of lip primers and the old-concealer-on-the-lips tip but nothing's worked!

Hi Misha !

Well, unless it is a long staying lipstick mostly they will not stay put beyond four hours. But a long staying one with a primer like even UDPP will stay put for 6 hours max. It is very tough to get them last any longer, I guess.
