My second favorite lipstick from this line - Seashell Nude.

As much as I despise brown lipsticks , I am coming to believe that brown looks good on brown. Just as with any other color finding the right brown makes all the difference. I grew up seeing my beautiful aunt wear the most jarring brown lipstick that almost looked black. Of course it was the 90's and people world over loved brown makeup. She'd be an NC 40 too but that dark brown lipstick had a lasting effect on how I looked at brown lipsticks.

The newest term for brown lipstick is of course deep nude and you can call this lipstick that. Its a bronzy deep nude / very earthy shade on my lips. The formula is so very luscious that for $9 it is one of the very best formulas out there.

The shade is gorgeousness personified. I cant think of anybody that wont look good wearing it. The shade changes depending on your lip color. If you have pale /pinkish / light lips it appears less brown. I have mauve tones / medium pigmented lips and it looks more brown on me. On browner lips it will be a sensuous nude !

where do you get Sally Hansen lipsticks from? I tried CVS, but didn't find it there. I think I tried Walmart too, not sure though. But can you please tell me where did you get it from? Thanks

Hi Anon ,

I get mine at CVS.
But I've learnt not all CVS's in all cities carry everything. So we have to hop around check out a couple more stores... I don't think Walmart carries this line. Try your grocery store - Kroger if you have them in your city.

Brownish tones are very suitable for the darker skin tones.The skin tone contrast the shade which gives a lot of lift to the face.
