You get what you pay for, and in this case it is a jewel lipstick compact with a white-gold shimmer designed by Lorenz Bäumer, a Parisian jeweler. Channeling James Bond, a mirror pops up when the compact is opened. The case is very heavy, yet with some serious glam.
My lips have been exceptionally dry this summer, so, besides this stunner packaging, I was impressed with its skin care capabilities. Somehow, they are able to package very long term wear while still being highly moisturizing. And according to my nose, this is essentially scent-free.
Gigolo (70) is a cooler tone that works MUCH better on me than shades containing orange. Plus, your teeth appear whiter. While it is sold as a plum, it actually appears berry-red on me.
This is a pretty penny at $47, but, like I said, the packaging is extraordinary, lip color has great staying power and it is a lip treatment to boot.
