Burnt Rose was my multitasking hero for rushed mornings. The earthy rose shade added just the right amount of color to my lips and cheeks, creating a harmonious, natural look. Its creamy texture blended like a dream, saving me precious time while making me look like I had spent hours on my makeup. Out of all the lip colours I have adorned, these lipsticks have not just added a color on my lips, but have been companions through my winter days and nights.
They’ve seen me through laughter, conversations, and silent reflections in the snow. As I look back on this winter, it’s not just the memories that stand out, but also the shades that colored those moments.
