That elusive doll pink lipstick

This'll be quick as I need to get ready for work! I wasn't actually planning on writing about this but as I was editing my FOTD picture in my last post, I can't help falling in love (again) with the lipstick I was wearing! It's a Pixy Lasting Matte Lipstick in Be In Love (P300). If you collect lippies, then you know how hard it is to find a delicate doll pink color in a version that actually suits medium to dark Filipina skin tones.

By jove I have found it!

You may have heard of Pixy already. It's a Japanese brand that has an affordable line of products for everyday wear. I think I have all their lipstick formulas and shades, but I honestly have yet to try all of them. Good thing I was randomly swatching a few the other week. That's how I came across Be In Love.

I've tried the MAC Pink Nouveau, the Happy Skin Valentine Kiss, Revlon Stormy Pink, and Shu Uemura Matte Lipstick in M PK335, but these are too cool and pale on my medium yellow skin.  I love the idea of a feminine pink like this but I have almost given up on finding one that suits me.

But Be In Love is the one. <3

Seeee? I'll be talking about the formula and the other shades from the Lasting Matte line next time, but if you're interested in checking Pixy out, you can find the counters inside Watsons (SM Aura, Mall of Asia, SM Sucat, Festivall Mall, SM Sucat, and SM Bacoor). ^_^

Okay I'm off! Lemme know what you think!
