I think I've found one of my new, favorite, neutral lip colors for the fall. Laura Geller's Dream Cream lip pallets are wonderful. I have received mine through the Escape from the Tropics Collection I ordered on auto deliver from QVC -- you can see the first set's swatches here. These are stripes of lipstick, for lack of a better term. These are not lip gloss, but instead are fully pigmented and can be applied on their own or mix and matched to create a color you find best suits you.
The color I am absolutely loving is the coral stripe second from the right in the Como pallet. In the pan it looks to be an almost washed out brick shade. When applied, it is a beautiful nude creme with a hit of coral, and I am absolutely in love. It works so well with my skin tone, is easily wearable with most anything, and the lasting power on these colors are fantastic.
If you haven't tried the Laura Geller Dream Creams, I would highly suggest you try them. A lot of possibilities in one little compact.
