The Lolita bandwagon has been such a hit for those who have light skin that it’s stayed at the bottom of any makeup I wanted to try. I was worried it would be pasty, ashy and too drying for my lips. But having tried the duo I take back all of my reservations.

I picked mine up from Sephora online although they’re supposed to launch in-store on Nov.6, 2015.

Lolita I is definitely an easy neutral. The perfect shade for everyday.

Lolita II pulls far more coral on me, but I quite like it. Coral is actually a hard colour for WOC to find so this is a welcome surprise. If you’re a bit darker and find it too ashy pairing it with a brown lip liner should do the trick.

I’ve heard complaints that the liquid lipsticks are uncomfortable, drying and/or sticky but I haven’t experienced any of that. They last a good 4 hours on me and while I’m cautious when I eat I find that it fades pretty evenly.

For the price of $23.50CAD I don’t think you can go wrong. If you own a lot of lip colours, this duo gives you the perfect amount of product to cycle it in with your others, without having to worry about expiry dates. It would also make a great gift!

Hope this was helpful!
