Dear Roses and Lilies,
For those of you who have been using lipsticks by Artistry ( from Amway ) and are happy with how they perform, there is yet another reason for you to love them.
Artistry recently redesigned their lipstick range. Now we have the Crescendo packaging with the golden cap for the regular, full coverage lipsticks and the black cap for their sheer ones - and a new name: Signature Color and Signature Color Sheer.
What both versions have in common - the exclusive twist and click design that makes using these lipsticks a whole lotta' fun.
Taffeta Rose #14 seems to me like a warm rosy color in the tube and it looks fantastic on a medium to dark skin tone. On pale skin, it can make you look washed out if you're not careful how you do the rest of your makeup.
The lipstick itself is moisturizing and - they say - fragrance free. It does contain soybean oil, which is both a moisturizer and a fragrance.
If you ever smelled a Clinique lipstick, which is also fragrance free, you'll surely notice the bitter, 'old times of yore' lipstick scent.
These Artistry lipsticks do not smell like that. To cover up the nasty aspirin-like smell, there's a tiny bit of fragrance - but it's quite safe.

As you may notice, they added more plant extracts, which is a huge plus in my book. So no more chapped lips after taking the lipstick off and, probably, anti-aging benefits on the long-term.
For those of you who are not familiar with Artistry lipsticks, I do encourage you to try the full coverage or the sheer ones. The packaging is eye catching, fun to play with and the shade range is decent.
See ya' later!
