{in search of....}

Monday, August 30, 2010

OK, ladies, this time I need your help! I am on the quest for a healthy lipstick "dupe" of my most favorite lipstick color ever made: Estee Lauder's stunning raisin shade called Divine Wine. This shade first launched in the Futurist formula back in 1999 when I was working for the company. I used to buy two at a time because it was my staple.

I wore it on and off for years and years, putting it away when I went healthy with my cosmetics. Sometimes, though, I have turned to it on those rare days when I am frustrated, as it is like a comfy old pair of slippers for me.

The shade has long been discontinued. I used to buy it on eBay, although I didn't relish the crazy prices for a discontinued product. It is very, very hard to find. Even if I could find it , though, I don't approve of the ingredients....

I'm seeking a healthy formula in a shade just like it. This is my new makeup mission! If you have any ideas, let me know!

Here is the shade:




On me, this is how it used to look when I still wore it often--this is the actual shade (which looks different than in the tube) and before I apply gloss over it. Note, I am still growing my hair--this photo is from last year :)
