    Great video! I have a few things to return. LORAC Lip Luxe 8 Hour Lip Color in Coral, I received Orchid as a gift and it’s a great sheer spring color and I was hoping to find the same in the coral color but it’s not sheer and is just orange on my face. I love rose colored lip products and will collect them forever, but I’m trying to expand into spring-ier colors and this item is not helping the transition.

    I also wanted to love Too Faced La Creme lipstick in Bon Bon. I really like the formula but the color is too intense for me. Swatches online looked amazing so I don’t know what’s wrong with my face. I might try this again so we’ll see.

      It’s so hard to go by swatches online sometimes! Even when the lighting/color balance are right the color can show up contrast differently against your undertones. I always try to find swatches from someone who’s close to my color!
