Red Lip Series: Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Tint in Dantique

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 30 - 2011

It’s been a while huh?  I’m thinking that the temperature has dropped enough now to kick-start the red lip series again…

I’m easing myself back into the season slowly though with this little number from makeup uber-God Kevyn Aucoin.

Kevyn Aucoin’s The Expert Lip Tint in Dantique is a proper grown-up red that oozes sophistication and I’m completely smitten with it.  The shade reminds me a little of my Burberry Lip Cover in Claret but while the Burberry is slightly more pink-berry toned, this one leans to a rosey/red-brown.  It’s a totally work-appropriate red if you live in fear of wearing your lips a little too loudly.

Genuinely moisturising on my lips and wears down evenly to a pretty stain, I can see myself hitting stump on this shade.

There are currently some Kevyn Aucoin lipsticks for sale on eBay at a very good price, I’m sure they’re old stock but I’ve bought a couple with no problems, otherwise – you can buy online priced at £20 each from MiseBeauty.com

    Wow that looked like such a vampy colour in the tube (not that I’m against that), and comes out as such a wearable, and, like you said, work-appropriate.
    I loved the red lip series, I’m glad it’s back!

    This is such a gorgeous rust red. Another reason why I need some Kevyn Aucoin in my life right now.

    He was my hero growing up, can you believe that next year it will be 10 years since his death?
    I had a book by him when I was a teenager, as my mum doesn’t wear make-up it taught me everything!
