Églantine #15 from Surratt Lipslique range looks much tamer in the tube. It's actually a very deep rose, quite complex and very elegant. It's a neutral color that goes well with either an intense eye or a mutes semi-natural look. Add to that the formula: creamy, comfortable, intensely pigmented and long lasting (it leaves a stain behind), and you get one of the prettiest lipsticks around.
The one issue with all Surratt Lipsliques is the non-retracting applicator. I've been complaining about Surratt packaging in general (the not magnetic palettes and the flimsy singles), and this is another annoyance. The products themselves are so beautiful and carefully designed. They deserve better vessels to contain and apply them.
Bottom Line: let's see how many Lipsliques I've accumulated by the end of the year.
Surratt Lipslique 15 Églantine ($34) is exclusive to Barneys.
