Semi-sheer rose with subtle gold shimmer and a slightly glossy sheen. It doesn’t settle into lip lines at all, and actually makes your lips look like they’re in great condition.


This is by far the most moisturising lipstick I own, and the only one that feels like it adds moisture to my lips, like a balm. This means that I can wear this even on my flakey dry lip days and it will look flattering and feel incredibly comfortable.

Zinnia has a very slight tackiness to it, which stops it from sliding around your lips like some of the creamier lipsticks tend to do, and also gives it a reasonably good wear time of 2ish hours.


It has a pleasant vanilla cake type scent (similar to MAC lipsticks).

To see my FOTD with Zinnia, keep reading after the jump!

  7. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Greetings, I believe your web site could possibly be having browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful blog!

  9. Thanks for your write-up on this site. From my own personal experience, often times softening right up a photograph may provide the photo shooter with a chunk of an artistic flare. Sometimes however, this soft clouds isn’t what precisely you had as the primary goal and can in many cases spoil a normally good snapshot, especially if you consider enlarging it.

  10. You could definitely see your skills in the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. At all times follow your heart.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
