Princess Marcella Borghese La Moda Concentrated Lipcolor: 03 Melone

Do you like bright colors?  Ever feel like you could play Norma Desmond in "Sunset Boulevard"?  Then I have the lipstick for you!

It practically glows in the dark.

This is another in the 1980's series, featuring a brand you never see outside of Costco these days, but which used to be found exclusively in department stores. I often wondered if there was an actual princess behind the line, like Helena Rubenstein or Elizabeth Arden. If there was, she has been eliminated from the brand marketing these days.

Swatched in shade.

Swatched in sun.

This is super-opaque, bright, and long lasting.  I really prefer to use it as a stain, patting on just a little bit, blotting, then topping with a sheer gloss.  It's way too much work getting it to go on straight, then having to worry if it's on your teeth, coffee cup, or clothes!
