Ralph Lauren Delicate Lipcolor: 09 Twilight Pink

This was purchased in the second half of the 1980's, and the color is as popular this season as it was 25 years ago. It's really funny how the colors and styles that were ridiculed 10 years ago are in fashion again today, isn't it?

This is a densely pigmented, smooth lipstick that must be 80% preservatives to feel and smell normal after all this time. I threw out 90% of the lipsticks from this era because they had gone rancid, but this one hasn't changed at all.

This is the swatch on the far right, shown in shade.

Top swatch in full sun.

This is a mauve-tinged medium pink.  In the tube it's a creme finish, but in full sun it almost looks like a frost.  I would not recommend it for warm-toned skin, but it looks lovely on cool-toned folks like me.
