L'Oreal Penthouse Pink

 The thing about those little round EOS lip balms is that the cats think they're awesome toys, and Beau was knocking mine around this morning until I got wise and put the thing out of his reach.  Now he's purring away on my lap and nuzzling my bathrobe, so I can sit and type uninterrupted for a second. 

I had an "I don't know what to wearrrrr!!" moment last night (I just got some new Prisms in the mail, and I have my Holland polishes just waiting to be tried) and I decided (with C's help) on this pretty little creamy carnation pink I picked up last month.  This is L'Oreal Penthouse Pink, which looks every bit as high maintenance as its name suggests, and officially makes me a pastel convert. 



I feel like I have trouble with light and blushed pinks; my skin is just a little too olive.  It's such a pretty shade, though.  Look how shiny. :)


I used three coats for this and I could have used four; it's still a little streaky.  L'Oreal's formula is nice and easy to use, though.  I really like this line and I can't wait to see what they come out with in the future.  
Have a lovely Friday.  Thank you for reading. :)

  1. This is really pretty! I have a love/hate relationship with pastels. I love to wear them but hate to put them on. They can be so much work.

  4. How is it that you post these colors I would NEVER consider and I find myself wanting them so badly! I'm getting the blue LÓreal you posted a couple weeks and back and I went last week and bought the Wet N' Wild stars one...see what a bad influence you are ;)

  5. Liesl, I am not usually a fan of pastel pinks but this is GORGEOUS. And may I also say that you have a very distinctive nail shape. Like when a picture of your nails comes up in my Blogger dashboard I automatically know it's you :) Very pretty! <3

    1. You know... I have yet to wear a true red. I own a couple red jellies, so I don't know what I'm waiting for!
