Lovelorn is one of my many 'bought on a whim' purchases. It's kind of sad that I actually, for a couple of weeks, forgot that I even bought this lipstick. Only after recent a purse clean-out, I have remembered it! I guess that day I was just hungry for another pink lipstick, can anybody relate to that? After finding Lovelorn in my purse that day, I thought about returning it. Thanks to those whose swatches came up in my search that day, you definitely convinced me to keep this beaut :)
I learned to stay away from blue toned pink lipsticks the hard way. Oh I have lost count on how many I had to get rid off because I simply couldn't make them work with my skin tone. Lovelorn is a medium blue pink that seems to work with me though. I can finally and proudly say that I am able to wear a pink lipstick with blue undertones :D
I initially thought Lovelorn would be pretty close to the other famous pink MAC lipstick Angel. They are definitely in the same family, I'd say cousins. Lovelorn is a tad darker than Angel. I also think Angel's consistency is way creamier than Lovelorn's. It may be due to the fact that Angel is in Frost finish and Lovelorn is in Lustre finish. In my opinion they are both semi-opaque. I feel like Lovelorn is more of a summer color also, what do you think?
Photo on the left side has Angel on left but on swatches they are switched around, which makes Lovelorn on left and Angel on right.
If you're looking for an everyday, easy-to-wear pink lipstick, definitely check out Lovelorn. It looks like such a boring color (sorry Lovelorn lovers!) in the tube, but once applied it's love! No wonder I initially wanted to return it, I love it now that I wear it :)
What is your favorite summery pink lipstick?
