TLC is gorgeous!I love demi-matte lipsticks. They’re like a happy medium. Mattes make my lips feel like prunes but I don’t care for glossy lipsticks either, which move around and just don’t flatter me. I’m quite surprised at how much I’m enjoying this lipstick given it was on sale for half-off and it’s single rating was one star but I guess it just goes to show that everyone has their personal preferences. Although demi-mattes are my favourite, it doesn’t mean I can just wear them without a little lip prep. It’s absolutely necessary to exfoliate the lips prior to achieve the best look. A little sugar mixed with a bit of oil from the pantry will help with that. TLC is a beautiful rose which would flatter just about any skin tone. I don’t recommend the Love You shade unless you’re looking for more of a bubblegum pink. The swatch doesn’t represent the colour accurately. I also find the tube itself to be really cool with its click-in/click-out action and shiny pewter finish.The only negative about this lipstick, and it can be a big one for a lot of people, is the smell/taste of the bullet. It has that waxy, crayon-type of smell that you always hope a lipstick doesn’t have. I find it off-putting, but not enough to deny myself the gorgeous TLC shade though. Overall, a nice surprise and if I can keep tolerating the scent, one that I intend to keep in my “every day/go to” drawer for a long time.
