Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black
O.K., so here is the color that will make you look like a "sexy Elvira". Not for everyone, to be sure, but if you're going to go edgy or want a completely different night time look, this is the shade for you! This is a very unique dark shade that may appear dark grey/black in the tube, but my lips used alone I got a deep steel grey shade. There is a touch of brown in it which warmed it up nicely and was very flattering! Surpringly so actually. It was fairly sheer so I could build up the color, and it had a moderate amount of sparkle in it, which I loved (and saved it from making my overall face look "dead"). The effect was beautiful when the light hit it -- it gave off a holographic sheen which I loved at night. When I used this over a very dark red or brown lip color it gave me equally dramatic and sexy looks. (This is not a shade for wallflowers!). I'm excited about all the other combinations I've yet to try. The gloss has a soft and smooth texture. The applicator is a soft leaf-shaped, angled pad and I loved the packaging which is sleek, modern and futuristic. The fragrance was a soft rose which dissapated quickly. Because this is such a rich color, it will lend itself well to dramatic looks on darker skin tones from those like Oprah to Grace Jones too. If you are daring with your makeup looks -- or just want to dip your toe in the water of "edgy" this is the perfect product to do so with!
