Did you know that Merle Norman, established in 1931, is still around and now better than ever?
I’ve got memories of Merle Norman. In fact I think maybe my very first makeup memory is of this brand. My grandma had a tub of Merle Norman powder in her bathroom when I was a kid, and I remember always looking at it and smelling it. Wondering what it did. Eventually she gave it to me and I had it all the way through being a teen. I never really used it, it just sat on my desk. I like the way it looked.
They have a new limited edition spring collection out and I’ve got the Lip Polish in Mademoiselle for you, which is just one of twelve shades in this line.
These Lip Shines are made to give off mega-watt shine, and are long-wearing. The applicator is a soft brush.
Mademoiselle is a peachy/pink shade with gold shimmer. It does feel sticky, as most long-wearing glosses tend to, but not too bad. About the same as a MAC Lipglass.
Overall: I like that this gloss didn’t settle into my lip lines and it’s definitely very glossy. It lasted about 3 hours before I felt like I needed a touch-up, which is pretty standard for me. Pretty summer shade, not too bright and would look great with a dark smoky eye.
