But this is a Strawberry Milk I can actually have.
I really liked Yves Saint-Laurants Rouge Volupte in Lingerie Pink #7. Didn't like the price so much. I know girls love YSL for the luxury and their products but I can't partake because of the high price. Nope. Can't do it.
Dupe List, a well-loved feature of the website. Strawberry Milk was on the list, and its from a brand I'm familiar with. I tried very hard to find swatches, reviews, and find the actual product at Ulta! Reviews were a bit mixed and few, swatches didn't have great lighting (sometimes I feel like mine have terrible lighting but I try!) and of course, every single time I went to Ulta it was sold out. Didn't want to buy this one lipstick online, seemed like a waste as the price would be higher because of shipping.
I finally did find it at Ulta, after having given up and letting the color go entirely. I don't think I've been more frustrated in my life to find something!

Per the usual, you can find NYX at Ulta and online at NYXCosmetics.com, as well as other online shops. NYX sells these for $4.00 even but Ulta has them listed for $3.99. Oh the silliness of pricing... I encourage you to find the best price on these. I really do like the Round Lipsticks, they're cheap and I've liked the colors, creaminess. I hope to try more of the range if I can find them in person. (Not likely but a girl can dream, right?)
I plan on redoing all lip swatches, they will be posted to my Facebook in a Swatch Gallery I do believe. I'll do a Swatch Gallery here too. I really want pink lipstick. Not fuchsia, not hot pink, not Barbie pink! Just pink. The basic, little-girl's-unicorn-room pink. No one seems to understand this want of a non-bright lipstick. I also don't care for coral lipsticks particularly!
