I just noticed I never seemed to review any of my Aube Couture lipsticks (only the glosses and liquid lipsticks) even though I have quite a few colors here. Time to resolve that!
Aube Couture has 2 ranges of lipsticks out right now: The Designing Rouge and the Designing Stay Rouge. Or actually I think the regular Designing Rouge line has been discontinued recently.
It seems to be quite easy to score good Aube Couture deals on eBay, I think I didn´t pay full price for any of the Designing Rouge and Designing Stay Rouge lipsticks so far.
The Designing Stay Rouge comes in a pretty heavy silver and pink metal tube. In my opinion it looks nicer than the recent releases of Maquillage and Coffret D´or.
The formula of this is soft but it dries down a little to a longer lasting but not seriously drying finish. I really like this kind of formula as it will last good time without making my lips feel in need of balm or gloss. The finish depends on the shade. PK134 has a pretty shimmery finish whereas another color (to be reviewed soon) I own has no shimmer but a glossier finish.
Like the majority of Japanese lipsticks this is not scented or flavored. The color PK134 is a light milky peachy pink with shimmer. The shade is rather sheer so my natural lip color shines through and makes this a very nice natural lipstick color.
I got mine on eBay for around 10 bucks or so. It was definitely worth that like all the other Aube Couture lippies as they´re really nice quality!
