SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Ombre Dual Lipstick Fire and Earth ($22) grabbed my attention when I was browsing Sephora recently. They are said to have been inspired by natural elements.
This deluxe, double-ended lipstick features a coordinated duo of glossy and shimmery formulas. Each color, texture, and finish is inspired by one of the four elements to create a harmonious lip look. The matte-shimmery shade (how can you have matte-shimmery, Sephora?) allows for a layer of velvety color with a sparkly finish while the glossy shade adds brilliant shine to highlight thge lips. The creamy, velvety texture glides easily onto lips so you can blend or layer shades for a multidimensional look.
Because I've been impressed with the "Pantone Universe" collection from the get-go, I decided to order one. Both looked nice, so I flipped a coin.
