This is Syrup, a Lustre finish lipstick. This is another mostly-sheer shade, because I'm still not that brave. The MA picked it out as a soft, every day color. It closely matches my natural lip color, enhancing it slightly and adding a bit of sheen. I like.
Here's the ingredient panel (click for larger):

I love this color: in person, it's a slightly creamy - though not matte - pink and very subtle. When S. came back from his run, I asked him what he thought. He peered at my face closely (with a mildly bemused expression), and finally gave up. "What do I think...about what?" He usually notices things, and is pretty helpful in general with fashion/makeup choices when I ask (although he is partially shade blind, which makes it difficult sometimes, haha), so that just kind of shows how subtle the lip color is. It's not a show stopper, but I do appreciate the light pink color - it adds a bit of brightness and freshens up my face. And sometimes I don't want show stopping. Carry on!
The texture is a little heavier than the glaze finish, but still comfortable on the lips. In short: a keeper! So I'm done buying lipstick for now. I have a few other colors that I'm interested in - enough to establish a sort of "basic set" of lipsticks (a coral color - MAC Vegas Volt or Gotta Dash (sheen supreme), a nice bronzy red, like the Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine in Sunset Bronze, or the MAC sheen supreme in Can't Resist, and a vampy dark color), but I can wait on those. Maybe I'll buy a coral in time for summer. Any suggestions? Most popular lipsticks that I've seen are paraben-free, with the exception of older Chanel formulas and some drugstore brands.
