Looky looky at what I got my slender hands on.
Seriously, have you seen my hands? I got them from my mother.
I found Como La Flor (“Like the Flower”) through a makeup group. Someone was selling her lightly used tube.
I am really enjoying the blue-purple hue of the packaging. I think Selena would have liked it too.
Como La Flor is described as a cool red. This is accurate, but I would call it a cherry red as well.
It has a light sheen/gloss to it.
On me, it’s definitely a bright red. I mentioned its description as a cool red earlier. Despite this, it works for me. It brings a vivid slash of color to my face that is flattering.
It fades faster than I would like, clocking in at 3 hours of weartime without eating or drinking. When I eat or drink much of it vanishes.
I’m a fan of the color, and I wish to honor Selena. I may even buy a backup because I really like the results on my complexion, and I could make it work with a red lip liner.
I think this lipstick would be fine for fans, but if you weren’t a fan go for Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Bae or MAC Russian Red. They’re both bright reds that last longer.
