I relented to my urges and bought Dreaming of You lipstick from Nordstrom on the very last day of the final sale.
I know some may think blogging about it so late is pointless because the merchandise is gone for good, but I wanted to do some comparison swatches later on.
So, here is Dreaming of You (coincidentally my favorite Selena song).
MAC describes it as “deep wine with a Matte finish”. This is accurate.
Here is the swatch.
I found it to be well pigmented and easy to apply. The opacity can be built up, although it is not what I would call sheer. It appears darker the more you apply it.
It lasted for 4 hours on me without a touch up. With food and beverage consumption it came off completely. This wasn’t distressing for me as it is not promoted as a long-lasting or smudgeproof lip product.
I will search through my stash for potential dupes. I am slightly astonished to realize that I cannot think of an exact shade at the moment. This seems like a that would be overrepresented in my collection.
Did you buy anything from the Selena collection?
