I love experimenting with eye makeup and would wear pretty much everything out. But when it comes to lips, some shades I just can’t wear outside my own place.

This is how Kontorl looks like: it is a purple with a blue base.

This lipstick is very opaque and creamy, it gives a beautiful even colour and doesn’t look chalky! Plus I don’t find it drying at all. One more amazing thing about it, is that
