I am in loooooove with lipstick/gloss combos! Awhile back I raved about the Sonia Kashuk combo (read review). Now I am adoring the Senna Lip Sync in Paris Pink, which combines a sheer rose lipstick with a pink gloss. Senna describes their Lip Sync duos as follows:
The user-friendly lipstick-lipgloss duo is available in three shades that look stunning no matter how you mix and match them. A La Mode is a soft rose peach lipstick paired with a sparkling peach gloss, Stunning pairs earthy coral glowing lipstick with a golden-hued gloss and Paris Pink combines a true rose lipstick with a soft warm pink gloss.
Lip Sync formulas are flavored to taste like almond biscotti and include natural ingredients such as shea butter, sweet almond oil, green tea extract and Maxi Lip®. These conditioning and soothing elements ensure that lips stay super moist and that the color they provide won’t fade.
The Paris Pink duo is indeed quite nice. The lipstick is creamy and smooth with a great shade. It is sheer but not too sheer. Instead of matching the shade, the gloss is done in a compatible shade of pink. So either could be worn alone, or they work well together. The gloss is not at all sticky and the light flavor is pleasant.
Below are swatches from the Paris Pink set:
On the left is the lipstick, the middle is the lipstick combined with gloss, and on the right is the gloss alone.
