I’ve been on a mint kick lately. Mint eyeshadow? Yes. Mint nail polish? Yes. Mint eyeliner? YES! Finally I decided to get my first “abnormal” lip color and figured of course it should be mint! “Chlorosis” by Portland Black Lipstick Company is the perfect color. Not too muddy and not too neon like some other brands I’ve seen.
The chapstick-like tube that it comes in may be disconcerting to some, but I actually found it really easy to apply an even application with. Plus, it’s something different and I personally think the packaging is super cute!
The color applied best for me with a little bit of lip balm underneath and on clean, exfoliated lips. It applied smooth and evenly, but be careful not to get it on your teeth after you’ve finished applying. It wears for about 3-4 hours with no major fading. Because it’s slightly more of a glossy finish than matte it doesn’t stay put very well when eating or drinking, but I’m likely not going to be wearing this out to dinner anytime soon. This color is probably more of a party look for most people, including me, though it’s definitely an awesome color to have in the collection!
