Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Scarlet

beautycounter scarlet lip sheer review

It took me a few weeks months, but I finally got a photo of the newest addition to the lip sheers, Scarlet. In my humble opinion, it’s by far the best one. (Also, it’s interesting to look back at those review photos pre-bangs. What’s your opinion? Bangs or no?)

Okay! Carry on! Happy Tuesday! Whoever said summer is a relaxing time of year is craaaay.

    Yes, that color is the BEST! And I love your bangs. But, I may be biased as a major bang fanatic (I am growing my similar bangs out, and I am not sure totally why.)

    Color of lipstick is really pretty.
    You look beautiful!
    Question: How long lasting are these lipsticks?

    Thank you!

    That color is beautiful, and doesn’t look that sheer actually. I like that though.

    You look younger and more stylish with bangs. :) No bangs looks very elegant though. I’m torn! Bangs take a lot of upkeep!

    You look very pretty with and without bangs! Although bangs give you a youthful look. I don’t really know…I like both!

    My preference would be no bangs and not a fan of bright colors on the lips either. Some of the earlier pics with muted tones just look more natural to me. Everyone has different preferences of course.

    Pretty lip color. I was surprised, I’m normally not a fan of bangs, but I love bangs on you.

    I know you may not be using it because of the EWG (?) ratings but is this comparable to NARS Flamenco? I bought that off your recommendation years back and looooooove it but I think it’s discontinued so I’m trying to find a dupe.

      Yes, Christina! The shade is very similar – kind of a strawberry red. However, the Beautycounter is much creamier than Flamenco, which is a total plus. Sometimes, I felt like Flamenco could feel a little dry on my lips.

    I like both looks. It’s nice to have both options. I’m also waiting for the day you decide to go short. :P

    Sarah, how are you feeling these days? I’ve wondered if your lyme disease has lessened.

    Beautiful lip color and I love your bangs. So much so that I got some myself.

    Keep the bangs. Forever. Never ever ever ever ever grow them out!
