As many of you may know, Nordstrom has a Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo makeup collaboration, exclusively available on their website. I went into the store and was pleasantly surprised to find that the collection was in store! I made out with one lip product, the Lip Lights in Modern Muse, as I was initially going in there for something else.

|A light for… reapplying in dark alleys?|
My skin type
My lips are pretty dry due to my near lifelong dependency on lip balm.
What it’s supposed to do
From the brand: A limited-edition comfortable, long-wearing liquid lipstick that dries matte with an intense, transfer-proof color payoff.
What I like about it
I really like the formula; it reminds me a lot of the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains, one of the most superior liquid lipstick formulas. It stays on for hours and hours but lets up a bit after eating a greasy meal. However, reapplying isn’t so necessary as the color is opaque in two coats for my naturally pigmented, full lips. I also like the mirror, and the idea of the light, as well the shade.
What could be better
All I can complain about is the light. I’ve not been in a situation where I am using this lipstick in the dark, but in the natural daylight the light on the lipstick applicator is distracting. It points directly at my lips and makes it a little bit hard to get color in the curves and crevices. The Karl head on the top of the lipstick is a little bit obnoxious but doesn’t affect anything so 🤷
