At the end of my visit with Kleins Perfumery last Saturday I picked up a few more bits and bobs and Bite's Zinfandel happened to be one of them. I was so happy with how well Velvet performed, I felt inclined to add one more colour to my collection.
Zinfandel, as Scott described it yesterday, "is a pinkish red with a scant of orange." I would've just said a lighter shade of red :) After all, he is the wordsmith of this kinship. Sephora thinks it looks like "electric coral."
Before swatching Zinfandel I attempted to pull the cap off, I struggled a bit and then off it came with the product stuck to the inside of the cover. Zinfandel pulled away from its base during transit - oh no! In that moment I realised I had a bit of a lemon on my hands. Should I go back or should I keep it?
Instead I made some lemonade. I carefully grasped the lipstick and gently slid it back into its vessel, while hoping with repeated use Zinfandel would glom back onto the base *fingers crossed*
Zinfandel wore beautifully all day and faded down to a light berry red stain as the day progressed. During those six hours, I ate breakfast and lunch and drank a vanilla latte and an orange juice. The first hour of wear is the tricky spot because it kisses off and appears on silverware, napkins and drinking glasses - you've been warned. The other amazing thing about Zinfandel is it didn't dry out my lips; I didn't apply chapstick until I went to bed last night.
