Prescriptives Summer 2009: Best Colors of the Season


Back in April I told you about the Prescriptives Summer 2009 Color Collection: Exhilarating.

My favorite products of the collection are the Exhilarating Lip Glosses. They’re guava flavored and come in three flattering shades: Mango, Pink Grapefruit and Guava.

Makeup Bag intern Monica tried the Papaya Exhilarating Lipcolor and was pleasantly surprised with its shine and shimmer:

“I’ll admit I approached this lipstick with a bit of trepidation (read: fear!), as it looked like a relatively loud coral in the tube. I am relieved to share that the color is indeed coral, but also surprisingly wearable. What I was afraid would look orangey turned out to be a true, warm coral with enough pink to counteract any possible ruddiness. The consistency was excellent, offering extremely comfortable wear and soft shine and just a hint of shimmer. So pretty for summer!”

I also have been wearing the Limited-Edition Calyx Sheer Exhilaration nearly every day here in Hawaii. The fruity scent is light and refreshing, a perfect complement to the humid Hawaiian air.

  • I tried this lipgloss in Guava (the green one) and it was completely sheer on. It smelled like Guava but didn’t taste like anything at all. I loved it!

    PS- Love Monica’s reviews. She words things so wonderfully.
