Dr. Hauschka lipstick #09, Dolce (pics)

indoors + gratuitous earring shot :)

This is more muted and natural than Dr. Hauschka #01 Amoroso:

Where Amoroso is a coral red without shimmer, Dolce is a warm, somewhat shimmery, muted (yet not overly brown) rose color. In the outdoors shot, I applied a bit more than I'd normally wear. The indoors shot depicts it more accurately imo.

This is good for an all-around work color, like a warmer version of the berry-toned rosiness of MAC Sophisto:

The sort of lighter quality, slight shimmer, all-around rosiness...good for situations where you don't want people mentally saying, "LIPSTICK!" when they look at you. (Such as working in male-dominated fields, where you don't want to look too "fluffy.")

Plus it's nice and moisturizing.

Wow, you have so much sunlight, even in northern CA. It's pretty chilly here, actually.

I like it! I've been gravitating towards warmer colors recently too, maybe its just because fall is in the air around here.

I agree with Dain about all that sunlight! Its still quite warm here, but the light is starting to change, its lost that stark,bright-white summer quality that's in your picture. I wonder how much further south you are from me?

Love those earrings! I'm hoping to get to the craft store soon and see what I can find to get started with.

Yeah, we don't get four seasons here, it's closer to two. The summer tends to be warm and rain. The winter is cold and rainy, but no snow. Occasionally it freezes but it's usually just the few nights, and a light freeze.

This summer was similar to San Francisco weather though--cold. The mornings were foggy. Sometimes it cleared by afternoon, other times it was dreary all day, and even rained some.

But now, it's hotter and sunnier than it was the better part of the summer.

Oh, definitely check out the craft store! I got my start at a craft store. Bead stores have better supplies...etailers have even better supplies...but craft stores have some of everything, it's a great place to get your feet wet.
