I was literally jumping for joy when Ruby told me I could have Cary. As I mentioned before quite a few of the Lips and Boys are actually repromotes of existing shades. Cary happens to be Casablanca which Ruby has already, I gladly took him off her hands.
Cary is one of those work friendly shades for me. Dark enough for it not to wash me out but sedate enough so I won't get into trouble at work. Cary or Casablanca is a medium warm rose shade very much like Tom Ford's Lip Color Matte in Pussycat but without the shine and a tad lighter.
Here are comparison swatches of (left to right) Cary, Indian Rose and Pussycat in different lighting.
Cary is a lip colour that I will get plenty of mileage from. Cary might not be flashy or sexy but he is stable, reliable and safe. We all need a guy like that in our lives.
To recap on the formula, it is a creamy satin that is opaque at one swipe. It is not the most moisturising lipstick but it does not dry my lips out. It wears comfortable and gives me about 3 to 4 hours of wear time.
Unfortunately you can't find this in Singapore anymore but you can order it online at Nordstrom.
