I can’t believe how quickly the Sephora Marsala Pantone Color of the Year Collection sold out online. One of the items that sold out quickly was the Sephora + Pantone Universe Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme Lipstick! It was rather a gorgeous shade in my opinion! Not quite marsala mind you but still lovely none the less.
If you didn’t get it for some reason due to cost you can cheap things up with this alternative.
Mind you this isn’t a dupe but the new Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Fresh Fig is a nice switch up for the Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme Lipstick! This is a nice raspberry shade! It’s not nearly as deep as the Sephora version and it’s a little bit lighter but if you missed Sephora’s version, you’re embracing the marsala trend at the moment, or just want the look on the cheap this is a nice shade to go with. It’s not nearly as brown based as Sephora’s that’s for sure but the raspberry aspect makes it a little more wearable as well. Fresh Fig kinda makes the shade a little more fun and Spring friendly! As I said it’s not a dupe for Sephora’s version but still a nice lighter more Spring forward way to wear the color!

Marsala is described as more of a wine shade but I’m noticing that the color is getting a little twisted with makeup releases and it falls more into a brown based berry shade or wine brown. Which is fine by me as I’m liking what I see brands doing with the shade! It’s surprisingly wearable and lovely.
I’m REALLY looking forward to Sephora Summer 2015 as I imagine they have something incredible planned for the shade!
What’s your favorite marsala shaded products of the moment?
