Albeit by Anthropologie seems to have been released in the fall of last year and comes in eight shades, as far as I can gather. I've only seen the three carried in the store I frequent, these two plus a soft pink called Peony that I think has "my lips but better" potential, but the other colors available online look intriguing at the very least.
Persimmon is a rich red orange with a mostly matte finish. In spite of the finish, these both have a pleasingly creamy texture with only a slight drying feeling going into the fourth hour of wear. I think it makes a great pop of color this season, as everyone is loving orange, without going overboard for those who look a little off with neon orange makeup. ::points to self::
Vermillion definitely has perfect red potential, gracefully balancing between warm and cool undertones. It applies beautifully straight from the bullet, and is a true red that doesn't look vampy at all (I like to save those reds for more adventurous hours).
Throw in the classy retro gold casing and I think we've got ourselves some winners. I wouldn't be surprised to find myself reaching for these babies all year round.
