Honey Lipstick - Smashbox

Honey lipstick is currently one of my favourites - Its the perfect soft, warm yet natural lipstick shade.  I could definitely see this colour becoming one of those shades that reaches 'holy grail' status in my makeup bag!!!

I tried to create a makeup look that is consitent with a Soft Classic look - I also put on a sweater that would pick up on that warm 'honey' feel of the lipstick:

I started this look by mixing pore-fessional primer, HD 125 foundation and Laura Mercier's #4 foundation (which has a honey tone to it) - I than applied this combination to my face.  I then used Bobbi Brown 'Warm Beige' concealer and finished with MAC's Refined Golden Bronzer. 
Eyes:  I started with Navajo as a base (Bobbi Brown), Soba from lid to crease (MAC), Teddy eyeliner (MAC) with NARS Begali smudged into the upper lashline and a Brown-Black Mascara
Blush:  I used Bobbi Brown 'Tawny' and Make Up For Ever #70 as a pop of colour
Lips: Bronzelle lipliner by Lancome with Smashbox 'Honey' Lipstick!!!

Beautiful! I'm a soft summer and I think the color of your sweater is also in my palette. I love it.

Would you be so kind as to swatch all the soft autumn lipsticks you have acquired on your hand or arm - like KarlaSugar style - so that we can compare the colors side by side??? I'm not close to a dept store and want to order a couple online - but don't know which to get - it seems like you have started a good stash of SA makeup items. Thanks so much!

You look divine in these photos. That tan sweater is just so gorgeous, and you are wearing it -- not the other way around.
