>>This post features a product that was provided by the company<<A few weeks ago, when I was in Barney's, the SURRATT counter manager very generously offered me a Lipslique in Hevyn as a gift. This shade was missing from the counter when I went to swatch all the colors, so I hope this is a helpful post.
I'm enjoying the texture, finish and feel of these lipsticks from SURRATT. Made in Japan, there is no scent, no weird taste and feels great on my lips. I was told that Hevyn is named so for Kevyn Aucoin (replace the K with the H, get it?), who is a great influence on Troy Surratt. It is an understated color that I think would look great on a lot of people, but I'm pretty 100% sure that it is made especially for me. Yes, how many people can say that they found a color that is completely made for them. Okay, while the SURRATT team made not have intended it at the time, but this color is actually my natural lip color.
I'm not even saying that is a mlbb (my lips but better) color. It's actually my lip color. That slightly rosy, mauve cool color? That's me. Alright, alright, stop yelling at me. While my lip color is not so naturally even all around, and not nearly as lustrous it's pretty darn close and a wee bit darker.
here as well as my more detailed post on Perfectionniste here.
Seems like the closest color match to Hevyn is By Terry's Flirty Rosy, which is touch darker as well as having a more satin matte finish. In actuality, I prefer the formula of Hevyn, but if you own Flirty Rosy, or maybe even Keshiaka Creamy Glow from Suqqu, you may have a very similar color. (EDIT: argh! I've mislabelled Keshiaka Suqqu Creamy Glow as Umegasumi in the picture. SORRIES. I really need reading glasses!)
