lyon is a matte muted rosy plum. in the pan it looks much darker than how it wears on my skin. the color is such a soft rosy shade so it is very easy to wear. you don't need much product to make it show up, i have been using this shade since i first started blogging (over 2 years) and it doesn't even have a slight dip in the pan!
no different than the rest of cargo's line: very soft and easy to blend. even being a darker shade than what most are used to, lyon is surprisingly easy to apply. i dont have to be careful when i apply this shade.
lyon is a much more muted color compared to the rest of my brighter berry family of blushes. it is definitely a red based plum. it is quite rosy despite being such a soft shade. it is very flattering.
lyon is a shade i reach for most often in the fall. i tend to love wearing it with plummy or grey eye looks as well as black clothing. i recently went to new york for over a week and i wore this shade the entire trip! i couldnt stop wearing it, it was so flattering for this time of year and it went with most of my outfits. i think this shade would flatter all skin tones as it is pigmented enough for deep tones and soft enough of a color for pale tones. if you love matte shades and are looking for a flattering fall blush shade with great texture, lyon is a great fit.
until next time when i talk about cargo tonga...
