L’Oreal Stars Never Fail Infalliable Lipcolour Compact Collection Review and Swatches

So off the topic of makeup but have you tried Wonka Exceptionals Fruit Marvels. OMG Loves! I nicked a tin from my friend’s purse about two weeks ago and I’ve ever after been a Fruit Marvels addict. It’s fruity crack people! First off, seriously, someone should send a memo to Willy Wonka that the website stinks. After inhaling my first tin of these bad boys I proceeded to WANT more and my search around drugstores was uneventful, I came back empty handed, no delicious candy crack to be had. So like a good techy geek I logged on to the Wonka site (www.wonka.com) and they make no mention of these around (granted, I didn’t register but still!? WTH? Where’s the deets on this candy crack!?). They mention the Wonka Exceptionals Chocolates but nada about Fruit Marvels.

Horror.

So far, haven’t had much lucky scoring anymore. Sad, irritated little pout but I hear they might be available in other flavors, that makes me want to put a little extra effort into my search.

Oh sorry you wanted deets what they taste like right? I got the Pomegranate ones and they are basically a hard shelled candy, kinda like a sucker of some sort, that are filled with a jelly, liquid-y center kinda Turkish Delight-like. Turkish Delight is one of my fav sweets of all times, buy me some and I’m yours, so this could be why Fruit Marvels appealed so much to me as they have the same sort of concept going on, sugary coated deliciousness.

Anyway, ’nuff ’bout candy and the likes. Let’s get on with the makeup eh?

L’Oreal has introduced the Stars Never Fail Lipcolour Compact Collection for Fall 2010 which includes personally selected shades from Beyonce, Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Eva Langoria Parker, Kate del Castillo, and Linda Evangelista. L’Oreal wanted to go with a diverse group of women that represented various age groups, styles, and ethnicities. I think it’s safe to say the concept of going with such a wide range of various women is really a great idea considering makeup junkies come in sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and colors, don’t we?

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss Review Update and Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss 2010 3

I gotta say I’m not particularly keen on Estee Lauder lip products simply because of the packaging and the taste. Yes, yes we are all terrible package junkies and shallow enough to admit that Estee Lauder packaging is simply NOT cute enough for most of us. I try to tame my shallow good nature when shopping EL simply because they actually have some incredibly cool products.

Now another thing….

I love many of the lip products that the brand does but the taste is a tad off putting at times. It’s a cherryish, perfum-y fruity something or another. Now the fruity is great but it’s the mix of perfume that makes me cringe.

Putting these flaws aside I must say I really fell in love with the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss. Incredibly lovely stuff. Although I already reviewed these I wanted to take a minute just to do a brief recap and some more swatches from my recent Nordstrom pre-order as I got four more shades of these bad boys and they are too gorgeous not to share.

You might fall in love with the shades I picked!
