If you told me a few days ago I’d be busy purchasing a shade of lipstick entitled Golden Grape I’d have called you a liar. I’m not a fan of vampy lip colors and Golden Grape I dunno…the golden sounds appealing but the grape part not so much!
But indeed it ended up coming home with me after I saw it on a L’Oreal Parisian Display at Walgreens (although I don’t believe the shade is actually part of this collection).
Take a look!
The new Benefit High Flyin’ Gloss Set for Holiday 2012 is my new bestest friend ever. I absolutely adore the new Benefit Ultra Glosses so I am every so delighted to bring you this Holiday set that includes every single shade of Ultra Gloss.
You need it!
Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color ($24) is a newly launched twelve shade line up of creamy matte lip colors.
Bobbi’s matte formula is a creamy, classic matte that combines moisturizing properties so the texture is light as air and glides onto lips like butter. She also promises us a full eight hours of wear.
I guess if anyone is going to matte right it would be Bobbi eh? Spoken like a true Bobbi Brown fan girl.
Available now at Nordstrom.
What’s your dream matte formula?
Any brands you turn to for the best matte formulas?
Do share them!
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28) is a newly launched liquid lipstick from the brand for Fall 2012. Hourglass created these with a matte super pigmented finish and a 14 hour contentious wear without being drying or flaking.
They had me at the non drying, flaking part because I tend to do rather poorly with matte lipstick. I’ve run across a few matte formulas I enjoy using but if I’m honest I’m always reaching for the clear gloss to wear them with.
Let’s take a look at Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick.
Diorskin Matte and Luminous Hydrating Loose Powder ($49) is available in a new limited edition shade for Holiday 2012 which is Gold Dust. The powder is already available in three shade selections and Gold Dust will be available for a limited time, I actually already purchased and own this powder in Transparent Light.
I was quite delighted they released a new shade and was even more delighted when I realized how wearable Gold Dust is. Because hey, gold and dust, well you think major shimmer. But turns out Gold Dust was a welcome replacement for my nearly finished Transparent Light.
