Labello Caregloss and Shine Review

The Muse didn’t realize how big Labello would be when she posted a review on some Labello Lipbalms a few weeks ago! Suddenly her inbox is filed with comments and questions about Labello.

Phew!

So at many a reader request I decided to do some more Labello reviews. One in particular that comes with a Muse Approval for purchase in Labello Caregloss and Shine!

Loves it!

Find out why after the jump!

There are only two shades of Labello Caregloss and Shine which does so make my life easier. As much as I love Labello it does get a bit overwhelming when it comes to the variety of a simple lip balm! Sometimes taking away options for the Muse is a good thing otherwise she’d sit there and want every single color. In this case the best shade available is Pink Star! Amen for lack of colors! For once I’m relieved I don’t have to make difficult color selections.

Labello+Caregloss+and+Shine+7

I have a slew of reasons why I absolutely adore Labello CareGloss and Shine starting with the color! Pink Star is the perfect pink that makes lips look natural and pretty. It’s just such a flattering shade of pink that makes my lips look full, pouty, and very, very pretty. The shade has a certain fun feel about it and makes me feel girly! Probably the most important factor about Labello Caregloss and Shine is the formula which allows for endless hours of wear. The formula has a slight silicon feel but remains slippery and glossy with a shiny, mirror finish. The silicon aids the gloss in wearing quite long on your lips while having a very comfortable wear without a sticky or tacky feeling. The gloss keeps lips moist and heals chapped or dry lips all while giving a beautiful touch of pink to lips! How many healing lip products do you have lying around that heals lips and offers great color?!

Doesn’t it look soooooo pretty on my lips!?

If you’re wanting a long lasting gloss with beautiful color and the ability to heal dry, chapped lips look no further as Labello Caregloss and Shine has you covered.

A tried and true favorite for the Muse. Loves it!

A few readers have asked me where to get Labello online and I’m really not an expert as I have someone who ships them over from Europe for me but I do suggest trying E-bay or these shops:

Smallflower
Amazon Shopping

Prices are sadly not retail and are nearly 50% higher than what you’d pay in Europe but Labello is such good quality it’s probably worth the increase.

Clio Spring 2009 Collection

clio+spring+2009+100

I always get rather excited when I see Clio releasing new items as they don’t do so nearly enough!

Releasing a brand new base collection along with a point collection offers many options this season for perfecting skin and creating a colorful Spring look!

Much of the new base collection embraces anti-aging with Q10 to help promote fresher, rejuvenated skin.

Clio Collagen Essence Foundation firms and lifts skin.

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+7

Clio Collagen Essence Concealer firms and lifts skin under the eyes while concealing fine lines and dark circles.

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+4

Clio Collagen Essence Pact contains an SPF 22 and collagen boosting benefits to sooth skin and regenerate.

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+8

Clio Art Lip Gloss is available in 17 shades offers a clear sparkle with Vitamin E and C.

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+5

Housed in an deco lipstick case Clio Art Lipstick is a pigmented, moisturizing formula.

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+9

Clio Lip Plumping Pencil offers a high shine finish and a formula that plumps lips for a flirty Spring Pout!

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+6

Clio Art Shadow 1.5 embraces the old Clio shadow lie but with a new twist. A trio of shades instead of single color. Use all three shades to create a perfect Spring eye look!

Clio+Spring+Collection+2009+1

Quite a nice selection of goodies from Clio for Spring 2009 me thinks. I already have a great deal of the single shadows from Clio and I’m absolutely loving the idea of trio. The base makeup all looks rather good as well particularly the concealer.

Although none of this is available within the US keep your eyes peeled and check up on Sasa as sooner or later the collection is available…a little late..but better late than not at all!

Spring Collection 2009: Pupa Plastic Shine Collection

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+9

Remember when Pupa was all about those cute little animal shaped compacts? I remember having the Angel and the Devil…actually if I think about it I probably still do somewhere in the sea of forgotten makeup items on the bottom of my closet. Remember when it was sold at Sephora!?

It’s since changed a good deal in a great way aside from the fact it’s near impossible to find stateside.

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+4

Pupa Plastic Shine Collection embraces all the modern and leaves behind all aspects of kawaii that it used to sport. The collection features some bolder shades for Spring highlighted with softer cheeks.

Pupa Baked Eye Shadow in four new shades can be used wet or dry to create a vibrant Spring look. Pink, Blue, Green and Violet all offer popping color not just for Spring but anytime!

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+3

Pupa Luminys Eyeliner
Complete your look with perfectly matched liner!

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+2

Pupa Lip Perfection Splendor
Shiny liquid lipstick available in three shocking colors to create a ultra shiny lip look to compliment your bold eye look!

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+1

Pupa Baked Blush-On Illuminating Blush
Just a touch of healthy, natural highlight to cheeks and face will finish up your look!

Pupa+Plastic+Shine+Collection+5

I really love this collection, particularly the shadows. The line should be available as of now in Singapore, Japan, and various parts of Europe. For US residents keep checking Sasa as they tend to get collections just a bit later on the release.

What do you think?

Loves it?

Girls with Attitude LipZing Review

Oooooooo come on baby make it hurt so good! Girls with Attitude LipZing has the zest and spice for making it hurt so good? Not sure if it’s good or not or maybe it’s “oh my god take me to the emergency room my lips feel like they are on fyreeeees!”


Girls With Attitude LipZing is an instant Plumping Gloss that’s a mere 5 so the Muse said “hey, something cheaper than Lip Venom! Let’s have a go!”

Girls+with+Attitude+LipZing+1

Girls+with+Attitude+LipZing+4

When I was deciding I’d have a go at LipZing I didn’t realize that the go might be me flying out my bathroom window and burying my lips and face into the nearest pile of cold snow! Ouchie this stuff stings!!

All the promises on the back of the box of achieving that Hollywood glamour lip look def does not make up for the fact that this stuff seriously tingles, stings and creates a rather uncomfortable feeling on my lips plus it’s freaking bitter as all hell if I happen to get a taste of it when licking my lips…well hello it’s on my lips I’m going to taste it sooner or later can’t we at least make it a pleasant experience when I do? K, thanks to the team at Girls with Attitude! And seriously if I’m going to burn my lips off when it’s applied can’t we at least make it a strawberry or watermelon type experience? Maybe the flavor will sooth the fire!

Girls+with+Attitude+LipZing+9

I really adore DuWop Lip Venom and although their are tears of absolute agony whenever my sister uses it I absolutely love it and never experienced the terribly stinging sensation she proclaims on and on about. Until now the only lip plumping gloss I’ve tried that worked is in fact lip venom but lord knows the award should go to LipZing! LipZing definately plumps no question about it! My lips were looking quite Amanda Lepore like…I was channeling my inner tranny girl with this stuff. I’m thinking that I can’t blame the formula so much as the irritation. Those crazy chicks with attitude probably created this so it would actually irritate the lip area and in turn that would cause all the swelling and plumping up! Hello hurtful!

My lower bottom lip was sticking out like it was in a permanent pout and hells knows I was loving the look but honestly the promise of a “gentle pleasant tingling sensation” (or so the box says) is NOT happening. Taking into consideration I’m not in the least sensitive this one is going on my do not buy again list.

nolikey

If you’re dying to experience the pleasure pain of Girls with Attitude LipZing shop it at Asos. But don’t say I didn’t worn you!

What’s your fav lip plumper?
