Product Musings: Clinique Long Last Glosswear Review and Swatches

Clinique+12

The Muse wonders does she need any excuse at all to discuss pink gloss with you? Naaaa. Pink glosses are the root of my girlish good nature. My new favorite shade? Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Cabana Crush.


I heart you so.

Jump ahead to muse it with me!

This is my first whirl with Clinique Long Last Glosswear and I likey so far. The formula isn’t tacky or sticky and glides on rather nicely plus it’s heaps pigmented so you can easily get away with gloss alone minus stains or lipstick under it. It’s formula is fragrant free so those sensitive to flavors or scents in their glosses can rest assured this won’t break you out. At $14 it’s also fairly inexpensive!


Now that we got pass it’s good features let me tell you about Cabana Crush!

Oh my!

Cabana Crush is a lively pink shade with golden shimmer. It has a glossy, shiny finish with a hint of fine sparkle. The shade is quite complimenting with Summer and great to pair up with a warm bronze look for a pop of pink on lips. If you’re a lover of pink this should appeal.


Overall, Musings of cool colors of pink aside, Clinique Long Last Glosswear is a rather ideal pick for a small price tag. It’s in the range of a MAC Lipglass but with a large size. If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to get glossy, shiny, pigmented lips here’s your ticket to ride.


Likey!

WANT IT: La Mer The Radiant Concealer

La+Mer+The+Radiant+Concealer

Ok, so yes I do have an obsession with quality concealer. I’ve tried so many concealers over the course of the year it’s grown from a simple obsession to a rather sick, twisted NEED to try something new. I’m always on the hunt for thee perfect concealer, the concealer that will change my life, the concealer that will end my woes of dark circles and puffy eyes forever.

Could that concealer be the new La Mer The Radiant Concealer?

At $65 this has to be the concealer that will create flawless coverage under my eyes, erase my dark circles, conceal my puffy eyes, erase my fine lines….yes…this one has to be it.

Available in three shades the treatment cream concealer optically corrects dark circles and blemishes to create a flawless finish. It instantly evens out the skin appearance while adding radiance. Gemstones capture light energy to camouflage dark circles and precious marine plant extracts help to reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness by the way it also has an SPF 25.

I’m not worthy La Mer.

I need this in my life, like now, like yesterday.

Expect some sort of review soon as I can’t control the need to snag me some of this. My excitement knows no bounds.

Available now from La Mer.

Want It: 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer

100%25+Pure+Tinted+Moisturizer

As Summer draws to a close I guess I shouldn’t worry about the need for tinted moisturizer but I can’t resist the allure of 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer.

With it’s deeply pigmented formula, SPF 20, and good for you ingredients you can see why I’m wanting it. The moisturizer is supposedly a sheer to medium coverage but as I’ve tried 100% Pure cosmetics prior to this and I’ll place my bets on it being amazingly pigmented and also if the reviews are anything to go that might just be the case.

Although an SPF of 20 is somewhat low I still fine the product intriguing especially since the humidity today is yelling at me for lighter makeup wearin’!

100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer is available at QVC, Item Number A82300 for $37.
