Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition Review and Swatches

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition 1

I imagine that Milani HD Advanced Lip Color is the brand’s take on Dior Serum De Rouge Luminous Color Lip Treatment. Who doesn’t like a drugstore dupe right?

This is newly released and should be popping up at your local drugstore at the moment.

Is it worth the haul?

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?

Milani Cosmetics

Morning!

I hit up the drugstore yesterday to see what I missed while I was away and was surprised to see some new offerings from Milani. It could be considered Milani Fall 2010 in some ways but since it includes bronzer maybe we should consider it a bit of Summer? Whatcha think?

Anyone see the new selections?

No?

No problem-o, I took piccies!
