Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Matte For the Holidays!

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color

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.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks

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.

Diorskin Matte and Luminous Hydrating Loose Powder in #431 Gold Dust Review & Swatches

Diorskin Matte and Luminous Hydrating Loose Powder

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.

Take a look!

Dior Diorific Long Wearing True Color Lipstick Review & Swatches

Dior Diorific Long Wearing True Color Lipstick 47

Dior has released four limited edition shades of Long-Wearing True Color Lipstick with their new Grand Bali Collection for Holiday 2012. At a glance I thought the lipsticks were available in a limited edition packaging but actually they are the same dumbbell shape of the original Diorific Lipsticks but the entire tube is gold versus the original blue and gold design.

These are elegant lipsticks with a high quality formula that contains an intense color pay off. The price reflects that at $36 per lipstick.

Let’s take a look!
