Dior Addict Lipstick Palace & Jet Set Review & Swatches

Dior Addict Lipstick Palace Jet Set 1

Dior Addict Lipstick has improved with age. I recall my first Addict Lipstick purchase when it originally launched, I remember being disappointed because I wanted something slicker, shinier….last year Dior reformulated Addict Lipstick and the improvements are very noticeable. They took something that was good and made it great.

The Dior Summer 2012 Collection will be launching shortly and with it three limited edition shades of Addict Lipstick. Two of these shades embrace the orange, peachy trend you’ll be seeing for the season. The shade as we discussed a million times already, does prove difficult to wear, but both Palace and Jet Set, the new Addict Lipstick shades, prove easy to wear and allow you to enjoy the trend without having to contend with how you can wear a loud, vibrant shade of orange on your lips.

Clarins Enchanted Collection Summer 2012

Clarins Enchanted Collection Summer 2012 3

Is there any time I’m not enchanted by Clarins? Clarins Enchanted is a fitting name for the Summer 2012 Collection if ever there was one don’t you agree?

Much to my delight I share news with you today that finally after two seasons of seeing them released in the UK, Clarins has brought their Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm to the US market.

I’m so excited and I know many of you will be too. Beauty junkies have been waiting for this for a while. Clarins has consecutively included the balms in at least two Summer Collections launched in the UK but they never made it to our market for some reason.

This year, Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm launches in an array of colors with the Clarins Enchanted Collection for Summer 2012.

Happy days!

“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant,” said Christian Dior.

Inspired by the art de vivre of the French Riviera, the Dior Croisette Collection for Summer 2012 combines the peace of the French countryside with the splendor of Saint Tropez. These locations have always been a prolific source of inspiration for Christian Dior. From Dior’s first swimsuit collections and seaside fashion creations in the Fifties to the current Cruise Collections, the French Riviera also embodies the brand’s most daring, fresh and colorful lines today.

Giorgio Armani Rouge Sheer Lipstick for Summer 2012

Giorgio Armani Rouge Sheer Lipstick for Summer 2012 13

Dear Wil Wheaton,

I have your Kindle, I’m holding it hostage at my house. It may turn up on E-bay if you don’t send a photo of yourself applying the new Giorgio Armani Rouge Sheer lipstick. Hey, if you can collate papers for the bloody Bloggress you can apply lipstick for me.

Snap to it, k, thanks.

Love you lots.

Tell me you wouldn’t love an image of Wil Wheaton applying lipstick possibly in a kilt? I can dig that. Too damn bad I don’t REALLY have his Kindle, I imagine I can dominate the geeky universe with that tool under my belt.

Chances are we won’t get the image but fan girl’s all around the world can hope.

But about Giorgio Armani Rouge Sheer Lipstick, I need ‘em.
