Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Patisserie Custard Lip Pot 2

Jill Stuart Custard Lip Pot1

The Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection is limited edition collection released for Fall 2012. It’s inspired by a French pastry shop and the packaging, shade names, and scent of the products all bring to mind decadent pastries and desserts.

The Jill Stuart Custard Lip Pots are pretty much spot on for that inspiration as they look like little cups of custard. These were released in five shades and both the colors and product themselves are available for a limited time with this collection.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick 1

I realize I shared my love of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick in a recent review but I hauled a few more shades so I thought I’d do some more swatches and a little follow up post about these.

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick

A reader recently mentioned hauling Cotton Candy Pink (believe that’s the shade name) and didn’t like the formula at all. I personally loved all the shades I tried so I was surprised. But actually, she’s right, the consistency on some of the shades is a bit different and I ran into issues with Blushing Sequin as it wasn’t as lovely as other shades I owned and loved.

Soap & Glory A Great Kisser Review & Swatches

Soap Glory A Great Kisser Balm

Soap & Glory A Great Kisser is just too cute. It might stem from my teen years of makeup lust but balms in tins are my downfall even though I associate them with germs, bacteria, and all kinds of grossness.

But who can resist a lip balm in a cute vintage tin?

People, it’s freaking hard, Imma tell you I tried to resist, truly…!

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick Stain Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Stain Swatches 3

Hey, wait, why did I always think that the It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Stain was a clear balm sort of formula?

How wrong was I!

The shade Je Ne Sais Quoi always appeared a clear balm to me so I never indulged. Surprised was I when I got a sample to try out and it actually turned into one of those perfect shades of pink.

It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick is a balm, a gloss, and a stain all in one.

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm Review and Swatches

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm 221

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm are a four shade lippie launch that is part of the Clarins Summer 2012 Collection.

These are actually a little different from the Euro launch in the fact they are a glossy stick with a color core versus the European release which was a completely translucent lip balm style formula like Maybelline Pop Sensational Sticks.
