Good news for those who have been stalking Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks ($16) they have finally made their way to our side of the pond. These released in the UK several months ago and just recently arrived at Sephora and Sephora.com
Of course, I’m hyped. Chubby pencil anything and I’m on it like white on rice particularly ones by Soap & Glory since I have such brand love for them.
Let’s take a look!
Dior’s Summer 2013 Makeup Collection brings us three new, limited edition Jelly Lip Pens. Yes, tinted lip pencils from Dior! The Dior Jelly Lip Pen ($26) are a chubby tinted pencil with a moisturizing formula and a shiny finish much like Clinique’s Chubby Balms.
I was when I heard Dior was doing these. I said it before and I’ll say it again I love these damn things. Seriously, it’s one trend I haven’t yet grown tired of. And lord knows at this point you think I would have as the market is heavily saturated with a ton of variations.
How does Dior’s stand against them?
Take a look!
Mark is right on trend with their new Color Me In Lip Crayons. Chubby lip pencils have gotten a big push for Spring/Summer and the new Mark Color Me In Lip Crayon joins the ranks in three shades.
I think Mark loses a few points as each of these are $12. Ouch. I think of Mark as a lower end brand that should have prices competitive with the drugstore or perhaps a smidge higher. Considering Revlon, Covergirl, and a slew of other drugstore brands have their own version of these tinted lip crayons at a far lower price (especially during a sale), Mark cuts themselves out of the equation slightly as you might second guess splurging.
Price doesn’t account for quality. If they are amazing that would definitely make me lean towards dishing out that twelve bucks faster.
The new Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick that I reviewed yesterday launched today along with the new Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipliners!
I’m not really a lipliner girl, are you? I typically skip over it but if you’re lips are drier, aging, or you’re using a lipstick that likes to road trip around your face lipliner is always an excellent way to keep it locked into place and prevent it from feathering.
Take a peek!
Launched with Laura Mercier’s Summer 2013 Collection her new Lip Crayon comes in three shade selections, hello can we get more shades of this fabulous pencil?
Sadly, these are around for a very limited time so if you want ‘em best grab them now while the going is good.
Take a peek!
I’m not sure what I expected from the new NARS Satin Lip Pencil Collection but what I got was a surprise. I think I thought maybe they’d have a semi-matte pigmented formula.
Turns out they are SO much more.
Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stains have launched in eight shades for Spring 2013 for a mere five bucks each. I know, we have plenty of glossy pencils to choose from and another version might be a smidge overwhelming but at five bucks each with a lightweight, moisturizing formula I’d say you need ONE more at least.
Take a peek!
Sephora has introduced their own line of Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencils with their new Pastel Pop Spring 2013 Collection. Best part about these is they are near to drugstore brand prices at ten bucks a piece.
They are sadly limited edition though and come in a smaller variety of shades (a mere three le sigh!) but you might want to pick them up before they disappear.
Ahh the Glinda Palette! Glinda is one of two new Urban Decay Oz inspired palettes that the brand recently launched in collaboration with the Disney film, Oz the Great and Powerful.
I recently reviewed the Theodora Palette for you and must say she’s more my speed. I love the Glinda palette but she’s a more lighter variation which will work well on paler skin tones or those with fairer hair and eyes.
Take a look!
I’m not a lipliner girl to be honest but if I were the new Milani Color Statement Lipliners would be my best friend.
Available in eight shades for as little as $3.99 each these dense yet creamy textured liners are the perfect pair up for the new Milani Color Statement Lipstick!
Urban Decay has launched two new palettes inspired by the movie Oz the Great and Powerful. The Urban Decay Theodora Palette ($49) was a fast favorite for me as I’m a brunette who loves nude, natural shades of eyeshadow. Glinda would be most suitable for blond, blue eyed ladies. But really, do we have to choose? Most of us probably feel we can rock either palette and I’m in complete agreement.
I just seem to favor Theodora at the moment though, here are my thoughts about her.
I recently purchased the new Khroma Beauty Au Natural Nude Lip Set at my local Harmons. As you know Khroma Beauty is the Kardashian’s new makeup collection.
Before I start my review I just wanted ask everyone to be a little kinder in the comments. I don’t really love deleting anyone’s comment but when I’m seeing stuff like “OMGZ I wanna punch the Kardashian’s in the face…!” I kinda feel forced to step in and delete the comment. I don’t love the Kardashian’s, I don’t watch their show, I don’t endorse them, I’m not a fan, etc…etc…However, I don’t think it’s fair to attack them “just because”. Seriously, who has the time to go around wasting energy on hating people you don’t even know? Chill, breath…don’t be annoyed by crazy celebs. You have better things to do with your time my friends
Now if you like nothing at all about these three girl’s that’s fine but you have to admit that there makeup is always flawless. At least I think so. One thing I’d really love to master is Kim’s nude lip look. One of my favorite nude glosses is Korres Cherry Lipgloss in Nude 33. That’s most definitely my perfect nude lip look! But the idea of actually achieving something as great as Kim’s nude lip look is mighty tempting which is why I picked up this kit.
Did it work?
Hard Candy All Glossed Up Shockingly Glossy Lip Pencil ($6) are a new range of pencil lip colors that were launched with Hard Candy’s Fall 2012 Collection.
Chubby lip pencils particularly balm or tinted gloss formulas are all the rage at the moment so if Hard Candy masters the formula it could prove a potentially nice budget pick!
Take a look!
Tarte LipSurgence Collector’s Set in It’s a Wonderful Life is a QVC Exclusive Set for Holiday 2012. No worries if you love this set and dislike shopping QVC as Tarte has a few renditions of it available at a variety of locations such as Sephora and Ulta.
This set features five full size Tarte Lip Surgence Natural Lip Tints in a variety of shades for $34. It’s quite a deal considering all of the tints are full size and should you buy one it would set you back $24. So for an extra $10 you can get four more tints!
The MAC Primped Out Holiday 2012 Collection features an array of lip and eyeshadow bags. There are two limited edition Lip Look Bags in this collection which are $39.50 each and feature two full size lip products and one mini.
Mmm Holiday Makeup world of more for less you might find these bags a little lacking but that’s up for debate.
