YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain Review & Swatches

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain 8

My first experience with lipstain/cheek stain was when I purchased the Schick Stick off of HSN about 10 years ago (it might have been even be longer than 10 years ago).

Yeah, the Schick Stick, sounds like a razor to me. But actually it was a cheek and lip stain housed in a tube with a sponge applicator. It was created by the super friendly, utterly gracious, and oh so gorgeous Morgen Schick (she e-mailed me randomly a few years ago just to say hello and thanks for liking her product, I was gobsmacked to say the least).

Morgen, to this very day, still sells her brilliant cheek stain/lipstain and it remains a fond favorite of mine.

Lip and Cheek Stains have evolved so much though. New packaging, formulas, etc…where as before the market was lacking, now the market is saturated with all kinds of stains.

I think one of the main complaints about stains is the irony that they have such a long wear time on cheeks but go drier on lips and sometimes don’t wear as well.

The new Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain is testimony that hope is still alive for a lip stain that wears all day with a hydrating formula.

Take a look!

Pixi Magic Tink Tint 1

Are you getting excited for the Pixi Glow Collection? I am!

Dude, it’s a Disney collaboration, what’s not to get excited ’bout here right?

Pixi teamed up with Disney and our darling Tinkerbell to create a gorgeous little collection of Spring goodies that Tink herself would probably squeal over.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the collection early but you’ll be able to get your greedy little hands on it soon from Target.com and Target.

Let’s take a little peek at the Pixi Magic Tink Tint ($16)!

Maybelline Super Stay Stain Gloss 1

Truly I appreciate all the big beauty boasts. Longer lashes up to 100x the length, 165 hour foundation wear, 48 hour lipstick color, etc…etc…

But….

They get more and more ridiculous. Obviously drugstore brands have some seriously misleading claims.

So is the case with the new Maybelline Super Stay Stain Gloss. 10 hours of wear? More like 10 minutes.

Bare Minerals A Toast to Tints Review, Swatches, Photos

Bare Minerals A Toast to Tints 001

A few days some of Bare Escentuals Holiday 2011 Collection popped into my mail box. One of the items included in the envelope that I tore open with my teeth was the new A Toast to Tints Trio.

Now…I wasn’t really reading at the time, I was merely foaming at the mouth, teeth bared, and OMG so excited about NEW MAKEUPZ so I didn’t read the box on these tints, I simply ripped them out of their packaging, and started applying to my lips like a mad woman. Promptly after I scrunched up my face and mouthed, “Ewww! WTH?!”

I wasn’t particularly keen on the formula…
