I picked up two of the Color Vibrance Lipsticks thanks to the awesome CVS BOGO offer going on at the moment (Buy One, Get One Free) and I like them, alot. That’s saying something about drugstore lipsticks as I always have issues with lippies from my local drugstore.
I rarely consider backing up shades since my stash is large and it’s absurd to buy duplicate products but two shades from the upcoming MAC Me Over! Collection has me rethinking the cardinal rule of never buying the same color twice.
geoGirl is a new line of cosmetics launching at Walmart (it’s already available at some Walmart locations) for Fall 2011. This collection will actually be replacing the old Mary Kate and Ashley Cosmetic Collection and features natural ingredients and is free from parabens. The line is meant for 8 to 12 year old girls (tweens) but there are a few pieces that might capture the eye of older makeup junkies.
I personally loved the Kewl Magic Face Refresher and I’m no where near that age group ha!
Don’t ever say that Bobbi doesn’t have a master plan. She’s sitting in her office right now clapping her hands together in glee that she’s overtaken not only your Fall makeup wardrobe but also your Summer one.
Yup, master plan peeps!
The new Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Collection for Fall 2011 is amazing and it’s on counters now. Best part? All the colors will fit right into your Summer regime and create rich, bronze-y looks for the warm weather. And as Fall nears, you’ll be taking full advantage of the richer, warmer hues for your autumn makeup routine.
Let’s take a look at one of the two new Tortoise Shell Eye Palettes that Bobbi created for this collection!
Matte…..the evilness in my otherwise perfect makeup world. Matte is such a damn difficult formula for me to get a handle on. Be it eyeshadow or lipstick, I just can’t do the matte thang!
I picked up some Bourjois So Delicate Lip Creams several months ago on ASOS even though the formula is all about the matte but curious I was so I snatched these up and called it a day. Why, oh, why did Bourjois pull out of the US? In other great news it’s now available in Canada…!
Let’s take a look at these and see if the matte agrees with me!
After reading Romeo and Juliet in 8th grade our English teacher proceeded to show us what I deemed the ultimate reenactment of the play, the 1968 film starring Olivia Hussey (SWING! Girl crush!).
I could have been deemed a geeky 13 year old because of the odd romance I had with Shakespeare but if in any way I was unsure of that love and passion for the poet it was easily erased as soon as I saw that faithful film. There are so many parts in the film that I love but Mercutio’s death always remains a scene stealer for me. John McEnery passionately shouting, “A plague on both your houses….” ah it’s the stuff of pure legend.
Speaking of plagues….I swear liquid cream lipsticks are an utter plague. They look awful on me particularly because my lips tend to be dry and cracked in the colder weather and adding liquid lipstick on top…well, it’s gross looking to say the least. Plus is it me or does liquid lipstick have a guns will travel personality going on? Because I swear I’ll put it on my lips in the morning and within 20 minutes it’ll travel from my lips to my upper lip, to my chin, and onto my cheek and let’s not forget on my teeth. It has a life of its own…like the blob! A living, breathing lipstick!
Bare Escentuals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor is a new cream liquid lipstick from the brand released for Spring. I actually purchased a kit from QVC back in November that had a shade included…..here’s some more thoughts on Pretty Amazing Lipcolor and a few swatches!
Guerlain Rouge Automatique will be available this April (I’ve seen them on counter already wink!) and is Guerlain’s first capless lipstick. Fun times, a slide up and down lippie, it appeals to my inner gadget girl dontcha know!
The packaging isn’t the only appeal but the long lasting hold formula also had me highly curious.
My run in with the lip products released with the Etude House Miss Tangerine Collection is turning into a downward spiral of bad picks. I really was hopeful that some of the orange-y shades would prove wearable but sadly, so far, it’s just not happening for me.
The collection is a release of several products themed around the orange trend that takes hold of us almost every Spring/Summer from popular Korean brand Etude House.
Let’s take a look at some of the Miss Tangerine VIP Girl Dear Darling Lips and see if these shades worked for me!
Oh dear me, I’m terribly sorry MAC I think I underestimated your Sheen Supreme Lipsticks! It’s just that the name put me off for a second and they looked creamy…I run for the hills when it comes to a cream finish.
More Etude House Miss Tangerine coming your way today! Hope you’re enjoying the coverage of this beauty abroad collection! Today I was messing around with the Etude House Miss Tangerine LUCIdarling Fantastic Rouge. LUCIdarling Fantastic Rouge is not a new product but the packaging has been revamped and two new shades have been released themed around the Miss Tangerine Collection.
The main shade, as you may have guessed, is a tangerine orange and the other a mod-ish pink. They are paired up with the looks that you can create with the new eyeshadow quads from the collection.
