I couldn’t resist the new Shu Uemura Lip Duo & Tints from the Shu Uemura Takano Abracadabra Fantasy Collection for Holiday 2010. I admit I had my doubts they wouldn’t work because my lips are pigmented plus they just appeared very nude (I can’t do nudes) but I wanted to try them out anyway since the promo images really made them look darling.
Did they work?
Ahh Chanel spicing things up this year with their Les Tentations de Chanel Holiday Collection 2010. It doesn’t quite meet the traditional standards in our Holiday makeup world does it?
Delicate shades of brown, pops of pink, and hints of bronze make up Chanel Holiday 2010 and one gets more of a vibe of Spring than Holiday at first glance. But try it out for size and flushed cheeks and a fierce smoky brown eye later and you’ll agree this does indeed speak the language of Winter.
Did you haul it?
What did you think?
Sorry for the the interrupted flow of service today. You might have experienced some lag, slowness, or a 503 or two this afternoon. My server has been kinda touch and go the last few hours but I think it’s back and in working order again. See? Hotlinking kills! MUA’ers are legendary for this…grrrr!
Anyway, I apologize for the problems and hopefully I’m back up and running smoothly.
Now, last of the Clarins Holiday Collection 2010 for you today. I’ve already reviewed the highlighter and the powder which I simply adored and now for the eye and lip products.
As you know the new Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick was available as a special preview at select retailers online recently.
The official line up is in stores December 6th and will feature 44 shades of this new lipstick which sports a formula that not only cover lips in luxurious color but also treats them so you’ll notice smoother, gorgeous lips in as little as 7 days.
I’ve used one a few days here are my thoughts….
After playing around with the Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set Volume 1 I decided that I would never make proper use out of it so I took a big breath and I returned it. I’m quite proud of myself for doing this since I adored the packaging and design of this gift set but I knew in my heart I’d have never used some of the lipstick shades included in the set.
So what did I do?
I grabbed full sizes of Cathedral and Lolita, the two shades in the set that did work for me!
