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.
