So off the topic of makeup but have you tried Wonka Exceptionals Fruit Marvels. OMG Loves! I nicked a tin from my friend’s purse about two weeks ago and I’ve ever after been a Fruit Marvels addict. It’s fruity crack people! First off, seriously, someone should send a memo to Willy Wonka that the website stinks. After inhaling my first tin of these bad boys I proceeded to WANT more and my search around drugstores was uneventful, I came back empty handed, no delicious candy crack to be had. So like a good techy geek I logged on to the Wonka site (www.wonka.com) and they make no mention of these around (granted, I didn’t register but still!? WTH? Where’s the deets on this candy crack!?). They mention the Wonka Exceptionals Chocolates but nada about Fruit Marvels.
So far, haven’t had much lucky scoring anymore. Sad, irritated little pout but I hear they might be available in other flavors, that makes me want to put a little extra effort into my search.
Oh sorry you wanted deets what they taste like right? I got the Pomegranate ones and they are basically a hard shelled candy, kinda like a sucker of some sort, that are filled with a jelly, liquid-y center kinda Turkish Delight-like. Turkish Delight is one of my fav sweets of all times, buy me some and I’m yours, so this could be why Fruit Marvels appealed so much to me as they have the same sort of concept going on, sugary coated deliciousness.
Anyway, ’nuff ’bout candy and the likes. Let’s get on with the makeup eh?
L’Oreal has introduced the Stars Never Fail Lipcolour Compact Collection for Fall 2010 which includes personally selected shades from Beyonce, Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Eva Langoria Parker, Kate del Castillo, and Linda Evangelista. L’Oreal wanted to go with a diverse group of women that represented various age groups, styles, and ethnicities. I think it’s safe to say the concept of going with such a wide range of various women is really a great idea considering makeup junkies come in sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and colors, don’t we?
Clarins says the first objective of a lipstick is the attract attention with its color and shine but they failed to mention elegant packaging draws the eye as well. You won’t be shy about whipping out the new Clarins Rouge Prodige True Colour & Shine Lipstick from your purse for touch up as it comes housed in a simple yet lovely gold case. The second objective of a lipstick is to remain flawless throughout the day….does Rouge Prodige do the trick?
When the makeup gods created the beauty world they also created matte which is kinda the equivalent of Hell on many levels. The makeup gods figured that creating velvety shades of color that blended easily should rightfully have an equally bad formula which didn’t blend so great, had awful shades such as taupe and nude brown. Thus matte came to exist because good can never exist without evil.
Oh, and afterward, the makeup gods had to rest because they tried blending with mattes and it exhausted the hell out of them that’s actually when Sunday came to exist but that’s a story for another day.
Lancome Color Design Matte Lipstick was recently introduced…
And boy was I worried. Matte lipstick is almost as scary as matte eyeshadow.
Have you experienced the joys of Maybelline Salsa Sun yet? I’m so loving on this release. Maybelline did a really nice job with the colors and it really has a great Summer-y vibe. The collection is available for a limited time and consists of a color and a lip release. My first time around with the collection I ended up having to visit a few stores to locate it as the displays were pretty picked over but I’m noticing drugstores have started restocking and putting out new displays, so if you want it, go get it now.
A few days ago I showed you a few of the Maybelline Salsa Sun Lipglosses and today I hauled out the limited edition Sensational Lipsticks released with this collection.
Call me no nonsense but I honestly don’t see the point of anti-aging cosmetics. Granted, I am obsessed with anti-aging skincare but extending it to my cosmetics seems pointless.
Prestige Cosmestic Color Treat Anti-Aging Lipstick contains some sort of anti-aging technology the point of which is lost on me. Can’t we just have a cool lipstick sans bells and whistles please?
Yeah, I guess I’m kinda no nonsense when it comes to lipstick.
