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!
As you know from my prior Musings Korean Brand, Etude House has released Miss Tangerine which is a collection that features vibrant shades of orange for Spring.
So far, Miss Tangerine has been a fun journey but some of the lip products haven’t quite lived up to my expectations. The stains had a way bitter taste and the two selections of lipsticks were a bit too orange for me!
With all this in mind I didn’t set my hopes to high for the last of the lip products featured with the collection which are the Sweet Shower Lips.
Let’s take a look!
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.
Let’s take a look!
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.
But…but…now I need them all!
