About a year ago 100% Pure had a Today’s Special Value on QVC featuring a box set of their cosmetics. I stupidly indulged in the one time shipment and proceeded to love the set! I really should have gotten the auto delivery which offered a new selection of products over the course of a few months.
I believe that 100% Pure has since brought those box sets out in the form of the Pink Box Set and the Strawberry Box Set which I told you about during Christmas.
I ended up indulging in the 100% Pure Cosmetics Cruelty Free Makeup Pink Box Collection recently (now I really want the Strawberry one too!) and I thought I’d take some time out to share my thoughts on it!
When I think matte, I think Dita von Teese. That girl wears red matte lipstick like she was born with it on her mouth. Stunning, simply stunning!
However, when I try to wear it, well, it’s far from stunning and more in the realms of hello Bozo the Clown. Plus it tends to migrate around my mouth, onto my chin, up my cheek, and across my forehead. Needless to say, it’s messy as hell for some reason and I can’t pull it off.
As with eyeshadow, lipstick and lip creams in a matte finish just don’t get on well with me for some reason.
Maybe NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream can change my mind!
Sorry guys little late with my review of the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection but quite fitting as the weather is so very Spring-like today. It was nice pulling this gorgeous kit out of my review pile and indulging in tropical hues and not worrying about how I had to get out my deep sea diving gear to make my way into the snow, wet, and cold! Today we got sun, a brisk cool breeze, and the birds chirping crazily in excitement that maybe, just maybe, Spring might be on the way!
I HOPE you all got your hands on this set but if not, no worries, it’s still available so after the review if you’re wanting it you can indulge!
The MAC Wonder Woman Lipsticks are an interesting lot of colors which make me puzzle over why MAC decided to go with these shades.
Let’s have a look!
