Reader’s Request: Vincent Longo Lip & Cheek Gel Stain Review and Swatches

Cheek stain is one of my makeup life’s longest wearing product. Most makeup wears off, oxidizes, and never really wears well throughout the day but you can always rely on a good cheek stain to stay put until YOU take it off. How many cosmetics do that?! Not many in my opinion!

I recently stocked up on my favorite cheek stain by Vincent Longo as there is a sale ongoing at the moment of 25% Off and a reader had requested I review the product after getting it. Strangely enough, Vincent Longo Lip and Cheek Gel is my HG (holy grail) for a very long time now but I never took a second out to review it.

Dianne Brill Panties in a Bunch Mini Lip Gloss Set Review and Swatches

Dianne Brill Panties in a Bunch 22

I bet a man was the one who created the saying, “Don’t get your panties in a bunch”. Yup, definitely something a dude would say. But I actually don’t mind getting my panties in a punch particularly when they come in a box, look like bon bons, and come in pretty colors.

Clarins Instant Blush Magic Colour Review and Swatches

Clarins Instant Blush Magic Colour 11

Ahh the sweetness of a blush.

There’s something gorgeous about a pink flush across cheek bones isn’t there? The type of pink that makes our cheeks glow after a romantic kiss or sometimes the brisk morning air that tinges our cheeks with a hint of pink.

Blushing pink cheeks give off a certain innocent, youthfulness.

If you want to capture just the right flush of pink you might be interested in the new Clarins Instant Blush Magic Colour.

TokyoMilk Cherry Bomb Lip Balm Review

Ahh Tokyo! One of my fav cities in the world, outside my own little city of course.

Tokyo is such an incredible culture shock. You might think you know city life but believe me some of the obscurity of a large Japanese city may never be known in any other city in the world in my opinion.

Speaking of Tokyo….

Wanna hear ’bout one of my fav lip balms? Someone asked me a while back ago, “What’s your fav balm?” Dude, such a loaded question. I have so many I love.

TokyoMilk Cherry Bomb Lip Balm happens to be one.

You probably NEEDS it, if not for the balm at LEAST for the name alone, loves it!

L’Oreal Stars Never Fail Infalliable Lipcolour Compact Collection Review and Swatches

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.

Horror.

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?
