Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick Review & Swatches

Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick Summer 2013

Josie Maran Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick ($22) have some mixed reviews but I must admit I really liked the one I purchased. I understand why though! They are pretty much a spot on dupe for Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms and having experienced those and knowing how to use them I pretty much liked Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick just as much.

Here are my thoughts!

NARS Pierre Hardy Blush Palette

Props to you if you’ve been able to resist the Pierre Hardy for NARS Blush Palettes! Rotonde is one of two blush shades that are available for a limited time which Pierre Hardy collaborated with NARS to create.

This super size blush palette is a stunning shade of tiger lily orange and an absolute MUST have for the NARS Blush junkies out there. And hey, if you NEVER used or purchased a NARS Blush before now is a good time to start.

Etude House Color Pop Dear My Lips Talk Lipstick Review & Swatches

Etude House Color Pop Dear My Lips Talk Summer 2013

I recently purchased a single shade of the Etude House Color Pop Dear My Lips Talk Lipstick in 0R221. These lipsticks were launched with the Etude House Color Pop Collection in a range of ten shades and I was smart enough to only purchase the one.

You see, when Etude House does a great lipstick that really DO a great lipstick. But when they do a rubbish one, well, they REALLY do a rubbish one. Having tried many of their lipsticks from a variety of collections I’ve learned my lesson NOT to order too many at one time. Try one and proceed to haul more if they are good is my chosen method of madness.

In the case of the new Etude House Color Pop Dear My Lips Talk I’m every so happy I only hauled one as I dislike the formula.

Take a look!

Sonia Kashuk Monochrome Eye Quad Review & Swatches

Sonia Kashuk Monochrome Eye Quad Spring 2013

If you’ve been busy Target shopping you know the new Sonia Kashuk Monochrome Eye Quad Eyeshadow Palettes are on shelves now. These are a revamp of the original Sonia Kashuk Eye Quad and might I say a great improvement.

For Spring 2013 these were released in four color variations. What makes them so special is the fact they contain a range of different finishes inside a single quad. It’s an unexpected treat to have such a smaller quad that caters to a variety of eyeshadow textures and finishes.

Let’s have a look!

L’Oreal Colour Riche By Pencil Perfect Eyeliner Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche By Pencil Perfect Eyeliner

I picked up one of the six shades of the new L’Oreal Colour Riche By Pencil Perfect Eyeliner last week. This is a cool, retro style eyeliner as it is a wood pencil. Jeepers when was the last time a wood pencil has been seen on the makeup scene? We’ve been bombarded with so many twist up mechanical pencils I forgot real pencils existed.

L’Oreal launched these in six shades and they will probably become a permanent feature in the Color Richie line so no worries about racing around trying to locate them.

Shall we take a look?
