When you’ve been around a brand for a while it’s awful refreshing when they veer off the well used path and bring out something new. This is the case with MAC Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour Pots but really are they new?
MAC is a sub brand of the Estee Lauder Group as is Bobbi Brown, seeing my point?
Let’s have a look at these!
L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.
Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.
Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.
For a brand that created cult favorites like the Shadestick and Greasepaint Sticks one has to question what the hell happened when MAC created their new MAC Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liner Pencils.
This formula ventures so out the norm of stick pencils I’ve tried from them in the past I really had to question whether it was from MAC at all.
This is another example of how MAC has been going downhill with their quality lately…!
Here’s an interesting little find! I recently located a L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in the shade Endless Pearl on a special display at Walmart which contained new colors.
I actually thought this was one of the new shades as don’t recall ever seeing it when the product launched at my local drugstore.
What’s so special about Endless Pearl?
It’s matte! Yes! Matte! It’s possibly the only matte shade I’ve seen in the Infallible Eyeshadow Collection. Not that I’m a fond fan of matte shades but Endless Pearl is actually quite a nice one particularly for aging eyes to give them a more wakey wakey appearance.
Take a look!
I dunno about you but I definitely have a certain affection for pretty powders. But I have grown up a little and my makeup life has matured to a point where I’ll analyze said pretty powder and ask myself a few questions prior to a purchase.
- Do I really need this powder?
- Am I just buying it because it’s pretty?
- Will I actually use it or will it sit in my stash unused merely brought out on special occasions to stare at?
Somethings you have to be a little grown up about these things but sadly, this technique doesn’t always work and I become overwhelmed by cute powders like the new MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People, polka dots, ahhhhh!
Sometimes it’s tough resisting but in this case, you probably won’t need to dish out $38.
