I don’t like lip palettes.
Not only are they gross but, I dunno, I just like applying my lipstick and gloss from a tube with an applicator, etc…I’m a traditionalist. Lip palettes get mighty messy plus they are a breeding ground for bacteria.
Bobbi Brown has somewhat changed my mind on lip palettes, almost, kinda, sorta….
But I admit I indulged in the new Too Faced Natural Kiss Neutral Lip Color Collection. I just had to have it. It went so well with their box eyeshadow set plus the shades looked delightful along side my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Gasp! Is it sacrilegious to wear Urban Decay on my eyes and Too Faced on my lips? I always think of them as complete rivals, kinda celebrity smack down style thing going on between the two brands…in this corner we have Urban Decay in this corner we have Too Faced Cosmetics…BATTLE ON!
Remember when Chanel released Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shines? I freaking loved those things. They just popped.
My new obsession?
Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Lipgloss.
I’m the happy owner of a few Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes.
Many of you already tried them but I just got a chance to test them out yesterday, actually, I’m still in the midst of testing them out at the moment. Quite a few folks mentioned they were sheer and very subtle, true that….so far I’m have issues getting some of the lighter shades to show up on my skin. But the texture is rather awesome, I like the springy clay-like action of it! The texture kinda reminds me of a lighter version of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow.
Jump ahead for a few swatches!
Who’s up for some cheap thrills?
I hauled some New York Color Cosmetics City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss on a recent foray through CVS. They promise to wear for eight hours straight…click.
Needless to say I’m skeptical!
Let’s see how the testing went.
Gotta say I really like what Bare Escentuals has done with the Buxom line. It’s kinda a little brand all its own isn’t it? Many of the offerings are quite delightful as well. I think of it as BE’s younger, hipper little sister.
I can’t say how excited I was about the launch of Buxom True Hue Blush. These are a new blush launching in February that will be available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com in 8 shades.
I gave you a little sneak peek of swatches a week or so ago and after some testing here’s my review.
Take a look!
