Would you like a little NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with your eyeshadows and cookies?
This little gem has been raved the makeup blog over but I’ve never indulged personally until recently. Makeup junkies rave it for its ability to enhance the shade of shadows, lock shadows in place while acting as a primer, and just generally act as a perfect base for loose pigments and minerals.
All true…all true!
Hey, wait, why did I always think that the It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Stain was a clear balm sort of formula?
How wrong was I!
The shade Je Ne Sais Quoi always appeared a clear balm to me so I never indulged. Surprised was I when I got a sample to try out and it actually turned into one of those perfect shades of pink.
It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Anti-Aging Lipstick is a balm, a gloss, and a stain all in one.
Take a look!
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…!
