Diorific Royale Long Wear True Colour Lipstick Review & Swatches

Diorific Long Wear True Colour Lipstick

Diorific Royale Long Wear True Colour Lipstick ($36) is one of three limited edition shades that launched with the Dior Golden Winter Holiday 2013 Makeup Collection.

It’s actually a creamy shade of neutral golden pink with specks of delicious golden sparkle in the mix. However, it is one of those shades I’d avoid as it runs a touch cooler and I prefer warmth in my lipstick shades.

But this surprised me, YOU NEED IT!


Stila Color Balm Lipstick Review & Swatches

This a where I tell you the story about this one time I reviewed a sample of Stila Color Balm Lipstick because I purchased five of these when they original launched and I have NO IDEA where I put them!

No seriously, this is a true story. When Stila Color Balm Lipstick launched I recall it being a little after Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter had come into town. And let’s face it those kinda sorta started the hybrid lip balm lipstick epidemic. I recall be terribly excited that Stila was launching a similar product.

Fast forward to me throwing a few in my cart review. Well, I’m organized…typically anything I review goes in different Rubbermaid bins which I dub my “to be reviewed pile” but for the life of me I can’t find where I put these. I suspect I might have either donated them by mistake or perhaps tossed them in the garbage.

Oh woe is me.

So here I am, like a loser, raving Stila Color Balm Lipstick but only have a sample to review for you that I got from cashing in some Sephora points.

Don’t worry, I’ll follow up with a deeper review soon as I might have to buy every single shade of these as soon as possible!

The MAC Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag ($39.50) is a great value as it contains three full size MAC products as well as a brush and makeup bag to store it all in.

This dreamy set is a perfect gift or a great way to try out some fantastic MAC makeup picks.

Take a look!

Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set Review & Swatches

We talked so much about those monster Crayola sets lately that it didn’t surprise me the Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set ($25) is shaped exactly like a package of ‘em!

Stila went out of there way this to make their Holiday 2013 Collection very appealing to the artistic types out there as everything is shaped like something you’d pick up at your local art store including this Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set which flips open like a big old box of crayons.

Mmm…Santa, forget the makeup, I kinda want a box of crayons for Christmas this year. Especially if they are as delicious and glossy as Stila Lip Glazes!
