Clarins says the first objective of a lipstick is the attract attention with its color and shine but they failed to mention elegant packaging draws the eye as well. You won’t be shy about whipping out the new Clarins Rouge Prodige True Colour & Shine Lipstick from your purse for touch up as it comes housed in a simple yet lovely gold case. The second objective of a lipstick is to remain flawless throughout the day….does Rouge Prodige do the trick?
Anyone who knows me knows what a big ass geek I am and how I sweat Freddie Mercury hard. FLASH!!!!!!!!!! AHHHH!!!!!!!! He’ll save everyone of us! Man, how awesome was Timothy Dalton in the Flash Gordon movie? Totally love that flick, such a complete geek fest.
Sorry I think I got off topic since the new Milani lip pencil is named “Flash”….
Milani Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil yay or nay….what do I think?
I gotta say I’m not particularly keen on Estee Lauder lip products simply because of the packaging and the taste. Yes, yes we are all terrible package junkies and shallow enough to admit that Estee Lauder packaging is simply NOT cute enough for most of us. I try to tame my shallow good nature when shopping EL simply because they actually have some incredibly cool products.
Now another thing….
I love many of the lip products that the brand does but the taste is a tad off putting at times. It’s a cherryish, perfum-y fruity something or another. Now the fruity is great but it’s the mix of perfume that makes me cringe.
Putting these flaws aside I must say I really fell in love with the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss. Incredibly lovely stuff. Although I already reviewed these I wanted to take a minute just to do a brief recap and some more swatches from my recent Nordstrom pre-order as I got four more shades of these bad boys and they are too gorgeous not to share.
You might fall in love with the shades I picked!
So, story time…
I’ve been stalking the Balm daily to see if they release anything new. I sweat that brand so hard. I was kinda hopeful they’d surprise us with a new blush like last year’s Down Boy but sadly no such luck.
However, good news, they do have a brand new palette and new cream shadows to enjoy.
Why? Because I won’t be splurging on any LE Fall Collections from Victoria’s Secret this year. Phew! Money saved. I normally adore the Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Seasonal Releases but this year I’m not really feeling the love for the new palette releases and unless they release something more I’m pretty safe!
Take a peek at the new Victoria’s Secret Runway Your Way Palettes and tell me what you think!
