Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick Review & Swatches

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick Spring 2013

I’ve always been a very fond fan of Clarins Lipstick in any shape or form but the new Clarins Rouge Eclat takes that love to new levels. Introduced in fifteen shades for Spring 2013 these gorgeous lipsticks must ALL come home with me soon.

Vibrant color, a gorgeous moisturizing texture that slides onto lips like silk stockings, and an incredible wear make these a must have Spring addition to your makeup stash.

Sephora Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil Review & Swatches

Sephora Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil Glossy Orange

Sephora has introduced their own line of Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencils with their new Pastel Pop Spring 2013 Collection. Best part about these is they are near to drugstore brand prices at ten bucks a piece.

Nice right?

They are sadly limited edition though and come in a smaller variety of shades (a mere three le sigh!) but you might want to pick them up before they disappear.

Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm is available in five new, limited edition shades for Spring. I recently picked up the Coral Crush Baby Lips Balm as I can’t resist anything in coral, orange, or peach (you know my addiction well don’t you?).

I’m not a terribly big fan of Baby Lips but they seem to evolved a little since I last tried them out.

Here are a few thoughts on Coral Crush.

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray Review

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.

I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!

But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.

Does NYX’s version work?

Beauty Shop Scare

I have a very deep love of horror movies, gore, and being scared silly. I’ve collected issues of Fangoria from as far back as the age of 11 much to my mum’s complete confusion.

But funny thing is I’m a complete wuss. It’ll take me three or four hours to get through a ninety minute horror film because I have to pause through those parts where something jumps out at you. Or I’ll sit there watching the movie through a blanket over my head. I just hate that feeling of something jumping out at you suddenly and giving you a heart attack. That’s seriously not a great experience.

I’ve watched some foul stuff in my time particular gory foreign films but stuff jumping out at me, can’t do it.

Here’s a clip Eli Roth tweeted today that really cracked me up.

Needless to say if I was sitting in a salon having my hair done and some scary azz girl popped up in the mirror I’d hightail it out of there. No explanations.

How scary is your beauty regime? icon smile
