Another Christmas present I got from Mr C was a rather impressive haul from Giorgio Armani; impressive because he went and chose a lip gloss for me and I am pretty hard to buy for (I had pretty much hinted about what shades of the Eyes to Kill I wanted in case he got me a really horrible colour). When you buy a few items from Armani they put it in a nice red gift […]
I was sent a selection of products from a French brand, terre d’Oc which is certified organic, non-comogenic and is formulated with a number of oils and butters. The idea is that the products nourish as well as looking pretty! I have 3 products here, Eye Shadow Duo which has a cream texture in Rose and Prune Takaro, Eye Kohl in 701 Prune Kerala and Gloss Sublime Lip Gloss in Peach. Want a closer look?
Recently, I was sorting out my pigments for the blog sale (this Saturday people!) and ended up with about 6 empty containers. So I went to MAC to claim my free lipstick! Rather than going for something wacky,which is what I always do I decided to pick something I knew I would wear. I am madly in love with Angel from MAC – it’s one of the few MAC lipsticks I adore but it was […]
I have a sickness – and it’s a lipgloss sickness and I can’t stop buying pretty ones! Having said that…a lot of the ones I buy are just meh. So it’s really nice to find something a bit special, that really looks pretty on… Esprique Aqua Drape Rouge lipglosses were released a few months back. I purchased two colours, RD471 a sheer brown red and PK972, a light pink: In my experience Japanese lip glosses […]
The Face Shop is a Korean brand with some really interesting one off products. I find their Korean site very hard to navigate though so it’s tricky for me to see all the products they offer in one place. I did spot these Real Diamond (allegedly contains a small amount of diamond powder!) on eBay and decided to buy a few. I ABSOLUTELY adore sparkly glosses at this time of year! The glosses:I bought PK101 […]
Lips of the day time! You know – I just love lipsticks and lip glosses but when you have so many, it’s hard to find something that is really lovely and impressive. Also the prices of lip products have seemed to soar, even high street brands like L’oreal are pushing £10 for a basic lipstick! By Terrys Gloss Terrybly (geddit?) Shine is a plumping, shiny lip gloss. It is firming, anti-aging and moisturises too: It […]
I love glittery lip gloss; I really do. I do love the MAC dazzleglass lipglosses, for full on disco. I have yet to find a glittery lip gloss that can surpass Dior’s Limited Edition sparkle top coat though (Image here). It was super duper gritty though! Enter Candydoll’s top coat offering; this lip gloss is a called Gelato ‘Gritter’ (really) but they actually mean, Glitter…. Gelato Glitter is a sheer light pink with multi coloured […]
Typing Click It! makes me think of Bop It! – who has a Bop It? I was only introduced into it’s amazingness a few months ago and now I understand why it is the job of every person who knows a 10 year old to buy one of these for them…it’s so annoying, it’s funny. Jouer Cosmetics (meaning ‘to play’) is a clickable make up system – or perhaps I am rushing ahead of myself. […]
I love high intensity, pigmented lip glosses, although they can be quite unforgiving on unhealthy lips and can smudge easily. Korean Brand, The Face Shop is a brand I am currently testing out and I spotted their Extreme Rouge Glosses on eBay. These vivid lip glosses are highly pigmented, contain Argan oil and adds volume to the lips. They should also last around 6 hours! I bought 3 colours, PK101 – a bright pink, BR801, […]
Clinique’s Chubby Stick is a very appealing combination of lip balm, sheer lip colour and pencil…should you like drawing with lip pencils. It has a lot going for it, on paper, such as not requiring a sharpener (just swivel up!). When Clinique had it’s bonus time, always generous, always pointless because I never use them but somehow can’t stop myself being swept away, I picked this Chubby Stick in Woopin’ Watermelon: Wow, that’s not an […]
I’ve rediscovered my love of sparkly glosses; maybe it’s because the weather is so miserable outside, and I just need something to cheer my up in the gloomy mornings! Although I don’t buy MAC that often, they do make one of my favourite lip glosses EVER – Dazzleglass in Baby Sparks. It’s a super soft pink with tons of multi coloured sparkles and I just love it will all me heart. One of the few […]
Let’s start this sunny Monday off with a lips of the day – and today’s is a very unassuming number from GOSH cosmetics. This Gloss Light’N Shine Lip Eclat and Brilliance comes in that light up packaging – you take the applicator out and it has a light underneath plus a mirror on the side so you can apply it in the dark…or dark situations. This type of applicator has been done to death by […]
I reported on Guerlain’s Terracotta collection for 2011, aptly named Inca. It is a very pretty, very sexy collection indeed! I have 2 of the products here to look at! First up is the Terracotta Gloss in 07 Salsa: The terracotta lip gloss looks extremely bold and bright in the tube but it is very much a sheer and shiny finish lip product. Do not be afraid of the brightness!
I love a good Chanel lipstick or lip gloss and my newest purchase, courtesy of Mr C is one of the Rouge Coco Shine! I chose 48 Evasion which is a pretty pink type nude with subtle shimmer. It’s very natural on me: They say: The formula glides on for easy application, and a unique HYDRATENDRE complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance. Available in a complete range of shades, […]
Etude House LUCIDarling lip glosses and lipsticks are rather lovely – I’ve tried a few shades before, and they’re pretty pigmented and hydrating. I bought 2 lipsticks and 2 lip glosses, I wanted a cool toned mauve and a reds. I’ve come to realise I buy more lipsticks than lip glosses – I guess it’s because it needs topping up so often! These two LUCIDarling lip glosses are very pigmented and glossy…
L’oreal has 7 new shades of Glam Shine Fresh and 5 new shades of Glam Shine 6 Hour Lip gloss and they are very bright, shiny and bold! If there is one thing I really like about L’oreal lip gloss it is the heart shaped applicator, which fits the lips really nicely. Here are the shades I was sent to try. I usually go for more pigmented lip gloss but it’s nice to have something […]
From Jill Stuart’s Dreamy Garden collection comes this limited edition Petite Jelly Lip Gloss Trio which is…erm, limited edition. These are smaller sized at 9g but as far as I am concerned enough – god knows I have trouble finishing any type of cosmetic: The shades are: 101 Pretty Tutu 102 Cherry Whip 103 Sweet Perfume The packaging, though smaller is perfectly formed with a pretty silver lid and a pink gem on one. There’s […]
Lavshuca’s Perfect Gloss had a lot to live up to, being called ‘perfect’ an all… In this small squeezy tube is a clear gloss which apparently does everything! Lavshuca Perfect Gloss is a lip gloss, lip balm, SPF 21 and lip base all in one. You don’t get much of it, but then it’s not too expensive either. When it comes to lip bases I don’t really bother unless I am wearing a dry lipstick. […]
Once again I am very late with Sleek swatches, but better late than never?! I can’t keep up with all of Sleek’s new releases anymore! Anyway their very pretty release, Avoir La Peche is a collection of very nice peaches. I purchased the eyeshadow palette and pout polish (I couldn’t find the blusher anywhere): Now – is this palette wearable? Not exactly but is it super cute and kind of unusual, thus worth owning just-in-case?! […]
I can’t help but like the bizarre and today’s odd lip comes from Lunasol – one of their limited edition glosses, shade EX15: Is it a blue? a white? a green? It’s sort of a bit of each mixed into a sheer, glowy gloss. Blue gloss is supposed to make your teeth look whiter, ok!?
