There’s a reason why I have been avoiding doing lip swatches for a while; because it is such a pain to put lipstick on and take it back off again! I certainly found that it hurt my lips a lot, and they started to hurt and flake after a while. Also I hate how long lasting lipsticks dry and stick to my lips sometimes! Terrible! Then I spotted this teeny product on Adambeauty. It’s called […]
For Christmas 2011 Jane Iredale will be bringing in a new edition of Chocoholicks lip palette. It comes in a chocolate coloured case (naturally) and includes a lip brush. Jane Iredale herself says: “The selection process was quite delicious! We asked ourselves: what four flavours, when combined with chocolate, make the most heavenly pairing? We’re confident we found the four all?stars: Blood Orange, Espresso, Very Berry and Chili Pepper. The results are simply irresistible.” Woo! […]
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 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, […]
Lunasol is one of my favourite Japanese high end make up brands – it’s so lush – but also unfortunately, expensive to buy. I found this lipstick on eBay (good for the odd Lunsol bargain) – at £13 it was a bit of a bargain as their lipstick can cost in the region of £20+ depending on who you buy it from. The packaging: The shade is called Bright Red 05. It is indeed, in […]
Shiseido’s MAQUillage launched the Rouge Enamel Glamour a while ago. It is a long lasting lip colour, with a lip stain on one side and a gloss on the other. MAQUillage lip products generally speaking are very strong – it is one of the best products the brand makes. This dual ended long lasting type product is rarer on the Japanese market (where everything is so sheer and watery!) so I thought it would be […]
I am not a fan of lip palettes at all but I couldn’t resist this beauty. The hazards of browsing online stores aimlessly…. Etude House’s Welcome to Wonder Lip Land (there’s also a shadow version): It’s smaller overall than I expected but it’s still a pretty little thing. The lid is highly reflective making fingerprint marks appear everywhere…hmph!
Shiro Cosmetics created this rather snazzy set of Legend of Zelda pigments and I decided we would always be friends. Then they decided to make Intertubes, extremely cute tubes that sort of do – everything. They are vegan friendly and are lip lip sticks and stains and glosses and balms. Clever things! There are 10 shades to choose from (lovely swatches if you look at the Shiro Shop) from completely nutty (Robe & Wizard, a […]
