Oh Jill Stuart. You create the most beautiful looking lipsticks in glossy textures, that are hard to resist. The newest lipstick to join the Jill Stuart family is ‘Lip Blossom’ and debuts with 10 shades. I adored their last lipstick releases - the texture is gorgeous – so I presumed this would be a winner too.
Launching this month (February 2014) is Estee Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks, in twenty shades from nudes to pinks, to corals to red, to mauves, to plums, to berries…you get the idea. There’s a big colour choice. They say: One-of-a-kind statement shades for all skintones. Multi-faceted pigments create definition. Lips look beautifully shaped, sculpted, curvaceous. Time-released Moisture Complex helps capture and seal-in hydration.Lips feel continuously moisturised throughout the day. Super creamy, glides on […]
Avon’s newest lipsticks is the Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick. Oh come on, you’re thinking, aren’t you all Tom Ford and Suqqu? Yes. Yes I am. But I am a lipstick addict, and there’s nothing better than finding a cheap and cheerful gem of a lipstick, and you know what? I think these colours from Avon are really rather fabulous. These Ultra Colour lipstick is supposed to be pigmented, and hydrating, infused with collagen, vitamin E, […]
I am lipstick obsessed at the moment, and I have this dream that I will rock matte lipstick one day in a really HAWT way, but the fact is, I have dry lips and no patience to use a lip brush. What’s a gal to do? When I saw these VDL lipsticks – specifically, Expert Colour Lip Cubes, I had to buy two to try. VDL is a premium Korean brand (it stands for Violet […]
Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had a great time. It’s felt like a seriously long holiday, but you can’t beat a rest. Over Christmas I managed to pull some nice bargains in the sales but also got a couple of make up items are gifts. Most people wouldn’t chance buying me make up as I have so much it’s hard to know what I actually have! But Mr C got me my […]
Whilst Jane Iredale are well known for their mineral make up, did you know they also do colour cosmetics? Yes? No? Well they do! Launched in September 2013, these Pure Moist Lipsticks are a kinder option for your lips; they are hydrating colours (24 shades) that are free from synthetic preservative and FD and C dyes. They also contain orange peel wax, avocado and sunflower seed oil, and more. I chose the shade Theresa, […]
The Face Shop is a Korean beauty brand, perhaps less well known than her sisters, Etude House and Tony Moly, but also more understated and elegant. Like Innisfree, The Face Shop tries to create products based around an organic ethos and with a natural vibe (i.e. Chia Seed moisturiser, Mango Seed Cream etc.). I find the brand quite interesting. I purchased two of their ‘Black Label’ lipsticks a while – just because they were cheap […]
Last month, Giorgio Armani Beauty launched a range of 36 new lipsticks, called the Rouge Ecstasy CC (Colour and Care) range. After the whole BB cream rage, followed by the CC cream ‘thing’ it was inevitable I guess, that other products would start creating multi functional products with the label. I personally thought that is seemed like a risk; Armani beauty has such elegant product that don’t at all seem faddy to me, surely […]
