Harlow is the first lip gloss I bought from Nars – yep! I hated it with a passion too – so pale, so silvery, so light. Me no like. But I have since bought 2 more tubes – its not one to layer on otherwise you’ll look like a member of Babylon Zoo, but applied lightly its quite a funky nude lip: In case you don’t remember:
I bought Moon Fleet from Nars at Christmas – because could there be a more Christmassy shade? I think not! This is a clear to slightly yellow toned gloss with gold glitter: Its super glittery and works well on lots of other base colours. I like! What do you think of Moon Fleet?
This lip gloss is Boogie Nights from Nars. Its a shimmer deep purple that looks quite dark in the tube: Actually, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again. It looks rather flattering on my lips: Remember Boogie Nights the film?
The Orgasm collection from Nars now includes a highlighter creme, a blusher, another blusher, a nail polish and so on. Some people say its overrated. I personally like it a lot – I do think its a beautiful mix of peach, pink infused with gold. This is the lip gloss: On the lips – its sheer but rather pretty: Like this gloss? Or do you think its dull?
I found this Nars Lip Stain Gloss is still on sale but I found this pretty one in my collection the other day. This Lip Stain is called Rage. It looks rather scary in the tube but its the least scary shade in the collection: Nars Says about the product: Longwearing matte lip color in a revolutionary non-drying formula. The silicone-based, non-transfer formula glides on smoothly to achieve perfect looking lips for hours. Enriched with […]
Lips for today is this golden bronze lipstick, called Hot Voodoo: I bought this cos it looked so gorgeous on the SA who was wearing it. I have to say its a bit full on for me day to day but its very unusual, bronzy-goddessy: I’ve always had a problem with the texture of Nars Lipsticks – they are a tad dry on me. Nevertheless, some of their shades are real knockouts. What do you […]
Doing a few Nars Lipstick Swatches for the next couple of days! Today is probably my favourite Nars Lipsticik – Schiap. There is no better blue based hot pink in the world: Although…Nars lipsticks dry my lips somewhat. I hope they reformulate the older lipsticks at some point so they are more hydrating. What do you think?
Lips of the day is the perfect shimmery pink-orange-coral lip gloss for the summer! Benefit’s Lip Gloss in Freshly Squeezed: Smells of oranges, which is appropriate considering the name! Its definitely shimmery but its quite nice and if you can’t wear shimmer in the summer, then when else can ya?! Its quite a thick gloss I have to say. On the lips:
There is a reason why I eventually ended up with my first ever Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss. I visited a counter about a week ago where an extremely pretty (and slightly familiar Chanel SA) served me. She had that Angelina-esque-pillowy-lip look about her, and for a few moments I had doubts about my sexuality. Anyway I couldn’t go without asking her what lip gloss she was wearing and she waved it in my face prettily (but […]
If there is one lipstick that is in this very moment it time hard to get your paws on, its the Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in 05 Mademoiselle. Its the lipstick Vanessa Paradis is wearing in the main Chanel advert. Its like the perfect rose pink. Chanel surprised me with this texture. I was expecting a lipstick in a similar texture to YSL Rouge Volupte – mega soft and creamy. Instead, Chanel did exactly what […]
Mmm this was a pretty but expensive lipstick! I think I paid about £28 for it. Why? Cos it has some crystals on the lid! D’oh! There was a bright red in this Crystal Deco collection and also this nude, sandy beige no. 94. I didn’t buy the red although its gorgeous, because I knew I’d wear it twice. Despite looking quite frosty in the tube, its more of a soft, sheer wash. Beautiful but […]
Media, is a Kanebo brand and one of the cheaper, affordable ones. This sort of shows in the packaging, which is very bare, very simple. None of their products really appeal that much to be since they don’t stand out visually but nevertheless, its a very affordable and pretty good quality. I bought this lipgloss cos I just wanted something simple and its about £3! Its called WT-1. Its a clear lipgloss with very shine […]
I was on the Trish McEvoy counter a couple of weeks ago, buying a refill for my Python Palette when I spotted this to die for nude lipstick called Demure – part of the Demure Collection – of course! You should never wag a nude lipstick under my nose when I’m at the till…I cannot control my urges. So I paid £16 for this baby (or was it £18? Can’t remember) which is ok since […]
Today’s lip swatch is another one of my usual colours – a creamy beige nude shade: YSL’s Rouge Put lipstick is super gloss but also quite pigmented. Although it looks quite brown in the tube, its a glossy, honey like nude on the lips. Rather lovely: I hate scent in lipsticks but I make an exception for Chanel and YSL lipsticks, because it reminds me of Champagne! What do you think?
Pretty pretty pretty. That’s all I can say about this Lavshuca Dramatic Memory Rouge (I think this means its long lasting) lipstick. I only bought the one – I’ve got lipsticks coming out of my ears. It comes in this pretty case – it reminds me of Jill Stuart. Rememeber the days, ladies, when Lavshuca was easily the prettiest and nicest Japanese make up brand out there? Its fallen to the wayside of late. I […]
In a sheep moment, baa baaaaa, I went out and bought the Gosh Lipstick in Darling since I had heard so much about it being the perfect nude. Everything looks great in the tube. How did it turn out on my lips? Meh. For me its just a a Meh. I imagine this could work quite well on slightly lighter skinned girls than me – on be there’s too much of a whitish cast going […]
I went nuts of Dolce & Gabbana make up when it was first launched in the UK – since then my interest has subsided. I’d still like to see what collections they come up with though, cos its a really nice looking brand. I got this red lipstick from Dolce & Gabbana a while ago – its a creamy rich red like…the Devil. The packaging is this lovely gold case which also gets lots of […]
I broke my no buy rule (yes, I do actually have one…sort of) to splash out on this Shu Uemura Lip Vinyl Lip Gloss in PK359 (a hot pink) and their lip pencil in PINK 360. I love hot pink lips, I do, but it has to be the right hue and the right texture. I love Nars Schiap Lipstick but the texture is too drying on me. Hence, I was looking for the perfect […]
Today I need some colour. My face needs some oomph. Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Rouge Preciosa is on my lips and is got a stunning texture, SPF 12 and Pro-Xylane. I don’t know what that is, but I like it! It looks darker in the tube than it does on my lips… I am just having one of those weeks I’m afraid, if my sombre tone comes across in posts, then please accept my […]
Oooh er. This gorgeous lipstick from Lancome is part of the Christmas 2009 collection and get this for lipstick benefits – ‘Advanced Moisture Replenishing & Reshaping Lipcolour SPF 12 Pro-Xylane® Enriched ‘ Does your lipstick have Pro-Xylane? Well mine does. Bois De Rose looks like a neutral brown-rose. I wasn’t sure until I put it on – its a lovely creamy beige but not too nude lipstick (please excuse my lips again – I basically […]
