Lipsticks

Swatches: Revlon Limited Edition Vintage Super Lustrous Lipsticks in Jungle Peach and Snow Peach

2:44 PM


THe Revlon Limited Edition Vintage Lipsticks have finally been released, and I was so excited when I saw a brand new display at Walgreens, with BOGO1/2 on the ticket!  I used this opportunity to pick up Jungle Peach and Snow Peach 



Jungle Peach looks really bright orange on my lack-of-sun-and-Vitamin-D skin right now, but when actually applied to the lips, its a nice, muted milky-cream peach leaning nude shade.  I really was pleasantly surprised with this, and see where I will be reaching for this color A LOT!

Snow Peach is a bright coral, still slightly muted and milky, but definitely brighter and pinkier than Jungle Peach.  This will be great in the summer.  


Below, swatches on.  First, Jungle Peach.


Then, Snow Peach.


I think I need Sandstorm.  I remember loving that color.  What is your favorite re-release?

Spotted at Meijer: New Milani Gold Label Nail Polishes, Lip Intense Liquid Colors and Power Lip Colors

10:12 AM


Milani has a few new items on their permanent display at Meijer, including two lip products and a new collection of Gold Label nail polishes.  Above, the Lip Intense Liquid lip colors - there were four bright colors ranging from red to a purple.  Interestingly, right next to the liquid lip colors was a lip liner pencil in a clear shade, to help prevent feathering.  I'm kicking myself for not picking this up, as I have a couple of lipsticks that I love, except for that pesky feathering they do!  


Lastly, below are the new Gold Label polishes that are popping up on the permanent displays.  Closeups of the bottles below, these are all "sugar" themed, and remind me of Easter.  Not glitters, per say, but definitely unique top coats for the spring/summer seasons.  





Have you seen these before?  After reading the names I feel like I need to go play Candy Crush!

Swatches and FOTD: Aromaleigh "Spectacularly Ignorant" & "Tribute Token" and Loreal Infallible "Dive Right In" w/ Laura Geller's Collection of Love Set

9:50 AM


All this snow has me thinking about warm beaches and tropical blue waters.  So....when I found a $2 off coupon for L'oreal and was able to pick up the Infallible shadow in "Dive Right In", I decided to build a EOTD around this color that could get me out of the winter doldrums.  (Click on any of the images below to enlarge).

I just received a new order of Aromaleigh eyeshadows, two of which went really well with Dive Right In, so I decided to coordinate around them.  Spectacularly Ignorant (from the Sherlock Holmes "Brilliant Deductions" collection) and Tribute Token (from the Hunger Games "Ever In Your Favor" collection) are two absolutely stunning, multifaceted, colors.  Can we talk about how absolutely gorgeous these are?  Not to mention, pigmented, long lasting, and just down right unique!  


Spectacularly Ignorant is a very deep teal to evergreen base with golden shimmer.  Tribute Token is a mustard green that has pink and copper shimmer.  Both are extremely multifaceted, and it is difficult to capture in the pictures below, although the swatch of Tribute Token is pretty close.  


For the look below, I used the following:

Face:
Laura Geller Spackle Primer (original)
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer in Light
Laura Geller Baked Elements Foundation in Fair
Mally Bronzer in Light - contour
Laura Geller Baked Heart Blush 'n Brighten in Pink Valentine

Eyes:
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh Tribute Token - inner corner, lower lashline
L'oreal Infallible Dive Right In - middle of lid
Aromaleigh Spectacularly Ignorant - crease, outer corner, and wet as liner
MAC Phloof - highlight

Lips:
Laura Geller Love Me Dew Lip Crayon in Lychee Glace





I absolutely loved this eyeshadow combination.  Such bright and fun colors that remind me of the ocean and definitely take me away from the feet of snow we are fielding this week in the midwest!  I have always loved Aromaleigh eyeshadows, but my love affair has been rekindled with these two, so I can definitely see another order being placed in the very near future.

Laura Geller Colors of Love Collection: Heart Blush-n-Highlighter "Pink Valentine" and Love Me Dew "Lychee Glace"

1:00 PM


Laura Geller has some of my all-time favorite blushes, so when I saw her "Colors of Love" collection being presented on QVC a few weeks ago, I had to pick this one up.  

The set consists of a baked blush/highlighter and a lip crayon.  As I have recently fallen in love with lip crayons, thanks to the likes of Revlon, I was anxious to try one of Laura's as well.  


First up, the blush.  Look at how absolutely gorgeous this is.  The color is called "Pink Valentine", and is a coral base with golden shimmer.  The heart highlighter is a shimmery champagne shade, similar (if not identical) to Portofino.  This blush is like Nars Orgasm, only brighter. 


The lip crayon, Lychee Glace, is a bright coral, without shimmer.  This goes on very pigmented, with a nice shine.  The crayon itself is adjusted from the base, like other crayons are.  A nice, thick crayon, it is hefty enough of a product to apply easily, and doesn't feather into your lines.  It is sticky enough to last a majority of the day without a need to reapply, but doesn't dry out your lips like a lot of lasting lip colors are known to do.  


Swatches side-by-side of all three shades below.  When you swirl the blush together, there is just the added depth of the highlighter, although if you have a small enough blush-brush, you can reach for it alone to highlight your cheek bones.  These are some gorgeous shades, for sure!  Definitely a nice step up from your average box of chocolates on Valentines Day....go ahead, treat yourself!
