Matte liquid lipsticks are here to stay! More and more brands are releasing their versions with formulas becoming less drying and the shades becoming more sophisticated.
And here are two latest launches from such brands as Chanel and Burberry.
Speaking of Burberry, I think their new strategy is simply genius! As you know, it is a Fashion Weeks month, and besides the clothes (obviously) a lot of us are obsessing over the beauty looks at the Runway: hair, makeup and nails. We often get a sneak preview of the products which will be available for the purchase only in months. But not anymore when it comes to Burberry! All the products Wendy Rowe and her team used on the girls are already available, both new shades and new products.
Such as Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Fawn Rose available from Burberry’s website for $34
“Developed with a new, innovative formula, which combines rich pigment, smooth application and a whipped, creamy texture to create a bold, velvet finish that lasts for up to eight hours. Light-as-air Liquid
I already made a preview of the upcoming lipsticks in February and here are more details about Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Lip Mists.
As you remember, I was most excited about the Dior Addict which I already tried and YSL Glossy Candy(£21), so I can’t wait for those to arrive!
Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color
I am happy to see the gorgeous Ginta on the promo image

Burberry Lip Mist Natural
Here is a preview of the new gorgeous festive makeup collection form Burberry. All the products this Christmas come in a beautiful golden packaging.
Other new products are: Complete eye Palette Gold no. 25 (£40) Lip Glow gold NO.25 (£18.50), Lip Mist Gold NO.217 (£22.50) and Nail Polish Gold NO.447 (£15.00)
Here is a weekly update of the new products for face, lips and eyes that caught my attention, and are worth the purchase, in my opinion.
theBalm eye shadows are brilliant (my reviews here and here), and I am loving the look of the new matte palette which is the third in the Meet Matt line. There are nine new shades: Matt Lin, Thomas, Rossi, Lopez, Kumar, Moskowitz, Evans, Reed and Ahmed.

As I’ve already said, it will be all about
To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!
