Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Chanel and Burberry

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

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm and Burberry Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick

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!

SS16 New Beauty Products: Burberry, theBalm and Benefit

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.

Lipstick Week: Current Top 3 and a Wish List

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!
