MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Nude lip products aren’t something that I get excited about, but the new  Max Factor  Colour Elixir Gloss collection called Nude Pomade are pretty awesome.

This limited edition release was created by an amazing MUA Caroline Barnes, and they actually are a  homage to Mr Max’s first ever lip gloss, Lip Pomade, which he created in 1920′s.

Max Factor Nude Pomade Lip Gloss Collection Review and Swatches

There are four shades, and here is Caroline’s inspiration behind each one, and also her tips. Plus my comments.

10 Pristine Nude

Caroline: “This is an ultimate nude lip colour and it should be part of every woman’s make-up bag. Suiting all skin tones, it’s my make-up staple. It will perk up your look and create a natural, healthy look when you’re feeling lacklustre.”

Actually, this lip gloss is now a part of my makeup bag, too.   It is sheer enough so that my natural lip colour shows through plus it is not a concealer like “dead looking” dated nude.  It has pretty  mauve/pink undertones, and should look amazing on a lot of women. My personal favourite.

15 Radiant Rose

Caroline: “This shade conveys an expensive lips – with accents of champagne it’s the most subtle gloss in my collection. It will have an incredible lip shaping appearance with its gold flecks and will suit all skin tones.”

This is a beautiful warm-toned shimmering lip gloss, which I personally love paired with matte eye makeup and a liner, it adds just the right amount of glow, plus it makes the

I have promised a lip swatch of one of my favourite lip products  - BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude. So here it is…

BM beauty?! Yes, it is not the brand that you hear about very often.  I was sent some of their products a long time ago, and I felt absolutely in love with the brush and lip gloss (you can read a feature here).

I already wrote about the gloss, so won’t repeat myself, but it really is unlike anything else  that I have.  Maybe it’s because I don’t really have  any experience with mineral indie lip products?!

Rouge Bunny Rouge make nice lip products, including glosses – Lip Gloss Gleaming Temptations and Glassy Gloss Sweet Excesses  and, although I liked them both, the newest addition to the range – SWELL BLISS XXX Lip Plump is definitely my favourite!

Rouge Bunny Rouge XXX Lip Plump Swell Bliss in Clover Royal Jelly Review and Lip Swatches

I love absolutely everything about this product actually:

It looks glossy and shiny when applied, the formula is hydrating, it contains Jojoba Wax, Olive Oil Extract and Vitamin E and feels lovely on the lips.  It smells  fresh and minty and tastes (don’t ask) nicely, too.

But does it really volumizes/plumps the lips?  I think

It is probably  too early to write about berry lip products but, for some reason, I have been talking (with my girlfriends) about such shades quite a lot recently.

This is why I’ve decided to pick some of my favourites from those that I have with different finishes and price point, so there is something for everyone.

So here we go…

Berry and Plum lip products for Autumn Winter makeup4all

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum

I have written about this lipstick only recently. It is a part of the upcoming Clarins’ Fall collection. It is a gorgeous plum shade with a satin finish. Not very intense but not sheer at all, just spot on!

 butter LONDON Lippy in La Moss

I absolutely love the name and the vampy shade of this gloss, so sexy! Just keep in mind that the application can be a bit tricky, it takes time to get an even coverage. But it’s so worth it! Dark vinyl lips, perfect for those who are not afraid to go for it.

ArtDeco Lip Laquer 40 Rosy Tribute

This is a lighter in shade and

Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!

I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.

You can read about  Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms, Colour Quench Lip Balms and my favourite Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

So now it’s time for  Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.

As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.

Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends.  This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not.   It is written that it’s blackberry and
