Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Today I want to tell you about one of my favourite lipsticks ever – Clarins’ Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum Review and Lip Swatches

I really love Clarins lip products and this one is not an exception. This lipstick, in the hottest shade of AW, goes on smoothly and feels nice on the lips. The formula is lovely, it is non-drying  at all.

Royal Plum  has a satin finish and a beautiful coverage, it looks great even with one layer, just make sure you apply it evenly. By the

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

I had to get the new Kate Moss matte lipsticks for Rimmel which are new for Autumn.  I really love the original Kate Moss lipsticks so had high hopes for these.

I have got the berry 107 shade (surprise-surprise). And, oh my goodness, it is awesome!

First of all,  the design is great, you can never go wrong with red and black, in my opinion.

They go on  smoothly, the colour applies evenly and opaque with only one coat. Although this is a matte lipstick, it does not look very flat and chalky on the lips and does not dry them out. The staying power is decent, as well.

Here is how it looks like on the skin.

It is a beautiful berry colour which is not very dark and will be perfect for those who want to embrace such shade but

Sleek Cosmetics Berry Collection Review and Swatches

I know that I am ‘supposed’ to write about the sweet pastel shades as it is Spring…

But I just want to show you this set from Sleek which is still available (I’ve just checked) and which is their ‘Christmas collection’. I just had to get it as the colours are very beautiful!

This set is called the Berry collection, retails for £10/€12 and includes three berry products:

  • Fenberry blush, crimson rose
  •  Kohl Pencil  Mossberry, a deep burgundy
  • True Colour lipstick in Cranberry, a matte mulled wine  colour

Now I have pretty mixed feelings about this set. Although I LOVE it a lot, there are things that I don’t like that much.

Fenberry blush

This is my first blush from Sleek and I really like the quality: pigmentation, staying power and the shade are amazing. I am definitely getting more blushes from them in the future. Have you seen their amazing trio blushes?

Kohl Pencil Mossberry

This is actually  a wearable shade although it may look scary to some people. This liner was the main reason why I wanted the set to badly.  It is not the softest liner and it does not ‘glide on’ plus doesn’t have the most amazing staying power but I love it anyway. If you are afraid of the shade – try adding a thin black line on top and lots of mascara! It would look amazing on green eyes but I love it on my (brown) eyes, too.

True Colour lipstick in Cranberry

This is the lipstick that I was wearing for my Birthday which actually says a lot. I absolutely adore  the

Inglot Dark Berry Matte AMC Lip Pencil # 34 Review and Lip Swatches

It was my Birthday in March and I wanted to wear dark lips out so just for this occasion I’ve bought  Inglot’s Matte AMC Lip Pencil in #34 which is a dark berry shade.

It is matte lip product so obviously  your lips must be in a great condition.  I’ve been using this lip balm so mine were prepared!

So here are my thoughts about it:

As I already said, make sure that your lips are in a perfect condition.

I think it’s easy to apply it as you don’t need any additional products, just make sure that you apply it evenly or it will look horrible and it will be very obvious as it is such a dark shade. I’ve applied mine straight on the lips and gently dabbed it with the finger in the end.

I don’t find it drying (if you moisturised the lips, but not directly before applying this product) and it
