Daniel Sandler Luxury Glosses in Skinny Dip and Vivid Energy Review and Swatches

Daniel Sandler kindly treated me to some of his new products from the summer collection. And today I want to show you the Luxury Glosses which I liked a lot.

There are two colours available – Skinny Dip and Vivid Energy, and both are Limited Edition.

I don’t know why but no matter how much I’ve tried, I could not capture the Vivid Energy as it looks like in real life. And it is  a bold  and vivid coral, it is definitely not so orange as it looks on the photos. It gives a glossy, juicy and opaque coverage which is just perfect for summer. Would look great with a simple eye makeup! I personally would be crazy about such an opaque fuchsia shade.

The other shade, Skinny Dip, is a perfect nudish gloss with a beautiful shimmer.  I am sure a lot of women would like it as it goes with everything and  has a perfect amount of shimmer, nothing over the top, it just makes your lips look beautiful and full. It looks great on a lot of skin tones (I have tried actually) and will look perfect on tanned skin. This one lives in my handbag now, by the way.

I really like the applicators, the are big and soft and allow a smooth application of the gloss.

Clarins All About Lips Set Review and Swatches

I was very excited to get my Clarins sets that I’ve ordered when Feel Unique had a discount so today I want to tell you about the lip glosses  set which is absolutely amazing.

Clarins All About Lips  Lip Colour Collection, £15.30

It includes:

  •  Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in 02 Caramel 7 ml
  •  Clarins  Colour Quench Lip Balm in 03 Rose Pink 7 ml
  •  Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 01 Rose Shimmer 5ml
  • Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 03 Nude Shimmer 5ml
  • Clarins Pouch

Here is a close up of the glosses.

I have heard so many raves about both, especially about the Instant Lip Perfector and now I can see why. When I tied this gloss for the first time my lips were very dry and chapped but after just several minutes they looked and felt much better! It was actually hard to believe. The gloss has a delicious scent and  a beautiful formula. The colour is  sheer and delicate, perfect for an every day use.

These are definitely in my top products now. And now I also want the shades #2  Apricot Shimmer.

As for the  Quench Lip Balm, it is  a

Yves Saint Laurent Blue Lip Gloss Pur Review and Lip Swatches

Remember my post about the blue lip glosses? So today I want to tell you about one of them – the blue Gloss Pur in #11 by YSL which is from their summer 2011 makeup collection.

I like Yves Saint Laurent glosses and already reviewed one of my Golden Glosses which you can see here.

But let’s go back to this blue baby. So what is so special about it?

The fact that it is blue! Now obviously, it doesn’t look blue on your lips but the fact that it is blue in tube makes it so special. It reminds me of the Dior gloss from the spring collection which looked grey/silver in the tube but nothing like that on the lips.

But you know what you are using and that makes it special. I have so many glosses and this one is definitely one of those that stand out when I go through my collection, it catches the eye immediately.

On the lips it

Bare Escentuals Sweet Sparklers Lipstick and Lip Gloss Set. Review and Lip Swatches

Before the holidays I won this amazing set from the Bare Escentuals  via their twitter.

It is called Sweet Sparklers and includes:

  • Mini 100% Natural Lipcolor in Sherbet (baby pink)
  • Mini 100% Natural Lipcolor in Rose Crepe (blush rose)
  • Mini 100% Natural Lipgloss in Pink Prosecco (blushing effervescence)
  • Mini 100% Natural Lipgloss in Kir Royale (twinkling sheer plum)

First of all I have to say that it looks so cute and pretty, absolutely love it!

I haven’t tried the lipsticks yet so I can’t tell you my opinion about them yet but the colours look so lovely that I am almost sure that I am going to love them both.

As for the glosses – I

Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Pin Up Review and Lip Swatches. Love It

If  you’ve been reading Makeup4all for a while you may know that I really like a lot of Rimmel lip products. So obviously I had to get the new version of the Vinyl gloss which I “accidently” picked up this month.

I was looking for something else but when I’ve noticed the #190 Pin Up gloss I actually forgot what I was looking for. That’s is really great that the price is so affordable(£4.99)  because you can actually grab a few and don’t break your bank account.

I’ve been wearing Pin Up, the beautiful glossy hot pink, non-stop ever since I’ve got it. And it looks so beautiful with my light “winter” skin. I also like that the colour is buildable, you can get a pretty intense shade with several layers.

It doesn’t
