Tag: Lips Of The Day
Although I do love my luxury products, this week I’ve been obsessed with two of my latest purchases from high street. The thing is that I did not even plan to get those, but saw them, liked the shades and had to pick them up.
My newest lip love is Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian.
Such a gorgeous shade and finish, it looks very glossy and beautiful on; feels light and moisturizing. On the photo below I am wearing it very lightly, you can get a much more intense shade, which I love for evenings.
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?!
I really like the High Shine Lip Gloss from Hourglass Cosmetics.
The shade that I have is called Fortune and it’s a very unique colour, or at least I don’t have anything like that. I would describe it as a warm duochrome metallic peachy pink.
The gloss comes with a brush which, as I find, applies the gloss evenly and precisely. The brand promises hydrating formula and it does glide on the lips easily and smoothly without enhancing the dry patches, lips definitely feel and look better. And it is a great bonus for winter!
I don’t find the formula to be sticky but it does have a rather strong scent which some lip products have; but I personally don’t mind at all.
I love Kate Moss. I love Rimmel lipsticks. I love bright matte lipsticks. I love black and red. It seems like those Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks were made for me!
I knew I’d love them just when I saw the first promo and I was right.
First of all I really like the simple black design with a red Kate signature. Although it is plastic, it doesn’t look cheap.
I’ve picked shade No2 several weeks ago and now I am finally writing my impression. Ok, this colour is probably not for everyone(by this I mean that not everyone would like to wear it) but I really love it. It’s a bright blue toned fuchsia pink which looks perfect with a simple eye makeup.
Although it is a matte lipstick, it doesn’t look flat and the formula is non-drying. The colour pay-off is fantastic and you get a beautiful, vibrant shade with only one layer.
The staying power is
I like almost any kind of lipstick/lip gloss but I have to admit that I am not the biggest fan of the brown(ish) lip colours. But I do actually have several brown lip products which look ok on me but I still don’t like them.
I’ve got this Lancome Color Fever lipstick in one of their combined sets. It is hard to find most Color Fever lipsticks now as most of them have been sold out but I just checked out Lancome’s website and this particular shade is still available.
This is a brownish lipstick with shiny particles. It is not bad, really. But I’d rather wear a pale pink.
As for the lipstick itself, I love it. I like how it feels on the lips, it stays on for some time, doesn’t fade soon and is not too drying as some lipsticks. Moreover, I have several Lancome lipsticks and I like them all.
