Tag: luxury lip gloss
Please the excuse the lack of updates recently, I could give you all of the reasons for that. But, truth be told, I was not inspired to write here for some time. And I can’t think of anything worse than a
half-arsed forced feature on beauty. However, I did post Insta stories almost daily.
But the other day I saw that makeup products which made me go all: “Oh, I want that”. And that does not happen that often so it deserves a mention.
Meet the new Bite Beauty Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss.
Shown are the shades: Rose Meringue, shimmering warm rose and Guava Puff, shimmering nude pink
While I am
If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of some Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent for a review, so here is a long time promised feature about their Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess gorgeous glosses.
There are six shades in the range, and I actually have five of them. The missing shades is CHERRY CLAFOUTIS which is described as a “gloss version of the ‘Scrumptiously Devious’ lipstick, sheer blue based cool pink with a warm golden opalescence”. And I actually have a review of the lipstick here.
The shades I have are (descriptions from Rouge Bunny Rouge):
FLEUR PARFAIT, Cushiony-soft semi-opaque mauve pink, with subtle silver highlights
MOUSSE FANDANGO, Dark tone of milky pink with barest whispers of grayish mauve and touch of silver micro pearls
RAHAT LOKUM, Pale milky pink with medium-heavy mother of pearl effect micro-shimmer
RASPBERRY MERINGUE, Pale pink with very soft mother of pearl micro-shimmer – this shade doesn’t yield a strong colour, but it makes lips naturally pretty
RHUBARB CUSTARD, Semi sheet coverage milky nude rosewood – irreplaceable my-lips-but-better colour
My personal favourite is Raspberry Meringue which is actually always in my handbag. It is a gorgeous cool-toned pink with micro-shimmer. Love me some sparkles!
The other shade that I use a lot is Rahat Lokum which is heavier on the shimmer and warmer in tone. I am actually wearing it as I type.
Rhubarb Custard is a great option for those who like “nude” lip glosses. It is a creamy and balmy every day kind of shade. No shimmer.
As for Mousse Fandango – RBR have a really
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!
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
Lancome just launched the new gloss called Gloss in Love with twelve shades to choose from. We are promised 6 hours of moisture and smooth, line-free vinyl lip look.
The promo is very girly and fresh, the face of the line is Emma Watson.
All the glosses are divided into family colours with 200 Just Strass which, a Clear Shimmer Top Coat with Irredescent Glitter.
The other shades are:
- 222 Fizzy Rosie – Nude Brown with Golden Shimmer
- 351 Lily en Lame – Mauve with Irredescent Sparkle
- 144 Glittermania – Bright Pinky Coral with Golden Shimmer
- 146 Peach Show – Light
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.
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
