I already failed my personal challenge of one week’s reviews of lip glosses right after _one_ post. ^^;;; But I’ll try to make up for the past three days. Today, I’ll be showing the Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights and reviewing one Lip Glace from it. I have another to be up later although not a lip gloss review.
Anyway, the Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights was part of Laura Mercier’s Holiday/Winter release last year. The moment I saw it from a few beauty bloggers, I knew I just had to have it. It was an awesome gift for myself that I remember forgetting that stressful day at work when I got this. 🙂
A high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture.
This week _I shall challenge myself_ to blog about lip glosses. Good luck to me! Because you know how I can be such a procrastinator. 😛
I’m trying to like NYX lip products. Well, lip products are what I only own from them. I can’t say I fully like them. The NYX Butter Glosses are a hype over a lot of many beauty bloggers. I thought I should try as well. I got the Cherry Pie shade.
Cherry Pie is a red lip gloss that can be layered from slight sheer to very opaque coverage. The size of the lip gloss’s brush applicator is right for my thin lips. I forgot to take a picture of that. LOL
Do you remember this post? Among the three, I’ll be reviewing first the NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage. (If I review in order of my purchase, it should be the MAC first, then Laura Mercier, and NARS would be the last.)
The NARS Pure Matte Lipstick was supposed to still be in my wishlist. I just couldn’t keep myself from buying it right away after when I saw this picture of Emma Stone rockin’ the lipstick:
My L’Absolu Rouge is from a three-piece set which is a gift from my generous Aunt/Ninang. 😀 I wanted a different shade, instead she gave me this set. I’m not complaining. Three lipsticks against one? I’ll gladly and gratefully take the three-piece.
Aah~ More than a year since I had this lipstick for this review to be done.
Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge line boasts of having advanced replenishing and reshaping lipcolor. It contains Pro-Xylane™ that keeps lips moist, soft and comfortable for up to 8 hours. The SPF12 provides lips with protection. The regular-sized L’Absolu Rouge is 4.2ml/3.99/0.14oz; similar to Laura Mercier’s Crème Lip Colour. I believe all L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks have a satin finish. They also have a flowery scent that I quite like.
Ah red… The symbol of fire, energy, passion and danger… I love this colour.
Although, I have always been hesitant about using bright red lipstick, mainly, in fear of looking like a clown. The trouble with my lips is that these babies already look full-shaped and I feel that highlighting them would only make my mouth bigger. Then there are just some people who automatically assume I’m off for another night of cavorting whenever I wear bright red lipstick. I can’t blame them, I exude sexy when I wear red… LOLJK!
There are days when I don’t feel like or just don’t to wear lipstick or pigmented lip gloss. Today is one of those days. Instead, I use lip balms. This is also to condition my lips as frequent use of lipsticks, even though some may be moisturizing, dries them eventually. I have lots of lips balms; from clear to having a bit of tint and in variety of flavors. Currently, I switch among three lip balms including this Care Bear Friend Bear Lip Balm in French Vanilla that I found in a dollar store:
If you read my recent hauls post, then you know the story behind this purchase. If not, well then — I was very curious about Black Honey because of its many good reviews. The curiosity led to wanting that it didn’t matter if I have a budget at the time. I had Joiz accompany me. Unfortunately, Black Honey was out of stock then. But I didn’t want to leave without something! And since I was curious about the Almost Lipstick line, I chose something else so I got Spicy Honey (and a few more as that was the time Joiz and I got a lot from Clinique XD;).
