I was quite excited when I read about SMASHBOX’s new Megatint Long Wear Lip Colors. These are pretty matte and as the names states, give a little tint as opposed to a full-on lipstick. So how did this one wear? Click after the jump to find out and see more pictures.

NARS’s new Satin Lip Pencils are getting quite the buzz right now so I was dying to try them. They claim rich pigments in a moisturizing formula. They also infuse vitamins to
With the two dark colors lasted about 3 hours on my lips without drying them out and after the 3 hours, I was left with a light stain for another 2 hours, which was nice. Sometimes with these soft formulas, I experience color bleeding but that didn’t happen with these, phew.
How much do you truly love an all-in-one? In this case, we have a lip color, balm and anti-ager. IT COSMETICS just put out Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver. It contains a slew of everything good for lips and skin, which they have a patent on called Hydra-Luxe Technology. It is made up of plum and cherry oil, shea butter, argan and jojoba oils, vitamins A, C & E, and green and white tea extracts as well as aloe. Geesh, how do you fit all that in this tube??

I’ve long been a fan of any kind of makeup stain because of the longevity, obviously. And I may have been too harsh on a product in the next line, specifically, BENEFIT COSMETICS’ stain/tint products. See, I’m just not a fan of the nail polish brushes they use to apply the color. I just don’t get it! It’s thin and makes things streaky … I just don’t get it but many must since their Benetint has topped many-a top 10 beauty lists over the years.
I know it’s not because I am not in the mall, because I love to peruse the mall pretty often, but I have not really noticed many lines putting out small clutches that only hold a few key makeup items but is also big enough to snuggly fit today’s cel phones. I’m sure they totally exist but I guess I mean I have not seen any makeup lines put them out until now.
What’s better than presents under the tree this holiday season? SWATCHES!! I got my hands on some of MAKE UP FOREVER’s Rouge Artist Intense lippies so click after the jump to see the deets!
I totally think of Ms. Dita when it comes to SEPHORA Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red ($12 @ sephora.com). It’s thee matte bold blue red I’m always looking out for. And this one is sooo pigmented and stays where you put it. If your lips are prone to lipstick bleed, just make sure to use one like this one as lippie insurance. Made with avocado oil, the formula is really lightweight and takes a steady hand when it comes to precision. Do you dare?

Red Carpet Lip & Cheek Tint & Gloss ($18) – this one is a stain on one side and lip/eye gloss on the other but for this one it’s all about this stain. It uses the roller ball to dispense the color so just roll some on and quickly blend it in and the nice flush lasts for hours!
I also tried it as a stain for my lips but it seemed to work better on cheeks. If you just like a slight tint of color, maybe this would work for you. Available in Dress Up (berry red) and Glam up (petal pink).
Harsh lines on eyes just don’t work all the time. Sometimes you just want a little smoke and applying liner and then smoking it out can be just too many steps. So I’m loving her I-Sculpt Shadow & Liner ($17) is a quick way to swipe on some gorgeous color. One side is the liner and the other is the side is a rubber smudgy with a complementing shadow color. Available in Mary Q (charcoal), Carnaby St. (brown) and Kings Road (plum).
Leave it to one of the Kings of Red Carpet Makeup, NAPOLEON PERDIS, to come out with a totally red collection. His latest Better Off Red Collection lays out the best super duper red lippies for any occasion and in different finishes.
Here are the line-up of reds:
Front Row Red Lip Gloss ($25) – this has been my go-to for the past week or so when appropriate and is for serious red-wearers. He says it will last 10 hours but I got more like 4 out of it and it seems to start fading from the waterline out, which is convenient. And the finish is super matte so why do they call it a gloss?
Lady in Red Lip Gloss ($25) – this is more of a mauvey red and probably more wearable for more people. And the finish is more of a gloss or a creamy lipstick.
Undercover Red Lip Gloss ($25) – this self-adjusting gloss goes on clear and warms up to a red all your own but I’d say it self-adjusted to more of a medium pink.
Devine Goddess Lipstick ($22) – three different reds that will highlight different skin tones. They are not new but for sure worth noting if you are looking for a staple red for your collection.
Overall there truly is a red for every skin tone in this collection. And I’m loving the vastly different finishes of each product. Check out the below video and more @ napoleonperdis.com.
And in hot off the presses news, he will be making his QVC debut this Thursday, August 25th @ 10pm PDT/Friday, August 26 @ 1am EDT.
