Review+Swatches - MAC Moody Blooms Collection

It’s been a bit since I wrote about any MAC products so here is a nice colorful collection, the Moody Blooms Collection.

What It Is: Exotic, night-blooming flowers with a hint of danger inspire a hothouse of seductive shades. Sensual colours shroud eyes in earthy metallic. Eye Shadows and lips suggest hidden motives with deep blue plum and dark berry hues of Sheen Supreme Lipstick. Bronze Powder Blush provides a final adrenaline surge before these beauties dissolve into the night.

Review+Swatches - Dolce&Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick

DOLCE & GABBANA just added some new Classic Cream Lipstick colors as part of the Spring 2014 collection and I’ve got two for you to see! Bonbon (pale pink) and Bellissima (orange-based pink).

The quality of the shiny gold tube, embossed with the Dolce&Gabbana logo, and rose scent of the actual lipstick is classy and makes me feel like a true woman. And the cap makes a “click” when it closes, which was specially designed to evoke the sound made by lipstick tubes in the fifties. I guess I never really noticed that most lipstick tubes don’t make this noise anymore. Will have to pay attention more!

Review+Swatches - Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with lip gloss. While I love the look of a nice glossy colored lip, I don’t always like the feel. Some make me feel like my lips are suffocating. Does this happen to you? I’ve mentioned it here a few times but I do have to say, these TARTE COSMETICS LipSurgence Lip Gloss ($19 @ tartecosmetics.com and sephora.com) DO. NOT. SUFFOCATE! This is an extremely important issue for me. Like if I’m wearing gloss or testing one out, if I can constantly feel it on my lips, I’ll usually not wear that one again, which is why I tend to review more lipsticks on the site.

Review+Swatches - Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick

I think the lipstick formula that tops my list these days has to be liquid lipsticks. The colors, the texture, the longevity of them, they just seem to perform really well on my lips. The latest to hit the market with a total buzz is TOO FACED Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21 @ sephora.com and toofaced.com) and these seem to be right up my alley, but are they really?

Review+Swatches - BITE Beauty Matte Lip Crayons

Kind of obsessed with bright lip colors so when I got hold of BITE BEAUTY Matte Crème Lip Crayons ($24 @ sephora.com), ooo, I was in heaven! I mean, look at these juicy bright shades! And each triple-milled lippie contains orange peel wax, which makes these smell great too, organic fruit butters, jojoba and castor oil and 5mg of resveratrol to fight free radicals … on the lips. I didn’t know lips aged really. We know around them does but on them?

And one other question is that with all those butters in the formula, how in the heck do these maintain a matte finish? This is true technology at its finest cuz I’m truly wow’d by these.

Review+Swatches - Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Like BB Creams, it seems that every line has gotten into the chubby lip balm but ain’t complaining! CLINIQUE’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17 @ clinique.com and sephora.com) are big on moisture (Shea and mango butter) and have a better color payoff then most of these thick balms with color that I’ve tried.
