Chanel Rouge Allure Ink

Chanel-Rouge-Allure-Inks
CHANEL Rouge Allure Ink
($37 @ chanel.com) is the brand’s answer to the liquid lipstick craze and I was able to get my hands on 4 of them to review and swatch. Like most lippies, some shades performed better than others.

What it is: A long-lasting liquid lipstick with a smooth texture that glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish. Polymers, waxes and plant oils smooth and nourish lips, while Jojoba Oil and a unique anti-oxidant complex offer hydration and protective benefits. The applicator tip allows for comfortable and easy application. In a provocative range of red-tint shades, from tart pink to deep brown-noir.

Rimmel Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners

Rimmel-Wonder-Ombre-Holographic-Eyeliners
I didn’t realize it but I guess from this post, I am pretty into the whole holographic trend as now I’m really into these liners from RIMMEL. These are their Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners ($5.49 @ target.com). One side is a holo and the other is a dark liner in that shade category.

Rimmel-Wonder-Ombre-Holographic-Eyeliners-swatches
From L to R: Super Nova Sky (blue), Galactic Green (green), Purple Prism (purple), Golden Gaze (gold).

I have not seen holographic color come in many pencil forms like this so it’s nice to be able to add a precise dash of holographic delight anywhere you want.

Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

Benefit-Bad-gal-Bang-Mascara
Mascara is a funny thing – either it works for you or it doesn’t, but how could one “work” for someone and not someone else? Interesting, huh? The latest one to cross my desk is BENEFIT COSMETICS BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara ($24/full size, $12/travel size @ benefitcosmetics.com, ulta.com, sephora.com) and they call this one the BIGGER, BADDER volumizing mascara.

Sephora Collection Holographic Face & Cheeks Palette

Sephora-Collection-Holographic-Face-&-Cheek-Palette-main
I want to know exactly where the Sephora brand manufactures their makeup products, specifically their press shadows as these act much more expensive than they cost! And they are bigger than a regular shadow. To give you an accurate scale, a NARS Blush clocks in at 4.8 grams and these are 3.2 grams, so not bad since there are 6 shades and the cost is $28 @ sephora.com.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Holographic Face & Cheek Palette contains the following:

  • Three Transformers in Green, Blue, Pink.
  • Three Matte Blush in Warm Rose, Purple, Pink.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow + Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

Beneift-Cosmetics-Gimme-Brow-+-Volumizing-Fiber-Gel
I’m pretty obsessed with my eyebrows! I had microblading done last fall and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made when it comes to them. Most times I don’t have to touch them up with pencil/powder but when I do, I’m reaching for one that will give me a little something extra, like what this brought-back-into-production and newly-formulated Gimme Brow + Volumizing Fiber Gel ($24 @ benefitcosmetics.com, hsn.com) from BENEFIT COSMETICS gives them.

Stellar Beauty Magnetic Solar Eyeshadow Palette

Stellar-Beauty-Magnetic-Eyeshadow-Palette-in-Solar
If I was asked for the shades I find as crucial and necessary for any palette to include these days, I would say the ones found in this palette, the STELLAR BEAUTY Magnetic Eyeshadow Palette in Solar ($42 only @ sephora.com).

Out of the 10 total shades, there’s a vanilla one, or as they describe it, a light rose pink, for all over the lid, three darker mattes for contouring and then six metallic/shimmery ones.

Butter London Glazen Blush Gelée

Butter-LONDON-Glazen-Blush-Gelee-in-Dazzle
Anything that delivers a product in a unique way always seems to catch my eye. And the latest is the Glazen Blush Gelee show here in the mauve shade of Dazzle ($26 @ butterlondon.com, ulta.com) from BUTTER LONDON. It’s a highly pigmented thick jelly that applies best to cheeks with fingers and dries down to an unmovable powder finish. The color is buildable and a little goes a long way. 

And don’t look to the 3 available shades for any kind of matte finish. Each has a pearly and slightly iridescent finish (from the mica inside) that will beg you to make cheeks your front-and-center feature. And why not? The cheeks rarely get to be.
