Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Hey Everyone!

Sometimes you want a lighter lippie option in the summer. Tomorrow, it will be in the 90s in the Carolinas, and I plan on keeping a very light yet cute face for the heat.

mark. cosmetics has come out with a new lippie, Glossworks Longwear Lip Gloss in 8 colors.  Check out below swatches and review on this summer ready gloss!!

 From the left to right: Tempest, Plume, Exhale, Tropica, Roseland, Voila, Parasol, and Cinnabomb.

These Glossworks glosses are some of the best glosses I have came across in a loonnnnggg time!! I haven't been wearing gloss because the ones I've used are not pigmented enough for me and are a sticky mess.  Glossworks are a good, medium pigmentation, not liquid lipstick pigment but not sheer. As you can see from the lip swatches of Tropica, Tempest and Voila, I only applied one coat and that is what you see.

The packaging and applicator( a lip brush handle) remind me of MAC Dazzleglass. The packaging is similar and the application of gloss is the same.

The formula is a bit sticky but seems to warm to the lips and gets smoother. They also wear very well, only coming off when you eat or wipe it entirely off.

Definitely grab a neutral shade like Roseland or Cinnabomb and add Voila and Tempest to your haul!!

Disclosure: These products were sent to me for consideration for review. I was not paid for the post. All opinions and views and are honest and truthful. 

~Swatches and First Impressions~ Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers.....

Hey Everyone!!

I happened to spot the highly anticipated Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers over two weeks ago in Walgreens. I skipped purchasing any because they were not limited edition, so I didn't feel the need to buy right then and there.

But the next week was bananas! The swatches, the looks, the reviews, the videos of these glosses were burning a hole in a product addicted spirit!

 I went back to Walgreens ( 40 minutes away) and grabbed a "few". They are $4.99 but there are several colors, I think 12 in all.

First Impressions....

I've been wearing these since Sunday and I will say....they are ALL the hype everyone is claiming them to be!! Highly pigmented, smooth, moisturizing, gorgeous, inexpensive....all worth it!! Rimmel priced these extremely reasonable at $4.99 but they are limited to only Walgreens. Some people don't like the smell but I don't actually smell anything weird about them. And I smell everything. lol! I'm tempted to go and pick up some other colors but I'm really happy the shades I have, so I skip hauling anymore.:)
