Guerlain KissKiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm Review Chic Pink

 

Sheer lip products are all the rage this season and their popularity and proliferation have perfectly coincided with my desire for a simpler, easy lip. I’m usually a fan of matte, satin or cream finishes with plenty of pigment to boot. But since becoming a mama bear, I find that even on the days I wear a full face of makeup and rock major eyes – I’m looking for a low maintenance lip. While there are definitely many long lasting, non-transferring full color options out there – I’ve been the mood for balm-like products that offer some color. The YSL Oil In Sticks that I reviewed a couple weeks ago are fantastic but I think I may have just found the best sheer lipstick-balm hybrid product ever (as far as high end goes) in the Guerlain KissKiss Roselip in Chic Pink…

Chanel Dans La Lumiere de L’Ete Summer 2016 Collection

 

I hadn’t plan to get anything from the Chanel Summer 2016 Makeup Collection (Chanel Dans La Lumiere de L’EteIn the Light of the Summer). The press photos that I’d glimpsed prior to the collections release weren’t that appealing to me for some reason. In fact, I didn’t actually purchase anything from the collection myself. My wonderful mama surprised me by picking up some goodies during a recent trip she took. She’s fantastic like that.

A Review of Some Make Up For Ever Artisan Brushes

 

My brush collection is an amalgamation of pieces from a wide range of price points, though mostly bargain to mid-range (I’m a big fan of Sedona Lace) with a few higher end bits in there but nothing super expensive (the priciest brush I own is the NARS Ita brush which I reviewed here). Anyway, during the Sephora VIB sale a couple months ago, I was in the mood to invest in some higher end makeup brushes especially when I could get a little bit of a discount. The Make Up For Ever Artisan Brushes are not new. They were released some years ago (I believe in 2013?). Prior to purchase, I didn’t really know anything about them – but they looked appealing on the website so I took the plunge and ordered me some.

Ren Skincare Pure Glow Trio Review: A Perfect Introduction

 

The Ren Skincare Pure Glow Trio is a introductory kit that contains some of Ren’s bestselling products that promise glowing, healthier-looking skin: the Rosa Centifolia No. 1 Purity Cleansing Balm, the Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask and the Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. I was really, really excited about the trio because I’ve wanted to try the Rosa Centifolia Purity Cleansing Balm for quite some time. And the other products seemed interesting as well.

How I Fixed My Broken Lipstick

 

I’m sure this has happened to everyone (who owns lipstick) at least once. Maybe you’re in a hurry and not paying attention so you twist your lipstick up too far or maybe it’s super hot out and the lipstick has begun to melt without you realizing it. Whatever the circumstances, you go to apply your lipstick and…disaster…it smushes against your lips and breaks in half. This has happened to me at least half a dozen times. I’d tried the refrigerator trick – melting the lipstick a little, trying to stick it back together and letting it set in the fridge. This method never works for me and the lipstick always ends up breaking again. So I decided to try something different to fix my broken lipstick.

YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation & Y Foundation Brush Review

 

A sample made me do it. Speaking of which…I’ve been meaning to do one of those posts. As a beauty junkie, I’ve accumulated my share of samples over the years and purchased many a product because of them. I really ought to do a post one day on all the awesome beauty products I’ve discovered because of samples. Anyway…to the matter at hand. A couple of months ago, I’d acquired a deluxe sample of the new reformulated YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation (SPF 22). The sample shade was too dark for me but I was impressed enough with the formula to purchase a full size. While I was at it, I thought I’d also give the Touche Eclat Foundation Y-Brush a whirl.
