Ultimate Valentine’s Day lip gloss! ;)))

Weekend Lip:  Lime Crime “Cherry on Top” Glitter Lip Gloss
—-
Can you believe that is just lip gloss? No liner, no lipstick, nothing as a base?
I couldn’t resist snapping off a pic just before running out the door for my appointment, just to show how pigmented it is. 
If shades like MAC’s Girl About Town are a little too blue based for you, or you like the idea of a high-shine fuchsia bordering on poppy-red, this is the perfect one. The web site shows it as more red than it actually appears on the lips. Despite the glitter, it’s actually a very lady-like and pretty lip color. (I can’t get the sparkles to show up in this quick-pic because the particles are extremely fine, but I’ll do swatches and a more detailed review soon!)
Cherry on Top is a limited edition gloss in the Carousel Gloss collection, which will be on sale until end of Feb, so check it out if you’re in the mood for a little Valentine’s Day hauling!

And don’t forget Centrifuchsia on the lips, which looks amazing against medium skin tones.

Liu Wen for Estee Lauder in Magenta Lips and Seriously Winged Eyes

Now THIS is a way to wear a winged eye when you have mono-lids! Of course, the pain is getting both sides to look about even. (Actually hers aren’t but we’ll let it go since she’s fabulous.)
The 2 tips if you want to attempt this:
Keep your eyes half open when applying so you can actually see how it will appear.
Use tape diagonally along the outer ends of the bottom lash line as a stencil for your wing.

Psychedelic Cyclamen Ombre Lips: Rimmel Color Show-off in 220 Shocking Pink and Lime Crime D’Lilac (plus tips)
—-
When you combine 2 shades that look really vibrant and saturated on camera, you get day-glo Cyclamen lips like the above. 
Instead of going for a typical dark shade to contrast against the pale creamy lilac, I went for a strong red-fuchsia in a matte texture.
Tips for perfect ombre lips:
Pick opaque lip colors because anything slippery or sheer is not going to give you that saturated gradient effect
Apply one shade on each lip, leaving the inner rims bare first, then swop the lipsticks for each lip, and very lightly run the second shade along the inner bit of your lips before pressing with your fingers to blend the edges into the first shade better.
Press just the center of the lips together to even out the “mixed” shade, and smooth in with your finger again if the color gets uneven.
If the outer rims of your lips are no longer as vibrant looking due to all the blending and pressing, touch up just the top and bottoms of lips lightly to replace the color.
Looks good with:
Dramatic black winged liner. It actually looks very “cyber-geisha” in real life.
(This is fun and dramatic, but not exactly something you should wear to your next meal. It will take you too much time to touch up.)

Everyone’s favorite nude, Coquette, gets reviewed & comparison-swatched!

My Favorite Nude Lip: Lime Crime Coquette Swatches and Review

—-

Finding the perfect nude lipstick is like finding the perfect red. It’s hard because it’s different for everybody. I don’t know why it took so long for me to try Lime Crime’s Coquette, considering I bought so many of their other lip colors.

I guess I just figured I should only get the unconventional shades because a nude is so easily accessible from most brands. Right? Wrong. I just wore it to work and got 3 compliments on the shade before lunch.

—-


Color:

It’s not a concealer-nude on my NC25 skin, but it will be if you are deeper-toned than NW25 or NC30.

I love it on my skin because it’s got some warmth/pink in the formula (see the swatches against Barry M and Revlon above) and not too pale, too grey, or too brown. Because I have so little red in my skin, wearing something too brown or pale makes me look like a walking corpse. This, for me, has a hint of blush in it and is perfect for that kitten-ish Brigitte Bardot look with dark lids and lots of liner and mascara.

Opacity/Texture:

When I swiped this on, I was first impressed by how I did not need any lip primer to even out my lip tone ahead of time. Coquette went on in an even layer and didn’t sink into lines like some sheer or waxy pale lipsticks can. It goes on creamy (like a MAC Amplified Creme) and sets into a satin finish an hour later, which is perfect for me.

Wear:

This is not meant to be a long-wearing lipstick but it’s lasted pretty darned well so far. After about 3-4 hours of wear (with plenty of talking and some drinking), it will become less opaque and settle into lip lines a little, but that’s only noticeable if you hold a mirror a few inches from your lips and stare), but that’s much less than other nude lipsticks have. I only need to press my lips together every once in awhile to even it out, and then touch up after I eat.

It also does not make my sensitive lips flake or feel too dry.

Scent:

Unoffensive, comforting Vanillin flavor, like MAC.

Coquette retails for US$15.99 on Limecrimemakeup.com.
