The New “It” Lip: Tangerine Pop
—-
According to Allure magazine, the new “It” shade for lips in Spring/Summer 2012 is Tangerine. 
Well, let me just say first that orange is not a color I ever liked on its own. But it somehow looks so gorgeous and so much more bold on the lips than red or coral! 

Sometimes, you just want something loud, but nice. 
ONE WORD OF CAUTION!
Please trim your beards, ladies. 
This shade can make you any hairs or blue-based discolorations around your lips look more obvious, so make sure you check (even if you don’t think you have a visible mustache). If you have genetic discolorations around your lips, you may have to use a peach-toned corrector under your powder or concealer.

Options:
For drugstore ranges, there is L’oreal Volanic Lipstick (which I’ve read about but never seen in stores. If you can get hold of one, swatch it and reply to this post please!) There’s also Milani 42 Mandarina which is quite close to MAC Morange but maybe a touch redder.
From the higher end brands, there is the ever-fabulous MAC Morange, as well as the more daring My Beautiful Rocket from Lime Crime. Both have quite a similar creamy texture and are highly pigmented.
In the lip swatch photo (NC25 skin), you can see the differences in the 2 shades. These are definitely not “just coral”. They are really and truly orange. Morange has a bit more coral thrown in, so it’s good for those who have more red/pink in their skin tones, or are a bit new to this whole “tangerine lip” thing and don’t quite dare to go all-out yet.
My Beautiful Rocket is the more unapologetic orange, and more of a statement lip because it’s noticeably less red than most other orange lipsticks on the market. If you want lips like below, a more red-toned alternative is just not going to cut it.

Either way, put either of these shades on and watch everyone’s eyes pop when they catch sight of your face!

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.

ALCHEMY: A New Spellbinding Collection From Lime Crime
October 13th, Lime Crime will release a makeup collection unlike any other. Inspired by the swirling transmutations of an alchemist’s potion, ALCHEMY will materialize at midnight in the form of an eyeshadow palette, two brand new lipsticks and a “mook”. Five duochromatic eyeshadows, shifting from one color to another depending on the angle, are a first for Lime Crime. Lipsticks, while retaining the same color-intense formula the brand is known for, will boast a lustrous finish reminiscent of the skin of a wet snake — also a first. Rounding out the concoction is the Alchemy “mook”: a collectible, limited-edition magazine/book featuring a magical photostory with a bonus section of ‘Beauty Potions’ for every practitioner’s fancy.
The face of the collection is the bewitching songstress and style icon, Lola Blanc. (Read more…)
