Chanel Glossimer "Brilliance" & "Twinkle"

Image
These are two of my favorite Chanel Glossimers!  "Brilliance" is a gorgeous white-pink with silver frost (very pale lilac).  It is such an amazing color!  I love wearing this shade in the summertime.  Looooove!
The other Glossimer I love is "Twinkle", which is a pink with gold and opal shimmer to it.  This is SO pretty!  I kid you not.  This shade will really make your lips "pop".  Looks great on its own, or lip liner or over a gorgeous rosy-pink lipstick.  This is my "all-time" fave Glossimer!  It looks amazing on a tan complexion.  Twinkle just screams SEXY!





Mineral Fusion Lip Pencil "Burnish"

Image
Mineral Fusion manufactures a complete line of mineral cosmetics and skin care products.  I have not tried any of their makeup, although when I went to check it out at my local Whole Foods, I was quite impressed with this line.  



Glo Minerals is their sister company; however, I think the products are very different from the Mineral Fusion line, because the Mineral Fusion line has a higher amount of natural and botanical ingredients, thus why it is sold at Whole Foods.  I'm not certain if Mineral Fusion is sold in every Whole Foods store, so you might want to check online first. 
I was in the market for a new lip liner pencil and I found "Burnished" which looked like it would be a good shade for the summer months because it's a nice deep-bronzy color that has a bit of shimmer.  I really like this lip liner; it applies very smoothly and is long-lasting.  I must say, I was quite surprised that a mineral-based lip liner would be this good.

More Rosy Lippies: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: "Smoky Rose" & "Prim-Rose"

Image
I dug-up my other rosy Revlon lippies and I was going to include it in my previous post:  "War of the Roses", but that post was starting to get WAY too long, so I decided to just post these separately!
The first shade is "Smoky Rose", which I absolutely adore!  It's a medium-warm-rose with pearl--one of my faves!
The second shade is "Prim-Rose", which I don't love so much and hardly ever wear this one.  It really does not do much for me.  I think I purchased this one because it was featured in "Allure" magazine, last year as one of their picks.  

"Prim-Rose" is a pretty nude-pale-rose "creme"...you can wear it with a nice rosy lip liner and top it with some sparkly gloss to give it some dimension, but this one is not one of my faves.  I do think it would look lovely for those with a cooler/pale complexion.






Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: "Rosedew", "Blushed", "Satin Plum" & "Demure"

Here is my new collection of Revlon lippies that I picked-up at Ulta.  They were having a bogo sale, so it was the perfect time to experiment with Revlon.  It's been some time since I purchased any Revlon products at all.  Their lipsticks won't break the bank, so you don't feel as guilty when selecting a few to try.  I purchased four lipsticks for under $20.00!!  You can't do that with MAC, YSL or Chanel, lol;)  
Like I said, it's been awhile and I had forgotten how creamy and moisturizing this lippies are!  I would not say they are the most pigmented lipsticks, like say, MAC lippies are.  However, they are pretty darn good and come in so many colors!
Keep in mind that I am not a professional photographer and I don't have the best camera in the world, but I tried to capture the true colors the best I could :P
Lipsticks are just one of those things that is really hard to capture in pictures because the color can look so different depending on the lighting and angle…
