Lip of the Day LOTD #3 Mac Lovelorn

 

 

A few months ago I purchased some Mac samples from a website called The Body Needs.

At that time they came in little tubes like this.

I understand now they’ve changed to a clamshell for their samples.

Sorry for the bad pictures below, the light is terrible in my house today.

Lip of the Day LOTD #2 L’Oreal Coulour Riche leGloss 155 Saucy Mauve

It’s Friday.  I’m sorry, today’s lip is kind of boring.  I was feeling lazy.

This is L’Oreal’s Colour Riche leGloss in 155 Saucy Mauve.

L’Oreal says it provides:

Extreme Shine.
Supreme Creaminess.
Ultra-hydrating Argan Oil & Omega 3.

I didn’t know it had Argan Oil until just now.  I don’t feel that there is any stickiness at all to this gloss.  It does in fact feel like the texture of an oil when you apply it.

I just looked up the definition of mauve and it says a moderate purple, violet or lilac color with more grey and blue undertones.  Saucy Mauve does not look mauve to me.  It’s more of a rusty color.  As you can see in the above swatch it does have some shimmer.  When looking at the tube I thought they were gold shimmers, but when I wiped the swatch off my hand they were left behind and they appeared to be iridescent.

This is a really natural looking color on my lips.  It’s highly glossy!

 

The Body Needs - Frosted Coral

Lip of the Day LOTD #1 The Body Needs Frosted Coral – NEW SERIES

I’ve decided to start my new blog off with a lip of the day (LOTD) series.  I’m using it as motivation to wear more of the lip products I have in my stash.  I’ll try to post most days with a picture and a swatch.  I’m not good at determining wear time (I snack too much during the day!) so I probably won’t mention that unless I notice something incredible.

Bear with me as I try to figure out the best way to take pictures.

Let’s start!

The Body Needs - Frosted Coral

The Body Needs – Frosted Coral

Today’s lip features Frosted Coral from The Body Needs.  This product is called a Lip Luster.  According to The Body Needs it is:

Soft, silky and not sticky! A slight stain remains after the long kiss … pamper your lips!

It is quite soft and feels moisturizing on the lips.

If frosted lipstick makes you think of old ladies and the eighties this might not be for you.  However, I find it to be quite flattering.  I think it would look beautiful on darker skin tones too.

I would describe the color as a a light coral with a pink frost.
