  1.  Your Lips But Better All-Day Waterproof Lip Liner Stain ($20):  This long lasting lip liner comes in nine shades, but your perfect pink is probably Je Ne Sais Quoi.

Ingredients are amazing, including Peptides, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, hydrating Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe, and Jojoba so lips stay soft and supple.  Another bonus?  Lots of Anti-Aging antioxidants including Vitamins A, C, E, Acai, Green Tea and White Tea to protect against free-radicals.Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi

This is a truly gorgeous lip smoothing lipstick with terrific ingredients like Collagen, Peptides, Hyaluronic Filling Spheres, Shea Butter, Jojoba and Grape Seed Extract. Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill is available in 9 other colors, with Je Ne Sais Quoi the latest in the collection. Je Ne Sais Quoi is brighter in this incarnation than it is in others and is a truly perfect medium pink.Vitality Lip Flush Hydrating Lip Gloss Soft Stain
  5. Vitality Lip Flush Hydrating Lip Gloss Soft Stain ($24):  Perhaps your perfect pink is this non-sticky lip gloss that has a great wear time. The Je Ne Sais Quoi shade is a soft, milky pink that gives a light stain of color with lots of shine and slip. There are three shades that are 50% the stain amount of their original stains, which means a more natural flush of color. I adore how this feels on my lips – massively hydrating with the best slip ever.

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick, Liquid Lip Lure, and Eye Crayon are wonders and so is this giveaway

wonderwomanThe recent SkinStore survey got me thinking…most women’s go to lipstick for enhancing confidence is a nude shade, not a colorful one. I must be abnormal, because I grab the colorful option every time. Add some black eye liner and I am as confident as Wonder Woman.

Illamasqua has some beautiful options that I reach for time after time, including the Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch, Liquid Lip Lure in Embers, and Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E.                                                                     samples

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick, Lip Lure, Colouring Pencil

Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch ($19.50) is a gorgeous cool toned blue-based pink. The formula is incredibly creamy and the lasting power is just insane.  Illamasqua KitschIllamasqua Kitsch

Rocking no makeup except Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch

Rocking no makeup except Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Kitsch

This lipstick leaves my lips soft and hydrated and the color gradually wears off without leaving a nasty ring around the edges or cracking and peeling. The medium pink is just bright enough to give me a quick boost of ‘don’t even think about messing with me’!

Illamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in EmbersIllamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in EmbersIf I am feeling more warm than cool, I reach for Illamasqua Liquid Lip Lure in Embers ($19.50). This hot orange is truly hot, hot, hot, and I am absolutely on fire when I wear it. It has a very intense pigment and, like the lipstick, the wear time is incredible. If you want a slightly less intense look, blot right after application. You’ll still be throwing elbows and taking names for hours.

Illamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.EIllamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.ESome bright lipstick and eyeliner are all I need to make me feel like I can do anything. I love eye pencils because they are so quick – and I am ALWAYS running late – and the Illamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E. is a wonderfully sooty black that gives my eyes definition without being overly dramatic – just enough so that everyone knows I mean business. This eye pencil glides on and doesn’t smudge. I love it.

I am sure you can find your own Illamasqua power colors – just head on over to SkinStore and take a look!  – Lisa

And now for a giveaway and it’s WW this time. We have three lip products for one Beauty Info Zone subscriber.

buxom-logo-d

Buxom Cosmetics has gone all out this holiday season with 2 Lip Sets that are stunning, wantable, and usable. These were sent for review but I’ve been too busy wearing them to review. Now that the holidays are coming up in 2 weeks I better share so you can see what’s available by them.

Buxom 6* Below Sexy

Buxom 6* Below Sexy

6 Degrees Below Sexy is an affordable and beautiful set of 6 plumping mini Full On Lip Polishes. The shades are sparkly and are party perfect. They range from clear to dark so you’ll find a shade for every occasion. All of these gorgeous shades are named after femme fatales: Dominique (glittering ice), Amy (golden nude), Celeste (prismatic soft peach), Clair (starry plum haze), Starr (brandy cordial), Jasmine (black cherry)

“This sheer, high-shine lip polish creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips with a refreshing tingling sensation and gentle plumping effect. Infused with vitamins A and E, the lip formula helps keep your lips soft, supple, and protected to ensure your smoothest moves ever. ” Sold at both Ulta and Sephora.

BUXOM FREEZES OVER is on sale right now at Sephora and Ulta. At $59 it was already a great buy with 15 lip colors and 3 finishes but for $45 it’s a steal that you need to get on ASAP.

Can’t you just hear the screams of delight from someone who receives this? The 15 products are one of 3 formulas: Full On Lip Polish which are sheer plumping glosses, Fill On Lip Cream which is also a gloss formula yet they are opaque and last longer, then there are the Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipsticks and those are a combo of matte and cream.

Full On Lip Polish shades are Emma (opulent opal), Sandy (almost naked), Sugar (pink truffle), Nicole (shimmering strawberry) and Jane (huckleberry jam). As you can see they have a sheerness to them and look great over a coordinating lipstick. These have a nice plumping effect and there’s a rich caramel fragrance to them.

Full On Lip Cream shades are White Russian (pink nude), Dolly (dusty mauve), Berry Blast (vivid fuchsia),  LE Sangria (ripe cherry), and Berry Bramble which is LE to the set (rich boysenberry). The Lip Creams are more opaque and last longer on my lips. They have a vanilla fragrance to them.

Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipsticks bring you the depth and longevity you are looking for all year round. They have a matte like finish but they have a buttery look and feeling to them. They aren’t ultra matte so they don’t look drying. Buxom says they have the pigment of a lipstick with the comfort of a gloss.

Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipsticks

The shades are Devious Dolly (sultry mauve), Criminal (black violet), Centerfold (warm nude), Lover (raspberry) and Dominatrix (true red). I don’t notice a fragrance with these.

My favorite of the sets I have is the Endless Shine Trio. I love the 3 Lip Shines that come in this set. They are just the right size, just the right cool colors and just the right texture. While they are a tad sticky upon application, once they are on you won’t notice anything but great color and moisture for your lips.

The trio contains Blush, Wink, and Flutter each having a different color and flavor.

You can’t go wrong with Burt’s Bees ever but with all the gift sets they have for this holiday season you really can’t go wrong. Having one or two tucked away for that surprise guest that you need a gift for is perfect with a Burt’s Bees set. Right now at Target if you buy 2 Burt’s Bees items you’ll also get a free $5 reward card and who doesn’t love shopping at Target? And don’t forget the rule: one for you and one for me!  —  Marcia

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss review and swatches: Lilac, Pink Sapphire, and Berry Frost

Osmosis +Colour Lip GlossThe BIZ has reviewed quite a few Osmosis +Colour Cosmetics products that we love – the Longwear Liquid Foundation, Age Defying Treatment Concealer, Colour Blush, and Cashmere Longwear Matte Lipsticks just to name a few. Today I have three of the beautiful +Colour Lip Glosses ($19) for your consideration: Lilac, Pink Sapphire, and Berry Frost, all great shades that are definite winners.

The Lip Gloss is thick with a slightly sticky yet still creamy texture. It has a good wear time and high shine. The shades feature 3-dimensional pigments that make lips look full and lush. While they all have shimmer, the shimmers don’t migrate (thank goodness because no one loves chin shimmer – no one.) The lip gloss is hydrating, thanks to the jojoba and sunflower oils, and the glosses play well by themselves or with lip liner and/or lipstick.

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Lilac

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Lilac

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Lilac

Lilac is a sheer pink/purple. It’s truly a barely there color that adds plenty of shine and shimmer to lips along with a very slight tint. It’s a great choice for low maintenance days or for layering over lip liner.

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Pink Sapphire

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Pink Sapphire

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Pink Sapphire

Pink Sapphire is a rich pink.  I love this shade…it’s the perfect everyday lip gloss that gives just enough color and shine to lips to work with pretty much any outfit in any situation. It has a slight luminescence that makes it different from any other shade in my collection.

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Berry Frost

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Berry Frost

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Berry Frost

Berry Frost is a berry pink. Does this shade scream winter or what? It’s a wonderful holiday color that is ensconced in my purse for the season. Like Pink Sapphire, it has just a hint of luminescence that really gives it depth and makes lips look lush.

Osmosis +Colour Lip Gloss in Berry Frost, Lilac, and Pink Sapphire

You can find these online at the Osmosis site and at dermstore.com. Dermstore has some pretty cool specials right now, including a Gift with Purchase of an Osmosis Colour Concealer ($33 Value) with any $25 Osmosis Colour purchase.  – Lisa

Cleure Mineral Blush in First Kiss

Cleure Mineral Blush in First Kiss

Loose Mineral Blush from Cleure comes in 2 shades –  First Kiss and Velvet Rose. First Kiss is a soft pink with just a touch of peach to it while Velvet Rose is a merlot wine shade. Having both would be ideal since you could mix them in different proportions to create an entire wardrobe of mineral blush. These cruelty free blushes are gluten free, bismuth chloride free as well as being paraben and salicylate free. These are finely milled and easy to apply.

Cleure Mineral Lip Gloss in Berry

Cleure Mineral Lip Gloss in Berry

For a beautiful fall lip you’ll fall in love with Cleure Mineral Lip Gloss in Berry. Cleure only makes this in two shades which is a shame since it’s a very moisturizing gloss that’s made with 100% pure shea butter, minerals and Vitamin B5. Since it’s gluten free and vegan it can be used by everyone without a problem.

The best Halloween candy? Hard Candy!

Hard Candy Halloween!
Halloween is almost here, so hurry up and head to Walmart for the best candy…Hard Candy, that is! I am having so much fun with some great new shades that are fantastic for Halloween and beyond. Check out the latest and greatest!                                                                                                                                                                    *samples

Hard Candy Top 10 Satin in Lap of Luxury, $6:  10 – yes, count them, 10 – beautiful neutral shades from creamy tan to deep brown in a variety of finishes. You just can’t go wrong for this price. I love the tufted pink fabric compact, as well as the range of colors, although the shimmery shades have a tendency towards fallout that can be avoided by using an eye primer. It has everything you could need for any costume and this is a palette you will use all year round.

Hard Candy Halloween doesn’t stop at eyes – where it truly excels is LIPS.

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lip Gloss, $5 – Now this is some daring lip gloss! This super intense lip gloss has a great brush wand and is full of argan and citrus oils to moisturize and soften lips. There are 16 different shades available – absolutely everything you could want for any Halloween costume.

I was sent four different shades to test: Hey DJ, a bright purple/pink; Trophy Wife, a stunning orangey-bronze; So Fresh, a shimmery light green; and Skyfall, a creamy sky blue. My daughter tried all four shades to see which would best compliment her costume this year.

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss Trophy Wife

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss Trophy Wife

Trophy Wife is certainly the most tame of the four shades, but the color is still intense and oh-so perfect for fall. Really gorgeous and for just $5 I highly recommend you pick up this one!

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss So Fresh

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss So Fresh

So Fresh is a little more tricky to apply – it goes on rather streaky, but if you are looking for a crazy shade for Halloween it’s pretty scary. I wouldn’t recommend it for every day just because it’s tough to get it applied evenly. Plus it’s not the most flattering shade!

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss Skyfall

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Daring Lipgloss Skyfall

I have to say I liked Skyfall way more than I thought I would. It’s a costumey color, of course, but for a pastel it certainly applied far more evenly than I expected. This is a great Halloween shade.

Hard Candy also sent me one of their newest lipstick shades to test – and I am in love.

Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipstick, $5 is awesome. The packaging is adorable – love the crystal studded tube! The lipstick is moisturizing with lots of shine.
