Get great new summer colors from Vincent Longo

BeautyStat sent us some awesome Vincent Longo products to try and I can’t wait to tell you about them. I think it’s really exciting that VL has several gluten-free products available. Plus, there are great shades that are wearable yet still unique enough to expand your stash.

Vincent Longo Danae Lipstick

Vincent Longo Silk Velour Lipstick in Danae

The Silk Velour Lipstick ($23) is a long-wearing yet moisturizing lipstick. It has tons of pigment with tone-on-tone pearl, which reflects light and makes lips look lush. It has Vitamins A, C and E for optimal lip health. Pictured above is the shade Danae, a beautiful rose brown. It leans more rose than brown, bringing lips to life while also staying wonderfully neutral. This is a gluten-free product.

Vincent Longo Cupid's Breath Lip and Cheek Gel Stain

Vincent Longo Cupid’s Breath Lip and Cheek Gel Stain

The Lip/Cheek Gel Stain ($24) is a multi-tasking tinted gel that is both gluten and paraben-free. There is good reason why this is Vincent Longo’s number one selling product.  The stain is waterproof and won’t transfer to clothing…or to his lips when you kiss him! A great shade for summer is Cupid’s Breath, which is a true peach. It makes for a natural, glowy blush, and is a terrific lip stain shade. I put this on my lips, let it dry for 30 seconds, then cover with a little clear gloss for a pretty summer look. I have issues with gel blushes disappearing in about twenty minutes on me, but this stain sticks around all day. I just dot this on using the doe foot applicator and then blend with my fingertips.

Vincent Longo

Vincent Longo Creme Gel Eyeliner in Velvet Plum

The Crème Gel Eyeliner ($25) is really cool. It is definitely creamier than any other gel eyeliner I have tried. The creaminess makes it a dream to apply and it works fabulous as either a precise, thin line or completely smoked out. Once it sets, it stays in place and is waterproof. This stunning shade is Velvet Plum, a deep purple with blue pearl.  It’s a winner and it’s also gluten-free.

There is one more Vincent Longo product I think is a must-have for your stash:  the Dew Drop Radiant Blush ($30). Just check out how gorgeous this is.

Misty Blossom

Misty Blossom

Misty Blossom is a medium pink with tiny drops of varying champagne shades. It is a demi-matte powder with pearl, so once applied it gives a beautiful youthful glow. I love this lightly dusted all over my face and neck for a quick glow. I also layer it on my cheeks for a pretty pink flush.

Get a rosy glow with Lipstick Queen Look of Love

I love lip sets and I love Lipstick Queen lipsticks…so the Lipstick Queen Look of Love set ($48) had a definite advantage from the get go.

lookoflove_2

Poppy King is a master at coming up with color combinations, and I adore her thought process behind the creation of this set. Poppy says, ”I’ve always been intrigued by how your lips and cheeks naturally take on a rosy glow when you fall in love and so I put this set together so you can recreate that same look.

When Poppy sent this set to test, I was ready for some romance! Lips and cheeks that have that soft pink flush reminiscent of the blush of love…or a quick roll in the hay? Sign me up!

Inside the Look of Love

Inside the Look of Love

Here is what’s inside:

  • Oxymoron in Honest Politician gives cheeks a gentle ‘lit from within’ glow
  • Saint Pinky Nude’s sheer, Shea butter-enriched natural pink leaves lips soft and kissable
  • Butterfly Ball’s moisturizing texture glides on and imparts a magical radiance
Saint Pinky Nude

Saint Pinky Nude

Saint Pinky Nude is creamy and long-lasting for a 10% pigment, lip balmy type of product. I would say this is a YLBB shade, except my lips don’t even come close to being that beautiful of a shade naturally. It’s a fantastic pink-toned nude that doesn’t wash me out.  The perfect neutral lippie.

Oxymoron in Honest Politician

Oxymoron in Honest Politician

Oxymoron does double duty as a lip-cheek rouge. The shade in this set is Honest Politician, a matte pinkish brown. This lip/cheek compact is an oxymoron because while it is matte, it feels like a gloss. It definitely gives cheeks a great glow-from-within look and Honest Politician makes a great base shade for lips.

Smitten

Smitten

The final lippie in the Look of Love set is Butterfly Ball in Smitten. The Butterfly Ball formula is sheer and slick, like a conditioning moisturizer with a hint of color. Each shade also has a slight iridescence that help make teeth look whiter. Smitten is a soft rose shade with a slight turquoise shimmer.

Left to right, direct sunlight:  Oxymoron Honest Politician, Butterfly Ball Smitten, Saint Pinky Nude

Here is a great recipe for a perfect ‘in love’ look:  using fingers, tap Oxymoron Honest Politician onto the apples of cheeks for that ‘glow-from-within’ look. Then, use it as a base color for lips. Apply Saint Pinky Nude over, and follow with Smitten just in the middle of lips to make lips look super lush.

Lipstick Queen

I adore this set and think it’s a perfect way to get ‘love’ly lips. Head on over to www.lipstickqueen.com to take a look!  - Lisa

Makeup Wars loves Nude lippies

Makeup Wars and Top Ten Tuesdays have tempted you with pink lips, peach and coral lips, red lips but never true nudes. Now’s the time though and I was ready for this challenge. Most of my collection is nude lips. It got to the point that I had so many that I had to force myself not to buy new ones unless I was absolutely desperate for them. I was once a MACaholic and I’d buy every rendition of nude they had – and then I’d wear them twice and put them aside. I haven’t chosen any MAC to share with you since I don’t seem to grab for them anymore so instead you’ll see some of my favorites from other brands.

Makeup Wars Nude Lip favorites

Makeup Wars Nude Lip favorites

Nude lips are interesting because they all have different undertones plus what I consider nude might be too light for you depending on your skintone.

Makeup Wars lip crayons: Ardency Inn, Tarte (x2), Hourglass

Makeup Wars lip crayons: Ardency Inn, Tarte (x2), Hourglass

I’m a big fan of lip crayons but nude ones don’t overpopulate my collection. Ardency Inn Bowery, tarte exposed and Hourglass Nude No 3 are the ones I usually crave.

Hourglass Nude No3 and Ardency Inn Bowery

Hourglass Nude No3 and Ardency Inn Bowery

I bought Hourglass Femme Nude Stylo No3 because everyone was raving about these. Hourglass has an amazing reputation and these Nude lip crayons made beauty lovers so excited. No3 is described as “medium rose nude with hint of pink”. This has a pink undertone but it’s very light once on my lips, not medium to my eyes.

top Hourglass, bottom Ardency Inn

ARDENCY INN AMERICANA Natural Lip Color Pencil in Bowery was my next buy. These are $23 compared to the $30 of Hourglass so that made me happy. ARDENCY INN lip crayons seem to be truer nude shades too. Bowery is a light peach on my lips even though Sephora tells me that it’s a “light nude with pink undertones”. It just isn’t pink on me but it is pretty and I’m very comfortable in it. The consistency is smoother and a little more glossy than Hourglass.

tarte exposed - old vs new versions

tarte exposed – old vs new versions

Tarte Exposed was one of the colors saved when tarte revamped all their lip crayons. Tarte still sells LipSurgence but I didn’t find Exposed. The original fat crayon has a matte finish while the new tarte exposed is a glossier finish. The new pencils are called Power Pigments and Exposed is described as “nude with pink undertones”.

tarte exposed original version and new Power Pigment

tarte exposed original version and new Power Pigment

Power Pigment in exposed is glossier and slightly more pink while the original is definitely a matte on me and a little darker. Can’t go wrong with either but there is a slight difference between the two.

Makeup Wars Nude Lipsticks: Tom Ford, Lunasol, Armani, Gosh, Armani, Shiseido

Makeup Wars Nude Lipsticks: Tom Ford, Lunasol, Armani, Gosh, Armani, Shiseido

6 lipsticks made the cut for Makeup Wars: Tom Ford Pink Dune, Lunasol 25, Armani Shine 17, Gosh Darling, Armani 103, Shiseido RS701

GOSH Darling

GOSH Darling

GOSH Darling was a lipstick that everyone had to have. It was so hot on boards like Makeup Alley that you felt like you didn’t belong there if you didn’t own it.

Gosh Darling

Gosh Darling

I finally got it and was shocked at how much it looks like concealer. It’s so light and so beige that I couldn’t get it to show in a single swatch photo. I couldn’t resist putting this in even though it’s not a favorite, I’m including it for shock value.

Armani Shine 17, Lunasol 25, Armani 103

Armani Shine 17, Lunasol 25, Armani 103

These are the lipsticks that I reach for when I want moisturized lips with beautiful nude shades. Armani in particular makes outstanding nude colors for lips and I think they are among the finest lipsticks available. I get a little overwhelmed at an Armani counter because I want too much. All of these lipsticks were bought long ago.

from left: Armani 103, Lunasol 25, Armani Shine 17

from left: Armani 103, Lunasol 25, Armani Shine 17

Rouge d’Armani in 103 is my newest Armani and still available. 103 is the pink nude that I love to wear. It looks beige in the tube but once on it picks up pink.

Rouge d'Armani 103 (nordstrom.com)

Rouge d’Armani 103 (nordstrom.com)

Armani Shine 17 is an oldie but goodie. It’s more sheer than 103 but just as glossy.

LUNASOL 25 is also an older lipstick and I doubt it’s still for sale. Lunasol lipsticks were introduced to me by an old friend. I’d go nuts cosmetic shopping in Japan or Singapore! I have 2 LUNASOL lipsticks and they are so wonderfully creamy. They have a very similar consistency and look to the Armani ones I love.

Tom Ford Pink Dune, Shiseido RS701

Tom Ford Pink Dune, Shiseido RS701

Tom Ford Pink Dune barely has any color on my lips but that doesn’t stop me from loving it. It was a limited edition shade that I bought in the early winter but didn’t really wear at first. It felt too nude for winter but I can wear it now. Sometimes I’ll put it over another lipstick to ‘nude’ it up a bit.

Tom Ford Pink Dune, Shiseido RS701

Tom Ford Pink Dune, Shiseido RS701

I had to include Shiseido RS701 even though it’s not available. This was my first Shiseido lipstick and it reminds me of shopping with my blog partner Lisa. It’s one of my favorite lipstick buys. It’s a pink nude (RS stands for Rose) that has the perfect depth for me.

I’m sure these swatches all look alike but as a true beauty afficionado knows they are different as different can be.

ColorEssentials lipsticks by Susan Posnick

Which one of us isn’t in the mood for a new summer lipstick? There’s nothing that brightens up our face or mood like a beautiful lip. Susan Posnick Cosmetics provided two for the BIZ team so that we can help brighten up your day.

www.susanposnick.com

www.susanposnick.com

Susan Posnick Cosmetics are known for their unusual forms of delivery. With most cosmetics you aren’t going to find the same old thing. Lisa reviewed Mineral Colors for eyes and lips that come in a container with a puff. Marcia reviewed the eyeliner/eyeshadow dual side pencils, Eye Define, that are paired up beautifully. And together they reviewed the foundation and concealer, ColorFlo and ColorCorrect.

While there’s no unusual packaging for ColorEssential Lipsticks, there are 15 beautiful colors to choose from. These lipsticks have a formula that helps them adjust to your own skin chemistry, thereby making the color on your lips unique to you. That’s how these beauties become unique like other Susan Posnick Cosmetics do. Time to take a trip with us and learn about 2/15ths of the ultimate vacation destination named lippies.

Shades:

  • Shanghai-Pink like the perfect peony flower from a Chinese garden, Shanghai reflects the bright, fresh new color of the city, blossoming in a brand new way.
  • Tokyo- A red for the woman who keeps her thoughts and emotions close to her heart, but can’t help but be noticed.
  • Boca- Always perfect with a tan and retro style, this pale, light coral shade will keep you shimmering into the night.
  • Paris- The classic red; Paris is reminiscent to true Parisian 1940′s glamour and fashion but with a new retro twist.
  • LA- LA takes you back to the ‘flower power’ age of the 60′s and the Hollywood hippie- a pale, flirty pink with an endless silver and gold shimmer.
  • Miami- Reflecting the vibrant lifestyle of Miami, this bright coral sizzles.
  • NYC- A subtle neutral berry honoring a city of many nationalities and cultures. Perfectly and simply chic, for the woman who is always pulled together but never “made up”
  • Dallas- Like its reserved yet sophisticated namesake, a subtle pink shade that doesn’t scream color but adds instant allure.
  • Milan- A rich red, mirroring the classic sophistication of Italy’s fashion capital.
  • Dubai- Glamorous and exotic, this blushed nude shade complements a host of skin colors and tones.
  • South Beach- Coral -A tribute to the ‘heat’, sun and diversity of this tropical paradise.
  • Marrakesh- A lush bronze-tinged neutral, reminiscent of the city’s twilight sky.
  • Santa Fe- Neutral- Rich and coppery with golden undertones, like the sun kissing the rocks at day’s end.
  • London- The quintessential bronzed berry, wonderfully classic and very wearable.
  • Rio- A rich, vibrant berry shade inspired by the exuberance of carnival”

MARCIA’S LIPSTICK:

Susan Posnick LA lipstick

Susan Posnick LA lipstick

Welcome to LA, my choice of summer lipsticks. Not only is this my favorite type of shade but it’s perfect for this warmer weather. I’m not a dark lipstick person in general but in summer they just feel off base. LA is the type of lipstick you could wear anywhere all summer long and feel comfortable in.

LA lipstick by Susan Posnick

When you click on a rectangular swatch on the site you’ll find a pretty good representation of the lipstick. I may be a hippie in my mind but in reality I’m a middle age woman who just wants to look pretty in my pretty pinky peach lipstick.

LA ColorEssentials lipstick

LA ColorEssentials lipstick

LA doesn’t appear super light on my lips or hand even. My chemistry and LA create a light but visible lipstick. The description says it has gold and silver shimmer but you won’t see or feel that on your lips. It does have a shiny almost metallic look to it. I like that because it makes my lips appear slightly larger, well moisturized and glistening.

LISA’S LIPSTICK:

This summer, I am going to Shanghai for my lipstick. Susan Posnick has the perfect lipstick packaging for travel since the sleek silver case has a magnetic closure that keeps the cap on, so there is no risk of a lipstick accident in your bag.

Shanghai is a pretty peony pink with just the right amount of sophistication so it doesn’t read too young.

Shanghai swatch

Besides being a perfect summer shade, the lipstick is just a joy to wear. It has fabulous pigment but it glides on and feels more like a lip balm. Even though it is a moisturizing lipstick I never have any issues with feathering or bleeding. As Marcia mentioned, the Coloressential Lipsticks react with body chemistry and adjust to a shade that works for you…and Shanghai definitely works for me!

my Susan Posnick FOD

If you are ready for lipsticks loaded with minerals, vitamins and pomegranate that help your lips look and feel healthy then ColorEssentials are calling your name. If you are ready for a lipstick that is made with olive oil to add moisture and a rich texture and with the anti-oxidant Paracress that will help with those pesky fine lines, then Susan Posnick Cosmetics is the place to go. We’re ready for more trips to ColorEssential land, are you?

Vapour Organic Beauty – eco beauty done right

Vapour Organic Beauty

Vapour Organic Beauty

Vapour Organic Beauty creates products that they say are good enough to eat. According to the USDA “Vapour is the only color cosmetic manufactured to the USDA’s Organic Food Standard.” vapour beauty usdaThat’s saying something but there’s a lot more to say about this company that is made entirely from certified organic plants, vitamins and minerals. They are cruelty free, sustainable and ethical. And they make great products if the 5 lovelies they sent, seen above, are any indication of what they can do.

I’ve reviewed a few other Vapour Beauty products and liked using them but the newest ones I have are even better than before. I’ve been wearing them a lot and getting a lot of pleasure from doing so.

Aura Multi-Use Blush sticks in Charisma and Intrique

Aura Multi-Use Blush sticks in Charisma and Intrique

My absolute favorites are the AURA MULTI-USE BLUSH STICKS. That’s no surprise to anyone who knows me. I’d much rather use a cream blush product than a powder one. I find creams to be much more natural looking and easier for me to control. With a powder blush I never quite know how much pressure to put on a brush and I can end up with too much. But with these AURA Multi-Use Blush Sticks I quickly learned how much to use and I find them exceptionally easy to apply and blend.

Aura Multi-Use

Aura Multi-Use

The two that I have – Charisma and Intrique – are unfortunately not available at the current time but they’ll give you an idea of what these are all about. The colors that are available are stunning (see beauty.com for great swatches). These aren’t just blush sticks, they are multiple use so you can use them safely on lips and eyes as well.

There is no fragrance to these, they are silky smooth and glide on beautifully, and they last well throughout the day.

Vapour swatches: Solar Translucent Bronzer, Charisma & Intrique Aura blush sticks

Vapour swatches: Solar Translucent Bronzer, Charisma & Intrique Aura blush sticks

SOLAR TRANSLUCENT BRONZER comes in 3 shades; from lightest to darkest they are Mirage (shown), Simmer and Spicy. I personally love the translucent quality of this bronzer since I am not a bronzing queen like my dear blog partner Lisa. I like a touch of color and I’m able to achieve that with Solar Translucent Bronzer stick in Mirage. Like the Aura sticks this is a cream product and I feel that I can control the amount I use as well as the placement better than I can with a powder product. Plus if I goof, it’s easier to blend down and fix.

Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer in Mirage

Vapour Organic Beauty Solar Translucent Bronzer in Mirage

Solar is infused with sun-specific super antioxidants Pomegranate, Green Tea and Acai Berry, and nourishes with a soothing organic Calendula Flower and vitamin-rich organic Shea Butter. This isn’t orange on me even though my lousy photography makes it look that way. Instead it’s a light tan that works well on my paleness. It’s described as a “pale gold that brings a kiss of the sun to pale skin”.

SIREN is the name for Vapour’s lipsticks and some of these shades really fit that description. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package to find this lipstick:

Vapour Beauty Siren lipstick in Dare

Vapour Beauty Siren lipstick in Dare

DARE is a rich plummy brown that looks almost black in the tube. I’m the girl that wears light lips. So how do I review a product that is this dark and vampy? EASY PEASY LADIES!! I applied it and then applied the gorgeous POSSESS lipstick over it and the angels sang. (Well maybe they hummed a little.)

Vapour lipsticks in Dare and Possess

Vapour lipsticks in Dare and Possess

POSSESS is a color that I absolutely love. It’s called a “sexy adult pink” and on my lips it turns a perfect soft mauve. It’s the type of color I grab when I want to look my best but still natural. When it’s worn over Dare it becomes a deeper version of itself. SIREN LIPSTICKS are unscented beauties. While Dare will only get used occasionally, Possess has a permanent place in my makeup bag. They have a creamy jojoba, pomegranate and camellia oil base so they don’t feel dry.

My comeaway impression of VAPOUR ORGANIC BEAUTY is that this is a very special brand of organic makeup. They are so sure of their products that they even sell samples of many of them. They are confident that once you try the textures and colors that you’ll come back. I’m confident of that too. Have you tried Vapour lately? — Marcia

Makeup Wars loves peach and coral lip colors

Welcome to a new Makeup Wars celebrating peach and coral lip shades. We know that spring is the best time to bring out our prettiest lip colors. I’m not a big coral lip lover but some corals are light enough for me. What I do love though are peach shades and peachy pink shades. My list today contains some of those favorites plus 2 wishlist items.
1. MAKE COSMETICS Flesh lipgloss and Deep Flesh lipstick are the first two shades I pulled when I was deciding on this list. Deep Flesh lipstick is on the dark side for me but with Flesh lipgloss on top it’s the epitome of springness.*
2. MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N37 is described as an iridescent icy coral. I love the sheerness of this shade and that it has a touch of pink to the coral. It glistens!
3. TARTE LIPSURGENCE LIP TINTS are favorites in all of the shades. I love tarte lip crayons and especially Tipsy and Fearless. Tipsy (3rd swatch) is a beautiful coral that’s not too dark while Fearless (4th swatch) is a peachy pink coral.*
4. BEAUTE’ COSMETICS LUMINOUS VOLUME GLOSS IN CHIMERA has long been one of my favorite glosses. I bought most of the Beaute’ glosses when they first became available and they are ones I reach for often. Chimera is an iridescent salmon pink.
5. ARDENCY INN NATURAL LIP PENCIL IN BOWERY is described as a light nude with pink undertones but it’s actually a peach both on my hand and lips. These pencils from Ardency Inn are similar to the nudes of Hourglass but a little smoother and less expensive.
6. BEAUTE COSMETICS LUMINOUS VOLUME GLOSS IN ELITIST is another of my favorites from Beaute. Elitist is described as a sophisticated tawny shade. I wear it when I’ve chosen warm shades and want a beautiful peach shade.
7. NARS TASMANIA LIPGLOSS is a wishlist item. Of all the new Nars shades I’ve seen Tasmania’s pink cantaloupe shade is the one I’m most drawn to and will pick up once it’s at Sephora.
8. BITE BEAUTY HIGH PIGMENT PENCIL IN BOUQUET is another wishlist item. Since it’s a matte shade (and not the one shown in my beauty set unfortunately) I want to test it first to make sure I like the look. I know I like the color!
Do you have a favorite peach or coral lipstick, one that even thin lip ladies might like? — Marcia
*some items are PR samples

Let’s see what the other Makeup Wars ladies love:

Well, Hello Sailor! Lipstick Queen’s blue lipstick is naughty cool

 

hellosailor-350_cr1_1

Now it’s even easier to get attention with the greeting, “Hello Sailor!”

Poppy King takes the ‘naughty nautical’ concept to a new level with her Hello Sailor Lipstick ($25).  She says, ”We’ve seen the trend for blackberry lips but I have a whole new take on this – a super sheer, silky-feeling navy that gives lips a deep berry tint. Turn nautical into ‘naughty cool’ with this new lip phenomenon!”

Hello Sailor - front of the package

Hello Sailor – front of the package

...and the super cool back of the package

…and the super cool back of the package

There’s no question, I get a LOT of attention – and not just from the hubby – when I apply my Hello Sailor Lipstick ($25) from Lipstick Queen. That blue color is an eye grabber for sure! The novelty lives up to the hype with captivating color and smooth texture. In fact, a friend literally tried to steal my tube right out of my hands when she saw the gorgeous berry tint that this fascinating blue lipstick morphs into when applied.

Hello Sailor Lipstick

Hello Sailor Lipstick

Hello Sailor swatch

Hello Sailor is more of a lip balm than a lipstick. It goes on slick and moisturizing, and the blackberry color continues to deepen as it reacts with your body chemistry. The Vitamin E keeps lips moisturized and the formula has a fabulous slip that lasts. Another plus?  The blue tones in the lipstick help make teeth look whiter.

Keep in mind, I have barely pigmented lips, so what is pictured above is actually a big change from my normal lip color. I had multiple friends try this on and each one got a different color – but the lipstick was extremely flattering on each person.  Fascinating!

You’ve got to try this just for the reaction from people when they see you putting on a blue lipstick. It’s really entertaining! And I have no doubt that this ‘naughty cool’ lipstick will become a repurchase thanks to the bewitching shade and the excellent texture.  - Lisa
