What if we tell you that you can have lips that last up to 18 hours even if you kiss, eat, drink or sweat? What if we tell you that you can have lips that don’t smudge?

MARCIA IS LOVING BRAVO AND LUV IT

LipSense is a company that’s been around for a long time but they’ve changed for the better. I tried their products many many moons ago and didn’t care for them. Maybe it’s that I wasn’t used to long wear lipstick, maybe it was that I didn’t quite “get” liquid lipstick, or maybe it was that the colors were too dark for me. Whichever maybe it turned out to be, it’s all changed for me now. With 70 shades to choose from it was really hard to narrow it down. When I told Lauren that I liked a light natural lip she sent both Bravo and Luv It.

LipSense talks a lot about layering colors and having two shades is perfect for layering. BRAVO is a warm matte peachy nude that shows up quite nude on my pale lips. I’ve used it two ways: as a base for Luv It and over Luv It other times. I can see this becoming the perfect lipstick for my future purchases if they are darker than I normally wear.

LUV IT is a gorgeous pinky peach LipSense and it’s named appropriately for my taste. It’s a perfect shade for me since I never want my lips to be what you see first yet they are finished in a flattering color.

What you want to buy two of is their Gloss because you’ll want to apply this throughout the day. I have Moisturizing Gloss and it lives up to its name.

I don’t really like the feel of gloss so I don’t wear it often but this isn’t sticky and my hair isn’t attracted to it. It’s miraculous in that way. It really helps to keep your color fresh looking and your lips looking lively.

Then there’s OOPS to help remove your lips at the end of the day and to help if you make an OOPS when applying.

The only problem I’ve found with Bombshell Cosmetics is that these colors sell out quickly. I’m dying to buy Pink Champagne and another gloss (I want one in the house and one in my purse) so I’ve emailed Lauren (laurenwilliamson@gmail.com) to find out when Pink Champagne will be available. I can’t wait to hear back from her.bombshell cosmetics business card

 

LISA LOVES FLEUR de LISA

Happily, Bombshell Cosmetics sent me the shade Fleur de Lisa…how appropriate!  I love the color, a shimmery medium pink. It’s definitely a shade I wear often, so the possibility of wearing this all day long without having to reapply sounded great to me.  Here is what I found:

  1.  Make sure your lips are truly dry.  One time I used this about fifteen minutes after putting on some lip cream, and it just didn’t wear well.  Clean and dry means clean and dry!
  2. With my shade, one coat was very light.  Two coats mean a pretty but still light pink.  Three coats was perfect for enough pigmentation, shimmer, and wear.
  3. Be sure to shake that bottle!!!  If it’s not well shaken, it doesn’t have as much pigmentation.Bombshell Cosmetics Lipsense
  4. Resist the urge to press your lips together in between applications.  It doesn’t take long to dry, and I get much better results when I am good about it.
  5. The hydrating lip gloss is fantastic.  It gives amazing slip without being sticky.  Love it…I even use it when I don’t wear the pink shade!Bombshell Cosmetics Lipsense
  6. With properly prepped lips, I got a good 8+hours of excellent wear time.  I have to say, this is one of the best long-wearing lip products I have ever used.  And if I get a little overzealous in my application, the Oops! Remover cleans up those edges quickly and easily.

    Now that you’ve seen 3 of the 70 shades, it’s time to visit Bombshell Cosmetics to find out more and when you can get a hold of these lovelies!  We think that Lipsense really makes sense – beautiful colors and excellent wear that doesn’t dry out lips.  What more could you ask for??  – Marcia and Lisa

Wear red lips for the Lunar New Year

Chinese new year rooster

2017 is the year of the Rooster. It’s just one of the 12 animals that represent the Lunar New Year. There are 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac: the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the goat, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and the pig. Each animal has attributes that are said to be part of their year especially for newborns.

Roosters are considered to be in charge of time, i.e. crowing to greet the day, as well as being hard working and diligent. If you were born in the year of the Rooster your lucky numbers are 5,7. and 8 but avoid 1, 3, and 9. Your lucky flowers are Gladiolas, Cockscomb and Impatiens. Your colors are golden, brown, brownish yellow, and yellow but it’s best to stay away from white and green.

The holiday is celebrated with fireworks in Asian countries and in cities with large Chinese populations. Red is the lucky color for the Lunar New Year which began on January 27th in the evening and is fully celebrated on January 28th, 2017. Celebrants wear red, decorate with red, and receive red paper envelopes with money to start the year with prosperity. Red is believed to ward off bad luck and misfortune. For people born in a year of the Rooster, wearing red underwear is a must for 2017.

SPELA Paint & Play is here to save the day

SPELA Paint & Play

SPELA Paint & Play

Is there anything better than a new lipstick? Makeup lovers throughout the world choose a lipstick as their most wanted product time and again. This year we’ve seen Liquid Lipsticks take over from the traditional lipstick and of those liquid lipsticks it’s the matte lip that rules. Whether you are a fan of matte lipsticks or not, you can’t avoid them so you might as well join them. One such brand is a new one, SPELA COSMETICS.                          sample

SPELA Cosmetics Girl's Girl set

SPELA Cosmetics Girl’s Girl set

SPELA Cosmetics is a small brand so far. They’ve created 8 Paint & Play Liquid Lipsticks that sell for $18 each or you can purchase one of 4 duos for $30. The philosophy of SPELA is that they wanted to create vegan, cruelty-free lipsticks that go beyond the certification of US standards and use E.U. Compliance as their guideline. In Europe there are 1300 banned ingredients for cosmetics while the US only has 11. We can be assured by SPELA that their lipsticks are E.U. Compliant while being made in the US.

SPELA Spin and Flirt Liquid Lipsticks

SPELA Spin and Flirt Liquid Lipsticks

I was sent the GIRL’S GIRL set that has the pinks of their line: Spin and Flirt. There are 3 more sets, Naughty but Nice (red and nude), Social Butterfly (classic red and plum), and Yogi (neutrals in a dark clay like shade and a pale gray-lavender.). These are all sold as singles too so you can find your own favorites.

SPELA holiday duos

What I like best about these SPELA lipsticks is that they are totally weightless on my lips. There is no drying out or cracking on my lips. Even when I’ve rushed and didn’t prep my lips they were always comfortable and felt like I didn’t have anything on my lips.

In the GIRL’S GIRL set are two pinks that are very different from each other. SPIN is a cool bright but dark pink. These liquid lipsticks are one coat wonders though I’ve filled in with a second coat if necessary. SPIN turns slightly fuchsia on me so to wear it I have to use a light coat. I’ll go over it with a clean lipbrush to make sure it’s even. It lasts at least 5 hours if I don’t eat anything that’s oily. It leaves behind a nice stain when it wears away.

Closer to the colors I wear on a daily basis is FLIRT which is a pale rose shade. At first when applied it looked very nude on me but once it started to dry I saw the warm pinkness it holds.

Flirt will last on me a little less time than Spin does. I made chili for dinner recently and it didn’t last through that. When it fades though it is an even fade that doesn’t make my lips look bad. It’s easy to reapply after without a problem.

If you are ready to go beyond the typical brands I believe that SPELA Cosmetics Paint & Play Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a wonderful choice. They are paraben and sulfate-free, vegan and cruelty-free. They are enriched with Vitamin C and E which not only have antioxidant protection but prevent the dry lips you associate with a matte lipsticks. I hope you’ll take a chance so you can find some lipsticks that bring in the play in your day.  —  Marcia

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.

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.

And there are 4 finishes so there’s something to fit your lip preferences.

My absolute favorite products from this line are the GEN NUDE Radiant lipsticks. There are twenty shades available. I have three that I was sent and I’m in love with them all. They are creamy beyond belief, moisturizing, and have just enough shine. ($20)

Every time I put one on I say it’s my favorite but I know now that they are all favorites. Every one of my 3 lipsticks looks great and feels even better.

bareMineral GEN NUDE Bubbles

BUBBLES is a light peachy pink nude. At first I thought it was pink but then the peach came through more. If I want to darken this or any of these products the GEN NUDE Under Over Lip Liners are perfect. I have this in On Point and it’s a winner.

HONEYBUN is called a Toasted Nude. To me this is the perfect rendition of a nude lipstick. It’s got a soft brown tone but it’s softened with a touch of mauve.

bareMinerals Honeybun Gen Nude lipstick

TUTU is the one I wear the most. The shade is described as a delicate mauve. I’m not a dark lipstick person and Tutu gives me color but doesn’t scream at anyone. All of these lipsticks contain Mango, cocoa and shea butters to make them as moisturizing as they are.

There are two formulas that at first appear to be gloss: GEN NUDE BUTTERCREAM LIPGLOSS and MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOR.

bare Minerals GEN NUDE BUTTERCREAM LIPGLOSS and MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOR.

bare Minerals GEN NUDE BUTTERCREAM LIPGLOSS and MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLOR

bareMinerals GenNude Buttercream Lipgloss are aptly named. These are less like the lip gloss you have in your collection and more like the lip butters you have. In essence they are a combination of both worlds. Available in 15 colors the shades I have are Fancy, Forbidden, and Snarky (sounds like a fun music trio). These are considered lip plumping though I have never felt a sting or tingle from them.

bareMinerals Buttercream Lipgloss in Fancy, Forbidden and Snarky

bareMinerals Buttercream Lipgloss in Fancy, Forbidden and Snarky

Fancy is the thinnest of the three I have. It’s a true light pink with golden pearl. The wand on this is different than the ones you’ll find on the matte lip colors. Forbidden is a light pink nude (I love this!!) while Snarky is rose pink with gold pearl.

bareMinerals Fancy Buttercream Lipgloss

bareMinerals Fancy Buttercream Lipgloss

These all have a light vanilla scent to them and have great active ingredients (Shea, avocado, murumuru and cupuacu butters) plus Volulip, a natural peptide that increases lip volume and supports lip hydration by locking in moisture, with no tingling sensation.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipglosses in Fancy, Forbidden, and Snarky

bareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipglosses in Fancy, Forbidden, and Snarky

Last but not least are the trendy GEN NUDE MATTE LIQUID LIPCOLORS. Is there anything more popular than this texture? Everyone loves a great matte liquid lipstick and these from bareMinerals are marvelous matte without being drying. The wand/paddle applies them perfectly. It’s flat and gets my whole lip at the same time. Wait about 10 minutes before eating or drinking to really let these set.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Shag

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Shag

Frenemy is a dark cool pink, Swag is called a blushing mauve, and Weekend is a honeyed peach pink. If these 3 shades aren’t your favorite there are 17 more. These look different on my lips once they’ve dried down than when they are still moist.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Swag, Weekend,, and Frenemy

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Swag, Weekend, and Frenemy

bareMinerals wanted these to be comfortable so they infused primer into the formula. The primer helps with color transfer as well as helping to prevent feathering. They also contain plant based waxes to keep your lips feel moisturized.

Right now at ULTA bareMinerals has a GWP of a FREE 5-pc Gorgeous All The Way Gift with any $40 bareMinerals purchase (offer valid 9/25/16-10/22/16 or while supplies last). These are also available at Sephora and with their annual discount you might want to put your favorites on your wishlist. Since the Radiant Lipsticks are my favorite, I’m checking out more shades of these.

Get a personal recommendation from Kismet Cosmetics on Instagram! #MyKismetColor

Kismet Liquid LipsticksOk, I’ll admit it – I can be a little star struck when I meet or talk to the artists who create their own cosmetics line. I will always remember the time Scott Barnes rubbed some of his gleaming body lotion on my arms while he chatted about JLo. I will never, ever forget sitting with Bobbi Brown while she made up a list of the products from her line that she thought would be perfect for me as she told me about her recent MTV appearance. And how could I forget interviewing Dan Read and finding out he was a drummer in an ’80’s big hair band and his dad was an Elvis impersonator??

Every time I interact with one of these creative geniuses I feel as though I have been touched by a little magic. That’s how I felt when I posted an Instagram pic asking for a personal recommendation from Caitlin Picou, the super talented artist and creator of the Kismet Cosmetics line. Post a pic with the #MyKismetColor, tagging @KismetCosmetics, and guess what? She will give you a recommendation just for you!

Kismet

I asked Caitlin what her inspiration was for creating her Instagram program. She said, “I developed this hashtag campaign because I noticed throughout my launches and pop ups, that women were asking for my professional opinion on which colors would look best. Whether it was because they never wear lipstick and are branching out, or they haven’t found their perfect color yet. As a licensed makeup artist, I was taught how to view skin tones and coloring to find the perfect complimentary shades whether it is lipstick or eye shadow. I also take into account personality. You can tell from photos when a woman is a little more bold with her lip color, so I suggest a bolder shade. I just want to make it easier for women to step up their beauty routine. There are so many products and colors out there, we all need help cutting out the clutter. And that is what my brand, Kismet, is doing. Small color choices, but all top trends. I am not here to confuse, I am here to help!”

I can always, always use a little help (ha!) so here is the picture I posted on Instagram:

Kismet Cosmetics pic

 

  • beautyinfozoneDid you know that by posting a photo of yourself and tagging#MyKismetColor, Caitlin Picou herself will respond with a personalized Kismet lipstick shade? So Caitlyn, which shade would work best for my not-so-full lips??

  • kismetcosmetics@beautyinfozonegreat photo! I could totally see you rocking our liquid lipstick Come Play!! You could wear a lot but I would love to see you in that one!

I asked Caitlin for a few more specifics, and she said, “The reason I picked Come Play for you was because I took into account your hair, eye and skin color. You have brown eyes and hair, which means you can get away with a lot of colors. But purple will enhance the beauty of the brown. Come Play has a purple tendency so together they will play off each other perfectly. It is kinda like an artist, hence ‘makeup artist’, I take a look at the pallet and go with what appeals to the eye the most.”

I got my hot little hands on Come Play and guess what? I LOVE it. I never thought how purple tones can enhance my coloring, but Caitlin was spot on.

3 pretty pink lips from Mally Beauty

I am definitely into pink lips these days and Mally Beauty has some great options. I’ve bought several kits from Mally Beauty on QVC over the years and am a big fan of the line. When Mally Beauty sent the BIZ some products to test I went right for the pinks and here are three of my favorites.

1.  The Ultimate Performance Endless Color Liquid Lipstick in Petal Pink ($27.50) is a great hybrid lipstick/lip gloss/lip balm. It leaves my lips soft and moist, and the color lasts and lasts. It goes on slick and glossy, and after about an hour the shine lessens and lips are left with a beautiful stain. What I really like is that even when the color fades, it does so evenly, so I’m not left with the dreaded ‘ring around the lips’ look. I adore the Petal Pink shade, which is a grown up, deep pink with tons of shine.

2.  High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Pouty Pink ($20)  I love the feel of this lip gloss. It is very emollient without any stickiness whatsoever. This doesn’t have the lasting power of the Ultimate Performance Liquid Lipstick, but it still lasts longer than the usual lip gloss. It has a twist up tube with a brush applicator, and the colors are complex. These pinks make lips look full and lush.

Pouty Pink is a gorgeous warm pink with golden shimmer. This is pretty on its own and wonderful layered over  lip liner or matte lipstick. Since it’s warm, I pair it with a cool-toned pink lipstick for even more depth.

3.  Tender Rose High Shine Liquid Lipstick is a shimmering pink with brown undertones. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. I can’t always wear browns, but this one has easily become a favorite. I think of this as my ‘transition’ shade from summer into fall.

There are so many more shades available on QVC and at Mally’s website, be sure to check them out – I know you will find a perfect pop of pink for you!  – Lisa
