Bobbi Brown Luxe Lipstick – Uber Nude*

fullsizeoutput_a48

When Bobbi Brown’s brand new Wine & Chocolate collection popped through the letterbox, it’s fair to say that I got a little giddy. It’s the first of the Christmas collections to arrive, and I have to say, it’s a good one!

The collection has three new shades of the Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors – Tawny, a rich brown; Your Majesty, a saturate wine shade, and Uber Nude, a warm natural which is the stuff of dreams.

Uber Nude is the first of the brand’s Luxe Lip Colors that I’ve tried, and I have to say, I’ve fallen more than a little in love with them! They’re basically everything you hope for when you crack into a new lippy – beautiful colour, great colour payoff, good wear time and they even feel balmy on the lips!

Uber Nude is basically the culmination every neutral-lip wish you’ve made ever. It’s a warm, pinky shade which is incredibly easy to wear. During the day it’s the perfect shade for an effortlessly chic makeup look. Paired with a natural, smudgy brown eyeshadow, it’s wonderfully subtle, and adds a hint of polish to a deceivingly simple look. Then, at night, it’s the ideal counterpoint for a more dramatic eye. Dark, smoky shadow looks so chic when paired with Uber Nude, and I have to say, I couldn’t be more in love!

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color is priced at £25

Lancome Juicy Shaker – Show Me the Honey*

lancome-juicy-shaker-show-me-the-honey-2

Ok, so it’s not exactly news that I’m a big fan of Lancome’s Juicy Shaker lip glosses. When they were released earlier this year, I kind of binged on them – collecting a handful of colours in a few weeks, and honestly, they’re still one of my most used products.

Show Me the Honey is probably the most neutral of my collection (which even contains a blue one) and it’s the perfect shade for everyday use. It’s a sheer, warm toned peach which makes lips look pretty and juicy – and really, what more can you ask for?

lancome-juicy-shaker-show-me-the-honey-1

Like all Juicy Shakers, Show Me the Honey, has a bi-phase formula which you shake prior to using. Then, using the foam applicator, you just dab the gloss onto lips. It has a moisturizing and super lightweight formula, so it’s perfect if you’re not a fan of a sticky gloss. Instead this just smoothes on, leaving lips feeling hydrated and looking gorgeous!

Lancome’s Juicy Shaker in Show Me the Honey is priced at £18.00 and is available here (UK) and is priced at $21 and is available here (US)

Sensai Silky Design Rouge – Hiro*

When it comes to makeup, I’m something of a neutrals fan. I love a smokey brown eye, a beige nail or a pinky nude lip, but sometimes you just need a pop of colour. Enter Sensai’s Silky Design Rouge, a slick lip crayon which feels like silk to apply and has the most wonderful colour payoff you can imagine!

Available in a selection of six, super saturated shades which run the gamut from fuchsia to rich wine, Sensai’s Silky Design Rouge is perfect if you’re after a pop of colour. Since the crayons are narrow enough to use as both a liner and a lipstick, so if you’re in the process of choosing must-haves for your summer makeup bag, this one is a no brainer!

Hero is a stunning pink toned red which looks wonderful paired with tan skin and minimal eye makeup. It applied like an absolute dream, and I love how light yet moisturising it feels to wear. The Silky Design Rouge has a subtle sheen which looks so pretty and summer appropriate! In case you can’t tell already – I love it!

Sensai’s Silky Design Rouge in Hiro is priced at £28 and is available here.

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick – So Mod*

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick

Rodin is one of those brands that just feels like pure luxury from start to finish. The products come tucked in sturdy white boxes, and the products themselves are just dreamy. I’ve loved pretty much everything I’ve tried from the brand, so when I heard that they were branching out from skincare, and adding a lipstick to the mix, you can imagine how excited I got!

Rodin Luxury Lipstick - So Mod 1

Much like everything from the brand, and Linda Rodin herself, the new Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick are the epitome of understated elegance. Packaged in super cute, minimalist acetate packaging, there are five shades to choose from, ranging from a fiery tomato red (the aptly named Tough Tomato) to my choice, the only neutral (So Mod).

Rodin Lipstick - So Mod

When it comes to neutral lipsticks, I’m a bit of a nightmare, they can’t be too pink, too peach or too brown, and usually they have a subtle touch of mauve. Anything else just looks oddly artificial on me, and happily, I’ve been slicking Rodin’s So Mod with abandon.

Rodin Luxury Lipstick - So Mod 3

The colour of the lipstick falls perfectly in my neutral territory. It’s definitely a pinky-peach, but there’s just enough of an undertone to keep it looking natural. I’ve been wearing mine with a slick of bronzer and a shimmery neutral eye. It feels perfect for summer, although the formula is so comfortable to wear, I know I’ll be picking it up throughout the winter too!

Rodin Luxury Lipstick - So Mod 4

As much as I adore the colour, I might be even more in love with the formula. As you might expect from a luxury skincare line, it’s seriously well thought out, and the result is a lipstick that’s incredibly comfortable to wear, as well as surprisingly long-lasting.

Rodin Luxury Lipstick - So Mod Swatch

On the lips, Rodin’s Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick feels incredibly lightweight and balmy. Like the iconic face oil, the lipsticks contain jasmine & neroli oils as well as rose water and lavender flower wax, vitamins c and e, apricot, argan and meadow flower oils. The result is a lipstick which feels nourishing, and leaves lips with a subtle sheen.

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Lipstick in So Mod is priced at £28.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Maybelline Baby Lips Glosses*

Maybelline Baby Lips Glosses

I’m not sure about you, but by the time it gets around to being a Friday, I’m always in the mood to treat myself. I usually find myself wandering around SpaceNK or Harvey Nichols, desperate to find something that’s not too expensive but is still a nice little find. Now though, Boots has been my port of call, as I have fallen completely in love with Maybelline’s new Baby Lips lip glosses – the proof? I may have bought myself three new colours since these two popped through the door!

Maybelline Baby Lips Gloss - A Wink of pink gloss

The packaging for glosses is pretty standard – the white cap is emblazoned with the Maybelline Baby Lips logo, and the gloss itself is in a clear tube which means selecting a colour from my makeup bag couldn’t be easier. Wink of Pink is a stunning, warm toned pink gloss which is shot through with golden shimmer. On the lips, the gloss feels surprising rich and balmy (these aren’t in any way sticky) and they give a sheer hint of shimmer with a flattering sheen of gloss. As you might imagine, since the glosses are part of the Baby Lips collection, they promise to moisturize, which, now we’re in the middle of summer, is much needed!

Maybelline Baby Lips Gloss 1

The formula of the gloss really feels surprisingly luxe. Everything from the doe foot applicator to the fruity scent feels well thought out, and I’ve been reaching for them more regularly than my normal Chanel or Dior choices. The wear-time might not be hours long, but the glosses are so cute and affordable, I don’t really mind topping them up!

Maybelline Baby Lips Gloss - Fab & Fuchsia

Possibly my most reached-for shade this week has been Fab and Fuchsia. In the tube it looks like a neon-Barbie dream of a gloss, but it’s far more subtle on the lips. It just gives a super sheer wash of shine with a subtle pink tint. Again, it has the brand’s signature fruity sweet scent, but I kind of love it, and the non-sticky formula is just so comfortable to wear, I’ve actually picked myself up a backup!

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Glosses are priced at £4.99 each and are available here.
