IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Lipstick

New lippie alert - It Cosmetics  recently launched Pillow Lips lipsticks. 

These are what I am calling old school lipstick. They've got full  coverage and  rich saturation in one swipe.  Each shade is available in Matte and Cream formula. I am not a matte fan for the most part, so I went with all Cream colors. 

Vision, marvelous, wish list ,fanciful, humble

The bullet here is firm but not hard as the formula is lightly moisturizing and creamy with a not quite satin , more semi matte finish with one,   Marvelous, being a pearl.  It does drag a bit on application and you think it'll be patchy but it's not. They blend and smoothes out easily and fast with a smush of your lips.

With lanolin ,sesame seed, jojoba and peppermint oils and shea butter they feel very comfy on and have is a light scent but no taste of peppermint. I've been wearing one the past couple days and not only do I love the full quick color but they last really well. I went from 7:30 to 10:30AM including drinking and eating a snack bar with very little wear. By lunchtime I still had a stain left.  

It  has done a fabulous job with the cases here too. Weighty and ceramic like with an embossed quilted pattern , and a solid silver tube with the brand name etched across the bottom.  A little modern and very chic .

Chanel Ombre Premiere Laque Liquid Eyeshadows

Behold the new Chanel Ombre Premiere Laque eyeshadows.  I LOVE these . Love them. Yes I am that excited by new makeup. 

 I have major eye makeup melt issues and oily eyelids as I've mentioned a time or 10 and shadows that stick/last on me are thin on the ground. These metallic liquid shadows have serious grip. You only need a little bit and  blend fast as they set quickly and once on stay put. At 9pm there's still more than half the shadow left from an 8am application. For me that's amazing. 

And they look so good on. A metallic finish but not heavy or glittery. More a muted metal , so at least to me, they're very wearable anytime.   The shades are gorg with Vastness  a rich bronzed brown. Rising Sun a bright copper, Rayon is gold and Quartz Rose is a burnished rose/ mauve. 

Chanel Ombre Premiere Laque Eyeshadows come in 5 shades are $ 36 at Chanel
