Korres is one brand that I so want to love and be a favorite, but that they’re not easily accessible so that makes it impossible. I was on a trip to US at the time they released the Goddess Beauty, which contains several of their makeup. I knew I could get it. I could try several Korres products in one purchase. But I went to a couple of Sephora stores (I remember my mom complaining) and didn’t find it. Then I went to a branch near the hotel I was staying at and found a few. I thought hard whether or not I should get it. I browsed the store twice, but I knew it had taken my heart. LOLOL!
Late New Year’s greetings to you lovelies! 😀 Bringing you my first ‘Best of Beauty’ in 2015. I thought hard enough of what products I really liked last year. There’s hair and skin care faves besides makeup, surprisingly. I also found great beauty discoveries last year.
The Estee Lauder Honey High Gloss is light honey/very light copper shade with lots of gold shimmers. Mine comes in that “Not for sale” size.
The lip gloss has lots and lots and lots of gold shimmers as mentioned, but they’re not gritty and it doesn’t get messy especially when the lip gloss is gone. Those shimmers actually intensify the gloss to a pretty finish.
Swatches show color. This is actually sheer, but buildable to a really pale honey/copper if you want pale lips with shimmers. 😀 Longevity is quite good. I could still feel the gloss even after a moderate meal. Tackiness is no issue even.
Some months ago I super loved this lip gloss. Whatever look I came up with, this was always what I reach for to complete the look.
So here’s another from the Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights.
BonBon Lip Glace is actually a slightly darker shade of peach or a muted pink-orange. I loved this because it’s my HG MLBB. There was a time this was the only lip gloss I would wear wherever, whenever until I realized I have other lip products to use.
I already failed my personal challenge of one week’s reviews of lip glosses right after _one_ post. ^^;;; But I’ll try to make up for the past three days. Today, I’ll be showing the Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights and reviewing one Lip Glace from it. I have another to be up later although not a lip gloss review.
Anyway, the Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights was part of Laura Mercier’s Holiday/Winter release last year. The moment I saw it from a few beauty bloggers, I knew I just had to have it. It was an awesome gift for myself that I remember forgetting that stressful day at work when I got this. 🙂
A high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture.
This week _I shall challenge myself_ to blog about lip glosses. Good luck to me! Because you know how I can be such a procrastinator. 😛
I’m trying to like NYX lip products. Well, lip products are what I only own from them. I can’t say I fully like them. The NYX Butter Glosses are a hype over a lot of many beauty bloggers. I thought I should try as well. I got the Cherry Pie shade.
Cherry Pie is a red lip gloss that can be layered from slight sheer to very opaque coverage. The size of the lip gloss’s brush applicator is right for my thin lips. I forgot to take a picture of that. LOL
I had a makeup buying withdrawal last month (such #firstworldproblems!), so I went to SM’s beauty area to buy a few drugstore lippies. They were also on sale too. 😛

I like everything so far except Unapologetic because I haven’t tried it yet.
