Benefit’s new spring 2009 Full Finish Lipsticks ($18 each) make me want to bust out the pom poms and cheer for Team Lipstick!
Tabs cheers for Team Lipstick, too…
All three shades dress up this spring in full coverage color — no sheerness here, babes!
Passionista, a shimmery plum with gold micro-glitter adds a punch of color to the lips. I think she’ll look stylin’ paired with violet or gold eyeshadows. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Thrillin’ Brazillian, a shimmery golden peach, could look pretty fab on brown skin. It reminds of MAC High Tea lipstick (a light shimmery peach) but with more intense peach. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Lady’s Choice, a dusty rose pink, works wonders with nude lips. It leans toward the warm end of the spectrum on me. If you’re partial to warmer pinks, you might give Lady’s Choice a try. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Like Benefit’s other Full Coverage lipsticks, these new shades feel thick without seeming heavy. They’re unflavored but have a slight coconut scent that’s noticeable in the tube but almost undetectable applied.
I dunno why, but I’m going totally ga-ga for spring lipsticks. Perhaps the sexy hotness of Chanel’s Rouge Hydrabase lipsticks set the stage. Or maybe the amazing texture of the MAC Cremesheens pushed me over the proverbial lipstick edge. 🙂
Whatever set off my latest obsession, I’m going along with it, LOL! I haven’t been this excited about lipsticks in a long time.
Oh my gee, I watch too much TV
Ladies, did you catch last night’s ep of The City?
There’s a scene where the girls are chit chatting at their work holiday party. I had to watch it over and over because it looked like Whitney (love ya, girl!) was finally laying an overdue smackdown on Olivia.
So far this season, Olivia’s been saying lots of b*tchy, snide things to Whit, and Whitney usually lets it go because that’s how she is.
I was surprised — in a good way — that Whitney finally stood up for herself. Somebody needed to nip Olivia’s constant boasting in the bud, yo!
