{Spring lip gloss now}

I’m not sure what caused the shift in shade love but for the past week I’ve been obsessing with corals again. Even stranger…corals in gloss. Yes I! I who said that gloss was for single girls.

It’s like that pregnant woman who used to loathe the smell of a Big Mac but since the bundle of joy came along that burger is all she can think about. (Can you tell I’m hungry?) I can assure you, I’m not expecting but I am loving a good lip gloss lately…

{Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Heart shaped kisses}

It actually all started with the arrival of Marc Jacob’s Lust for Lacquer lip glosses. I did have a soft spot for Lancome’s Gloss in Love beforehand but it was the tingling, peppermint of Marc’s collection that hooked me.

Back in the rotation, Lancome’s Gloss in Love in Peach Show it a light and wonderful gloss that doesn’t feel like tar on the lips. Yes, that’s right, you can still smooch with that balmy texture.

{Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited in PK 20 C}

Another formula to fall in love with is Shu Uemura’s Gloss Unlimited. This too feels oh so silky on the lips and there’s a myriad of colours to choose from. This would be my least favourite shade because it’s so cool in tone (totally right for blondes, though!)

{The Brights}

Rarely seen without a bold lipstick – how can I say ‘no’ when they look like candy? Bold shades are standing out and during the summer the all come out to play. These newest additions to the ever-growing collection of bolds are so good I want to eat them up…

“I’ll never wear blue eyeshadow.” – I seem to make a habit of saying things I’ll never do and then just doing them anyway. When I received the Dior Summer collection it was one of those moments of make up revelation. I will and I must wear these shadows. Enter – the aquatic eye look.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Rose is cool – not because I say so, but because brands like Fresh, REN and Lancome are bringing it back. There was a time when it was seen as the scent of the elders — maybe I love it because I’m all grown up? In my series of rose-inspired posts I’ve decided to start with a couple of lip colours that are new to the market and something you can enjoy whether you’re a lipstick or lip gloss fan.

{The Body Shop Shimmer Palette – The Leona Lewis Edition $22}

Sometimes I can be such a girl. If it’s pink and shimmery I’ll love it with all my heart. That’s pretty much what happened when I put this gorgeous Body Shop Shimmer Palette on. A twist on their standard Shimmer Waves, this limited version has been moulded in to the shape of a deer to celebrate the brand’s collaboration with British singer, Leona Lewis. Read on to see what the product looks like on the cheeks…
