Hey Everyone,

Time to add another post to my Ultimate Lipstick Review series. Probably one of the most overhyped products there are, are MAC lipsticks. I remember being crazy about them and now I’ve ended up with 12 or so lipsticks that I totally could do without. But despite the jazzy names and colors, is there really substance to these lipsticks? Honestly, in comparison to other lipsticks I’ve tried, they really lack. But, things are easier said than done so let’s look at one famous MAC lippie in Plink and forget about the YouTube hype that made me buy these lipsticks in the first place.

Hey Everyone!

Having a schmexy dark lipstick in your collection can really amp things up, or shall I say “vamp” things up. Although I do need to work on the puns,  I do like Benefit products and one product I absolutely love are their lipsticks. Smooth, silky and very pigemented, these lipsticks for sure pack a punch when it comes to putting on a bold lip. Let’s take a closer look at their Silky Finish Lipsticks!

Packaging:

Benefit Silky Finish Lipsticks come in a sleek black metal tube. It’s like lipstick in a can. Lightweight, simple, there’s not much else to say about the packaging except to stare blankly at its no friills design. The lipstick is also tubular shaped meaning it doesn’t have that pointed slanted tip that most lipsticks are known for. Sometimes it gets tough around your cupids bow but other than that, there’s not much to yay or nay at these tubes of awesomeness.

Hey Everyone,

After about more than a month of studying for exams, I am now taking the exams so I haven’t been able to dedicate myself fully to the YouTube department just yet. I hope you don’t mind the influx of more general beauty basic posts as well as my current lipstick frenzy. Cool stuff will follow once I finish these dreaded papers. *Faints*. Next time, I want all my exams in one week. I had my running shoes on at the start of exam season, but now I’m just crawling through.

On a lighter note, thanks to my previous looks of the day on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/roseannetangrs), I’ve been getting a few questions about the lipstick that I’ve been sporting day in and day out this winter. We’ve all heard of it I’m sure – it’s the much loved, talked about and beautiful YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick. The gem I own is in Beige Ultime and today I’ll be doing my review of it.

Hey Everyone,

There is always that one lipstick in your collection that makes you feel powerful. For me, it’s a lipstick that I’ve always cradled and that is the Chanel Rouge Allure in Super. The Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks are my ultimate favourite lipsticks. They are smooth on the lips but they feel light enough to be worn everyday. They do not carry a heavy scent yet their pigmentation is for sure something to yell loud and proud for. In fact, I like comparing them to being on Cloud 9. Little do we know that if you are a black haired beau, hot pink lipsticks will look great on you so read on!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for the 11 or so days I haven’t blogged. I feel so out of touch with my online self but it’s exam season and I’m sure you’re ether quite familiar or currently also traumatised. You get the idea.

For the next month or so, we shall immerse ourselves here in roseannebeauty land in a lipstick jungle. Although that phrase seems to be present in every metropolitan like movie, I’m not quite sure what it means. Either way, I’ll be hitching a ride and telling you to come along on my new series – the roseannebeauty Ultimate Lipstick Series – showcasing the drugstore and later department store lipsticks that I have tried out so far and my own personal take on them. Let’s go to the department store first.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve only started getting into the mood of wearing lipsticks and this is one lipstick that I have enjoyed using. I didn’t particularly buy this product, nor was it sent to me. It was part and parcel of a goodie bag from a L’Oreal beauty workshop I attended thanks to Meld Magazine. Nonetheless, I decided to do a review of my new everyday favourite.

The packaging looks like some extraterrestrial lipstick ready to be launched into space. It does look like a lipstick for older women:

What’s this lipstick particularly about?

L’Oreal boasts that it’s special mainly because of three things:
