Loreal Collection Privee by Freida Lipstick

Loreal have a new lipstick collection out, Collection Privee. The collection contains 6 colours, and each one is named after a celebrity. I am a magnet for anything mauve, so I picked up the Barely Parma or By Freida colour. It has a pleasant smell and glides on. There is a shimmer in this particular one. Overall a good quality, good priced lipstick.

Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L101 Ellis Red

But there are so many reds to choose from, also given that certain reds work better on you than other reds. Enter Ellis Faas L101 creamy lips "ELLIS RED" A true blood red. This red works on everybody regardless of your skin colour. This is true as I have seen and used this on different skin tones. The reason for this is because the colour is based on blood. Absolutely gorgeous.

Currently Loving: Dr Perricone, Bobbi Brown, Lipstick Queen

I'm really enjoying Dr Perricone skin care at the moment. I have the Formula 15 and High Potency Evening Repair. Formula 15 is intended for day use, combined with the evening serum. I also had quite generous samples of the Nutritive Cleanser and Face Finishing moisturizer. The cleanser stripped my skin quite harshly, but did clean very good, it took all my makeup off. The face finishing moisturizer I didn't like, because it rolled off my face. The serums however are amazing. I noticed a visible difference in my skins moisture and suppleness. Also loving at the moment is the Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Palette. And finally the the Look of Love by Lipstick Queen set which contains a nude pink cream lipstick, a pink shimmer lipstick, and a pink mauve cream blush.  …

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer sx 06

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer is a high pigment full coverage foundation. It's not a bb cream, a tinted moisturiser, a this or a that, it is a proper foundation.

Because of the high pigment, you need a tiny amount for a perfect look. You never end up with a masked face, however it is very important to get a correct colour match. With almost all other foundations you can go a shade lighter or darker but with this Sensual Skin Enhancer you wont be able to get away with it. I got shade 6 which has a very yellow base, at first…
