  1. That OCC-lip is gorgeous! Not that id ever know where to wear it but whatever! :-)

  2. Hey Christine,
    I wondered if you could do a post of your favourite lip combo’s, with pictures included… You talk about them a lot so I want to now what it looks like! Now we jusr see both products worn alone…

    • I don’t often wear them as combos, as I am testing the wear of individual products! The rare exception is if I’m out and about, so I don’t have my camera with me!

  3. Not a big fan of the second one, but the other four look great!

    I bought Bobbi Brown’s Canary gloss and layer it over Guerlain’s Garconne for a fun holiday sparkle. Loving gold over red this season.

    I love Dolce and Gabbana glitter lipglosses. There are the creamy ones too, but I like the ones that are more sheer and glittery which I am referring to. There is not much inside as volume like the other brands, but the gloss is not sticky, but is shiny for a festive look or any fun look. I hate sticky lipgloss so I dont really buy gloss. You can layer over something with them.

    This Opulent lipgloss has the most amazing color I’ve ever seen!

  7. Bobi Brown Canary and Illamasqua Opulent are by far my favorites–gorgeous!!!

    I think the one that appealed to me from this list is Canary from Bobbi Brown, might have to look for it.

  9. I feel like Bobby Brown- Canary would looks amazing over a bright pink-red. It would be such a nice twist on a christmas look!

    My favorite gold lip color at this time is Guerlain Altoum Rouge Automatique. I like its sparkliness !
