Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer

Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer ($3.99 for 0.29 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark navy blue with a mega-sized dose of shimmer in light blue, blue, and silver. The only color that really came to mind was Zoya Twila, which is really quite different–it has horizontal bar glitter, so they don’t really look alike, but they had a similar depth of blue.

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “red-brown.” It’s a medium-dark, subdued red–it’s warm, brown-hued, and shimmer-less. MAC Pret-a-Papier is a bit redder and has lots of shimmer. Chanel Braise has shimmer and is slightly more plum. MAC Looks Like Sin is similar. MAC Whoops is brighter, more coral.

Intrigue is very comfortable to wear, because the consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, so it feels lightweight on lips but still has a cushion-y feel.  The texture is non-sticky as well.  This shade wore for four hours on me with semi-opaque color coverage, minimal settling into lip lines, and even color overall.  It has a delightfully high-shine finish that gives lips an illusion of fullness.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Launches


Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color Launches

Creamy Matte Lip Color is a revolutionary matte lipstick formula that uniquely combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy, moisturizing and highly pigmented, it glides comfortably onto lips but feels extremely lightweight. Not to mention, it’s got great staying power too.

Creamy Matte Lip Color is formulated with an exceptionally high pigment load for intense color payoff in a single application. Traditionally, matte lipsticks are not offered in such a varied shade range because the more pigment that exists within the formula, the drier it tends to be.

Creamy Matte Lip Color provides intense moisturization to the lips. This lip color is formulated with special emollients and soft waxes that form a conditioning barrier to lock in moisture.

Creamy Matte Lip Color’s unique formula is designed to slightly soften with the warmth of the lips, providing full color release. Skin comfortable film formers and an extremely high concentration of pigments contribute to advanced wear that will not transfer, smear or feather for up to 8 hours.
