Christian Louboutin Loubichrome Mini Nail Colour for Spring 2017

Christian Louboutin Loubichrome Mini Nail Colour for Spring 2017
Christian Louboutin Loubichrome Mini Nail Colour for Spring 2017

The polishes bottle the ultra-luxurious qualities of Specchio, a laminated leather with a mirror-like quality, loved by Christian Louboutin for its ability to capture light and take on new dimension. Infused with light-reflecting pigment pearls, the new colors deliver a playful chrome finish on nails. Highly pigmented, nails appears dipped in liquid metal. In energetic shades of candy red, lime green and magenta, Christian Louboutin imbues the typically more edgy look of metallic nails with a spirited feminine charm. For the first time, Christian Louboutin introduces individually sold miniature bottles of his beloved Nail Colour formula. Led by the designer’s inclination to mix and match, each one is housed in a multicolored chrome box featuring a combination of all three shades. The middle partition of the box reveals the shade inside. Each bottle is crowned with the brand’s signature calligraphy-style cap in a distinctive iridescent finish, another first for the brand. The motif changes when viewed at different angles, almost like a hologram.

Jetsetter

Makeup Geek Jetsetter Plush Lip Creme ($14.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. The color coverage was nearly opaque, while it had a smooth, cream-like feel that spread easily across the lips. It was a little slippery, so it did settle into my lip lines over the three hours it lasted. The formula did not dry out my lips and was fairly comfortable to wear.

The Plush Lip Creme formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a hybrid, “cream and mousse” consistency. The consistency has a very velvety, smooth feel that wasn’t heavy nor did it feel thin or watered down. It seemed to be quite flattering and forgiving when it was initially applied, but there were some shades where the color pulled into my lip lines while worn, and they only lasted two to four hours on me. They were more comfortable to wear than liquid lipstick that dries down to a matte finish and were mostly non-drying. They did not have any noticeable scent or taste to me.

Sephora | 10% Off Code for New & Requalified VIBs/VIB Rouges (2017)

Sephora.com, Inc.

If you’ve already requalified for (or recently became) Sephora’s VIB status or are VIB Rouge for 2017 and have already spent $350 this year, you’re eligible to get 10% off your order with code V436CB.

It is a one-time use code, and it is only valid for 21 days after the code has been issued.  This is the first year that I recall actually receiving an email from Sephora alerting me to use the code, so I thought I’d pass the info on! 🙂

Note: I did, however, officially I hit the $350 spending requirement on January 3rd, received the email January 6th, and the email says the code is valid until February 5th (longer than 21 days).

Here’s the fine print from the Beauty Insider Terms & Conditions:

New VIB members, VIB members who requalify for VIB, and VIB Rouge members who are in their requalification year (once they reach a $350 spend) will receive a 10% discount offer. Offer valid for 21 days after date of issuance in stores and online in the US and Canada and Sephora inside JCPenney stores. Not valid on international shipments or on jcpenney.com. Discount applies to merchandise only, not value of gift cards purchased, packaging, applicable taxes or shipping & handling charges. No adjustments on previous purchases. Merchandise quantities may be limited. Must be registered VIB member in good standing to redeem. Non-transferable. Cannot be combined with any other offers or employee discount. Offer subject to change, alteration, or termination by Sephora in its sole discretion at any time.

Coloured Raine Clutch Pearls Eyeshadow ($6.99 for 0.064 oz.) is a bright white with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, a little powdery but there was a creaminess present that seemed to help it bind better when pressed and patted on the lid. It had good pigmentation and blended out well. On me, I noticed fading after eight hours of wear.

28 Anthracite Black

Make Up For Ever 28 Anthracite Black Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep black with cooler, bluish undertones and blue, red, and silver pearl. Of all the shades I tried, this one had the greatest difference between dry and damp application.

Applied dry, it was softer, less intense, and warmer in overall tone, whereas damp application was intensely pigmented, very deep, and more metallic with a stronger, bluish sheen. The texture was soft, not quite as finely milled as other shades but still smooth. I tried to apply it as a cheek highlighter, but it was difficult to blend it out with the color looking patchy/cratered. I tried different brushes, using less product, and so forth, but I could never get it to apply evenly. It worked best as an eyeshadow, and it had the most impact with a damp brush, or else it was more like a soft, pearly black instead of a deep, inky black. On the lips, it was decent but was harder to manipulate for an even finish on light and mid-tone colors as any unevenness was very obvious–it worked well over black, though!
