Lancome Untamed Plum La Laque Fever
Lancome Untamed Plum La Laque Fever

Sugar Plum Fairy Lips with Lancome

Lancome Untamed Plum La Laque Fever Lip Shine ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a darkened plum with a little wine in it and gold shimmer. It’s really a beautiful color on the lips, because it’s just dark enough to be dark, but it’s not so dark it’s too bold. You could even wear it alone, just running errands, which is really nice. The La Laque Fever is an interesting gloss formula (“lip shine” in Lancome-speak), because it has the glossiness of a gloss but the color is more like that of a lipstick. I find the glossy part wears off after an hour or two, but the color remains for six or longer and does make it (mostly) through a meal, as well. Some of the shades run more opaque than others, with this one being more semi-sheer/semi-opaque–it gives my lips a very nice, plummy tint, but it’s not opaque.

Temptalia Asks You

Do you like your lipgloss flavored? Does it matter? Any favorite/disliked flavors?

Temptalia's Answer.

Nope, I don’t care either way. If pressed, I’d say I prefer not flavored, because I don’t have a tendency to lick my lips… except if they’re really, really sweet!

MAC All Ages, All Sexes, All Races Collection

MAC Cosmetics All Ages, All Races, All Sexes Collection

U.S. Launch Date: January 7th, 2010

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes is our credo. Now M∙A∙C takes the “One World” idea further than ever, with a multi-culti colour story intent on a universal focus – spectacularly shaded and shaped brows for all, because beautiful people come in colours! Miraculously matched to the individual, Impeccable Brow Pencil is the ultimate artist’s tool to fill, lengthen and shape, with a firm tip that sharpens application for high-performance precision. Penultimate Brow Marker, in one shade suits all, has a liquefied glide adept at the all-important arch. But that’s not all: Lipstick, Lipglass, Eye Shadow and Nail Lacquer shade extensions speak your language, a match for every international skin tone.

RE:  New Pigment Packaging

Yes, indeed — it’s true, there is new packaging for pigments. I checked with MAC, and each pigment contains 4.5 grams (at least for All Ages, All Races, All Sexes).  The packaging is permanent going forward and the price is still the same.  MAC will be phasing out the old jar packaging. This generally means until they’ve run out of stock.  I do not have a hard date, but I expect we’ll see it in 2010, since the new packaging will launch first in the All Ages, All Races, and All Sexes collection on January 7th.
