Burberry Devon Sunset Lip Cover Lipstick

Burberry Devon Sunset Lip Cover Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft coral with warm, peachy undertones. MAC So Vain is very similar, perhaps with a very subtle pink tint. Lancome Stylistia is similar but pinker. YSL Peach Passion is lighter, less pink.  It has just enough pink in Devon Sunset to make it a wearable warm coral on both cool and warm complexions.

There is a very delicate shimmer that translates into a luminous finish.  It has a nice level of shine and sheen so it makes lips look fuller and smoother.  The color coverage is opaque, and the texture is soft, smooth, and creamy so it applies beautifully. I love the lightweight texture, because it’s easy to wear, hangs on for four hours, and feels hydrating while you wear it. Burberry did a nice job with the packaging, too, as it has a magnetic cap that will swivel the lipstick cap back into place, ensuring closure.

5 Playful Plum Blushes

5 Playful Plum Blushes

Plum blush can be used in a variety ways, from subtle to bold, so it can really bring drama to the face and create a look that really emphasizes the cheeks if one desires.  If you have a cooler complexion, you may look for a plum with a subtle pink or berry tone, while warmer complexions may look for a plum with a subtle brown undertone.  Or throw away the rules and go for the one that strikes your fancy 🙂

  1. Bobbi Brown Plum — rich pink plum
  2. Burberry Cameo — softened brown-plum
  3. theBalm Cabana Boy — shimmered plum-berry
  4. NARS Oasis — dirty plum with gold shimmer
  5. MAC Plum Foolery — dirty plum with a shimmer-sheen

What’s your favorite plum blush?

NARS Night Breed Nail Lacquer

NARS Night Breed Nail Lacquer ($17.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described simply as “black with silver glitter.” It’s a deep black with silver shimmer and sparkle that’s opaque in two coats (but one coat packs quite a punch of pigmentation). I don’t have anything quite like this. I think the closest shade I could think of was China Glaze Tinsel Town, but it has a lot more silver glitter and shimmer, so it looks more silver than it does black. China Glaze Stone Cold has more uniform and smaller-sized shimmer, plus it has a matte finish.

NARS nailed the formula of their Night Series shades–the color coverage is fantastic, the shades are nuanced, and they even dry faster than most polishes. It does dry down to a flatter finish, so a shiny top coat is a must if you prefer a glossy finish. The wear of NARS polishes is remarkably good–minor tip wear and no chipping after seven days.  The application was easy and required no special effort; Night Breed had a good consistency–not too thick or too thin–that yielded even color without streaking.
