Burberry Cameo (08) Lipgloss

Burberry Cameo Lipgloss

Burberry Cameo (08) Lipgloss ($27.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a beautiful shade of peachy-melon with soft golden shimmer and a nice level of glossy sheen.  It’s semi-opaque, so it delivers a healthy dosage of color to lips, but it doesn’t cover or mask your natural lip color.  Those with redder lips may find that this turns their lips a rather pretty shade of coral, because that natural redness will peek through but be lightened up by the gloss’ coloring.

Burberry’s gloss is non-sticky, not too thin or thick, and feels rather comfortable on lips.  It’s not drying, and it lasts three to four hours on me (on the longer end of gloss for me).  It does have Burberry’s floral scent, though I did not notice it lingering while I wore it, but if you tend to be sensitive to scents, particularly rose or floral ones, this might not be something to pick up scent-un-sniffed.

The packaging is right in line with the brand’s makeup range; the gunmetal, checked cap with a clear tube (so you can see the gloss color).  Burberry didn’t skimp on the product with 0.20 fl. oz., which is about average for designer brands or above average for high-end brands.

Every Man Jack Shave Cream Review

Every Man Jack Shave Cream

The Tech GuyShaun, aka The Tech Guy, aka my boyfriend, is here with another must-read “manly” review. He’s twenty-seven with normal-to-dry skin and suffers from no more acne (much to my envy!).  This guy is all about GTL.  Well, gym.  And laundry.  On occasion.  OK, when he runs out of clothes!

Shaun enjoys long walks on the beach, vegging out on the couch watching chick flicks, and cuddling with Mellan. Or maybe not! He handles all the behind-the-scenes action here at Temptalia, from tech support to server woes to being my shoulder to cry on.

Some products are too over the top with their packaging, but this time we have the complete opposite. Packaging so dull that light can’t escape it. So lackluster that you nearly fall aslee…. What, huh?! Sorry, I was staring at the packaging and dozed off… Where was I?

Every Man Jack, which is one of the most ridiculous names for anything that I’ve ever heard is a serviceable Shave Cream ($5.99 for 6.7 fl. oz.), however, it cost me my marriage.. Intrigued?! I know I am!

Sunday Link Love, Volume #041

Happy Sunday… if you’re on the west coast, I suppose…

Whew! It’s been a LONG day, LONGER weekend, and dare I say it… so happy it’s over!  I spent the majority of my weekend at school for a course called “Spirit of the New Workplace,” which is an intensive 5-day course (which is the equivalent of a full quarter course).  I just keep telling myself it’s better than ten weeks, twice a week, just an hour and a half at a time… LOL!   I’ve got three more days to go, but hopefully I can start working on my mile long to-do list after morning classes tomorrow!

Here’s hoping your weekend was infinitely better! 🙂
