Korres Cherry Lip Kisses ($19.50) is a set of three 0.20 oz. lipglosses (that’s full size!) by Korres for the price of just a little more than one single lipgloss. After trying #52 in Red Pink, I wanted to see how the other shades stacked up and if they were as opaque as that one (which was already a darker gloss).
Korres’ Cherry Full Color Gloss is a moisturizing, non-sticky gloss with a high-shine glossy finish that tends to be more pigmented than the typical gloss. Not all shades are created equal, so some shades are more opaque than others. The gloss has a faint scent of cherry, but it’s hardly noticeable (which may or may not be a good thing for you).
Do you ever get overwhelmed by beauty products? Or are you really savvy and never miss a beat?
Urban Decay 24/7 Super Stash ($36.00) is just one of three different sets of 24/7 Eye Pencils available for the holiday season. If I had to pick one, I’d opt for the Super Stash, if only because you can grab the four new shades all at once. In the Super Stash, you’ll receive nine half-sized 24/7 Eye Pencils (the full-size is 0.04 oz. and these are 0.02 oz. each). The Hi-Fi and Stereophonic sets include 24/7 Eye Pencils as well, and each is 0.03 oz., so they’re just a little smaller, but not by much, than the full-sized versions. Most of us will never get through a full-sized blue eye liner, so these sets are a great way to grab lovely colored liners without buying more than you’ll use.
Rather than just review the Super Stash, I’m actually going to review all of the 24/7 Eye Pencils I own. Apparently, I’ve finally collected them all except Baked, Crash (in the Stereophonic set), and Mildew (in the Hi-Fi set), which I suppose now I’m compelled to get just to round everything out. (Does anyone else feel that way… the need to complete when you’re nearly there anyway?)
Why 24/7 Liners? They’re pigmented, soft pencil liners that are easy to use, look great, and last awhile. I use these on my lower lash line all the time, because they add a lil’ pop of color, but they don’t migrate all over the place throughout the day. They’re fairly budge-proof (at least, on me), and they are so easy to apply, because they’re soft.
The majority of the shades available are also available in full-size, which go for $17 a pop and you get 0.04 oz. of product in each. The only thing I didn’t like about the Super Stash liners is that they do feel a little “stumpy” in your hand, because they are so short.
Guerlain Georgia Le Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick ($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a watermelon pink with a glossy, wet-look and tiny microspheres of shimmer that sparkle. This color clings to lips, and it looks natural, yet the color is still bright enough to make lips pop. I found this one was fairly opaque, too, which is something I have to have in any lipstick of this price. This one wore well for me throughout the day; I didn’t have to reapply for over four hours, but it will fade during eating/drinking, so it’s not immoveable. So far, this is one of my favorite shades of the Rouge G line up.
