Reader KaylaK told us how Clinique was revamping their sun care line, and I thought to myself, “Why? What’s wrong with it?!” Nordstrom.com is showing the newly re-done sun care line, and it all looks STUNNING! I have to give Clinique kudos on making it fun, summery, and just cool. The packaging is sleek and stands out without being wasteful. I haven’t heard if they’ve changed up formulations yet, but I’m diggin’ the new look. What about you?
If you’ve looked at swatches (or even tried it on in-store) of Strayin’ lipstick from MAC’s Hello Kitty Collection and thought to yourself, “This is just too bright!” I urge you to think again! First, whenever a lipstick seems too bold or bright for you, remember you can always sheer it down by using less, mixing it with clear gloss/balm, or blotting after applying.
But more importantly, you can always use a lipgloss to blend the color and adjust it to the perfect hue flattering for you. Strayin’ runs on the cool side, and I tend to look better with warmer tones. By adding Nice To Be Nice Lipglass (a glittery orange-y gloss) on top, I was able to warm up the lipstick to just the right shade that works well with my skin tone.
