MAC Tabloid Beauty: Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolour , Lip Swatches

Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolours only vary from the regular PLWs in one way: they have a shimmery gloss on the end. However, you can actually purchase replacement gloss ends (just alone), and you can always opt to swap it for the regular clear gloss or replace it with the shimmery one. I’d recommend the same application technique with these as I did in the previous post. Oh, and while I’m remembering, last I checked, you can B2M for these as well… (Hopefully, someone who has done B2M more recently than I–it’s been many months for me–can confirm or deny!)

MAC Tabloid Beauty: Pro Longwear Lipcolour , Lip Swatches

Tabloid Beauty is a “collection” of sorts, but all of the products included in the collection are permanent products. MAC is showcasing some of their products that have some stellar results that are scientifically proven (according to the website). I’m only reviewing and showcasing the Pro Longwears — also included in the launch is Penultimate Eye Liner ($16.50), Plushlash ($13.00), Prep + Prime Line Filler ($19.50), and Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone ($19.50) — all of which I’ve reviewed previously.  Tabloid Beauty launches in-store on February 25th!

Lancome L’Absolu Creme de Brilliance:

Like you, fancy ingredient names don’t mean anything at first. I typically don’t even read the press release or description in its entirety until after I’ve tried it. (I prefer to try things as I would normally… diving in head-first, not caring about the science behind it, and just getting down to business!) Then I go back and read the product’s description, check out tips or insight on the website, etc. to see if my experience lines up with what the product was supposed to do.

The Spring Season: Napoleon Perdis Havana Lipstick

NP Set Havana Lipstick ($15.00) is a soft, creamy medium pink with a subtle pink shimmer. This is an easy-to-wear shade for just about any skin tone, because it’s not too yellow or blue-based–very much neutral. It has a very soft feel when applied to lips and not at all drying. I got about three hours of wear with this shade in particular. There’s a bit of a glossy sheen to it, but I still like to layer a lipgloss on top for extra pop.
