In this weekly series, I’ll be talking about some of my favorites / loves for the week.
A newly purchased product I am loving
I try to stay away from the MAC limited-edition hype, but I was very intrigued by the sound of the huggable lipsticks. I first bought Out For Passion, and I loved it so much that I also bought Rusty. My favorite thing about these lipsticks is that they do really “hug” the lips – they’re not slippery and they transfer less than other lipsticks with similar pigmentation levels and a glossy finish.
I wasn’t planning to review these – they’re sold out now – but let me know in the comments if you’re still interested in reviews/swatches of items that are not available.
A long-time or rediscovered favorite I am loving
I first wrote about Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow back in 2012, and I still love it. Currently, my favorite shades are Solstice Halcyon (that’s the one with the big dip in the upper left corner), Olive Violetear (middle row, right side), and Blackpepper Jay (not pictured; I have a single rather than a pan).
My most-wanted wishlist item
I spent some time playing with several new items at Sephora last weekend, and I love the color of the new NARS Matte Multiple in Laos ($39 at Sephora). The formula seems nice as well, though it’s hard to say since I just swatched it on the back of my hand. Here’s a quick in-store swatch; Laos is the top one. .
(Note: I started writing this post earlier in the week – and then purchased the Laos at The Makeup Show LA yesterday. So this isn’t on my wishlist now, but I’m going to leave the post as-is. Review coming soon!)
A blog post I especially enjoyed reading.
This is not from the last week, but worth posting – Jennifae.com has posted three “Swatchfest Sunday” posts with drugstore lipstick swatches, which I now have bookmarked for reference. Check them out:
