Orange Lipglass. Can you dig it?

Orange lips anyone? You know I’m down. Then again, if it came in a hue warm enough for my skintone, I’d rock a blue gloss. Oh wait…I have. Point is, I’m a gal who knows no limits when it comes to different color lip glosses.

Take MAC’s Caqui for example.

This is another wonder from the MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions collection. I fell in love with Hocus Pocus, took All of My Purple Life to the beach and now Caqui is my newest BFF. Described as a persimmon orange, Caqui was the only other lipglass from the collection that I felt so inclined to buy. This gorgeous lippie did not disappoint me either.

The cool thing about orange lip glosses is even if you don’t like them, you can always warm up the shades with a pinker or browner lip pencil. I happen to like this gloss by itself though. It’s pigmented and opaque enough to wear alone aaaaand works beautifully on top of a red lipstick too. I just found this kid to be incredible versatile and quite flattering.

Not bad, eh?

A girlfriend of mine told me that she didn’t think she could pull off an orange lippie. One swipe of Caqui changed her mind.

And she isn’t exactly the most daring gal in the world. 8) I say give Caqui a try. You can still grab it online at MACCosmetics.com. But run, don’t walk, darlings. I’m not sure how much longer Caqui will be around for.

Are you a fan of orange lippies? Or not so much?

All of My Purple Life. Purple lips=LOVE

Okay, so why am I just now doing a post on this gloss? I don’t know. I’m weird. I will be so totally in love with something for days, weeks and months at a time and forgot to do an actual blog post about it. Haaaaa! My bad, fam. All of My Purple Life made its debut in the MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions collection.

 

Now we all know how I don’t have a favorite color, right? If, and only if I had to choose one, it would be a rich jewel-toned purple like this baby.

Stunning, right? Nothing rocks more than a highly pigmented gloss. When you don’t feel like messing around with lip brushes and lip liners, a gloss with intense pigment like this is what a gal needs. All of My Purple Life does not disappoint.

At the same time, if you want to take AOMPL down a notch, you can always blend it with a clear or light pink gloss. I’ve heard a lot of ladies say how they just can’t rock a purple lipgloss.

Excuse me? Says who? Girl, you better rock a purple gloss and rock it hard. I love how unexpected a purple lip is. Red lips? Seen it. Pink lips? Yawn. Burgundy lips? Go away. But a purple lip? It’s a total surprise. It’s memorable and any one who dare rocks one OWNS it, baby.

Even at the beach.


You were able to grab All of My Purple Life? It was released and then it was sold out. Then he was re-released and according to MACCosmetics.com, it looks to be sold out AGAIN! But keep checking. Hopefully they’ll restock again soon.

All hail purple lips!

MAC’s Dazzleglass

I don’t know ‘bout yall, but I am a serious lip gloss, girl. I don’t wear it as often as I used to (I’m trying to become a mature woman so I’m into lipsticks, ha!) but I still have some obsession with a good gloss. MAC’s Dazzleglass never really intrigued me right away but being the MAC addict, that I am…I still had to check it out.

Dazzleglass…..I gotta give it props. At $16.50, MAC Cosmetics defines these babies as “High-shine + large particle quartz and opal crystal captured in a great new formula with light-reflecting, crystalline iridescence. Umm, so what does that mean in laymen (or women , ha!) terms? Just that it’s a pretty shiny gloss. Is it tacky? Yeeep. Is it lightweight? Hmmm, not quite. Does it have a better staying power than Lipglass or Lustreglass? YES!!! I absolutely love how long this gloss stays on. Longer than the average gloss I’ve worked with.

Do I think it’s necessary to haul more than one? No, but that may just me being cheap. In my eyes, a gloss is a gloss. $16.50 is already a stretch for ONE so I can’t imagine hauling more than that. To prevent myself from even being tempted to purchase more than one, I picked the one Dazzlegass that caught my eye, swatched it, purchased it and walked away.

Let me introduce you to “Get Rich”.

Pretty pretty, uh? This color almost reminds me of Squeeze It from the Fafi Collection, except a little more sheerer and glittery. Here’s how it looks alone.

Just ehhh….like a really ole’ gloss to me. I would still wear it by itself because of the staying power, but I wasn’t too impressed.

So I decided to pair it with a lipstick. Here is MAC’s 3D lipstick worn alone.

I’m tellin’ you…I love me some 3D. I could wear this color everyday. It’s perfect. Topping Get Rich over this gives it a nice little POP that I’m thinkin’ I could incorporate everytime I wear 3D. Check it…

I can dig it. Not super impressed but again, the staying power of these babies are really what turn me on. What are your thoughts on Dazzleglass? Pass or a must have?

Let a sista know!
