Head over heels for this gloss!
By the Dolce&Gabbana makeup line- this lipgloss in shade “Raspberry” is gorgeous!
I got it from the Bouquet makeup collection spring 2012. The closest D&G store u can get is from UAE.
Dolce & Gabbana Lip Glosses are very moisturizing- it stays on for approx 4-5 hrs.. It smells sooooo god!! Like candy/sweet rosy perfume!
It is super glossy- like all the other shades in the D&G line! It is also has high pigmentation!
The color is pink ofcorse- rosy pink- not so light & not so dark… the color is just perfect! Since it is not a very pale color & not so dark it will match a lot of skin tones. The color is so floral and calls for spring- although it’s autumn now where you would expect crimsons and all those darker shades- I still love to wear pinkish hues – matches any season you’re in!
I swear the color is just perfect!
I love to use this lipgloss on it’s own- has a great color- but it’s your choice if you want to add a lipstick underneath!
Check out my swatch below
The only disadvantage is the price tag- quite pricey!
I had this blush for a while now… but i wanted to test it out a couple of times before writing my opinion!
I have this blush from Illamasqua … (love this brand btw)..
The blush is called ” Unrequited“…
It’s a beautiful soft baby pink matt finish blush. Reminds me of MAC’s ‘pink swoon’!
A beautiful light bubblegum pink… very pigmented (so you won’t need much on your brush)…
It lasts all day!
I have used it on a model 1 month ago- “the august photoshoot” & the result was dolly like flawless naturally beautiful!
It might seem baby like to you but it tends to warm up a bit. It’s a really amazing vibrant color! It suits all skin tones.
The color blends well- just add a pop of powder on top of the blush to blend smooth edges & tone it down.
What I also love is the squarish packaging of the blush… a bit different than the round ones we are used to. Sophisticated packaging.. attractive.
Valentine’s day is coming up!
Celebrate your day preferably with a minimal eye look- but grab attention with your bold colorful lips!
For Valentine ’s Day, you can stick to reds or pink as a lip shade- depends on what you like more. Keep your look flirty and sultry- and most importantly- SIMPLE.
VALENTINE LIPS can be RED or PINK…
A beautiful eye look to go with either RED shades or PINK shades is : sweeping a soft brown/dark beige eyeshadow (I love wedge from MAC) and add a thin to thick black gel liner (love bobbi brown’s)- apply mascara… but then add some false lashes to make the eyes dramatic.
WHY PINK LIPS?
Not everyone wears red lips on valentines. Many go with pink shades! Pink resembles cuteness, fun, love and romance. It’s the simpler type of shade for valentines. Not only Reds scream sexy, but so does the pinks!
In this post- I will focus on my favorite PINK lipstick shades to wear on V-DAY!
MY FAV 6 PINKS FOR V-DAY
PLEASE ME- MAC
This by far is my favorite daily lipstick! It’s a subtle pink- with a matte texture. I always apply Bobbi Brown’s “candy” lipliner with it. This shade goes beautifully with olive skin! The color is stunning- a soft baby pink! PLEASE ME DEFINITLY PLEASED ME!
PALE PINK POT ROUGE- BOBBI BROWN
Not just a lipstick but a blush too- This has always been a favorite of mine! The pink is simply- to die for! The pot is long lasting- I swear- it never finishes! It is one of the prettiest natural pinks out there!
I love applying it with a brush sometimes and most of the times just using my finger to tap it with for a natural flush!
This shade is warm toned, very watermelonish hot pink. Keep in mind- it is NEON PINK. A bright color that will light up your face!
It has an Amplified crème formula (moisturizing formula, smooth finish & intense pigmentation)
This shade is a fun, bright & rosy! It’s sooooo creamy- Cremesheen formula (very light & slick- deliver full color coverage- gives lips a shine!). This has blue undertones- will give the illusion of whiter teeth. I consider this a very girly color, more like a medium rose pink shade.
PINK NOUVEAU- MAC
This is an amazing bright pink! It’s a Barbie pink shade- or Fuchsia pink. It’s a satin formula (semi-matte & long wearing). This lipstick may dry up quick. Many celebrities love this lipstick: Nicki Minaj, Katty Perry, Beyonce.
A favorite of many girls out there- this is a bright and fun color which I believe combines some peach & soft mauve pink hues. It’s another lipstick that gives you the Barbie look- but not as intense as Pink Nouveau. It has an Amplified crème formula (moisturizing formula, smooth finish & intense pigmentation)
Since October is known as the “national breast cancer awareness month”, let’s think pink!
I’m gonna post my all time favorite products- pink of course!
Some I might have wrote about before- so bare with me!
MAC’s “expensive pink” eyeshadow
This eyeshadow is a pinkish peachy color. It’s a mixture of bright/baby/&hot pink- all in one tub. Dirty pink with some hints of gold! You might think it’s bold to wear pink eyeshadow, but this one is just amazing on its own!!! (natural looking)
MAC’s “neo-orange” loose eyeshadow pigment
This intense pink salmonish color is one of a kind. It can also be described as an electric peach, orange mixed with pink.
The trick is using a tiny dot to blend it the “background” of a smoky eye. When blending with black it gives a brownish/copperish color. Don’t be scared from the color- this pink will go beautifully IF BLENDED. DO NOT USE THE PRODUCT ON ITS ONE.. FAIL!
MAC’s “please me” lipstick
It’s a soft baby pink. It looks gorgeous on everyone! It’s matte though!
Bobbi Brown’s pot rouge “pale pink”
Comes in a pot, can be used for both cheeks & lips
A very pinkish pale color or a bright pastel pink- I just luv luv luv this shade!
MAC’s “pink swoon blush”
The bubblegum Barbie-ish color! This bright pink color gives you the doll cheeks. Soft pink, very subtle
NARS “Turkish delight” lipgloss
Voted for Best lip gloss for olive skin-2011 “InStyle”- a dense gloss with a pink sorbet shade, or a milky pink (I would describe). I use it on top of please me or angel lipstick (MAC).
Bobbi Brown “Candy” lip pencil
A medium-bright pink lip pencil- I love this! I love its color. Goes with almost all pink lipsticks- from MAC mostly!
Bobbi Brown “Sand Pink” Blush
It is a gorgeous soft pink with a hint of berry shade. Can be also described as a mauve pink blush- gives you a flushed look! It has brown undertones so it will give a natural flush to the cheeks. What I love about it is that it’s not too light & not too dark!
Do not apply a lot of it though!
It would really mean a lot if you all contribute to charities for this matter- help the patients with breast cancer! Let’s make a difference…
