If you remember my T.LeClerc post, as seen HERE, I shared the lovely shades of lipstick of the Loved By You Collection. The moment I received two of those lippies, Charme and Candeur, I had to control myself from swatching! The bold, lovely colors were screaming at me “TRY ME NOW!” LOL! Finally, here’s my review and swatches of T. LeClerc Rouge Transparent Lipstick in Charme (Orange Red) and Candeur (Bright Fuchsia).

Available in a variety of shades inspired by 1950s icons, this lipstick enhances your smile in just one application. Its clear finish lets you wear bold colours while keeping up your chic appearance.

Imagine the spirit of earth and fire, infused into an illuminating new mosaic of colour. I was able to get a sneak peek of Laura Mercier’s Folklore Summer 2013 Collection during its launch.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick Review

Remember my review on Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in a pot? What happens when the cream shadow comes in a stick? Bobbi Brown releases a new Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick. I was given the Vanilla shade to try. After weeks of using it, here’s a review. Product Information “Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick is designed for the modern woman on the move. Just swipe it on and go—it’s that easy.” – Bobbi Brown Effortless and high impact—that’s the essence of NEW Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick. This do-it-all formula glides on tug-free and can be used to shade, define, smoke up and highlight eyes. In subtle to eye-popping shades that last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading, it’s a stroke of genius. I love it because… it’s very smooth to apply. I don’t feel any tugging on the skin. it’s really long-wearing. I can wear it for more than 8 hours without creasing. it can work as an eye shadow base for a more intense color. Since I have Vanilla, it works as my eye shadow primer! I use it as a base for any color of eye shadow powder. it can also work as is, even without eye shadow powder on top. I also use my Vanilla shade to highlight my brow bone area. it has really intense pigment in just one swipe. it’s...
