After last week’s post on Lime Crime’s velvet, matte lip gloss (if you missed it, check it out here
) – we decided we wanted to share more glosses in a variety of great formulas and colors.
Bite Beauty Cinnamon Lip Plumping Oil
This unique gloss pairs the hydrating benefits of Argan Oil with the antioxidant power of resveratrol. This, with the subtle tingle and plumping effects make this gloss an incredible multi-tasker.
Makeup For Ever Aqua Rouge
This is an incredible product because it is both a lip gloss and a lip stain. The purpose behind this gloss was to create bold color with eye-catching shine without the heavy, sticky formula. As if that wasn’t enough, this gloss doesn’t smudge, transfer or fade!
NARS Satin Lip Pencil
With the right formula, lip pencils can be amazing products. A cross between a lip stick and a lip pencil, this product glides on easily with soothing nutrients and Vitamin E. This creamy, long-wear pencil is a must-have!
Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Stick
This lip stick comes in the most incredible shades and its formula contains hyaluronic acid which provides time-release moisture. This lipstick looks great, moisturizes and will plump your lips.
Givenchy Le Rouge
We adore the texture of this lipstick. It is a creamy texture that dries semi-matte which looks great in the bold shades it is available in. Not to mention that the the leather element on the lipstick cap – makes this lipstick so chic!
Yves St. Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine
These vibrant lipsticks have great lasting power and a beautiful luminous shine with a super-smooth application. This formula will protect your lips from free radicals and seal in the moisture.

We are so excited about this year’s Pantone color of the year. Emerald is a beautiful and versatile color that looks good on a variety of a skin tones. St. Patty’s Day is the perfect time to try out this emerald shade. Each year Sephora teams up with Pantone to release a variety of products in the year’s color.
Along with emerald, we love all of the dark, deep jewel tones, they make great makeup looks. Emerald alone is very versatile and can be sultry.
In this look it is used with shimmer on the inner corners of the eyes with bold, dark lashes. Above and below the eye there is a beautiful emerald color, and on the outer corner and crease above the eye, and on the lash line below the eye there is a very deep tourquoise color which helps give the eye depth.
Emerald eyes can also be clean and unique with this fun look. The emerald is used to create a cat eye. A more neutral beige was used on the lid first, then starting from the middle of the eyelid, emerald was blended up and out to create the cat-eye look. From the brow bone to the brows there is a matte blight brown shadow giving the eye depth.
We found some great how-to tutorials from Sephora that demonstrate different looks and techniques for a Pantone emerald green look that is perfect for St. Patty’s Day! Whether you love a soft smokey look, a bold and dramatic look or want to experiment with bold emerald liner, Sephora will show you step-by-step how to achieve these looks.
We hope that you enjoyed these looks and find one that you want to try out. Even if you aren’t celebrating today, sometime in 2013 you should try this beautiful and versatile shade.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I love this time of year…all the beauty sets come out with a vengeance! It’s non-stop shopping from here ’til December 25th! Woo-hoo! Yay for all the cosme-holics! 🙂
