L'Oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche | Nude Ballet

I am always looking for the perfect Nude to add to my collection of lip products for the last year I have been using a Liquid lipstick from L'Oreal that I absolutely would die if they discontinued it. Now I will tell you that this liquid lipstick is not like your regular ones brought by brands such as Stila, Sephora Collection or Kat Von D, meaning L'Oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche does not dry down to a matte finish, nor does it dry out the lips like some tend to do. In fact it does the exact opposite, Micros oils infused with colour pigments leave your lips packed with luxurious colour without compromising the comfort on the lips. 

There are 16 shades to choose from anywhere from pink, red, deep wines and of course nude. Nude Ballet which is shown here is a beautiful pink Nude that is perfect for just about every skin tone. Including a deeper skin just by using a darker lip liner to fill the lips. The texture of the L'Oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color is very rich and creamy, it applied to my lips and distributed colour very evenly with their doe foot applicator. I found that it also made my lips look alot fuller and plumper than normal. Which I am totally okay with. 

The package inspiration much reminds me of YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy stains, the packaging is very elegant looking without having the price point of YSL. What I also love about the packaging is the plastic insert with the swatched colour to show what colour the product is before untwisting the wand. Back to the cost of L'Oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche you can find this line at Walmart or Shoppers Drug Mart, they usually cost anywhere in between $12-$14 depending on location. 

This is definitely one that you need back ups on because its just that pretty. Its also perfect for Brides looking for a nude shade that they can touch up with through out the day. 

What do you think about the L'Oreal Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche line? What shades are your fave?

Fragrance Friday: Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire

A couple months ago I visited the Flagship store for Guerlain, it was an evening of learning the beauty, brains and History behind such a beautiful brand. A little bit about Guerlain that I wanted to share with you. In 1828 Pierre- Francois Pascal Guerlain, Founder; who was the first perfumer opened his first boutique on Rue de Rivoli in Paris where alot of magic happened. Shalimar was the very first fragrance that Guerlain launched back in 1925 which was a tribute to a legendary love story between an Emperor and his wife. Shalimar is actually named after the "Gardens of Shalimar" which was the Emperors wife's favourite garden.

Fast forward to La Petite Robe Noire which was originally launched in 2009 as a limited edition scent, again in 2011 a second limited edition was presented. 2012 rolls around and Guerlain decided to relaunch the fragrance to offer the fragrance to a larger market in doing so the fragrance was then reformulated and developed by an in house developer by the name of Thierry Masser who also developed another one of my favorite fragrances Dior Addict back in 2002.

La Petite Robe Noire was inspired by the beauty and elegance of a Woman's little black dress. A must have in every woman's ward robe La petite Rode Noire is also an essential in every woman's Fragrance collection. Within this fragrance you will find aromas of Black cherry Bergamot, Red Berries, and Almond. You will also notice scents such as Aniseed, Tonka Bean, Vanilla and Patchouli.

The bottles themselves are replicas of the classical vials of the house such as such as L'Heure Bleue

Now being the fragrance junkie that I am I have both the second edition and this one I did notice that the newer of the two had a slightly softer scent more elegant and airy. Whereas the second edition was more luxurious and "expensive" feeling.

What are some of your favourites from Guerlain?

Maybelline Colorsational Rebel Bloom Lipstick Carnation Cabernet #970

Maybelline's spring collection Rebel Bloom was everything I wanted, great colour range, bright, run and very girly. What I didn't fancy was the fact that some shades that were launched in the US did not make it to Canada which I was not happy about at all. A few other collections from Maybelline fell into that same issue and I ended up buying them from Ebay.

Carnation Cabernet was a shade that was limited edition and not originally available when I did my post on the Rebel Bloom collection HERE  It seems as though this part of the collection was more on the Rich deeper scale of colour rather than the pastel shades from my original post HERE
Maybelline Colorsational Rebel Bloom Lipstick Carnation Cabernet #970

Carnation Cabernet is a Pink based Red that applies pretty opaque on the lips. As usual it has that beautiful vanilla scent, not over powering though. Still infused with honey nectar my lips are still left feeling soft, supple and hydrated and the wear time was my typical 4-6 hours as with the other lipsticks in the Maybelline family. Maybelline never disappoints me when it comes to their lip products they don't cost much and they still give you a quality look.

Do you own this colour? What do you think of it?
