After a small visit to Sephora and a department store this weekend, I hauled a few things, not much though. At Sephora I was trying to decide if I should get one of the new Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks, but unfortunately none of the colors really cought my eye, so I went for the new Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural lipsticks. Sephora here in Greece brings only a few of the shades, I think they were only 12 or 15, not sure. As you can see from my haul, I LOVE peachy/coral lipsticks and lipglosses!
Sooooo what I hauled:
- Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural in N36 Corail Irisé
- Bourjois Effet 3D lipgloss in 52 Corail Idyllic, from the Spring 2012 collection
- Sephora I.T. Blending Brush
- Sephora nail polish remover
- Seventeen Super Shine polish 336, from the Spring 2012 collection
- Essence XXXL Shine lipgloss in 18 Sparkling Papaya
I have to say that I love the glossy and simple packaging of MUFE's lipsticks, they're really practical comparable to YSL or Dior's lipsticks. And I find it kind of cool that the logo is all over the packaging, on every side of it.
The N36 is a coral shade, with some pink and orange in it, with fine shimmers. The texture is sheer and smooth, it's somehow in the same category with lipsticks like Dior Addict and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, but not as glossy as them , and it's quite pigmented for that type of lipstick.
The 2 lipglosses I got they look kind of similar but they're not. Texturewise the Essence is sheer and watery, with sparkles in it, Bourjois is not watery, creamier with tiny shimmers. Colorwise the Bourjois has more pink in , but on lips they both look similar.
The Sephora I.T. Blending Brush is a really big and fluffy brush, not the typical blening brush type like Mac 224 or 217, which i already own, but I wanted a bigger one for my lazy make up days, it's also a good brush for highlighting the brow bone. I love the Sephora I.T. brushes, I also have 2 others, they have a really good quality with cool design!
The Seventeen Super Shine #336 nail polish is from their new Spring collection, it's a bright light pink (if that makes any sense!!), it looks kind of neon but it's not. The pic unfortunately cannot pick up the brightness of the shade.
As for the Sephora Smooth nail polish remover, what can I say, it's a polish remover! It's very effective comparable to others that I've tried, and it doesn't leave my nails dry, BUT it smells awful!!! It's really powerful and I cannot stand it.
