If you have been following along, you may already know I am a sucker for sheer lipsticks. I am not a huge fan of thick, cream lipsticks, or sticky lipglosses. When I noticed Laura Mercier Stickgloss Rouge a Levres, I was intrigued! The packaging labeled it as a “gloss,” yet it appeared to be a lipstick. Hmmmm. . . this looked like a fun investigation!

Since spring lipstick is either golden, beige, or vampy, I decided to try out Black Orchid in Laura Mercier’s Stickgloss Rouge a Levres. Why not go vampy when trying out a gloss? Black Orchid is vampy indeed! It is a dark purple color which is edgy yet seasonally appropriate. Love that!

I was not quite sure what to expect in a stickgloss. Would it be sticky like a lipgloss, or would it be smooth like a sheer lipstick? When I applied my new Laura Mercier Stickgloss Rouge a Levres in Black Orchid, I was pleasantly pleased! It applies just like a sheer lipstick. Three cheers for no stickiness! Whoo-hoo!

The composition of sheer lipstick is lightweight and natural; which is exactly what this lipstick feels like. There isn’t anything sticky, slimy, or annoying about it. Love that!

The part of Laura Mercier’s Stickgloss which is glossy, is how it looks. There is more color, or pigment, then with a sheer lipstick. In fact, the color also has some shine; which is what gives off that glossy effect. It really is perfection in a tube.

I love how Black Orchid looks. It gives off that perfectly on-trend, dark, vampy lipstick look without being too dark and costumy. After all, I am a Mother of three, I cannot walk around in stage makeup. Can you imagine? Yikes!

Laura Mercier’s Stickgloss Rouge a Levres is a new favorite of mine. I am looking forward to trying out new colors as the seasons progress. You can find it in many color choices online here.

It’s here! The Chanel spring 2017 beauty collection has arrived. With it, we have two beautiful new Rouge Coco Shine hydrating sheer lipstick colors! Love! Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Noir Moderne and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Beige Dore are the two new IT lipstick colors for spring 2017!

Although I wear lipsticks from a few different brands, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine is my all-time favorite lipstick. I love the sheer nature of the lipstick; plus, it always hydrates my lips. It is comfortable, never smears, applies evenly, never cakes, and wears off evenly. That is perfection.

For spring 2017, we are seeing beige hues, and deep, dark, autumn-like hues. The new lipstick colors from Chanel for spring 2017 reflect this trend in makeup. Beige Dore is a golden beige hue which is easy to wear daily, and to work. Noir Moderne is an avant-garde, dark purple, which if it wasn’t sheer, would be as vampy as it gets! Noir Moderne is perfect to wear at night, and if you are the daring type, wear it during daylight hours too! Why not?!

Here are swatches of me wearing the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine spring 2017 lipstick colors. My darling little ten-year-old daughter took these photos of me, so I apologize in advance for my expressions. She was making faces while snapping the pictures, which in turn, made me laugh. But I digress. . .here are the spring 2017 colors!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine hydrating sheer lipstick Beige Dore

This is the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Beige Dore lipstick. I love this color for everyday wear. It is a golden beige color which blends well with any color palette. It will be easy to wear with all of the spring colors hitting store shelves! Beige Dore by Chanel will be my go-to lip color this spring 2017 season. Love!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine hydrating sheer lipstick Noir Moderne

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Noir Moderne lipstick is a vampy, deep, dark purple hue which is easy to wear since it is sheer. For me, this will be my nighttime lipstick this spring 2017. It will also work well at fashion week in New York. If you like to take chances with your daytime makeup, Noir Moderne lipstick will be a fun lip color to wear during the day this spring 2017 season. I love this color!

So there they are! The new lipstick colors from Chanel for spring 2017. What do you think of Beige Dore and Noir Moderne? Will you be rocking these colors this spring 2017 season? I plan to wear them often! Beige Dore will be my daily go-to lipstick; it already has turned out to be!

Makeup c/o L’Oreal Paris fall 2016 beauty collection from top: eye shadows / lip palettes / limited edition celebrity inspired lipsticks / foundation with sunscreen / lash primer / liquid eyeliner

L’Oreal Paris has introduced their fall 2016 makeup collection, and it is beyond fabulous! There are several eye shadow palettes in neutrals, and on-trend shades of blue. The colors go perfectly with classic looks, and this season’s 1970s inspired designs. I love the large amount of neutrals, blues, and metallics for the fall season. They are on trend, and fabulous!

The foundation is beyond amazing. It is long lasting, contains sunscreen, and comes in a squeezable tube. This makes getting just the right amount out of the bottle, to apply on my face, easier than ever! This design is genius.

My favorite part of the L’Oreal Paris fall 2016 collection are the lipsticks. They are inspired by celebrities and come in the perfect colors. There are various shades of pink, and purple. My two favorites are “Eva” and “Juliette.” I plan on bringing them to New York Fashion Week with me! I have been wearing “Juliette” non-stop lately too. The lipstick is moisturizing, and has a nice scent. It applies smoothly, without clumping. Love!

Fall 2016 is all about 1970s inspiration, shades of blue, metallic hues, neutrals, and berry hues. L’Oreal Paris’s fall 2016 collection has the perfect colors to fit into the current trends for the autumn season. Love it!
