Clarins Paris|Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick – Hit or Miss

 

This weekend was super mellow, we stayed in Friday and my hunny bear picked up some take out food for dinner and we just relaxed and caught up on some TV. Since coming back from vacation, I’ve been pretty busy coming back to blogging. I was also excited for the get ready to school stuff for my little guy. So yeah, lots of emotion brewing and happening for the past weeks.

Anyways, Now I’m all ready to take the week head on! (giggle).

While I was on vacation several weeks ago, it rained on the second day and we decided to be indoors and so we stopped by Winners (Canadian Retail Stores).

If you’re a long time follower, you already know that I’m a beauty junkie! I love to try new products and trends and when I saw this Clarins Paris Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick there,  had to get it and give it a go. I was really excited with this one. I posted it on my Instagram and shared a lip swatch if you like to check them out.

For the past few days, I’ve been wearing it daily and I really don’t have anything bad to say about this sheer lipstick. Before I delve into my thoughts and opinion on the product, I want to say that I love Clarins skincare products and this is my first experience testing out the lipstick. If you’ve any recommendations on their makeup products you want me to try, don’t forget to leave comments below.

Let’s talk about the lipstick. I love the silver bullet packaging. Very sleek and looks luxe. There is a logo embossed on the top cap. The shade I got is in Coral Tulip.

I don’t feel that I wear a lot of makeup, but would say I wear a lot of products. That might sound contradicting, but I mean that I don’t wear heavy makeup. If that make sense!

It feels comfortable on lips. Looks like the color of my lips only better. Quite pigmented and it glides like a dream. It gives a shimmery and pretty lips. I really like the shade of coral for summer and this is just a perfect timing.

Overall I really like Clarins Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick a lot but I don’t think it’ll be a repeat buy for me. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it but not love love. I prefer lipstick which is more opaque in formula most of the time. I wouldn’t suggest this product solely as a lipstick but definitely recommend it as a lip gloss.

Pride+Prejudice+ZOMBIES By Bh Cosmetics

 

Hey guys!

Have you watched the comedy horror film “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies”? The horror film is based on the 2009 novel where “in the 19th century, a mysterious plague turns the English countryside into a war zone. If you haven’t, you can watch it on Netflix.

I was very excited when they first launched the Bh Cosmetics Pride & Prejudice & Zombies makeup collections. 

Fall in love and fight with zombies killers from Bh Cosmetics! Continue to read on …

Here are the ingredients on the back of the packaging. Oh yes, can you spot the bunny? That’s the cruelty free logo where you know the brand do not tested their products on animals.

You get twelve beautifully pigmented eyeshadows, a highlighter and two blushes from this palette. There are a mixed of matte and shimmery shadows.

I love the interior as much as the exterior. It’s all matte black with glossy black motifs and a quote from the movie/book printed in gold under the mirror. I find the design to be quite elegant.

“I shall never relinquish my sword for a ring”

– Elizabeth Bennet

These eyeshadows are clearly separated into two parts. The top row being warm tones while the bottom being cooler tones. There are four mattes and eight shimmer in this palette.

I went to divide these shadows to three quads as shown below:

Swatches you see here are made without primers with single swipes. Each are beautifully pigmented. If I have to choose the lowest pigmentation among all the rest, I’ll say the 1st shades on the top and bottom rows.

Oops!!! When I was editing I then realized that I was actually missing one color swatch which was the dark brown (second from your right) not shown in the photo.

Notice here, the pigmentation on the black (the last shadow on your right) just blew me off. Seriously super black!

I also love the highlighter and the blushes. So pretty and nicely pigmented.

Good job, BH Cosmetics, you’ve nailed it again! I love everything about this palette!

Have you picked this palette yet? If not, quickly go and get the BH Cosmetics Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Makeup Collection now for a limited time only. This is still a good deal for just US$ 12.50 so I would tell you not to miss it out!

I really enjoy this palette. I can’t wait to get my order for the lip gloss. Don’t forget to check back to read more on the lip gloss collection review coming up next.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you again on the next one. Bye!

Sharon xoxo
