Oooh! It’s orange!

Hello beauties!

Today I would like to talk you about two lipsticks, both in very summer shades, that I loved and (over)used during the past 4 months and I keep wearing every now and then.
Right: Korres 45 Coral
Left: MUA 16 Nectar

Allow me to start with the MUA Lipstick. Shade 16 is called Nectar and is a bright coral. And when I say coral, I mean the orange and peach side of the shade rather than the pink one. 

Hmmm…can you tell the difference with nude lips?
The formula is good, considering the price. It glides easily on lips and feels light. It is very moisturizing, almost like a balm. The pigmentation and the lasting aren’t good; it looks sheer and lasts less than an hour on my lips. It has a slightly glossy finish which gives a fresh touch on my look. I am in love with its scent; it reminds me the vanilla & cinnamon cookies! Yummy!
For an £1 product, it is ok but don’t expect miracles. A good tinted balm could do the same work.

The second lipstick is the KORRES Mango Butter Lipstick in 45 Coral. It is a bright coral-orange, semi-sheer and glossy lipstick.

It is lightweight and very moisturizing. Till here, you may notice a lot in common with the previous lipstick (color, characteristics…),  but this one offers a better pigmentation and lasting. Plus, it has a SPF 10 which I found important during summer months, especially if you live in a sunny country like mine. It has a very discrete scent that smells like cherry.
This is the first Korres Lipstick I have ever tried and I am convinced to try more shades.

This or That…?

As you can easily notice, these two lipsticks could be dupes, don’t you think? I prefer the Korres one. It does cost more, but I love the formula and the long lasting.

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Do you like Korres and MUA products?


September 2011 Loves

Here it is: my monthly favourites list! All the products I loved and used the most last month. It doesn’t mean I bought them last month or that I only used them then, but these are the ones I used more than any other products.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
In fact, that’s an all year love. I just adore this eye shadow primer. Since I have tried it I can’t change it with another eye shadow base. Absolutely on my must-have list!!!

Korres Nail Colour 06 Pastel Rose
In this period I don’t want coral nails or ”summery” colours nor dark nails. So, this pastel is ideal for me. Elegant and chic, lasts enough for not being worried to have my nails done every two days… Oooh! If you want to read my review, it’s right HERE.

Layla Cosmetics SOS Colour and Shine Nail Polish
I am not a nail polish addict and I didn’t use a special top coat since last year. This one is amazing! It keeps my nail polish perfect for more that a week!!!I will review it as soon as possible.

Essence Maximum Definition volume Mascara
I finished this little love so I am not going to use this on October. I didn;t expected much from this mascara that costed me less than 3€. But it was amazing!!!Long and well separated lashes, volume, and an amazing lasting! What else should a mascara have to become my little love?

Neve Makeup Primavera Eyeshadow
A warm and sweet shade. Even if it is an eyeshadow, you can use it even as a blush. It is one of my first products that I am trying by Neve Makeup, an italian brand of mineral makeup! I will review it as soon as possible, promise!

What were your most used products during September? 

Kisses girls!!!
