Orange Lipstick: A Trend That Needs To Go

I noticed that orange lipstick was very prominent on the runway and I tweeted recently about it asking whether or not it was a ‘yeah’ or ‘nay’. Frankly, I think it is hideous. This has been popular since 2012 and I am not impressed.

The “Girls in the Beauty Department” at Glamour.com are ga-ga over it and other predictions are that orange hued lipsticks will be trendy until spring 2014.

Clarins’ Crystal Lip Balms – The Second Time Around

I have to admit, I was attracted to their beauty, so much so that I’m not sure I want to disturb that beauty by using them. But seriously, Clarins’ limited-edition Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms are an innovative and attractive take on lip tints. The tinted outer layer is a crystal clear soothing balm that surrounds a full-coverage lip stick. Together they provide spectacular shine and intense color that is completely adjustable.

Crystal Rose, Crystal Mandarin, Crystal Berry, and Crystal Gold Plum

 

Available in four colors—Crystal Rose, a pretty dark pink; Crystal Mandarin, a punchy coral; Crystal Berry, a deep garnet; and Crystal Gold Plum, a mauve wine, the seal of approval was solidified when it was released last summer as part of the Enchanted Summer Collection, so perhaps Clarins will make it a permanent member of the family.
