This tube packs a lot of plump for your pout for $18.50! Just by looking at the bottle, I can see where the serum looks as if it would have a brightening effect, too — due to the opalescent light-reflecting micro-collagen spheres.
Not only that, but it also tastes good and does not feel tacky nor irritated my lips like some other lip plumpers do, also feeling the need to take them off immediately after application. Some burn, tingle and this one did neither on my lips.

Oh my, how I do love these new waterproof lip colors! They last and last and are reminiscent of L’Oréal’s Infallible collection — as they are meant to stay on until YOU choose to take it off. Almandine which I sampled would not even budge! I see this as a beauty trend as I recently reviewed Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Rouge collection that is very similar in its wearability options. The gloss is applied after one minute and your lipstick comes off on nothing! No smudges or lipstick marks …

The new anti-aging foundation from Sisley, Skinleya, is also a skin enhancing foundation. Launching in September, this new Lift Foundation is my first foray into Sisley’s color cosmetics line.

This particular formula is enriched with extract of cherry blossom and tourmaline microcrystals, as well as …
While most lipsticks we review never cease to amaze us in their quality of ingredients, some of them wow us with their design. Living in New York City, we’re constantly surrounded by some pretty impressive structures, from the Lipstick Building located on Lexington Avenue designed by Philip Johnson to the eco-friendly, almost silvery Hearst Tower. Such inspired architectural poise also translates into the realm of makeup. Here are a few of our iconic lippie favorites inspired by the look and grace of some iconic architectural buildings.
