Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick review

Chanel has a new lipstick! Get excited!! The new Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection is a hydrating and plumping lipstick line which offers strong pigmentation and shine. Love!

I don’t do fillers, so plumping lipsticks are always a fun way to plump up the lips. Normally, when I try a plumping lipstick, there is a tingling sensation as the lipstick has an ingredient which irritates the lip skin, which in turn, makes the lips plump up. Chanel would never do that to us. There is nothing irritating about this lipstick. That being said, I didn’t really see a plumping effect either. So, there’s that. . .

This lipstick does do something which I love. Chanel’s Rouge Coco Bloom lipsticks offer the pigmentation of a cream lipstick combined with the moisture and shine of their regular rouge coco lipstick collection. This makes the Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection the best of both worlds; pigment and moisture. Love that!

I am a huge fan of Chanel’s various rouge coco lipstick lines. They are always moisturizing, and they offer the right color when I need it. If you are looking for a lightweight lipstick with strong pigmentation, but don’t want to wear a liquid lipstick or a cream lipstick, then this is your new lipstick!

For spring, I purchased three colors, which you can see above. I plan on purchasing lipstick from this collection again in future seasons. The pigmentation combined with the lightweight, moisturizing formula, makes this a great alternative to a cream lipstick. Love!

Dior Pink Sakura similar nail polish colors

Dior nail polish sells out fast! If you love a color, it’s imperative you snap it up right away. Of course, that isn’t always possible, and I get it. I lost track of how many times I have missed out on a beautiful Dior nail polish color simply because it sold out before I could get to it. It’s hard being a nail polish fan!

Thankfully, one of my readers reached out and asked about similar hues for Dior Pink Sakura nail polish; a color from Dior’s spring 2021 beauty collection. Since my original post receives a lot of traffic, I suspect a lot of you have been searching for a similar hue too! So, I looked at my favorite nail polish brands, Dior, Chanel, and Essie, and I found a few similar hues to Dior Pink Sakura. If you missed out on the original, never fear, the similar hues are here!

You might be wondering why I placed this post in my Designer or Deal thread. Well, since Dior is designer, and Essie is a deal, I felt like it fit. I hope you think so too 🙂

Which similar color do you like best? I hope this post helps, and stay tuned! I am un-patiently waiting for Dior’s summer nail polish collection to arrive. As soon as it does I hope to snap it up and share it with you!. Chanel too!

Thanks for stopping by!

ShadeM Beauty liquid lipstick review

ShadeM Beauty liquid lipsticks C/O ShadeM: online here /

ShadeM Beauty is a fabulous company which creates beautiful make-up that can worn by, and enjoyed by, anyone of any shade. Love that!

Created by beauty experts with over seventeen years of experience in the industry, ShadeM Beauty was created with a love for make-up. The founders have mixed-ethnicities, and knew there was a void in the industry with so few beauty brands representing all ethnicities and skin tones; as well as being represented through visual identity and stories.

Liquid Lipstick is perfect for days and occasions when you want your lip color to stay put; without drying out your skin. What I love about ShadeM Beauty is that their liquid lipstick does exactly that; it stays put, offers vibrant color, and doesn’t dry out the lips. Love!

There is a shade for everyone at ShadeM Beauty. Whatever your skin tone, there are many colors which will work with your coloring. Their color offerings also work with any type of personal style. If your style is California Casual like me, there are toned down hues you will love (like me!), and if you enjoy pushing the style envelope, there are bold hues for you too! I love a brand which offers something for everyone.

My skin tone is medium, and my personal style is on the conservative and casual side. I consider my personal style to be California Casual with a touch of glam. For my medium skin tone, 100% of my ancestors came from Italy, so while my skin isn’t as olive as my Mother’s, it still has a Mediterranean tone. My two favorite hues from ShadeM Beauty are Vivid 8 and Desrose 10. Vivid is a fun pink for going out and Desrose is perfect for all my Zoom calls, and my future in-person businesses events.

Speaking of video conference meetings and calls, ShadeM Beauty offers vivid hues which look great on-screen. If you take a lot of video calls, or enjoy filming videos, these liquid lipsticks look amazing on camera as well as in person.

ShadeM Beauty is halal certified, PETA approved-vegan friendly, cruelty-free, caring and giving, made in Italy, and embraces and celebrates cultural diversity and self-expression. You can find the entire collection online here.
