Mac Blogger's Obsession Collection Lipglass Caqui And Wet N Wild The Gilded Age Trio Swatches and Reviews

A few days back, I featured a Guerlain Rouge G lipstick that reminded me somewhat of the Mac Blogger's Obsession Collection Lipglass in the color Caqui. I have already blogged about half of the lipglasses in that collection but hadn't finished showing you what the rest look like. Maybe I should start that now.

Caqui was created by a blogger named Lily who runs the website You can read all about what inspired her to create this color on her blog.  Caqui is described as a persimmon orange color with shimmer that is created to be wearable by just about anybody.

This is an indoor shots of me wearing said lipglass:

And some outdoor pictures:

Here's a nice picture of my invisalign on my teeth, lol

Caqui is the lipglass on the left in the following picture, Evolution Revolution is pictured on the right

It was a quick makeup day where I wore Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Trio in The Gilded Age, a limited edition palette. So what the heck, let's cover that trio right here. This is a limited edition palette that came out with the Wet N Wild Summer 2011 Go For The Gold Collection. It featured the trio eyeshadow palette as well as a Color Icon Bronzer. The Color Icon Trios retail for $2.99 USD. These are such a great bargain for such high quality shadows.

Here's some hand swatches and then a light application on the eye.

The shadow trio has a golden color, a light champagne-pinky and a bronzey brown. It totally is such a great trio for summer. I can tell you that if you use this trio, you'll feel like you're at the beach, even if it's beachy summer.

I didn't have time to do much liner beyond what was in the trio as my family was in a hurry to leave the pool and go to dinner. The usual. lol

Here I am doing the bunny nose thing in the light, but it makes a nice show of the sheen of the eyeshadows.

I did happen to use these shadows in reverse order of what is suggested and you can wear them anyway you want. There are no rules in makeup. You can't fail, all you have to do is try. :)

Guerlain Rouge G 41 Gipsy Jewel Lipstick Compact Swatches and Review

When I go on vacation, I am fortunate to be able to visit a Guerlain counter. I have been introduced to their skincare and fell madly in love as it transformed my face. Skincare as good as it's claims. And then I met the lipsticks. When I wear a Guerlain lipstick, I feel that I am wearing absolute perfection. They are so comfortable and yet long wearing at the same time. The lipstick I'm going to tell you about today is one of the Rouge G formula.

Number 41 Gipsy Rouge G Guerlain Jewel lipstick compact could be called my perfect lipstick. The color is the perfect orange coral color. But first, let's talk about the compact. It is a relatively new design, closing by a magnatized closure. It is silver and shiney. Let's oooo and ahhhh for just a moment.

It looks pretty cool. The men in my house are fascinated by the workings of the device. Men have to figure out all the mechanical things, even if it's a lipstick. So while it looks cool on the outside, it's even better when you slide the tube out of the cover. The cover opens into two mirrors! Sheer perfection!!

I wear all colors of lipstick but this particular coral color is perfect for me. I think it's the type of color that any skintone and any age could wear. It has a very faint hint of shimmer that isn't a frost but just provides a juicy wet look when worn. I have a hand swatch of it next to Mac Blogger's Obsession Lipglass Caqui to show the layering potential of these two fabulous items.

But back to Gipsy, how about some lip swatches?

Yeah, it was a case of love at first sight. I purchased this at Nordstrom, but I know you can also purchase at some Dillard's stores, as well as Neiman Marcus. With quality and such an awesome case comes a bit of a price. These retail for $47 in the United States, but if you're asking me, they are worth every penny. Nothing wears quite like a Guerlain lipstick.

On my next trip, if I can get past the lipsticks, I'll have to investigate the eye products. I'm open to suggestions. :)
