Summer Pinks: L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color Rose Symphony

I've been talking about doing this post for so long. While working full-time and attempting to plan a wedding and of course trying to have a life.. I have been taking a bit of a back seat on the blog.

Summer is coming in right now one of the hottest colours out is pink. As a deeper skin woman of color, I feel that I need to be conscious about what pink I wear. Hear me out.. I personally do not want to be walking around with milky Pepto lips because it's not flattering to my skin tone. When When I brought up the idea of doing a pink lip series on Twitter, a lot of women of colour were really happy for me to do it.

This week's summer pink is:
 L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color Rose Symphony ($12.99 CAN)

Formulated with precious micro-oils and rich color pigments, 
Extraordinaire provides the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips.

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipsticks Swatches

Once you get a hold of an amazing high end lipstick- you wonder how you could have used anything else!
This was my first time trying a lipstick from Givenchy. I had no idea what to expect!

Let's start out with the Givenchy Le Rouge ($38.00)  packaging.
The lipstick is encased in a real leather packaging with silver accents.

These lipsticks are semi-matte.
It's the perfect mix of a satin and matte lipstick.
Sooo creamy and moisturizing.

This lipstick-as-accessory delivers intense colors and a semi-mat finish all in one stroke.

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Glosses + Swatches

This Fall, Maybelline launched their Color Sensational High Shine Glosses. There are twelve pigmented shades to fall in love with. I was sent three colors to try out from the line. How gorgeous are these shades! 
Appropriate from the porcelain white to dark ebony. 

They are very buildable! I prefer to swipe them 3 to 4 times to get maximum color payoff. 
From what I can see the line is a mix of creams and shimmers. 

Raspberry Reflection and Captivating Coral are gorgeous creams. Mocha- Amazing is a light shimmer. These are great fall glosses because are very moisturizing. They apply smoothly and are not sticky.
