Red Carpet Look: Clarins Eyeshadow Palette in Rosewood and Makeup Revolution Rose Gold lipstick in Red Carpet + Golden Sugar 2 Palette
It’s film fest time here in Toronto, something I prepare…
I am definitely a sucker for limited-edition packaging, and the Sephora x Craig & Karl collection ($16 CAD) really hit the mark for me. It’s quirky, it’s fun, and it’s super cute!
“A matte lipstick that lasts up to 10 hours for an incredibly comfortable feel, featuring eccentric, colorful graphics from Craig & Karl. “
But the super cute packaging is just the start. What’s inside is also surprisingly…. amazing.
WEST END SWIRL is an in-your-face neutral red.
This was such a dream to apply. Very pigmented and opaque. It wore well for over 8 hours and was slightly transfer-proof.
L TRAIN JAIN is a bright, citrus-y orange.
This one was a bit patchier and harder to apply, but the color payoff is really nice. At about the 6-hour mark, it started to wear off.
BOLD GLORY is a blue-based fuchsia.
Ths one was also a bit harder to apply but it stayed put for over 6 hours. I love how bold it is.
If you’re looking for vibrant mattes that aren’t drying and stay on for hours, you may want to look into the Sephora x Craig and Karl Lip Last lipsticks. Just make sure you exfoliate and moisturize your lips beforehand!
