Senna Lipglosses from KarlaSugar ♥

OMG you guys!! Regular posting interrupted today because I won a giveaway from the amazing KarlaSugar! If you guys don’t know who she is yet, you need to check out her blog!! She’s probably the best swatcher out there. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves when people on the internet, and especially on the MUA message boards, start bitching about how beauty bloggers are only in it for the free products, aren’t trustworthy, sincere or honest, or how hard it is to start a beauty blog when companies aren’t bombarding you with free products. I think Karla is one of the best examples of how they are completely wrong as well as one of the best beauty resources out there. =)

Anyhow, I was one of the winners of her recent Senna Lip Lacquer Giveaway, and I received my prize package today.

Senna Lip Lacquers in Ginger, Bling Bling, Star Bright, Cosmo

I thought it was super cute that Karla had her DH help divide up the lipglosses when there were preference overlaps. I also think he did an awesome job! (I got Cosmo and Star Bright of the ones I chose.)

Labels Close-up of shimmers.

I’m a terrible, terrible swatcher, compared to Karla, so I’ll just refer you guys over to her blog. As she mentioned, the lipglosses are quite sticky, but I actually like them! And I’m really not even much of a lipgloss girl to begin with! They’re thick and cushy and moisturizing in a comforting sort of way. I guess they remind me of my favorite lip treatment, Physicians Formula Plump Potion (I primarily use this as a peel) except without the weird smell and tingling. If you don’t like getting your hair stuck in your lipgloss though, I would really not recommend these. I have pretty short hair so I don’t mind that much. Plus, they’re SO shiny and sparkly! I haven’t had something this sparkly to play with in a while heehee.

And of course I had to try them on right away. This was today’s original FOTD before SO and I went out for ice cream. (As a side note, the vitamin D3 and Avalon Organics Renewal Serum are working so well at healing up the cystic acne I decided to pull out P&J Tango to wear today. At this rate, I’m hoping the spots on my forehead will be gone within the next two months or so!)

Eyes: MAC Golden Olive, Vintage Gold, Copperized, Kelly Green Pigments, UD Stash; Cheeks: Paul & Joe #10 Tango, Tarina Tarantino Parasol; Lips: Jane Iredale Catherine

And here I’ve added Senna Ginger (to prove to SO that a taupe lipgloss can be quite pretty) with just a touch of Cosmo on top.

The lipgloss does emphasize my liplines quite a bit in pictures but it’s not nearly as noticeable IRL. Am currently super happy with the sparkly bling. :D

Thank you so much KarlaSugar!! :D :D :D

    They’re mostly quite sheer (and even more so on my lips), but very blingy! You have to see Karla’s swatches to appreciate them. =)

I love the combination of muted green and the slightly coral lips <3333333

    & thanks! My skin’s been feeling way better lately. :D

    Congrats on winning! the lipgloss looks very pigmented and the packaging is pretty too :)
    ryc: lol, i don’t know why i don’t have the shopping mood too, maybe just because recently i care more about skincare. hehe…

    Catherine responds:

    Thanks! Yea, Cosmo is surprisingly pigmented and actually shows up by itself on my lips though I think the others are more sheer. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised by the packaging – it feels luxe.

    And hm. I go on skincare binges too… but I think I know what you mean. It takes more time and care to shop for skincare than for other things. How’s your search going?

    She is seriously amazing!

    & ty!! I just wish my stupid acne would go away so I could wear red blushes more! Well… I mean I could but I’m so lazy to conceal every day LOL. The peach and rose ones just don’t bring out the blemishes as much.

    Catherine responds:

    Hahaha, IKR? SO was all like “ewwwww.” But it’s really pretty sheer so it just warms up and blings out a lipcolor kind of.
