Oh man, another drool-worthy lip set, this time from Pat McGrath labs:

Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Balm Trio in Nudes

Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Balm Trio in Nudes

L to R:

PASSION FLOWER – a perfect punch of peach
BLOW UP – a wondrous warm beige
SUCCEXY – a mesmerising mid-tone coral

The set costs $95.00. Sold individually, each lip balm costs $38.00.  You may shop this set through the Pat McGrath Labs website (sorry, couldn’t find it on sephora.com).

I love the lip-shaped closure on these lip balms.  Kinda reminds me of this Dali Clutch by Charlotte Olympia:

My makeup weaknesses are neutral tone eyeshadow palettes and lipstick (I must have at least 100 lipsticks). These products are what I bought:

  • ColourPop Crème Lux Lipstick in LA Lady (rosy terracotta) – creme lipstick is a new offering from ColourPop
  • Flesh Fleshy Lips Lipstick in Drool (subdued watermelon) – Fleshy Lips Lipstick is a sheer “your lips but better” lipstick.  To read more about Flesh, visit Revlon to launch Flesh makeup at Ulta.
  • BareMinerals Gen Nude Neutral Eyeshadow Palette – part of BareMinerals’ extensive Gen Nude collection

AeroMinerale spray-on makeup

I first learned of AeroMinerale spray-on makeup through a press release about a tie-in with the Breaking Dawn movie. Over 1000 cans were used on the set! It appeared on Bella’s dressing table!

But what amused (or disgusted) me is that the pink aerosol can was described as “soon-to-be-Iconic.” G-d knows that I think that “iconic” is one of the abused words in fashion and beauty. It sets my teeth on edge. “Soon-to-be-iconic”??

AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation
AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation

Anyway, back to the product. You may apply AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation by spraying it directly on your face. However, I wouldn’t recommend it. It leaves too much deposit. I had to blot with a tissue but even then, the coverage was too thick. Moreover, it stains clothing and gunks up the hair. I prefer spraying AeroMinerale on a dampened wedge makeup sponge and applying it with the sponge, as shown in this video featuring AeroMinerale founder Yolanda Halston:

AeroMinerale also has a spray-on Hydrating Mineral Primer. The primer also leaves too much deposit, so I blot with a tissue after applying it. Even so, it’s fun to use.

AeroMinerale Hydrating Mineral Foundation comes in ten shades, from Ivory to Ebony. Want to know your best shade? Use the AeroMinerale web site’s extensive database of foundation shades for a match.

AeroMinerale is worth a try. A 1.5-oz can sells for $20 at aerominerale.com, but you can buy it for less. I bought mine for $16-17 dollars at CVS. To find even lower prices, use Google Shopping. I found $12 (clearance) at drugstore.com.

Kroma v. Krohma

Kim Kardashian pregnant

MUA Lee Tillett claims that the Kardashians stole her cosmetics line’s name Kroma (without a “h”).  She is suing for $10 million damages.

Meanwhile, Lee’s attorney Elliot Gipson claims Kim – who says she came up with the name [Khroma] herself – was aware via her placement agents TLK Fusion of a 2010 deal to ensure product placement for Kroma on an E! Entertainment show Kim was due to produce.

He said: “On or about May 2010, representatives for Tillett and TLK Fusion were engaged in discussions regarding the possible product placement of the KROMA cosmetics line on the television reality show special ‘The SPINdustry’ that was scheduled to air on E! Entertainment Television following an episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’.”

I don’t put it past Kim to steal the Kroma name.  Remember how the Kardashians appropriated Monica Botkier’s handbag designs for Sears’s Kardashian Kollection?
