.@Zara has launched a #lipstick line

Cosmetically speaking, there is nothing that excites me as much as lipstick.  If any makeup item adds pow! to your look, it’s lipstick.

Now fast fashion retailer Zara is launching a range of matte lipsticks in 12 shades and liquid lipsticks in eight shades.

The line launched on zara.com on December 5.

Cosmo UK says:

The brand is calling this their “initial launch”, which we’re hoping means there is plenty more to come.

So do I: namely creme and satin lipsticks.

Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Balm Trio

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

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:
