Alright I ESP’d you today! I’m guessing you’re going to say “here she goes again, another day, another post in the life of a lipstick-obssessed woman. Well blame me not, even the mailman is no longer surprised being greeted with a ridiculously bright mouth, haha!
Today let me introduce you to Quinn and Jelly Bean from Gorgeous Cosmetics. Retailing for $25 each (0.14 oz), Gorgeous lipsticks fit the brand name to a T. They are downright gorgeous my honey bees! Hautelook featured these lippies not too long ago and I believe I paid half the price.
Jelly Bean reminds me of Milani Violet Volt, it’s magenta purple with semi-mettalic finish. It is opaque in two passes with staying power of at least four hours. It’s quite hydrating so applying a lip balm underneath can be skipped.
Quinn is luminous bright orange, if it doesn’t scream summer to you then I don’t know what is. It’s also opaque in two passes with commendable wear time similar to Jelly Bean.
Here are side-by-side swatches of Jelly Bean and Quinn….
Like I said in my prior posts, the easiest way to update your look for spring and summer is to rock bright puckers like a true diva. Skip heavy foundation, curl your lashes and paint your lips vibrant.
Going back to the mailman, do you treat yours like a good neighbor? We do! My mother in law gives her mailman cold soda everyday. During holidays, either me or hub hands our mailman something. It’s nothing grand but it’s the little thought that counts. After all, he makes sure every package is delivered in mint condition whether it’s addressed to my hub or some woman under the guise of Kath TheFabZilla….
