In the lip department, the MAC Tartan Tale collection includes some nice lip trio and several lip kits that come in their own tartan bags.

Sue Devitt Lip Pencil and Gloss

Sue Devitt is one of those cosmetic companies that can get overlooked, but shouldn’t. The company always has quality items and their lip products are no exception. I recently gave a Sue Devitt Lip Intensifier Pencil in Kirakira and a Sue Devitt Microquatic Lip Enhancing Gloss iconin Telina a try.

The lip pencil is rather neat and unique. It is thicker than standard pencils, yet not as thick as a lip crayon. It also is on the soft side, but not so soft that lining is difficult. The result is that you can line well with it, but also fill in well with it. The shade is also a good neutral that would wear well across multiple skin shades. Since I like to fill in with liner before putting on other lip products, this one has quickly become a regularly used product for me.

The Sue Devitt gloss is also quite nice. It wears sheer, but is still pretty well pigmented. It is not at all sticky and has just a hint of shimmer to it. Mostly it is all shine. The gloss has a brush applicator. I noticed that the shade Telina on the site and in product photos looks rather Fuchsia, when it actually is a nice light pink. So, I grabbed it and the pencil and made swatches. Those are below.

MAC Too Fabulous Collection. New CremeSheen Lip Glass!

The Mac Cosmetics Too Fabulous limited edition collection has some great new shades of MAC CremeSheen Glass .  If you haven’t tried CremeSheen, you should! This highly pigmented gloss wears wonderfully and, unlike some of MAC’s regular lipglasses, it isn’t particularly sticky.  icon


The line also includes some great limited edition MAC Lip Pencils. These are creamy smooth and come in a nice variety of shades.
