Coral Encore - L'Oreal Colour Extraordinaire Lip Color

I briefly rambled about these L'Oreal Colour Exraordinaire Lip Colors in my spy cam post. These are non-sticky liquid lip colors (lip gloss?) with (classical!) music related names, which appeared to be slapped on randomly. I mean, what the heck is orange tempo/pink tremolo?

At the very least, it still better than that Paul & Joe Symphony collection a few seasons back, which includes cardboard eyeshadow adorned by...Random print out of piano score.
The product itself is not as bitch-worthy (a good thing). The package is a plastic golden tube (already chipped) with with swatch board that's close to the real thing. The wand is a soft, cushy one that reminds me of a platypus and I adore the juicy peach scent.
L'Oreal (Glossy Stain) Coral Tattoo, Coral Encore, Essence Candy Coral (which looks pinker on my arm but warmer on my lips) and Revlon Continuous Coral Mineral Lip Gloss (I love that stuff so I am not tossing until it rots/gets finished, whichever happens first). The L'Oreal Colour Extraordinaire feels almost a little fluffy and mouse-like on the lips, but that could just be the big and absorbing applicator.

 L'Oreal Colour Extraordinaire Coral Encore pulls much pinker once it's on the lips (I have too many orange coral anyway) and the light, watery glossy formula wear very comfortably. The silver shimmer is small and not obnoxious (I can do without it) and the color have medium opacity yet it still have that milky quality that makes the color just floats on top. I prefer something to blend in seamlessly.

Overall: I like the color (but do keep in mind that it takes a horrible formulation for me to not like a coral)enough to keep it. At the same time, I am really glad that I didn't impulse purchase other colors in the range (Rose Symphony almost went home with me, before I realized that it comes with shimmer). The medium-pigment watery gloss formula isn't anything new and the color range is alright, nothing screams "buy me" like the kitchenware at Muji.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow - Leather and Nude

 So...Another overdue review for some Maybelline Color Tattoo shadow (Wait, I still have some limited ones from summer 2013 that I never touched). You all know I love them: The colors are wearable and interesting, lasting power is great and almost every shade can pull a fantastic one-man show.
Nude Compliment (from the Dare to Go Nude collection of Spring 2014) is a metallic taupe that's somewhat gold so it works at a both a lid color and as a brightening allover wash.
Sleek & Spice (also from Dare to Go Nude) is a deeper brown taupe. Not as metallic but great for crease (which I don't have).
Sleek & Spice, Nude Compliment and the famed Bad to Bronze. Bad to the bronze is actually the prettiest of the three, as it's rich and metallic (while the other two just look bland after blending).
Creamy Beige (Color Tattoo Leather Collection - Release summer 2014) is a deep beige taupe with soft golden shimmer. This one is particularly creamy and easy to blend and it looks much more brownish on the skin. When used on the lid and blended upward, this screams middle-age-Asian-American-coorporate-lady.
Vintage Plum is the kind of shade I go crazy for - Murky, purply and a bit taupe (like Berroco Flikr Yarn in Piotr) and it really did drive me crazy: Being blotchy, thin and flaky all at once.
So, tough at taupe totally looks gray on me...So, some quick run down of other color without close ups(I have them, they are just in my laptop, that crashed 2 months ago). Moss Green was from Fall 2012 (Yeah...), the rich olive green swatches nicely but blended to be a little sheer. Pure Nude is a warm white beige that works as a base and as a lid brightener.
Gold shimmer and Bold Gold both have their individual reviews, somewhere...If Linkwithin works they would show up below...
