Weekend Wonderment with Lovely Violet

Happy Friday everyone!  
This weekend I am going to make time for myself, beauty-wise, to get ready for summer! I hope you take some time for yourself too.  To help us do so, we have the honor of having a quick make-up tip and review from the beauty blog Lovely Violet created by Irene (from Greece, how cool is that?!).  She is a fabulous mommy of three who has a knack for knowing what's hot when it comes to beauty products.   She always gives insightful reviews and delightful tutorials on the products she uses.  Among her many talents she is also quite good at being a "blogger friend".  She is sincere and cares about her readers.  The more you get to know her the more you love her.  Hop on over to see what she has in store for you this week.  Here's what Irene has for us this weekend:

Favorite lip combo of the week!
Hi lovelies!  How is it going?  First of all I want to thank with all my heart "its simple love" for asking me to do a guest post on her blog!  Thank you sooo much hun you are soo sweet!

Lately, I find myself enjoying peach & coral colors in make up and on nails, eyes, lips . . . well everywhere! It's summer and every site/blog you  go to has reference on this color as summers hot trend! I Have not tried this color before to tell the truth.  I'm more of a pink girl!



I had this lipstick in my collection for long time and no it isn't mac, it's Avon.  Its called "Sun kissed Ginger".  My last purchase, just to give it a shot, was an Oriflame gloss booster in "Peach Melba". I decided to combine them as the colors matched!
So you see, they are not some "raving brands" but when I find a good product, I think it's worth mentioning.  The lipstick has a good pigmentation and leaves a light colour on the lips. The gloss is a little sticky, although not as much as the Gosh on stage. But I love sticky glosses because they stay put for a good amount of time, it boosts the lips!  When you put them together are so lovely.  So, do you like it?
There's a light peachy color on your lips plus you feel the added moisture of the gloss for a long time! So although I tend to change favorites every week this one is my favorite combo for now!  Hope you enjoy this post and you all doing well!!!

Dont forget to keep smiling!!!

I'm an eye make up kinda girl, and as a result I shy away from lipsticks/glosses because I'm always afraid I look weird. I absolutely love this colour combination though. It's the perfect netural pink!

Romany said...

I must say I'm a big fan of pink shades, as far as lip colour goes. Red is still growing on me, but pink is always good for a more natural (kissable) look.
Is that Marilyn? Sigh...she's so wonderful.

I can't even begin to share my Avon addiction. It began as just trying to help out my friend who just started selling it -- did you see that there's a $2 sale on all lipglosses??! Okay, maybe not all -- I haven't checked out details bc I so don't need more lip goodies. Except it's $2!! A-hem. Love this look :) Hope the weekend of beauty went well :)!

Lisette said...

aw thank you so much =) You absolutely deserve the award too <3

Micaela said...
