Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil Review

April 15, 2022

Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil

shown above: white sunnies / hermes pouch 

Hermes launched a new tinted lip oil called the Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil ($55 each) and I hauled all of them sight unseen. I’ve been a really huge fan of their Lipsticks, Rose Hermes Lip Enhancers and the Shiny Lipsticks. As a lover of lip oils I had a feeling I would love these too. You can find these at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Hermes.

The Hermes Lip Oils are scented which I think is super fun! Each one has a different unique scent to match the color. Each scent was made by perfumer Christine Nagel – she’s created a number of beautiful perfumes including one of my favorites Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt.

Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil Review

Full description of each shade and corresponding scent is listed online at Saks and also Hermes. I’ll include what I notice for each one below. They all have a whimsical and sweet spring-like vibe!

  • 01 Beige Sapotille is a sheer beige, this one smells like a sweet candy, almost like lychee
  • 02 Corail Bigarade is a stunning sheer coral, it has a warm sweet caramel orange blend for the scent
  • 03 Rose Pitaya is the perfect bright sheer pink, it smells like the Starbucks Dragonfruit drink to me
  • 04 Rouge Amarelle is a sheer red pink, it scented of sweet cherries
  • 05 Rose Kola is a pretty neutral mauve, it smells like a cola drink!
  • 06 Pourpre Camarine is the most gorgeous sheer purple, this one smells like grape candy

Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil 06 Pourpre Camarine

The Lip Oils have a sheer but noticeable tint on the lips. I love that they have a hydrating comfortable feel. They definitely have an oil-like texture, but one that doesn’t feel like it will slide around or off the lips. I love pretty much everything about the oil from the formula, color, packaging design and clear base so you can see the color! If I had one semi-bad thing to say about it, it would be the sponge tip applicator.

Hermes Hermesistible Infused Lip Care Oil

These oils come with a sponge tip applicator which is decent, but I feel could have a better design. The applicators are not bad and the packaging is not really a deal breaker, but I may have become spoiled by the more innovative designs from brands like YSL, Dior and By Terry. So many other lines have put more thought into the packaging these days. They have better sponge tips, sometimes with a well/gap inside designed to pick up more product for optimal application. With these Hermes Lip Oils I feel like I have to give the wand several good pumps to pick up enough product to apply on the lips.

The benefit of the shape and design of the applicator is that it does allow for precise application around the edges.

I’ve been playing around with the oils for a few days now and really love these. The colors are beautiful and formula feels exceptionally smooth and luxurious on the lips. Plus the added scent is unique and fun. If you’re in the market for a luxury lip oil and are willing to splurge I think you will love these. Every single color is perfect and I think there is enough variation with the colors to make them all worth owning. I do think they’re worth the splurge although the price tag is very steep.

If I had to pick my top three, I’d say my favorites are 02 Corail Bigarade, 03 Rose Pitaya and 05 Rose Kola.

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait Review

March 30, 2022

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait

Chanel launched their new Rouge Allure L’Extrait ($55 each) which is their first refillable lipstick ($40 for the refills). I saw the collection earlier this month in Miami and hauled 6 of the 20 colors in the new launch. The Chanel team also sent a selection of colors so I had a few more bolds to share! They are available now online at

A closer look in one of their beauty boutiques in the Brickell City Center below!


The Rouge Allure L’Extrait is one of the best high-pigment lipsticks I’ve tried. They are ultra creamy, smooth one swipe wonders with a comfortable hydrating feel. Formula adheres nicely to the lips (almost hugs them!) and stays put remarkably well. No bleeding, sliding, creeping!

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait review

These come in a slim black case with the pop up end. They are tiny for the price and since these are refillable the cases aren’t labeled on the bottom. If you have more than one you will have to pop open each lipstick to check the shade. The shade names are in tiny print on the gold tube casing which is hidden once you insert it into the base.

You do need the full case to use the lipstick. There is a click component in the base of the refill portion that allows you to twist it up. Without it you cannot twist up the lipstick.

There are two neutral colors, a few pinks and a wide range of reds, orange shades and bolds. For the red lipstick lover you will really love this launch because they’ve thought of every variation, brightness and undertone of red! For the neutral lip lover (like me) you will still find a couple of nice lighter options. I hope they add more neutrals!

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait swatches

Colors I have:

  • 812 Beige Brut is a perfect flawless beige
  • 814 Beige Imperieux is a medium coral peach
  • 818 Rose Independant is a pretty rose pink
  • 822 Rose Supreme is a medium cool rose
  • 824 Rose Invincible is a deeper rose pink
  • 828 Brun Orgueilleux is a plum brown
  • 832 Rouge Libre is a blue red
  • 862 Brun Affirm is a brown pink red

Below swatches on the lips below! Quick note that most reds look REALLY red on my complexion. Also wearing:

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Review

March 21, 2022

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Review

I’m excited to share a look at the Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipsticks today! I’m late to review these as I picked these up over a month ago. We’ve been traveling so I’m a bit behind on reviews! These are limited-edition colors for spring but they’re still in stock at Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Hermes. They are very steep in price at $72 each but I think the colors and formula are so good, I feel they were worth the splurge for me.

These are translucent lip colors with a glossy finish. The color payoff is exceptional for something that has a translucent finish. They’re pigmented but balmy and glossy with a slight transparent quality to them. The colors were inspired by a garden filled with light and water and I couldn’t have described them better!

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Review

There are three colors:

  • Beige d’Eau is a sheer beige but still shows up as alight peachy beige on my lips
  • Orange Capucine is my new favorite bright coral orange, bright but wearable
  • Rose Nymphea is a gorgeous bright cool pink lilac, surprisingly wearable on my olive complexion even though it’s more cool-toned

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Review

Makeup worn:

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Beige d'Eau

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Orange Capucine

Rouge Hermes Shiny Lipstick Rose Nymphea

Texture is smooth and glossy. They have an almost balm-like feel. The colors are flawless and bring the complexion to life! I love that they’re bright but not too bright. These make for a nice change from my everyday neutrals. If you can splurge I highly recommend these for both color and quality.

Also wanted to share a look at three of my favorite Hermes Nail Enamels ($45 each). These still are harder to find. They keep selling out on multiple sites but will pop back on every now and then. Sometimes Saks will allow you to pre-order online (how I got several of the colors). Some shades also available now at Bloomingdale’s.

Hermes Nail Polish Rose Horizon, Orange Poppy and Rose Incarnat

I’ve been asked if these are “worth the price” and I still don’t think any nail polish is worth $45. I do love the formula, I think the colors are perfect and really flattering. I have no regrets with my splurges.

  • Rose Horizon is the perfect mix of pink and coral
  • Orange Poppy is a bright vibrant orange
  • Rose Incarnat is a bright pink

Formula has great lasting power (no chips or peeling). I can get 7 days of wear without any chips or tip wear although some sunscreens completely ruin my polish (top coat and all) so I don’t always get to wear it for a full week. I’ve had Orange Poppy on my toes for nearly 3 weeks now and it’s held up remarkably well.

Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Refillable Lipstick Review

Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Refillable Lipstick Review

Sisley launched their new Phyto-Rouge Shine Lipsticks ($60, refills are $48) and I have six to share swatches of today. I’m always excited for Sisley newness and I was thrilled to see new spring colors for lips in a shine formula (I’m all about a glossy lip!). The Phyto-Rouge Shine Lipsticks are extremely steep in price at $60 each. They are refillable with the refills being $48 each (still very spendy). I think these are the best shine lipsticks I’ve ever tried.

Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Refillable Lipstick Review

The Phyto-Rouge Shine Lipsticks have medium buildable coverage. I think the color payoff is exceptionally good for a shine lipstick. These feel very comfortable on the lips. They’re like a balm + lipstick + gloss hybrid in one. They glide perfectly on the lips and the texture is perfect: smooth, creamy, not too soft, not too thick, perfectly hydrating. There is a subtle sweet vanilla like scent.

Lips feel smooth and hydrated with these. There is a slight plumping effect with the shine and hydration but it doesn’t feel like a plumping lip product.

Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Refillable Lipstick Review

The Sisley team kindly sent four to review. I purchased two more. The colors are flawless straight out of the tube. I couldn’t ask for more in a shine lipstick formula. Lasting power is pretty good for a shine lipstick. It won’t be super long wearing as it is a glossy finish but it’s a lipstick I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day.

  • 10 Sheer Nude is a sheer light nude pink with a subtle sparkle, coverage is impressive for a nude this light in color (a lot of colors like this are either too pale or too sheer on me, but this one is perfect!)
  • 11 Sheer Blossom is a warm cream pink with a hint of peach
  • 20 Sheer Petal is a perfect pink cream
  • 21 Sheer Rosewood is a pretty rose pink with a slight shimmer
  • 22 Sheer Raspberry is a perfect raspberry pink with a subtle silver shimmer
  • 40 Sheer Cherry is the perfect true cherry red with shimmer

Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine Refillable Lipstick Review

Every single color I tried is perfect. It’s hard to pick a favorite although I love Sheer Blossom and Petal – I love the pink tones! I think I have a good color selection right now although I have been eyeing the Sheer Cocoa and Coral colors. I decided to wait and splurge on some of the new Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lipsticks (review coming soon).

Chanel La Comete for Spring 2022

March 1, 2022

Chanel La Comete Rouge Allure Velvet Review

I have a look at the Chanel La Comete Collection for spring today! Chanel launched eight new shades of the Rouge Allure Velvet ($42) lipsticks and two new Blush Comete ($70) shades, all available now online at

New Rouge Allure Velvet La Comete

Chanel La Comete Rouge Allure Velvet Review

The new Rouge Allure Velvet La Comete lipsticks are beautiful! Most of them far surpassed my expectations. They’re a smooth, weightless luminous matte with a slight hint of shimmer. Pigment is medium but layerable. I like all of them all with the exception of one shade which I found terribly patchy. The colors have a classic vibe, some may feel they’re more fall-winter colors. I do think there are a few that are neutral-enough to wear year round. The bolds are more classic colors I think you can wear for date nights, or if bolds are more your style.

These come packaged in the classic Rouge Allure lipstick case but the ends have an embossed star which is supposed to be the good luck symbol for Gabrielle Chanel.

On the arms/hands the pearlescent quality is more noticeable, but on the lips the shimmer translates into a subtle luminous quality – not really shimmery, but not fully matte either.

  • 108 Terre D’Etoiles is a gorgeous wearable brown pink
  • 118 Bois de Rose Astral is the perfect kind of medium rose pink I’ve been looking for for AGES!
  • 128 Rose Eclatant is an electric warm red
  • 138 Rouge Vie Radiant is a deeper red with cool tones
  • 148 Rouge Cosmique is a classic red
  • 158 Brun Solaire is a red brown
  • 168 Pourpre Etoile is a plum
  • 178 Brun Celeste is a sheer blackened plum with silver sparkle, this is the only one I found patchy

Lip swatches below of each color on bare lips, also wearing:

Blush Comete

Next we have a look at the two Blush Comete Soft Glow Blushes. They have a stripe embossed texture and a star on the surface. It’s not quite an overspray because it takes a few uses and brush swipes before the star design disappears. I really loved the texture and finish of these! On my medium tan skin tone Peche Cosmique is almost a highlighter, it’s pale on my skin and adds a soft diffused pale glow. Corail Etoile is a pink coral with a subtle shimmer to it. Both have a subtle sheen but they aren’t frosty or too shimmery.

Swatches of the whole collection below

Chanel La Comete Collection Review

Chanel La Comete Spring Collection

Bottom line: Excellent quality, beautiful colors, lovely textures. Solid A+ (except for one of the lipsticks). That being said there are lots of new launches coming out, the new Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lipsticks just launched online and I’m excited to try the new formula! Colors look brighter and more spring-summer like to me.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lips

New Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipsticks and Lip Liners

February 27, 2022

New Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipsticks and Lip Liners

Anastasia Beverly Hills launched new Satin Velvet Lipsticks ($23 each) and Lip Pencils ($18 each) and they looked so beautiful on Instagram I couldn’t help but order a bunch to try. It’s been a while since I’ve tried any of her lipsticks since I only remember her launching mattes in the past. This round she has a new Satin Velvet Lipstick formula which is more like a regular lipstick. Her Lip Liners looked promising, and I love the square shape! I hauled 6 of each. Here are my thoughts, swatches and lip looks.

Satin Lipsticks

New Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipsticks

Satin Velvet Lipstick ($23 each) is more like a satin lipstick. It’s not really that velvety to me and I am 100% ok with that. They’re ultra pigmented, smooth, creamy and have great lasting power. (I still like to use a lip primer underneath to smooth/prep the lips like the MAC Prep and Prime Lip.)

Formula is really good and I love the sleek slim no-fuss packaging. Color selection seems pretty good too although with nudes and neutrals it’s always hard to see how it will look on the lips. A few of these were misses for me simply because the color doesn’t work for my skin tone or lip tone.

  • Tease is pale pink peach and looks like washed out death on me, would probably work if I paired it with a liner and gloss (similar to Tom Ford Blush Nude on me which looks great on so many others, but not me)
  • Warm Peach is a light warm peach orange, also a bit pale for me on its own, but if I add a brown liner I can make it owkr
  • Peach Bud is my favorite, it’s the perfect mix of peach and pink
  • Praline is an easy to wear neutral nude on my lips
  • Dusty Rose is a light rose neutral, goes on my lips lighter than what I see in the tube, but if you don’t have pigmented or brown tones in your lip, then this will look more true to tube
  • Taupe Beige is a neutral cool-toned pink beige

Lip Liner

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Liners New

The Lip Liners ($18 each) are your basic everyday lip pencil. I like that they’re not too creamy and not too stiff. They do tug a little but it’s not so matte that it drags. I’m still in the process of testing different combinations but I swatched them on their own below on the lips so you could see the color.

  • Baby Roses is actually a wearable pale peach on me! I was worried it would be too pale, but it works on me!
  • Hazelnut is a cool-toned brown (not my color, but looks pretty in the arm swatch)
  • Deep Taupe is a deeper cool-toned brown
  • Warm Taupe is a warmer taupe brown
  • Sunbaked is an interesting peach, warm but not orange, I love it!
  • Dusty Rose is a deep plum rose brown

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick + Lip Liner Review

Overall I think they’re all worth checking out. After testing what I ordered and looking at other reviews I would have probably skipped the lipsticks in Tease and Warm Peach and opted for the Soft Brown or Rosy Brown instead.

They do appear to be permanent which is nice (even though some of the colors keep selling out). I still have some more lipstick reviews coming soon for the new Sisley Phyto-Rouge Shine, Natasha Denona I Need a Rose, Chanel La Comete and Hermes Shine lipsticks! So stay tuned!

Tom Ford Soleil 2021 Naked Pink Quad + Sunlit Rose Lip Balm

October 12, 2021

Tom Ford Soleil 2021 Naked Pink and Sunlit Rose

Tom Ford launched two new items in the Soleil lineup and I ordered the new Soleil Eye Color Quad in Naked Pink ($89) and Sunlit Rose Lip Balm ($58). I look forward to the Soleil eyeshadow palettes every year as I’m a huge fan of the pretty shimmers for this line. I ordered both from Nordstrom.

Soleil Eyeshadow Quad in Naked Pink

Tom Ford Soleil Naked Pink Eyeshadow Quad

The Soleil Eyeshadow Quad in Naked Pink has a mix of textures unlike the previous year’s First Frost which is all metallic (ie like Honeymoon, Nude Dip, Virgin Orchid etc.). This year’s Naked Pink has a soft shimmery cool pink champagne, a matte soft malted pink, a sparkle topper in a pale rose/mauve glitter and a medium shimmery rose. Pigment is medium soft in this one and on my medium tan skin tone colors look more subdued/natural. Texture is smooth and easy to blend and layer. If you’re looking for super strong pigment this might be too sheer for you. I really like the colors and quality but wish the pigment was a bit stronger/more visible. Still the semi-sheer pigment isn’t a deal breaker for me, I’d rate this a solid B+/A-. It’s one I will wear for the holiday season for a sparkle eye look and I really like it.

Soleil Lip Balm in Sunlit Rose

Tom Ford Soleil Lip Balm in Sunlit Rose

This year’s Soleil Lip Balm in Sunlit Rose also has an overspray on the bullet. Underneath is a soft pink glow. I really love how pretty it is on my arm but on my pigmented lips it looks really pale. Based on what I see on my hand swatch I expected it to look like Spanish Pink but with a glow. I suspect on most of you Sunlit Rose will look more true to tube versus what it looks like on me. I like the texture – it’s smooth and semi-thick, almost like a Tom Ford lipstick but smoother. It works nicely as a layering product with liner or over a lipstick. Not a must-have for me although the packaging and presentation is really pretty.
