Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Cabo Coral 21 + Melliesh 05

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge "Cabo Coral" ($27 CAD)
Again, LOVING coral! This is such a convenient product because it can be used for the cheeks as well as lips. I apply it on the cheeks as a base color though and use a powder blush on top. For the lips I use my Shu Uemura lip brush to apply it and for the cheeks I use the Lise Watier concealer brush for application. In comparison to the MAC cremeblend blush, it is a lot creamier and that's why it's a lip product as well. This will be awesome for travelling :)

I got the Fiberwig mascara even though I mentioned in an earlier post that it drags down my lashes. It's because I got an electric eyelash curler now so I thought it would work well for curling the lashes upward rather than using a normal curler. This mascara claims to be a better formula but it actually doesn't really seem like it... After I use the electric curler, the result is not as good as I expected. The lashes kind of clump together and don't look as long as they should be...! Maybe I haven't grasped the right way to use it so I will keep trying XD

Melliesh lipgloss 05
It's quite opaque but not as much as the MAC Kissable Lipcolor. It doesn't last as long as the MAC one either. I guess it's because the MAC kissable lipcolor is not supposed to be a lipgloss so the nature of the products are different. When I look at the two tubes it looks like the MAC one contains more product but actually they both contain 5g. I'd apply the Melliesh lipgloss on its own because it's opaque enough. However, I wouldn't purchase the product again because it is quite sticky like a normal lipgloss and its lasting power isn't that good. I would prefer MAC kissable lip color much more than Melliesh lipgloss, but too bad the kissable lip color line doesn't carry that many colors that I like.
