Ipsy November 2014 Sneak Peek #2! Let's talk about LIPS!

Ipsy Sneak Peek #2 makes me happy.  Why? Because I am a lipstick junkie.  Give me all the lipsticks, glosses, stains (okay, not all the stains, just some of them) and anything in between (hello, L'Oreal Colour Riche is my new favorite thing!).

Now, I admit I'm a little happy to see that the glitter is kept to a minimum in this next spoiler.  Glitter is all fine and dandy but it's just not really for me.  Maybe it's my age?  I know, I know, they say you're only as old as you feel.  Well, I feel twenty but I still don't feel glitter. :D

Here's your second Ipsy spoiler for the month:

J.Cat Wonder Lip Paint in Red Potion-For invincible color and impeccable wear, the Wonder Lip Paint serves justice! With the twofold blend of endurance and delivery of intense pigmentation, this will become your heroin of lip colors.  Check that link and scroll down to see the Red Potion color on lips.  Uh... It's glorious!

Nicole by Opi- I can't see it well enough but I'm guessing Shaved Nice.  Glittery and frosty at the same time.

ck ONE Color High Shine Lip Gloss- I'm thinking this may be the "Tender" color.  Not positive because there's not a lot of information on this particular formula.

Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure-Created with a truly moisturizing, luxury, non-sticky formula. This neutral-rose, yet glamorous shade provides the perfect glisten for any lip look and complements any skin tone! Can be worn alone or in combination with other Starlooks lip products for a truly customizable finish.

Love & Being by Forever 21 in Fuschia-This Love & Beauty lipstick gives your lips the perfect matte finish and keep lips nourished all day.

L.A. Colors Chunky Lip Pencil-  My guess is Wine but it could be Lilac. Soft, creamy formula glides on smooth and moisturizes delicate lips while delivering gorgeous intense color. The perfect combination of a lipstick and lipgloss in a convenient retractable pencil- just twist and apply! All vanilla scented shades give lips a burst of color, from subtle nudes to bold brights.

Wet & Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Color- My guess is Lady and the Vamp.  All NEW lip balm stains glide on smoothly while conditioning the lips. Enriched with Acai Palm Oil, this amazing formula forms a protective shield on the lips to prevent feathering. Complete with continuous moisture, the formula leaves the lips with a unique minty, cooling sensation.

Lucky for me, I think I'd love any of these colors!  I think it's kinda strange that there is one lonely polish in this mix but whatever!  Silver sparkles works for the holidays if I do get it.

If you'd like to sign up for Ipsy, you can do that right here!  It's $10 a month and there is a waiting list so signing up now will get you on it as soon as possible.  There's also a chance you can get off early by sharing an Ipsy post on Facebook (I deleted mine afterwards).  They won't charge you until you're off the list which is good.

What do you think?  Happy that nothing is blood red?! I am!

*referral links were used in this post


  1. Or "Jungle Red"? If you don't know that reference, read the book or better yet see the movie "The Women" which is one of the funniest ever made.

    1. I haven't thought of that in AGES!! I'm assuming you're referencing the old black and white? And yes, definitely no jungle red necessary for me! Hah! I didn't realize it was from a book! I just love old movies (and movie stars).

    2. Yes, and it's so classic because almost every top movie actress of the day is in that film. Not Bette Davis, of course; she was too distinctive to do ensemble roles. But at least 6 or 7 names you would know, being a film buff. I adore old movies too! I will gladly pass up "50 Shades of Gray" to see "Casablana" on the big screen! To me "50" almost seems like voyeuristic soft porn compared to these great old classics with subtle illusions to sex, and real romance.

      Claire Boothe Luce, the authoress of the book, was a famous woman in her own right. I read her biography years ago. Feminism did not start in 1960, there were plenty of powerful women before, and they were ladies as well. Guess I'm old-fashioned!

      If you haven't seen it, another great film is "Now Voyager" with Paul Henreid and Bette Davis. ("Why ask for the moon when we already have the stars.") The title is taken from the poem by Tennyson, "Now, voyager, sail forth, to seek and find..." Henreid of course was the husband of Ingrid Bergman in "Casablanca," as well as starring in one of the lesser-known "Of Human Bondage" films, the most famous with Leslie Howard ("Ashley Wilkes" GWTW) and Bette Davis who was beyond brilliant.

      This was greatness! Those days are gone. I guess I should start my own film blog rather than writing my opinions all over your beauty blog!!!
