Sunday at Deauville with Couleur caramel (LE)
Hello my friend!
“Sunday in Deauville” is the beautiful name of the new Couleur caramel limited edition I tested for the last weeks. :)
As you might know, I am not a huge fan of lipglosses, most of the products I used are sticky and only last for some hours. Nevertheless I decided to try these two colors “desert rose pink” and “pink red” because of the advertised long-lasting and the nourishing effect because of the cold temperatures right now.
So i tried the two jumbo kajal pencils in “Rock” and “root”. They are multifunctional and can be used as kajal pencil, eyeliner or for smokey eyes.
Here are the swatches of all four:
The earthy colors are dull and not too smooth or firm, so it is easy to apply as a good visible eyeliner but so to apply it on a larger area. The cool grey is somehow even a bit bluish.
Both lipglosses are highly pigmented but dissolve almost. This is the main problem I had with both, seconds after I applied them,, they started to run in my lipcreases making me look like I had halloween makeup on after a day in university. :D
I tried to use less gloss but this didn ’ t work either, so I tried it with a lip brush and suddenly it worked and I really like the look!
There is only one small disadvantage: The lighter color loose some of its brightness and looks a lot like the darker color.
Nevertheless I am happy with the glosses because they have a great texture and feel more like a nourishing creme or oil than a standard lipgloss. Especially in winter I prefer this.
Also the long-lasting effect is stunishing, it is hard to wash it away and lasts on my lips for the whole day, even some meals are okay. :)
The jumbo eye pencils are a bit easier to apply, “Rock” looks like this:
I prefer warm colors, so I like to use “root” a bit more. This is how it looks with “desert rose pink” and the lipliner “cherry blossom” by Terra Naturi:
I really like the combination of “root” with the color “Champagne” by Purobio, I applied on the lashline.
This combination looks great with “pink red” and a red lipliner:
How do you like this limited edition by couleur caramel?
Are you a fan of lipglosses or do you prefer lipsticks?
Have a great week,
