Helena Rubinstein Stellars Showlights Lipstick

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 15 - 2009

Hello my pretty!

I discovered her hiding under a pile of soaps at my local T.K. Maxx… let me introduce you to “Bubble Pink” as we shall call her from now on.

Seriously, have you ever seen a more outrageously girly lipstick in your life?

I know… that’s almost indecent.  Glitter bomb on a stick.  A pink stick.

This really shouldn’t work for anyone over the age of 7.  And it definitely shouldn’t work for a lady knocking on the door of 30 (by ‘knocking’ I mean ‘ungracefully sprinting in the opposite direction of’).

So does it work?

Ohhhhh yes.

The topmost layer of glitter is an overspray… after the first application it’s a lot more subtle as you can see above.  The pink is a beautiful soft bubblegum pink which is neither too warm, nor too cool.  The shimmer (whilst apparent) doesn’t overpower nor look frosty.  It’s just ‘glitters’.

I was most taken aback by the texture… yes, there’s a teeny bit of gritiness… but nothing compared to what I expected considering how packed full of sparkle it is.  I find it actually quite moisturising and my teeth aren’t set on edge every time I press my lips together.

Whilst wearing this, be sure to kiss lots of people for whom glitter prints would be highly inappropriate.

I want to be buried wearing this lipstick.

And if you think it’s too shimmery for me… I can’t hear you *la la la laalalala*.

    Lovely suits u so well. Xx

  2. Shela says:

    I agree. This shade looks great on you!
    I’m 19 and shimmery glosses often make me look a little juvenile but this post makes me want to try out those shimmers that are buried under the drawer again.

  3. Get Lippie says:

    I think that’s the loveliest shade on you, suits you down to a tee. I wish it was easier to find Helena Rubenstein over here.

  4. Daisy says:

    This is the most divine looking lipstick I have ever seen! I just want it to put in my window so I can watch it glitter in the light!

  10. GoldenTouch says:

    Gorgeous!! So princessley!

    I’ve given you an award at my blog (post scheduled for tomorrow!) xxx

  11. Suka & Spice says:

    this is amazing! i can’t believe you found it at tk maxx too! it looks really beautiful on you–and in the tube..wow, almost untouchable 🙂

  12. Rhamnousia says:

    Firstly, I thought that the close up shot was of your nail.

    Secondly, I LOVE the amount of sparkle in it

    Thirdly, LOVING how great your lashes are looking.

    I saw how to look good naked on tv today and they used Shu eyelash curlers on the model and they really worked so I’m considering buying a pair.

  13. Rhamnousia says:

    Oh and I forgot to add this, it looks like you’ve got a grill in the lip swatch photo..ballin’!

  14. priscyore says:

    looks lovely on you, very pretty

  15. Lizzard says:

    LOVE IT! and you’re totally right – first impression: glitter bomb on a stick but it truly is a beauty 🙂

  16. kelliegonzo says:

    i don’t think i could love this more, but then i read your description of it and i do. i love it more. 🙂

  17. TK Maxx in the UK!! I must go there!! Thanks for the tip…that lippie looks FANTASTIC on you.

    And, I always love your incredible lashes!

  18. Viktoria says:

    I’d definitely compare that lipstick to the Shiseido Shimmering Lipstick in SL 14. You can’t see that much glitter in the tube but it looks the same on my lips.
    😉

  19. @makeupdive – thank u!

  20. @Shela – Thanks! Definitely dig out the sparkles, you’ll regret not wearing them when you hit 40 😉

  21. @Daisy – Isn’t it? I picked up another (in red) but it didn’t have that insane amount of glitter on the outside. (Shame!) lol

  22. @Justine – Yes, HR seem to be pulling out of everywhere!! My nearest proper counter is in France 🙁 It’s do-able… but I’ll keep hunting for sources closer to home!

  23. @Lucy B – Super twinkly!

  24. @Michelle – you just made my day my love xxx thank you

  25. @Kim – ta chick, I’m in a bit of a gold/bronzey rut though :S

  26. @GoldenTouch – Thank you!! It is a bit special isn’t it!

  27. @Suka & Spice – I know, I wanna hunt down a backup… If I do, dare me to frame it? 😀

  28. @Rhamnousia – haha, you made me chuckle. No grills here, probably a bit of spit or something… nice.

    Loads of people are commenting on my lashes recently… well when I say loads, I mean… at least 4. Wonder if it’s the Mavala?

  29. @priscyore – thank you so much xx

  30. @Lizzard – When I bought it, it was packaged with an eyeshadow in a security casing so I could actually see what it looked like and I asked the SA if I could have a peek before buying… he wasn’t supposed to (as it was discounted) but let me anyway. I laughed and said that I loved the eyeshadow, but hated this lippie. But that I’d buy it anyway (they came as a pair) and I’d have to find someone I didn’t like to give the lippie to for Xmas..

    Oh, how wrong about it was I?

  31. @KellieGonzo – Haha, too cute! I want more, all lipsticks should look like this.

  32. @Jamilla – Thank you – oooh another lash compliment!! *looks at the Mavala* – You must go to TK Maxx it’s a veritable treasure trove of discounted hard to find goodies!

  33. @Viktoria – oooh thank you!!! I will have to have a google for the Shiseido!

  34. Sylvie says:

    Hey I love this. I have a local TK MAXX and was wondering about how much this cost you? I may have to have a dig around xx
