Move over Dior, there’s a new lemming in town…

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 13 - 2009

Well alright, just budge up a bit – I’m sure I can make room for both of you in my heart…

Helena Rubinstein Wanted Stellars Lipstick is available in 12 shades, whilst the gloss is available in 6.  The website sucks, so I can’t view the others..  RRP on these is €28 for the lippies and €26 for the gloss.

But now I’ve seen, I’m smitten… the red would be fabulous for Christmas, even if I only looked at it and sighed wistfully.  I’d love a true pink with sparkle too *le grand sigh*

So anyway, not only are these Wanted Stellars flippin’ gorgeous but get this info from Premium Beauty News

The Solev company presents an innovative finishing technology called “sparkling effect” which consists in spreading on the material to decorate, in a dense and perfectly homogeneous way, colored and metallic particles to render a smooth and shiny effect.

This effect is enhanced by applying a transparent covering film, with a high gloss effect to amplify depth and light.

In order to achieve this result, Solev formulates its own special effect varnishes and to apply the particles in a dense and homogeneous way, the company has invented and developed a process (about to be patented).

A new technology implemented on Helena Rubinstein’s latest lipstick, Wanted Stellars.

Yeah, yeah… whatever you had me at “sparkling effect”.

It looks as though my nearest HR counter is in Cherbourg… ok, so as the crow flies that’s not bad… a couple of hours.  Shame about that pesky ENGLISH CHANNEL blocking the way!  Harrumph.

Anything you’re craving at the moment?

    ooooh sooo hawt, and i don’t even care that much for reds!

    I got some of these in duty free for my mum. I think they were a tad cheaper in Turkey. Lipsticks are great vbut the lipglosses can be over frosty looking due to the glitter in some of them. Personally I find I preferred the old packaging of the brand.. The new products have a cheap feel to them. In photod they look great but in real life.. Nooooo

  3. @kelliegonzo – I know!! I love reds but end up mostly just looking at them rather than wearing…

  4. @tali – Nooooooo don’t kill it!!!!

    I have an old style Stellars showlights lippie that blows my mind with it’s sparkles! They’re just a teeny bit too chunky though, so if these are smoother I’m still sold!

    The lipgloss looks lovely, but I’m tricky with glosses and I usually either love them or hate them, so thanks for the warning re these.

    This is ridiculously gorgeous. I love the sparkling effect. For me personally though, I only like creamy or matte red, not frosts…and red gloss, I’m much too messy for. Do they have the sparkling range in other colours besides red?

    i played with these at duty free..and then put them down to get them on the way back out of the country. unfortunately i wasn’t able to get to that exact duty free on the way out, and have thought of them ever since. the display itself was so nice :)

  7. @FrankieBaby – I would love to have strong enough features to carry off the mattes… you have the most exquisite eyebrows and dark hair I think I’ve ever seen… so it’s no wonder you can carry off bold shades without blinking. So jealous x

  8. @Suka&Spice – Ohhhh I want ’em lots!!! *dreams about them*
