Seeing RED this Valentine’s Day

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 28 - 2011

Is it just me or are we seeing a bit of a theme emerging? ;)

First up…

Hot.  Hotty Hot Hot.

Blush – Scandalous (£4.29)
Pout Polish – Scandal (£4.29)
NAILED – Geisha’s Seal (£3.89)

Due to be released exclusively to Superdrug on February 14th.

All For Eve and all for a very good cause indeed.

All For Eve have joined forces with London florist OnlyRoses in time for Valentine’s Day.  Above is the “ultimate in red” package.  Priced at £90, it includes a dozen red roses, an award winning lipstick from celebrity make-up artist Daniel Sandler, the Sophy Robson Nail Polish and the clutch bag essential of a Swarovski Crystal Nail File.

Orders are being taken online at allforeve.co.uk and www.only-roses.com from 27th January with 100% of All For Eve’s net profits going directly to The Eve Appeal.

If you haven’t seen or read about this collection 100 times already then you truly are in love and should stop snogging your beau before your lips drop off.  C’mon, the makeup’s this-a-way!

Illamasqua Throb is their nod to the season of lurve and the cheekily-named pieces reflect this.  I picked up the lipstick in Sangers last week and can’t wait to give the true red it’s first outing!

Nail Polish – Load, Scorn, Throb (£13.50)

Lipstick – Sangers (£15.50)

Intense Lipgloss – Succubus (£13.00)

.

Any of those take your fancy?  They’re less maintenance than a fella!

  1. I am in love with the Sleek items. I love red blush and red lips! I’m definitely going to ask The Boy to haul those for me while I’m away.

    I’ve not tried All For Eve but ouchies at that £90 price tag!

    Re Sleek… red blush? How do you wear that and not look like the creepy clown from It? Am I missing some beauty secret here?

    jesus christ on a red motorbike, how DO you wear that blush???
    Oh and makeup brands giving iffy 5% and 10% of their sales to some good cause? THIS is how you do charity. Kudos to All for Eve for giving 100% of the profits from this campaign!

    It should be noted that the Sleek Valentine’s collection is limited edition – very limited.

    I saw the Sleek collection out in my Superdrug, so it’s already launched. ;) I only tested the Pout Polish, it’s VERY pigmented and so is the blush, but that’s something I wouldn’t use for sure.

    I wouldn’t get away with Sleek’s red blush as I’m super fair, but I’m sure darker skinned folk might do better with it than I.

    I will have to get the Pout Polish. I love Pout Polish, so very excited that there’ll be a red one.

    Hmmm I like red, but feel that to pull off a superb red lip look, one needs perfect skin – no check, and be able to do the flicky eyeliner thingy – no check. So am disadvantaged from the start. Am off to sulk, but on the bright side have a new bridge camera to have a play with! Jan x

    I’ve just seen the Sleek stuff in Superdrug on the way home from work. Not sure how to wear red blusher without looking like coco the clown. Hmmm I’ll have to ask Kenneth Soh – he is bound to know… *mooches off to Twitter*

    I want the pout polish and nail polish from Sleek. I guess red is the colour right now. I don’t think it suits me though xoxox

    I saw the Sleek collection in Superdrug… the pout polish is lovely but I’m not a big fan of the scent so I passed. I did however pick up the gloss and lipstick from the Illasmasqua and both are absolutely gorgeous with amazing staying power. xxx

    Maybe I will break out of my comfort zone and try a red this Valentine’s Day. On the lips though, no way on the cheeks. They are red enough!

    I swatched the Sleek blush and as lovely as it looks, I don’t get how you would wear it. It’s VERY bright! xx

    The sleek blush looks scary!! I won’t be buying anything red though, my cheeks are already rosy enough. I start to look clownish if I use true reds :(

    I got the Sleek blush and love it so much! Hot pinks and reds seem to do it for me (Mac’s Blooming Cheek, anyone?). It’s necessary to use a very light hand and blend well but I achieve a really nice flush, as if I’ve just exercised.

    It’s rare to see blushes so intense so I was really excited :D. Seems like I’m one of the few who can get away with wearing it, lol.
