Although this was yet another Mineralize Collection, I didn’t get much, aside from these 3 items. I thought I should cool it (see what I did there? Apres Chic… cool it… yeah, I’m easily amused) with the hoarding of mineralize products but quite frankly I kinda’ regret not getting a few of those gorgeous duochrome-y eyeshadows that came out in the Apres Chic Collection.

Apres Chic Lipstick (pinky brick red, cremesheen finish) I was expecting this to be as dark as the lipstick in the promo ad (first photo) but Apres Chic is actually quite a few shades lighter. On me it’s still very much a red but with a glossy finish, which is precisely why I love cremesheen lipsticks. It gives a sort of juicy look to the lips.

I decided to pick up 2 out of the 5 Pro Longwear Eyeliners in the shades Black Ice (rich black) and Mountain Air (vibrant teal) I gotta be honest, I just wanted to try out the Pro Longwear Eyeliners, especially after seeing how the Pro Longwear Bronzers performed so excellently. I got a sensible black because that’s actually one of the very few shades that I’m always running out of, and a gorgeous teal because as we’ve already established, I’m very attracted to teal eyeliners.

Here are swatches of all of them (First Row: Apres Chic Lipstick, Second Row: Mountain Air and Black Ice Pro Longwear Eyeliners, Last Row: Hi-def Cyan Chromographic Pencil) I’ve swatched Mountain Air above Hi-Def Cyan in the last photo so you can compare them to each other.
