I’ve been in a wedding state of mind lately. One of my sons was married last April, my niece was married in October, a good friend’s daughter’s wedding is in June, and my oldest son is engaged to be married in September. With another wedding on our horizon, I am already thinking about my future daughter in law’s wedding makeup! Clinique has done something that’s a lot of fun, creating a collection of four lipstick colors exclusively for the bride, and the collection is appropriately called Kiss the Bride.. They are sold exclusively online at Clinique.com for $16.00 a piece. Also included in this bridal collection is the perfect compact for that special day when you need to retouch your lipstick after all of that kissing, eating drinking, toasting and (how can we forget) picture taking!
Beware of lipsticks whose formulations are so long lasting they dry out your lips, and be wary of lip color tones that make your teeth appear yellow in contrast to your beautiful white wedding gown. Clinique’s Long Lasting Formula is extremely hydrating, and it has staying power. It provides moderate coverage, and it “won’t feather, creep, stain or dry out.” It has a creamy texture and it feels smooth, satiny, and creamy on your lips.It gives your lips a beautiful sheen. One coat will give you a sheer look. The color builds easily for a more opaque look. I suggest that you use a lip liner to fill in your lips first, and then apply your color. This will give you the insurance you need so that your lipstick won’t wear off. Blot your lips on a tissue, and then add another coat of color. This will also help the lipstick wear longer. The colors are Will You?, I Do, Just Married, and
I Do is perfect for the big day. It is a sophisticated Berry- Red. It has a touch of silver shimmer running through it. It is not harsh, and the best part is the Berry color will make your teeth look really white. White teeth and a white wedding gown are a perfect combination.
Just Married is perfect for your big exit. After you leave the wedding celebration and you’re in the car waving goodbye to your guests, the cans are dragging and clanging behind the car, and ‘just married’ is painted on your rear view window. It is the boldest of the four lipsticks. It is a warm deep pink with a soft dewy shimmer.
These lipsticks are classics. They make a great gift for the bride to be. They run the gambit, beginning when he pops the question and ending after you say I do and go on the honeymoon. The four shades are elegant. Whether you are a bride or you’re just wanting a lipstick with a soft color wash, they are really beautiful, and great to have in any collection. Glowing is major this year, and these lipsticks are exactly what you need for creating that dewy natural- looking glow. The bridal collection offers a lip for every occasion.
The collection also offers a gorgeous keepsake compact with pressed translucent powder which is great for touch ups. It comes in a beautiful light grey velvet pouch which holds the compact on one side, and the brush for the powder on the other. It is designed to go with the lipstick. It really does complete the set.
To all the brides out there …Congratulations on your impending weddings! Your weddings will be wonderful and your honeymoons will be great!
I want to dedicate this post to my amazing, kind-hearted, beautiful daughter-in-law to be! I am the proudest and luckiest mother to have you for my daughter. I Love You Dana!
