Love FREE SHIPPING and Liquid Lipstick?

Where are my liquid lipstick lovers?

These dropped in Canada this week, and we are so unbelievably excited! There is different lighting in the photos, but the first picture is the most true to shade.

I have two of these already, and they are truly amazing. Reasons why I (and you will) love these enduring lip colours:

1) they are called ENDURING lip colours for a reason… they have awesome staying power 
2) the colours are bomb
3) they are so smooth and glide on easily
4) they dry fairly quickly, resulting in less transfer
5) they literally smell like dessert… no joke
6) we have a 30 day return/exchange policy so you can try completely risk free!
7) leaping bunny certified (cruelty-free)
8) Gluten/paraben/nut/corn/soy free
9) Vegan

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the formula was recently IMPROVED. It is now formulated to last even longer, provide deeper colour deposit, and have less transfer! Take a look below at a screenshot I grabbed from a LIVE video our co-founder did showing off the power of the new formula. This transfer test honestly speaks for itself… the new formula is amazeballs and I am dying to get my hands on it!

 

To sweeten the pot, we have FREE SHIPPING on orders of ANY size through to the end of August. This means you can snag yourself an enduring lip colour by itself without shipping charges. If you’ve had your eye on any other items, this is also your opportunity to tack that on with your ELC to save on the shipping for the entire order!

Died and went to Lip Gloss Heaven

This month a truly amazing thing happened…. the LimeLife by Alcone lip glosses were successfully launched into Canada!! We have been waiting “patiently” since March 5th for these puppies to come to Canada so that we can get our grubby paws on them.

It finally happened. It is glorious.

Naturally, I felt compelled to do a little photo shoot to capture the beauty of these magical little lip glosses. It doesn’t do them justice at all, but you’ll get the idea.

“So Jessica, apart from how pretty they are, why should I buy these glosses?”

I’m so glad you asked!

  • These glosses smell like DESSERT!! I seriously just want to lick the wand when I am applying these glosses.
  • They go on super easily.
  • They are not at all sticky.
  • Last but not least, my favourite thing about these glosses is the high pigmentation.

If you’ve tried our eyeshadows or our foundation, you will be familiar with the heavy pigment in our products. If this line is new to you, chances are you will be blown away by the pigment in these glosses – especially the darker shades. For example, check me out in this photograph. I am honestly BLOWN AWAY.

This is me sporting our signature lip gloss in “Joy”. It looks like I must have something underneath it, right? Well, I swear to you that I do not have a single thing on under that gloss. No lipstick, no liquid lipstick, no lip stain, no lip liner, zilch, nada, NOTHING. This is a testament to how pigmented these glosses truly are.

Catch the recording of me going LIVE on Facebook to swatch the four gloss shades that I got for free with my party rewards. Shades being swatched are Joy, Love, Peace, and Hope.

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup

Anyone that knows me, knows that I like to go all out for holidays. I tend to show up for work dressed for the occasion, and St. Patty’s Day was no exception! I got some laughs and some funny looks, but it was all in good fun.

All products used for this look – with the exception of the green shadows – were LimeLight by Alcone products. As for the green shimmery shadows, those were Mica Bella shadows. I used three different shades to create the eye look, and just one shade of the shadow to create that shimmery green lip color. The lips turned out like a metallic liquid lipstick, and I love how it ended up filling out the look!

How to recreate the look:

I always start by moisturizing and priming my face. I use Must Dew to moisturize, and First Base Primer to prep my face for makeup. Then I go in and apply my foundation, and concealer to highlight. I do my brows next, and clean up around the brows with concealer. Once that step is done, I’m ready to go in with my bronzer, blush, and translucent powder.

Once the face is good to go, I then move to the eyes. I applied all of my shadows with a little spritz of primer on my brushes to maximize the color impact. I used a lighter shade of green to apply it all over my lid and in the center of the lower lash line. Once most of the color was on the lid, I gently blended it upward a bit. Then you take the slightly darker green and apply that with a new brush to the outer corner of the eye, and blend inward about halfway across the lid.

Again once most of the product is where you want it, blend upward slightly and in and around the crease. Next you take a really dark green using a fine crease brush and apply it basically in an outward V where your winged liner goes. Blend that inward a bit, and up and around the crease. You take that shade along the bottom lash line until it meets the other shade you applied earlier, and blend. Lastly, you can take a yellow to the inner corner of the eye and the beginning of the lower lash line. This last step is optional, but I liked the way it turned out. After you’re done all of these steps, you want to go back in and just make sure everything is well blended.

Once you are satisfied with the shadow look, it’s time for the stars of the show. You first go in with your liquid liner to line the lash line, and then do your wing. Next up is mascara, and I usually do two coats for more drama. If you feel the light green got overpowered on the lid, you can go back in on the inner corner of the lid with that light green shade.

PRO TIP: If you made a mistake with the liner, you can go in with your concealer to fix your line. You will want to use a good concealer brush for this so that you can be precise.

PRO TIP: If you accidentally got mascara on the shadow, leave it there for a minute and let it dry. Then take a brow brush or spoolie and gently brush over the spot of mascara. It will pull off the mascara without wrecking your makeup!

This metallic lip color was actually super simple to create. I basically just applied my nude lipstick to prime my lips and give the loose shadow something to cling to. Then I just went in with my middle green shadow color and applied it with a damp brush on top of the lipstick. I applied my finishing spray to finish out the look, and it did have pretty decent staying power. I had to reapply the shadow a bit in the afternoon after eating an apple, but that is to be expected when you have shadows on your lips and you eat something like that.

I just love the way this look turned out! If you decide to recreate it, come back and share your results! I’d love to see other approaches.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
