A Lipgloss for a Bombshell

March 13, 2010

We were very excited at BB HQ when we laid eyes on the new lip glosses from e.l.f – there’s one for all of our favourite bombshells – and there’s a shade called Bombshell!

First up there’s the new Studio 2-in-1 Conditioning Gloss (£3.50) which is for the bombshell who likes to stand out in the crowd. Perfect for Jayne Mansfield (right) then, we reckon. This flashy wonder gloss packs a double punch, ideal for making a statement. The shimmering lip colour glaze in the inner tube and the clear moisturising vitamin and shea butter infused gloss in the outer tube combine seamlessly on application to create a healthy yet voluptuous pout. That’s Jayne all over. It comes in eight juicy shades: Bedazzled, Golden, Fanatic,  Golden, Love It, Perfect Pink – sure to be Jayne’s choice, Plumtastic, Supermodel  and Va Va Voom.

Then we’ve got Studio Lip Stain (£3.50), perfect for the bombshell about town, so we’ve got to give this one to Lauren Bacall. It’s a double ended lip stain and clear gloss – a  lip gloss lovers dream. The long wear lip stain formula locks in colour to give an on-trend matt finish whilst the clear gloss contains a revitalising vitamin infusion that – when applied over the lip stain – gives lip a hydration boost.

Locked in colour, ideal for the girl who is always on the go. It comes in eight shades, including Bombshell! The other seven are Birthday Suit, Fashionista, First Date, Heartbreaker, Lucky Lady, Mysterious and Red Carpet.

The Studio Lip Balm (£3.50) is ideal for the natural beauty – which bombshell would qualify for that we wondered? We then decided on Faye Dunaway, for her natural, nude beauty of the 1960s, which has inspired Kate Moss today.This lovely balm conditions your lips, keeping them baby soft for bombshell pouts!

Studio Minty Gloss (£3.50) is for the sensual girl – who else could that be other than Marilyn Monroe. Thanks to a dose of mint extract this gloss tastes as good as it looks, it’s shiny and pout-enhancing – Marilyn would have loved it!  It’s available in six colours, each named after a different US city – we think MM would have chosen LA or New York, but you can also choose from Boston, Miami, Nashville and Seattle.

And then there’s the new Mineral Lip Gloss (£3.00) which we reckon is perfect for the girl next door -and therefore not really a bombshell favourite. It’s 100 per cent  mineral based,  has a silky formula that glides on without being too sticky while having a strong enough pigment to significantly yet subtly enhance natural lip colour.

It comes in six shades – Fierce, Night Owl, Pageant Princess, Sorority Girl, Trendsetter and Trophy Wife – we reckon that would have been perfect for non-bombshell, yet pretty Princess and, well, trophy wife, Grace Kelly, pictured right!
