I think I’m seeing a pattern here. Cherries seem to be a trending topic on this blog lately. After officially declaring my love for Clinique Cherry Pop lipstick and Mac Cherry lipliner (‘blog official’ is right up there with ‘facebook official’, right?), I think it’s time for another cherry-related product review! Let’s say this one’s the cherry on top. Ha!
Back in december I visited the ‘I LOVE BEAUTY’ event in the Netherlands where I picked up some goodies. One of the things I brought home with me is a line of lovely smelling skin care products called ‘My Red Carpet is Cherry’, by the brand Fruttini. I had never tried this brand before, but I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised! Their products are very affordable and what’s best about it is that they’re vegan! I’m not a vegan myself obviously, but I am a fan of anything nature friendly. So my picks were a body scrub, shower gel and a hand cream. They had so many more amazing products, but I just felt the need to buy these three pieces of the cherry line. Because cherry.
The body scrub and shower gel have a very similar smell to them, it reminds me of cherry-flavored candy so it makes me happy. :-) If you’re not into sweet or fruity scents this might not be what you’re looking for, but otherwise you’ll love it! The hand cream smells a bit different. I find it a bit less fresh and fruity and more warm and cozy.. Is that even a way to describe a scent? It could be just me, but it’s as if I can smell a subtle hint of vanilla mixed with the cherry.. I love it!
The hand cream is exactly what I need in these cold winter months, because my hands tend to get dry a lot. This cream is a life saver and it has deserved a worthy spot in my bag! The shower gel and body scrub do exactly what they need to do — nothing extraordinary. But that SMELL.. holy potato. It’s just too good, I can’t even.
Are you into fruity scents?
I like to think that I am not the best reviewer when it comes to — well, anything! I’m just too naive to be a good judge. So even though you’re seeing this post about a fabulous cherry red lipliner, it’s really just me showing you some pictures and being proud of my new loot. Same goes for the other upcoming product posts. I mean, I have to do something with my very much appreciated Christmas presents other than smearing them all over my face, am I right?! ;-)
I’m gonna be honest — I love wearing my Clinique Cherry Pop lipstick from time to time (more cherries!) but I was missing that nice and polished look of a lipliner base. I was in desperate need of a good ol’ red lipliner to go with this lipstick. I know there’s plenty of good reds out there, but after abusing my MAC Whirl lipliner almost daily I knew I had to get another MAC liner to add to my tiny collection (gotta start somewhere!). After hearing a lot of good things from this liner, it landed on my wish list and my boyfriend ended up getting it for me for a Secret Santa gift! Thank you Secret Santa!
All I can say is that this lipliner has a beautiful deep red color and the pigmentation is crazy! I apply it over my Baby Lips (which is still my absolute favorite lip balm, by the way!) and I find it goes on very smooth and effortlessly. Stays on there pretty long, too! I like to top it off with Cherry Pop lipstick and I’m ready to go!
What is your favorite red lipliner?
