Loving Luna

It was inevitable. New Moon is around the corner, so a Twilight-themed makeup line? I'm honestly surprised it took this long to come out. I mean, come on... Slap the Twilight name on just about anything and you're almost guaranteed a huge win. So what do we have here, exactly? Some cheesy products with vampire-related names?

Hardly. It actually looks like a nice range of high quality products made by DuWop, a pretty awesome makeup brand by itself.

One of DuWop's most popular products is Lip Venom - one of the original lip plumpers that burst onto the scene a few years ago.

This product was practically destined for a Twilight-Tie-In. It has the name Venom already so it's perfect. I'm actually not a huge fan of lip plumpers - I can't stand the burning/tingling sensations on my lips, but I know some friends swear by this stuff. Who knows, Twilight Venom might be worth a try since it's got what looks to be a red lip stain at the bottom. Could be interesting.

I'm actually more interested in the other lip products in this collection. First up - 'Just Bitten' Staining Balm.

I rarely wear lipstick. Most of the time I prefer to play up my eyes instead of my lips and I just like the look of gloss more than the heavy pigment of lipstick. I've also got to say that lip stains scare me. Something about how hard they are to get off just freaks me out completely. This stuff doesn't look scary at all, though! The description says it's a balm that has a ton of antioxidants, emollients, and natural sun protection. I'm a lip balm addict, so if you give me all that great stuff plus a little color? I'm definitely down for a test drive.

I'm a huge sucker (haha sorry... cue the cheesy pun jokes!) for fun packaging and pretty pink lip gloss. I have a huge collection of glosses and about 90% of them are various shades of pink. This 'Femme Fatale' Lip Gloss in Butterfly Kiss looks like it's right up my alley! Actually, the other colors available look really pretty as well. '53 Chevy looks like a lovely raspberry red, and Hush and Kindle both look like pretty nude/pale pink colors.

When it comes down to it almost everything in this collection looks like it could be fun. The 'Moonshadow' Eyeshadow duos have some great colors, especially Snow Storm, and I'm dying to check out the 'Mortal Glow' Bushing Creme.

Anybody else excited for this collection? Or New Moon for that matter? I know I am!
