SS19 Eye Shadows: Dior, Viseart, Givenchy, theBalm, L’Oreal

I did write about the bronzers and some new lip products that caught my attention this month, so let’s take a look at the eye shadows.  By the way, I often post previews over at  Makeup4all Facebook page, so you may want to give it a like.

First of all, how cool are the new Colour Queen eye shadows from L’Oréal. These are oil infused apparently, they will come in 36 shades. [Pic  is from Val Garland’s insta]. I want that dark chocolate and red.

Want It: Givenchy Disturbia Collection

Givenchy give most other beauty companies a run for their money when it comes to packaging lately.

I am a huge fan of the Noir Couture mascara and I also loved their felt tip eye liner, and that makes me very excited for the new Disturbia collection, I have my eyes on the black mascara, besides these three,  and the eye liner in the red packaging. I am being that specific because there is also a red mascara (which looks burgundy on the promos; LE), and an eye liner in a black packaging.

I’ve bought a mini NARS mascara just because it was in red, and good thing I’ve got a small one, it smudges like crazy, and I prefer the Givenchy design anyway. Basically, you can put anything in a red tube and I already want it, simple as that.

What about the products?

The liner is promised to be intense, smudge-proof and  waterproof while delivering an intense black colour.

The mascara is described as the one to give  “excessive volume and dramatic curve. A volume and curve effect, so excessive, they are almost disturbing!” The brush is silicone.

I have noticed that  both products are sold out already, and why am I not surprised, so we’ll have to wait for the restocks. Givenchy is available online from Saks  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.

The price for both is €29.

Dark Lips. Get The Look: Chanel Autumn 2020 and Alternative Products

Long time readers will know that I am a huge fan of a dark lip, so I am obviously loving the beauty look from the latest Chanel show. Lucia Pica kept the face and eye makeup minimal to make it look fresh and modern.

On the lips she used the new products which will be a part of the Autumn collection (out in July), and, no doubt, will be a big hit: ROUGE ALLURE VELVET EXTRÊME in N°130 Rouge Obscur  and ROUGE COCO GLOSS in N°816 Laque Noire.

Other products used for the look were:

Victoria Beckham Made Me Do It: Sarah Chapman Ultimate Cleanse

This feature was sitting in drafts for months now, so finally I’ve got around writing about it.  I’ve been hearing a lot of  incredible things about Sarah Champan’s Skinesis line,  I’ve listened to many interviews with her, and she seemed like such a knowledgeable lady, and also extremely passionate about her company. It also did not hurt that some of friends love the line, and  Victoria Beckham is a fan. I mean…

This cleanser actually ended up  in my  2018 favourites and here is why.

It is a luxurious oil based cleanser that is a pleasure to use. Works great for massaging the skin (here is Sarah’s tutorial) and leaves it clean, smooth and soft.  And even glowing and radiant, I honestly think so!  Also, it never makes my [dry] skin feeling tight or  dry.

The gentle balm turns into  milk when
