When you have been around for a while (it will be 9 years next month), you can remember posting about the Pantone Colour of the Year a few times: Greenery, Marsala, Radiant Orchid, Emerald and Tangerine Tango.
So it is time to take a look at the colour of 2018 which is Ultraviolet.
Here is how it is officially described: “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future“.

I have always been a fan of glossy eye lids, and it is kinda cool to see that it is a big trend now. Here is a look I have created with the Rouge Bunny Rouge eye gloss back in 2012. If you haven’t tried the glossy eye lid look, definitely do, it is so effortless, fun and sexy. Sounds like such a cliche thing which is said about every “trend”, but in this case it really is all of that.
You can always get the RBR or MAC eye glosses. Or try the new options. And now it is very easy to get the one you like, considering that even such brands as Bobbi Brown and YSL now have them.

Speaking of nail polishes, back in 2012 a very similar but a bit more pastel pistachio was the hottest shade for manicure, every brand would bring out a shade like that, and this one was my personal favourite. I remember how I’ve created a whole list with over 20
Have you noticed that some of brands that specialized in one concrete product are now expanding their game? Like previously two nail polish only brands like Ciate and butter LONDON are now doing makeup(which is not news any more). But it is their liquid lipsticks that are relatively new, and that look incredible. See for yourself!

The shades shown are: La Moss and Come To Bed Red. And I actually have La Moss – so here is a review and swatches.

Besides contouring and eye brow products almost every brand is brining out some kind of new lipstick this season. And it makes sense, as it it the easiest way to get into SS, beauty wise. I have already featured so many, but here are two newest offerings from butter LONDON and Clinique.
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($17.50 from Sephora)
Lightweight formula with a smoothing primer, gives a bold beautiful colour and as Clinique describe it a “modern-velvet finish”. I like how each shade has a corresponding packaging. There are 16 to choose from.
