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.
Earthy Canvas, Smoky Canvas, Coral Canvas and Rose Canvas. There are three finishes in each: metallic. glitter and matte.
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 Marcus, Barneys, Harrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.
The price for both is €29.
May means that pretty much all of the summer collections are out, including all the pretty bronzers. I have chosen six that caught my eye. But it seems that I will have to feature more a bit later.
Chanel duo bronze et lumièreBronzer And Highlighter Duo, $70 from Chanel
As all bronzers in this feature, it comes in 2 shades: Clair and Medium (shown). You get a matte bronzer and an iridescent highlighter. I looks pretty perfect to me.
How cool are the LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, FEMININITÉ writings on the bronzer? You get 4 shades in each compact to bronze and contour. You can get 1 Warm Liberte or 2 Warm Sensualite.
Clarins summer bronzers are some of the best on the market, I still really love
Spring/Summer season beauty wise means new lip releases, so I’ve chosen the ones that caught my attention. It is insane how the textures and the formulas improve all the time and we get more sophisticated lip products all the time. Just take a look at these innovative gems.
A limited edition creamy matte lip powder trio with a metallic sheen. Comes with a moisturizing Base Balm to prep the lips. These look really cool, and I love the concept.
Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. The red ones sold out within a day(s) so I did not even have time to get any. But she promised a restock, and new nude and fuchsia shades (see below a pic of Eva wearing one of the new shades; pic is from Lisa’s Insta)! I don’t know the date yet.
BITE BEAUTY Outburst Longwear Lip Stain, $24 from Sephora
Bite beauty lip products are incredible, and it looks like it’s another great one
Mascara is probably the makeup product. And usually even those ladies who are not into makeup love themselves some mascara so I’ve decided to dedicate this week to mascaras, and we will start with looking at my all time favourites. I’ve selected six: five black and my all time favourite colourful mascara.
Here we go:

- Dior DiorShow Extase Mascara review)
- Smith & Cult Lash Dance Mascara Review
- YSL Faux Cils Mascara Review
