5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)

Hourglass For Imitation of Christ Spring 2012. Create The Look

I am happy to share the look that was created by Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke for the Imitation of Christ Spring 2012 runway show which took a place on the 8th September at the W Hotel at Union Square.

“The theme of the show was a super-chic wedding party and designer Tara Subkoff orchestrated the affair to seem like a lighthearted walk down the aisle. To accompany the distinctly romantic and playful mood, Brooke devised a look that showcased flawless skin, vivid eyes and pale lips. “It’s about clean, beautiful and memorable makeup—it is a wedding after all,” says Brooke. “This look is timeless, it’s never going to go out of style.”

Even the inspirations testified to the classic motif: Elizabeth Taylor in A Place in the Sun (1951), Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief (1955), and Catherine Deneuve in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, a 1964 French musical.”

Here are the products that were used:

  •  Each model was prepped with a new Primer Serum, launching in Summer 2012, which treats your skin as it prepares it for makeup. It is a silky, luxurious oil blend that glides on to create a retexturized surface for foundation, hydrates the complexion and triggers a sensory experience with a host of fragrant essential oils. Suitable for all skin types. Formulated with

Hourglass Cosmetics Bronzed Summer Look With Vol.6 Eye Palette

I am back home at last and I have to say that it was the most amazing trip ever. I was so happy to see my friends and family! I hope you had a lovely  Easter, too.

A lot of readers have been asking me about the Hourglass Cosmetics Vol.6 Eye palette so here is the preview of this beauty! It will be available in August exclusive to Barney’s as a part of the Fall collection but I am not sure about the price yet.

It looks like a prefect basic eye palette. By the way, if you want to see this palette, as well as the new Script eye liner, in action  make sure that you watch the video where the amazing Artistic Director of Hourglass and a celebrity Make-up Artist Gina Brooke shows how to create  a beautiful bronzed summer look.
