Fall Trend: Green Nail Polish

Looks like green nail polish is a big trend this Fall! Here are just some green nail polishes that I’ve chosen. I love Illamasqua Viridian (peacock green with metallic finish) and butter LONDON British Racing Green (dark, “hunter green” ) the best (which is obvious if you know me)!

Nail polishes in order they are shown:

  1. NARS Zulu
  2. butter LONDON British Racing Green

Want It: MAC Cosmetics Flighty Collection

Now this is something from MAC that I would really love to try as I love cream/mousse eye shadows. Their new collection is called Flighty and will be released in the US on the 5th of May.

It contains 15 Big Bounce Cream Eye Shadows (hope they are permanent) and colourful Zoom Lash mascaras. Here are more photos

Makeup Trend: Eye Gloss

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.

Bobbi Brown just launched three  shades (£19.50 from Harvey Nichols and $28 from Barneys), and they will be a huge hit, for sure. You can choose from Beach Nude, Island Pink and Nude.  YSL offer just a clear option Yves Saint Laurent Eye Gloss Smudger ($30 from Nordstrom).

But if you want a colourful eye gloss, and from a more niche brand, I’ve got you covered, too. Here are three options for your consideration.

New Dazzle Lipstick by MAC: 13 Sparkling Shades

I love MAC lipsticks! I love almost all finishes and am happy to hear that the new finish called Dazzle is already available!

It is described as:

“High-shine lip color meets triple-drama sparkle and shine when multi sizes of pearl pigments team up with rich, creamy color to create a superb glam-rock effect for the lips. Layerable. Long-wearing. Hydrating for smooth application.”

I wonder what they mean by sparkle and pearl pigments, I hope not big pearls that feel like sand on your lips.

So far 13 shades are available
