Current Love: Pink and Mauve Eye Shadows

I am having a major pink & mauve eye shadows moment right now. If you are a new reader, here is what kind of shades  I used to wear all the time.

I have been wearing Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Solstice Halcyon  at least several times per week during the last two months. And recently I’ve added some other eye shadows to my rotation. Which ones?

Pink and Mauve Eye Shadows MAC ArtDEco Rouge Bunny RougeRouge Bunny Rouge’s Solstice Halcyon: “semi-matte mauve beige”. It is such a perfect shade, I have already mentioned it so many times that you probably already know my love for it at this point :).

ArtDeco eye shadow 93: described as “pearly antique pink”. You can see that it is well-loved.  It adds just a hint of warm rose colour to the lid. It is not too metallic, just a

SS2014 New Lip Products: Dior, MAC, Laura Mercier, Dolce&Gabbana, Smashbox and GOSH

So many new lip products were launched recently, so let’s take a look at some of them:

Dior Fluid Stick, £26, available in 16 shades.

Dior know how do make good lip products and how to present them!Probably the most exciting launch. This is basically a super-pigmented and glossy “liquid lipstick”. I would recommend checking out Dior’s website for all the details, tips and the awesome promo video. This launch reminded me why I love makeup so much, it is beautiful, and inspiring…

Dolce&Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick, £24. Available in 9 shades.

If I’d like a beauty product inspired by a celebrity – that would be definitely inspired by Monica Bellucci, she is the most gorgeous woman, in my opinion. I just only have to decide which shade to get now…

Want It: MAC and Proenza Schouler Makeup Collection for Summer 2014

I don’t really keep a track of all the MAC collections, and I am also not the one who runs out out and buys every single item, but sometimes their releases do make my beauty-loving heart beat faster.

I remember HOW excited I was about their collection with Gareth Pugh (of course, I did buy some things, which I treasure and barely use).

The products are:

Spring 2014 New Lip Products: Bobbi Brown, Topshop, MAC, Lancome and Illamasqua

Brands do spoil us with the new lip products launches,  as there are even more coming out!

First of all, I am personally very excited about the new Lip Lover lip lacquers by Lancome. Lancome lip products are among my favourites, and these do look promising. You can see how they look like on Lily Collins here. I did a RT of Alex Babsky’s makeup on her. These should be available from March.

I am also curious about the new Gloss Ink Lip Color £8/$16 by Topshop.

It is supposed to have a  high-shine finish of a gloss and the long-lasting color of a stain. The brand suggests that it can be worn over other products, on it’s own or blotted for a matte, stained look.  There are five shades, and I love  Cruel, pictured below.
