Here is, as promised, the second part of my Favourite Beauty Products of 2014 features.
This time it’s all about the eyes & lips. Enjoy, and don’t forget to share yours.
Eye Shadows Platte – theBalm Shady Lady Vol 2 (review)
I have re-discovered this beauty in summer, and this was the palette I travelled with most of the times, amazing formulas, great colour selection, thin packaging and great mirror – what else do you need? theBalm eye shadows are among the best.
Mascara – Clarins Be Long (review)
I’ve managed to get lush looking lashes with Be Long, it separates perfectly, is never clumpy, and gives a nice , rather dramatic effect, if you use several coats. The brush, for me, is mess-free. I have recommended it to several friends, and they loved it, too.
Cream Eye Shadow – Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review)
Definitely one of the coolest eye shadows I’ve discovered in ages. Mousse-like texture that allows you to get a sheer hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense look. It is stunning both ways!
Eye Shadows – Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow in Solstice Halcyon (review)
I will be honest, it’s hard to count how many times I’ve watched the videos from the new Tom Ford campaign Lips & Boys (will be available from the 28th; and from Selfridges)I may even shared it with some of my friends, too…
Lips & Boys is a limited edition collection of 50 lipsticks which are divided into 10 colour groups. Each has a name of a guy.
Now, I wish you could choose the name you wanted. I am sure the brand would charge a lot for the option. But I want to have a lipstick the name, not just any boy’s name.
Corals to Oranges: Luca, Matthew, Adriano, Tomas, Rafael
Reds: Rory, Diego, Alejandro,Luciano, Leonardo.
Violets to Orchid: Olivier, Julian, Pablo, Xavier, Liam
Plums: Collin, Didier, Guillermo,
I have posted about a lot of new lip launches but what about the eyes? Don’t worry, there are a lot of exciting new products, as well. Cream, powder, singles, duos, palettes. There is something for everyone.
Let’s take a look…
Chantecaille Le Chrome Luxe Eye Duos, $58/ £48
The duos inspired by Venice: Grand Canal Duo in Laguna, a flattering green gray, and Rialto, a radiant gold and Piazza San Marco Duo in Pigeon, a midnight purple, and Marble a soft gray.
Tom Ford Cream Color, $42/£28
Metallic, pigmented and highly reflective molten-toned eye shadows from Tom Ford are pure luxury. The shades are Platinum and Spice.
Tom Ford lipsticks are as luxurious, as it gets! They are just the best in everything – formula, packaging, performance. I love my Bruised Plum as much, as you possible can like a lipstick. Read – I am slightly obsessed.
This is why the newest release from Mr. Ford made my beauty loving heart beat faster, which doesn’t happen that often these days, as I see new products literally every day.
So, the new TF lipsticks are called Lip Color Matte. There are 8 shades so far, with two being a Limited Edition.
Above you can see my favourites: Ruby Rush, Plum
Berry lips are my favourite actually. And, although they are super hot for AW, I can wear them at any time. And so should you, don’t limit yourself by anything… By the way, have you see the gorgeous look from Dolce & Gabbana SS15 show that Pat McGrath created (check out the photos below)?
I think every girl should own a nice berry/plum lipstick. Which one? It only depends on the shade that you prefer and your budget.
So here are two options: very different price point but are utterly divine anyway.
Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum (review and lip swatches)
Tom Ford beauty started with lipsticks, and they are still the most covetable item from his line. Luxurious packaging, TF logo, beautiful texture and flattering shades. If £37/$50 price point is something you would consider – it is an amazing “investment”. My friends are
