Lancome From Lancome With Love Makeup Collection for Spring 2016

With their Spring 2016 makeup collection – From Lancome With Love the brand is definitely aiming at the younger audience with the playful illustrations, tins the products come in and pastel shades.

The promo image with blue and pink shades makes me smile and think of a beautiful spring ahead of us. It looks romantic and carefree, if you ask me. And we all need that…

Products for lips are:

Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Makeup Collection for Spring 2016

Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 makeup collection is exactly what we all need in January. Gorgeous highlighter, and refreshing pink for lips, nails and cheeks. There are also a brown eye liner, grey mascara and colourful eye shadows.

It is a light pink highlighter  that leaves the skin radiant and luminous.  Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season.

There is also a new shade of the cult  Le Prisme Blush (£32) in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.

I love the idea of the brand’s  Mister Scrub (£22 ) which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and  Mister Gentlebalm (£22) which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.

The nail polish in this collection is the pastel pink Le Vernis (£17)  in 29 Rose Divin

As for the eye products:

Burberry Beauty: AW15, Contouring and SS16

Here is a  preview of what is new from Burberry, some things are already out, and some will be available only for Spring.

Although it seems that we have seen it all when it comes to contouring, the brand just released their version of the shading products. And I personally really love the look of them.

Burberry Face Contour - Effortless Contouring Pen Face & Eyes

 Effortless Contouring Pens Face & Eyes in Medium No. 01 and  Dark No. 02. are designed to  effortlessly sculpt the face, the results look very natural and the technique is fool-proof (watch a video below). Already available from Sephora for $37 and soon to be available from Harrods.

Here is a video with Wendy Rowe showing how she create the look for the SS16 show, and how to use the contouring pens. And it is always

SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is  foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper  (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.

And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:

SS16 Foundations Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)

“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”

Dior Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Broad Spectrum,  ( £33 from Selfridges and from $50 from Saks)

“Everlasting 16-hour perfection from morning to
