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

SS16 Luxury Eye Shadows: Tom Ford, Chantecaille, Cle de Peau

I have already posted about some new lipstick launches  but what about the eye shadows? Here is a selection of the most luxurious ones: Cle de Peau, Chantecaille and Tom Ford.   Cream or powder, single or palette – the choice is yours. Let’s take a look.

Cle pe Peau are launching brand new Cream eye color solo – ombre crème solo ($45 / 6g) which are “dewy cream eye shadow that transforms into a silky powder”, and they look gorgeous. I wonder what is the shade of that burgundy one from Lucia Pieroni’s Insta photo.  Is it 301? Probably, not.

Powder eye color solo limited edition – ombre poudre solo ($45 / 1g) “A silky soft long-lasting eye shadow that comes in three textures: shimmery, semi-matte and matte.”

SS16 Trend: Colour Correcting

Contouring? Strobing? Move over! There is a new trend in town, and that is colour correcting. It was around for some time but you know that it is official when it ends up on Sephora’s main page. I actually posted about some products already, such as BECCAYSL and tarte but there are tonnes of others.
