Last week I’ve spent several hours re-organizing my lipsticks: sorting out what to give away, coordinating what is left colour-wise, getting out the shades I should use more often and making a wish-list of what I want to check out. And don’t we all want new lip products for Spring?
Here is a selection of some new products that you can check out. And oh my goodness, those Gucci and Dior lipsticks look incredible! Mostly because, to be honest, I am kind of tired of those matte opaque lipsticks, gimme all the shine and gloss.
Described as the new-generation lacquer stick which are as easy to apply as it is to wear. You get colour and comfort of a lip balm, it also promised about 6 hours of wear. Dior lipsticks are amazing so I expect a lot from this one. There are tonnes of shades to choose from, even a blue one.
“Creating a dewy, fresh look, Gucci Sheer Lipstick’s light creamy formula glides on evenly and smoothly to the lips, moisturizing while infusing with a semitransparent color.” Those colours look so
I am sorry for the lack of updates but I have been very busy with work and one project I am currently involved in. But since I have decided to sort out my makeup, I’ve wanted to post about some of the affordable eye shadow palettes that I am passing onto my friends (three of them,
one I am keeping for myself).
I am also giving away like 30 lipsticks which makes me kind of proud. I should really give away a lot more, but I could never bring myself to parting with my precious. Think Gollum from The Lord Of The Rings, ahem.
But here are the palettes.
And they are Max Factor, Maybelline, L’Oreal and Makeup Revolution.
This is the one that I am keeping for myself. But, in my defense, I am giving away some other palettes not shown on the photo. While the photo is not the best quality you can still see how incredibly pigmented these eye shadows are. They are really smooth and
For Givenchy’s summer 2017 makeup collection Nicolas Degennes was inspired by gysophila flowers.
The star of the collection is definitely the gorgeous Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder in 02 Douce Saison (£44) which features the Gypsophila pattern and adds glow to the complexion. The formula is crafted from a liquid gel, which evaporates when baked to leave only pigment behind, this is why the product, according to the brand, has a long-lasting finish and a natural-looking and flattering colour.
There are also two colourful eye products: Noir Couture Volume Waterproof Mascara
in 02 Blue Gypsophila (£25.50). And you may know that I am die hard fan of this mascara. And an
Long gone are the days when I was buying all those huge eye shadows palettes one, after another and blending 4-5 shadows together to create a look. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
This is why now I am mostly excited about the single or the duo releases. And just when I thought that I don’t want any eye shadows, Chanel are releasing these new beauties as a part of their Yeux Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection.
While I have selected the shades I will be trying out, there are many more other variants which also include yellow, blue and other more daring options.
And how cool are the looks Lucia Pica created on Kristen Stewart? Simple yet
Kind Natured, an affordable natural brand (it is promised that the products are free of Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals; and are 97% natural in general) brought out two new lines recently, and I was kindly sent some products to try out.
Two new ranges are:
- Shea & Macadamia – described as deeply nourishing and formulated for very dry skin.
- Coconut & Monoi – described as moisturising and formulated for normal and dry skin
Each line has three products so far: Foaming Sugar Scrub (£5.99), Body Lotion (£5.99) and a Hand Cream (£4.99).
So what are my thoughts?
First of all, I think it was a clever idea to bring out the scented products at this time of year when we all are a bit tired of the cold months and crave the sun. Both lines have that sweet exotic scent, and make me personally think of a summer holiday and cocktails on the beach, they are like a summer-in-a-bottle. Although the
