Here is a preview of the best new high-street launches, in my opinion. Eyes, lips and cheeks category.

Last week I was sorting out my nail polish collection, and realized that I never posted about the nail polish (and several other) which I’ve bought over a year ago, and which was a huge back then.
And I am talking about Max Factor’s Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire.
It is a sheer and very complex blueish purple with reddish shimmer. A total beauty! I even did not paint my nails red this week, just to wear this…

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)
I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect. Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.
