SS2011 Beauty: Statement On The Lips at Gucci and Armani

Here are two more looks that I really love from the SS2011 shows. The first one is from Gucci with the classic red lips and the second one is from Armani Prive with a dark lip and a blue crystal which I really like.

Both Freja and Bianca have amazing lip shape and I also love how amazing their  skin tone looks like, great job by Make-Up Artists.

It is great how everything else is kept neutral, this is the kind of look I am loving right now: accent on the lips, groomed eye brows, flawless complexion and a bit of a blush. But I would probably also add some eye liner for myself.

Nails Of The Day: Inglot 722 Yellow Nail Polish

I am a fan of a yellow nail polish for a long time already and I even posted one shade of yellow before.

But I wanted the other shade of yellow for this SS and it was BEFORE I saw Mimosa, so no, this purchased was not influenced by Chanel. I just couldn’t find the shade I wanted for a long time.   But luckily I’ve managed to find it at Inglot. By the way, they have 4 or 5 yellow nail polishes from very pale, almost white pastel to a dark orangey yellow.

So here is the nail polish which I’ve got.

To tell the truth, you need some skills to apply it as this nail polish is unforgiving and it will show all the imperfections. And yes, everyone will look on your nails when you are wearing such a bright yellow.

After some errors I’ve managed to paint my nails but I still can’t say that I am very happy with the effect. But practice makes perfect as we all know.

To make this nail polish look nice I would recommend

Daniel Sandler High Impact Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches

I want to tell you about the lipsticks which I’ve been loving a lot lately – High Impact lipsticks by Daniel Sandler.

First of all I have to say that I like the simple and elegant design which reminds me of Hourglass Cosmetics. I also like that the lipsticks are slim, I’ve always loved slim lip products. This is how the package looks like.

I was given two shades to try out and I really like both of them, the shades that I have are called Azalea and Fresh.

Here is how they look like swatched

Want It: Sleek True Colour Lipsticks

I love bright matte lipsticks so I was very happy to find out that Sleek released a new series of  lipsticks which are called True Colour and which retail for £4 only.
