MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

It is my Birthday this Sunday so I though I’d get myself something nice. By something nice I usually mean luxury makeup.

I also wanted to try Shellac (better late than never right?) so I did get a manicure. A red one! I will write a post about it in 2 weeks.  Now the only thing that is left – get my hair done but I can’t think of what I want. I don’t want any huge changes…

But back to the makeup. I wanted to get some Chanel and Guerlain but guess what? ALL products that I’ve wanted to get were out of stock!!! Unbelievable.

Most of all I wanted to get 2 shades from the Guerlain Spring range but the 2 shades that I wanted were sold out!

Here is a preview of Illmasqua’s SS  2011 makeup collection Toxic Nature which is all about colour: both pastels and neon shades. The promo images are stunning as always, I love the first one the best.

New Cream Pigment, £17

The Toxic Nature collection has spawned a wild spray of corrupted colours and poisonous pastels in an intensely colour-rich, crease resistant, matt formula that introduces a brand new product to the Illamasqua range.

Six neo-toxic colour mutations create the ultimate in textures on your face, eyes, lips or body. Apply with an Illamasqua brush or simply use your fingers for a buildable, water resistant, highly pigmented finish. Layer under Powder Eye Shadow and Pure Pigments for intensity.

Illamasqua Cream Pigment; camouflague by colour for the neo-generation.

  • Dab, lilac with matt finish
  • Mould, grape with matt finish
  • Bedaub, mint with matt finish
  • Delirium, rose taupe with matt finish (EU only)
  • Hollow, toffee, with matt finish
  • Emerge, peach with matt finish (EU only)

Toxic Nature Lipstick, £15.50

Two toxic tones, Atomic and Flare, have evolved our intense, highly pigmented Lipstick into the ultimate urban survival tool for the neo-generation. Glides on smoothly, creating lips that entrance.

Philosophy Makes me Think about Spring

Now the new Philosophy products make me think of the beautiful spring , they look so juicy, bright and vibrant and can imagine how they smell. Probably very tasty and simply divine.

Just look at the names: Juicy Pomegranate, Blushing Pink Grapefruit,Tantalizing Tangerine, Luscious Lime,French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Chewy Chocolate Lollipop, Bubble Gum Lollipop, Sugar Chick, Orange Jelly Bean and I could go on…

I’d probably get a bottle of each but if I had to choose I’d go for these amazing sets:

oh lolli lollipop


bubble gum, chewy chocolate and fresh and fruity shower gels

“go ahead, be a sucker for bubble gum lollipop, chewy chocolate lollipop and fresh and fruity lollipop shampoo, shower gel & bubble baths.”

If you read the blog for some time now you may remember this post about the hair care products. And you may remember my attitude towards the  mayonnaise on hair, shampoo for horses and other things like that. I know that it works for a lot of people but I had no desire at all to try anything like that.

But when I got a travel version (60ml) of Mane ‘n Tail shampoo with my last zuneta order I gave up and decided to try the shampoo that was originally designed for horses but was reformulated for humans use.

This is what is written about it: “an exclusive original formula that contains high lathering cleansing agents fortified with moisturisers and emollients. The micro-enriched protein formula provides “down to the skin” cleansing action and conditioning, leaving the hair soft and shiny.”

So anyway, here is my impression.

I have quite a few Laura Mercier products on my list as I am interested in the brand lately so I was excited to find out that  a lot of new products launched recently. But I only have the prices in $ so far.

And they are:

Baked Eye Colour ($22)

According to LM these should that last all day. This smudge-resistant, lightweight eye color gently smoothes onto the lid for an even application. Ultra-blendable and versatile—apply dry with the Allover Eye Color Brush for an even wash of color, or wet with the Creme Eye Color Brush for a more vibrant effect.
