Lancome Bronze Azure Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Take a look at the beautiful Lancome Bronze Azure Collection for summer 2011. I have information about the US release so far and, as you know,  their summer collections by Lancome are a bit different with those that we have here.

So this collection includes:

  • Heat Wave – A warm palette with shades of soft gold, peach, copper and brown

Le Vernis in  Sarong, $19

Inspiration of March: Ginta Lapina

It’s been forever since I wrote my inspiration of the month for the last time. So I thought I’d share who inspired me a lot last month. And it was Latvian model – Ginta Lapina.

I first spotted her because of the Yves Saint Laurent makeup promo photos and I really liked her.

You can take a look at her NYMag profile here.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush Review and Swatches

If you read Makeup4all for some time now, you’ve probably noticed that I love cream/liquid/gel blushes and most of the time they are quite expensive. Well, luxurious blushes is something that I really like.

But is there a chance to get a great product for an affordable price? YES, there is! Today I want to tell you about the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blushes.

These are tiny and you can see how they look like when placed in my hand. I actually really love the size because it’s so easy to take the blush with you. But despite the size, it will take you forever to finish this product. You will need the smallest amount of these, especially when you have fair or light skin. I use just one or two dabs for both cheeks and that’s enough!

The shades that I have are called 18 Soft Cardinal and 09 Soft Murano  and here they are: natural light and flash.

Hourglass Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Script Precision Liquid Liner is a revolutionary new marker boasting one of the smallest felt tips on the market. Shaped more like a writing implement than a traditional liner, Script’s micro-fine, razor-point applicator measures just 0.5mm and elevates liner application to the realm of fine art. The abbreviated tip allows for unprecedented precision, exceptional control and a multiplicity of lines.

Here are also some useful  application tips by Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke:
