Here is a preview of Givenchy Les Saisons summer 2016 makeup collection which is all about the sun-kissed complexion and innovative textures.
Poudre Bonne Mine, £36
Cult Givenchy bronzing powders in Moonlight Saison, Première Saison, Douce Saison, Ambre Saison and Extrême Saison.
“Based on new-generation technology, the formula is a baked gel which transforms into powder when applied. The Healthy Glow Powder naturally enhances the skin colour. It’s a daily indulgence that gives the complexion a perfectly “nude-skin effect” and healthy glow, thanks to its totally weightless texture, without any powdery veil. An unprecedented comfort which gives a long lasting tailor-made result.”
Mister Radiant Primer (£29 for 30 ml), Mister Radiant Bronzer (£29 for 30 ml), Mister Radiant Blush (£25 for 20 ml)
“Gorged with water, this sheer primer gel provides extreme freshness and glides on like a totally invisible and imperceptible veil with a nude finish. A unique combination of tinted microbeads work to naturally exalt the radiance of the complexion. UponRead More
It’s time for March beauty favourites, so here are the products that really stood out for me.
Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily (review and lip swatches)
Back in the days I was singing praises to Gloss Prodige, and recently I’ve re-discovered my love for it. It has a nice scent, brilliant moisturising formula and the most beautiful nudish pink shade. This is probably my favourite lip gloss that I own.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo (review and swatches)
I have been using this palette almost every day, and recently wrote a detailed review about it, you get four eye shadows with a unique sateen matt light texture which feels weightless on but still has a nice pigmentation. TheRead More
Here is a weekly edition of the newest makeup products for face, eyes and lips that caught my attention:
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush ($34 from Sephora)
The shade shown is Dahlia (cabernet). Other shades are: Blushed Copper – copper, Camellia – ballerina pink, Foxglove – orchid.
These blushes basically give you that glow and multi-dimensional, versatile blushes to create a subtle, shimmering flush. Apparently these blushes are inspired by Shimmering Skin Perfector and give the right balance of colour and light.
Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ( $21 from Sephora). There areRead More
I was sent some samples from the young British brand Bagsy, and I am ready to share about the two lip products already.
Wow Lips Full Colour Chubby Stick in 02 Happy Days and Lip Velvet Soft Matte Lip Colour in 04 Living The Dream. Both are very girly, pretty and Spring-like shades of pink.
The first thing you notice when it comes to Bagsy is the absolutely gorgeous packaging which is unique for every product (there are maximum 4 shades in each line), it helps to create the mood for a particular shade. And, although the pinks I have here are not my personal favourite colours on myself, I can totally appreciate the floral and feminine print, for some reason it also makes me think of ballerinas.
Besides the design, you just can’t help but fall in love with the quotes they’ve printed on each packaging. We have enough of negativity in life already, so makeup should bring a smile on our faces, and Bagsy products do exactly this. And, yes, EVERY girl deserves to be pretty today!Read More
Clarins Sunshine makeup collection for Summer 2016 is just WOW! So far my favourite summer release I’ve seen.
So why do I say it is so special?
There is a new shade of Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil (£19) in 03 Red Berry. Considering how insanely popular these are – it will be a sell out. Clarins Lip Oil is a non-sticky oil derived from plant extracts:oil, annatto oil and organic jojoba oils.
Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (£18) in 01 Golden Peach, 02 Golden Sand, 03 Silver Taupe and 04 Copper Brown. They are LE!
These should be absolutely amazing, I am hoping for a thin formula which will last even in the heat. Here is an official description: “A soft cream formula which glides easily onto the eyelids. Fine pearl particles provide shimmering colour to subtly illuminate the eyes and bitter orange tree wax helps to create a protective, filmogenic shield against water and humidity to ensure long-lasting waterproof hold.”
Another product which I am personally excited about isRead More
